• 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 may not be telling you professional scanner enthusiast anything about this problem resolved. I have been having problems hearing the Texas LCRA systems for the last year since I brought my BCD 396T scanner.

Today I saw where UPMAN from Uniden was explaining how to use agency two digit wild cards for the LCRA system to monitor all systems. This process worked very well and now I am receiving all types of information. It was simple I went to the LCRA Radio Reference site and looked up all the 2 digit agency numbers for the LCRA for all sites and placed them in the channel bank with a dash, (02-)

I just want to pass this on because it the past I have read where others have had similar problems.


Thanks

Joseph

When the LCRA freqs were put in the scanner, they were entered as narrowband frequencies. Clear the frequencies and re-enter the ones on the sites you wish to listen to as wide band frequencies. That should clear up the problem.
