• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

So, the new system only sounded like crap because of my previous location. When I took the scanner mobile in the car I can hear everything loud and clear.

Who can update the reference page?

P/M me with your info. If you send me a codeplug I can program what you need then send it back to you. All you will need to do then is write it to the radio.

I've been listening to the Greater Portland area for quite some time now on my Uniden BCD436HP. Lately, it seems as if I'm not picking up anything from the Portland PD/Fire on the P25 or Motorola systems. I can hear the surrounding towns (Scarborough, Cape Elizabeth, etc...) but nothing from Portland proper. The scanner was setup by pulling down Uniden's database for my zip code and I haven't had any problems until recently. I also tried doing a full reboot of the scanner and erased all user data thinking I might've changed a setting by accident but still have problems tuning in. Has anything changed with these systems recently?
