• 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:

Paul (or others if you can answer),

In reviewing the communications protocol I noticed that the SQL steps on the 996 have been increased to 19 from the 396's 15:

996: Squelch Level (0:OPEN / 1-18 / 19:CLOSE)
396: Squelch Level (0:OPEN / 1-14 / 15:CLOSE)

Do all of the extra SQL steps on the 996 fall in the theoretical space between the 396's 0 and 1 settings? If not how many would you say comparatively fall between the 396's 0 and 1 settings?

What I'm trying to determine is how much closer to open on the 996 can we get then we could on the 396 (without actually being open).

Thanks ahead,

Brian.

I can tell you this - the squelch in the 996 seems to work like a "real" squelch, although it is of course not.
I think you will be much happier than on the 396 - the SQ on the 996 actually works!
