If a channel is not received over Rangecast, it is possible that the scanner programming must be adjusted, or the signal quality may be poor at the location of your current radios. It is also possible that the channel is encrypted, or cannot be received with the model of radio receiver in service.


1) Ask your company Rangecast admin to check the programming feature of the admin page. The scanner programming may need to be adjusted
