• 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:

PRO-96 on P25 System

Not sure if this is the best place or if the Colorado forum would be better, but here goes...

A friend of mine is trying to monitor the state system on Co.


He tells me that he is getting only the tail end of conversations. I remember this issue coming up before but I couldn't find anything on my searches.
Anyone have any ideas on this??

Thank you very much!!

Likely in an area where decoding rate is low or flip flopping. Have your friend manually select the CC and observe line 4 on display. If the decode rate doesn't maintain above 70 %, the problem described will occur. The Radio Shack 800 antenna (20-283) may help or try an external antenna.

One other point, often encryption may he used by one side of the transmission and clear on the other.
