    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:

Hey Guys - I just programmed Delaware County into my SDS100 via Sentinel- I noticed I am not hearing anything on Sector 3 - Chester Township police. I am hearing traffic on all other sectors. Is that normal?

where in delco are you? you might not be able to hear the towers that broadcast that frequency. That is only licensed for tower sites #1,3,4,6 as per the FCC.

Chester Township would be on sector 1, 29 car.

Chester City is on sector 3., and moments ago I heard a transmission on sector 3.

You may not be able to receive Sectors 1 or 3 well, depending on your location. Reception for those will be better in the western and southern parts of the county.

FWIW ... I am in the Upper Darby-Lansdowne area and I can pick up the entire county, although sector 1 is a little scratchy. I'm using a Radio Shack Pro-197 with a RS mobile antenna inside my house.
