    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:

Actually in and around Texarkana with all the known control channels for the entire state in one bank and I got nada! I tried all 4 plans, same result. I was using my older BC 785 D.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

I assume you are talking about the AWIN system? If so, I think the 785 is only capable of 3600 bps. The control channels on the AWIN system are 9600bps. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

Thank you Mark.

Yes, I was talking about AWIN.

How dumb I am; I don't think I knew the 9600 bps requirement. Thanks for educating me.

Yep, 9600 is correct. The BC250D and BC785D scanners will not work. Only scanners that will work is:

BCD996T
BCD396T
BC796D
BC296D
Pro-2096
Pro-96

Thanks Safetyobc

I also have a 796D but was not aware of the limitation. In the future when in Ark. I'll remember, I hope.
