I noticed on a Facebook post that the last update was from this past summer. I apologize, I have gotten busy and everything seems to be running as smoothly as I can expect so I just haven’t done much updating.

In this update we will cover a few things I have seen happening and cover a few issues I am having, just to keep the transparency.


  • Physical Scanner is silent
    • I have been contacted by a few people about their physical scanner going silent on the Enid Police Department channel (155.520)

      I have noticed this issue also, however, that is maintained by the City of Enid directly and I have no connection to that. I only operate the Online Scanner and the radio does not affect me because I am decoding their digital signal directly.
  • Scanner App goes silent on the Enid Police & Enid Fire
    • Personally, I am baffled at this myself. The EPD and EFD have what is called a “Control Channel” which basically sends a constant signal and when someone keys their microphone and talks, it assigns them a voice channel. My scanner feed listens to this control channel 24/7 and then when it sees something I have told it to listen to, it will automatically tune to the voice channel and monitor that audio.

      However, lately, I have noticed it loses the control channel and goes silent. The Sheriff and OHP still work on the Right channel because they do not use a control.

      I have currently set the scanner computer to reboot at 4am and around 9pm to try and reset everything and keep this control channel running. SO, if you get dropped from the feed around these times, that’s why!


  • Please look through the updates page for best practices on setting up your Scanner app
  • Submit a help ticket on this page if you have problems or notice issues.
    • If you use the submit feedback on the APP, the issue goes to Broadcastify directly, they have to monitor and identify if the issue is on their end or my end. Then they have to contact me, I have to investigate and then correct the issue.
    • Submit issues directly to enidscanner.com and the notice comes directly to me and I can get it corrected much faster!

Hope everyone had a safe Halloween and a great up coming holiday season
