• 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 use my handy dandy RS 800mhz whips, (which work great if I might add). and it picks up TH TRS like a dream.... But my scanners could also pick it up with just a plain rubber ducky..

Have you made sure you programmed your scanner correctly? can you hear the control channel? if so go through and make sure the freq's are put in correctly. Remeber to skip 00 slot...
