The manufacturers can make the scanner to receive encryption...obviously...but. but...when all utilities soon, one day go to encryption, this hobby will be out the door... 10 years ago we were analog, now were digital and encypted half way, at least here in canada....wahts to come in the near future? toss the scanner.

That would be a no. been trying for years, if you could it make your legal scanner do this , it would make it illegal.

You may have a priority channel selected if it refuses to scan.i believe most scanners will reset if you remove batteries for a period.some cellular channels are blocked in the USA so if it's not a cellular frequency and you are not in a country with restrictions then you really need to understand how to input a frequency it... Remember to adjust squelch as the squelch when turned fully on will not usually output any sound and lock scan if it's turned off in most cases.

Uniden police scanner


Yes they are a great digital radio scanner, not POLICE scanner,

Police around the world are fed up with people using these to listen in on their operations, and are progressively moving to digital mode, but a mode that these scanners wont pick up, P25 or not.

There are many other things to listen in on, and it doesn't involve the law, fire, ambulance services.

If you're in a country or state or city where these services have gone to digital mode, then you're out of luck, you will not here anything on their frequencies.

But that's what happens when silly people use these radios in pursuits or any other way that hinders the service from doing the duties.

I feel no pain for your loss.

I have a MP830 and when I try to scan in a doc. to my mac, it takes forever. I get this message "Processing calibration data from a scanner. Do not open the document cover."

The greater the detail setting the scanner is set to scan at, the greater will be the time taken to complete the scan process.

Lowering the detail settings may reduce the time taken to scan a document.
These settings may be found in the software that came with your printer.

Thanking you

Have uniden 396T. Control channel now on one system does not work

Have you put in more than one control channel for your area.

I always put as many of the red or blue Control channels in my area. I counted 23 Control Channels for the whole system. I would put everyone in if it were me.

I set the system up as "Control Channel Only".

In a metroploitan area you should be able to pick up another control channel on the system.

I use the Arc396Pro Software ato program my scanner. (available at ScannerMaster) I know in the Pro version you can download the information directly into your scanner. You can try this to be sure your settings are going in correctly.
