• 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:

Wally - not knowing which county San Antonio resides, I didn't look it up in the db - however, 2 possibilities exist;

a. If it's a 400 mhz system, you need to program the base/offset to trunk properly. If you can scan the system conventionally and hear traffic, then this is likely to be your issue -or-

b. If you hear no traffic, that's an indication of what has been happening at military installations nationwide- they're moving to 380-390 Mhz, which your 996 will handle. The Texas forum, and others, would be the place to go for information on that.
