• 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:

I live in town of Eclectic Alabama. I can never get any transmissions on my PRO-95 with the Local Police and Fire Department. The only transmission I ever get is out of Pratville Alabama and that's Car to base communications. Is my Scanner on the Fritz? I know this small town hasen't changed to Digital. Also if I get a Freq for a particular subject I will punch it in and I would never hear anything on that freq. But if I would channel surf up or down I would find it somewhere else on a totaly different freq. Is that normal??

Can you share the frequencies that you have plugged in? Are the channels set to FM? Is Global ATTenuation turned off? I live in Elmore county, using a PRO-95, I've never had any trouble hearing the Eclectic Police or Fire Department. Hope we can get you monitoring...

I'm using the ones off the site's database 155.95500. Maybe you can give me a freq or two. I was really missing it today when this storm came through and Firetrucks and Ambulances speed off through town. Not sure what ATTenuation is.. :/ And did Tallasee go Digital? I use to could tune in but now I can't...
