Default Scanner not trunking

Hi, I just bought the Pro-2052. I programmed in these freqs for Lubbock County EDACS (Lubbock TX)

01 856.23750 02 856.73750 03 857.23750 04 857.73750 05 858.23750 06 858.73750 07 859.23750
08 859.73750 09 854.01250 10 856.53750 11 856.48750 12 856.98750 13 857.48750 14 857.98750c
15 858.48750 16 858.98750 17 859.48750 18 859.98750 19 854.41250 20 855.98750

I follow the manual to set it to trunk them, but when I hit SEARCH, it starts going through MHZ Search. Is there something wrong with the scanner?

All its doing is scanning through the 20 freqs I put in. I cant get it to trunk properly. Any ideas?

PS. I hear BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP after each transmission. That means its not trunking correctly right?

Sounds like it's not trunking at all - try following the steps labeled in the article below, from our wiki (anything in blue is a link)

Well I got it working with some software. One question though. If I delete IDs will the scanner skip over them? If not, how can I ignore some users. I dont want to hear city works and that stuff for instance.

You want to put it in SCAN, not SEARCH.

Yes. You will hear the beep unless you are SCANNING in the correct mode with all of the proper frequencies programmed in the correct order.

You have to program the TGs you do want and set the bank to ID SCAN mode (not ID SEARCH mode).
