Try it now; it appears to be fixed. This looks like an oversight on my part, back to the days where I ran the website.
I think you should fire the new guy... :D

NAC codes in the wiki

Just a heads up, that all NAC codes listed in our wiki are in Hexidecimal (hex) mode, not decimal.
If you are submitting information for the DB, make sure you are also submitting in Hex.

Re: Worth moving antenna to attic?

If your relegated to an indoor antenna, then the answer is yes. But keep it about 2-3 away from the roof shingles. I have an attic antenna at my parents house out in the Berkshires and have fantastic reception with it.

Re: Welcome to Scanning 101

The two biggest things if you're not familiar with it right out of the box to get to know very well with operating the scanner. 1) Understanding scan lists and turning them on and off 2) Understanding "service types" and turning those on and off.

Re: Welcome to Scanning 101

Welcome to Scan New England. Yes, unfortunately your Bearcat 350A will not pick up the new WestComm digital trunk. You will need a new scanner for it. You will have to get a new scanner. To make your life easier, if you don't want to go through programming a new scanner, I will suggest either a Home...

How to ID/Show TGIDs on a DMR conventional channel on the x36 series

Yes, it is very possible to show a TGID on a programmed conventional channel on the x36 series scanner. No, you can't only monitor the single TG conventionally, you still need to program in as a SFT. What you need to do is default the channel name field. Go to Menu, Manage Favorites, Select your fav...
