Is there anyway someone could send me a configuration file with a private id setup so I could load up and look at to see what the problem is or give me some explicit instructions.
In WIN500, under the EXTENDED SETTINGS tab, make sure "Show Radio IDs for Group Calls" is selected (check in the box). This will activate this feature when the scanner stops on an active talkgroup.
By default, it will show Radio ID:.....xxxxx where xxxxx is the RID of the radio making the call. Sometimes it will change during the conversation to the other Radio, sometimes it will not.
Once you figure out a specific RID (or check the wiki under Hoosier SAFE-T), program it as a PRIVATE talkgroup under the appropriate system using the RID as the talkgroup number. If you program a PRIVATE talkgroup as a WILDCARD, it will allow reception of Private Calls - but this feature is not used often on SAFE-T.
If you want, PM me with your email address and I can send an example WIN500 file...
