the beep are known as "over beeps", they are generated at the end of a transmission by the transmitting raido to signal that the user has taken his or her finger off the transmit button and has ended transmission, like how they used to say "over". as for the hissing, have you tried adjusting the squelch?

Cant pick up stations


Most police stations are using the new motorola trunking units, they are on encrypted custom band channels and you will not be able to hear them. All police helicopters are equipped with them. All i can hear where i live is Fire dispatch, I cant even hear the fire fighters responses .

Can I hear police on the scanner?


That will depend entirely on your location. While police and other service agencies formerly used basic, simplex radio systems, many have changed to modern trunking systems, some with digital transmissions. The BC92XLT is fine for the simplex, but is not capable of following trunked systems or receiving digital signals.

Can you listen to a police frequency if it's trunked with this scanner? Uniden BC72xlt


You can listen to trunked police bands UNLESS: 1 they went Digital and your scanner is Analog. 2. They use an encrypted control frequency. 3. It is not against the law in your area. 4. you have a Trunked scanner. Following trunked frequencies requires a trunked scanner which is very different from regular everyday scanners. If the photo of your scanner is accurate then it appears you have Digital capability so that won't be a problem. You can go to Radio shack and purchase a book on Public Safety frequencies and Control Frequencies which will give you the proper frequency range but they will tell you nothing about Encryption on any Frequency. If you can not find a Control Frequency then you will not be able to track the hoping that is used in a trunked system. By the way, a Regular scanner runs about $50 where as a Trunked Scanner runs $150 to $200.

Motorola k7gt9500 police channel in manassas virginia?


Your Motorola radios operate in the FRS/GMRS band, which is at 462 MHz. Police, fire, EMS services, etc. operate in the 150 or 800 MHz bands. Your radios cannot receive public service transmissions, and they cannot be modified to do so. Monitoring public service transmissions will require a scanner.

Hi, About a month or so ago, our local Police can't be heard on our scanner anymore. Did they change the frequency? Do they have a new one?


I don't know your location, but it's possible that your local police have upgraded to a trunked radio system.If that's the case you will not be able to monitor them on the BC350C. You can visit www.uniden.com for information on their complete line of trunking scanners.

I would like police scanner frequencies for ventura co ca 93002


What type of scanner do you have? Is it strictly VHF, or does it have UHF also, does it cover the Marine band? I am not that familiar with Ventura County. FYI...Most of the police & sheriff Depts in the US Use Starnet which is Satalite based. That doesn't mean that you can't pick up on the transmissions. When the system get over worked it returns back into a trunking system and it is then that you can pick up the transmissions. The problem is that many times the transmissions are random and you may hear the first part of the call and then it may go to a different call altogether. At any rate there are other transmissions that you can hear such as airport towers, Flight Controllers, Misc Govt services, sometimes the fire and rescue (depending on your area) and sometimes you can even pick up the ISS. Here are a few links that might help.

What Type Of Scanner Do I Need?


Well, the above answer is somewhat correct, but could use a little clarification.

A radio that transmits in a P25 format is digital. Digital transmissions can be trunked, but don't have to be (as is the case here). In the case of scanners, every major brand scanner out there that works on digital transmissions will decode trunked of conventional digital and analog transmissions.

The current digital models run anywhere from $399 to $599. Radio Shack has 2 newer models out that will do digital...the PRO-106 (handheld) and the PRO-197 (base/mobile). These have been on sale recently for $399. Uniden also makes digital trunking scanners..the latest models being the 396 (portable) and the 996 (base/mobile). While the 996 has the capability to be used with a GPS in a mobile setting, this feature isn't really worth the added cost, especially when compared to the feature rich PRO-197.

There are older model digital scanners, such as the Radio Shack PRO-96, PRO-2096 and the Uniden 250D and 796D. While these receive digital transmissions, the newer scanners have upgraded digital decoding algorithms that provide better audio quality and intelligibility. Also, the older scanners may not be able to decode the 700 MHz public safety band, which is becoming increasingly more popular since the 800 MHz band is quickly filling up.

One word of caution...be sure that the agency you are trying to monitor is not using encrypted transmissions. If you don't know...look up the system on radioreference.com. Channels that are encrypted usually have an "E" designation under the "mode" column. These transmissions CANNOT be decoded by any of the scanners currently on the market, even if you do have the encryption key.

I hope this helps you with your buying choices. Good luck!
