    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation.

    MTS2000 MDC problem

    I recently got an MTS2000 model 1 radio. I programmed some frequencies for MDC and it mutes it just fine but it sometimes doesn't display ID's on the screen. I thought it could just be a repeater problem etc but when I put it side by side with my xts5000, I noticed the xts would display ID's all...

    I am in the market for my first professional Motorola radio and I am heavily considering an XTS5000 Model I with the MPN:H18KEC9PW5AN. Does this radio support MDC1200 Signalling? How arduous is it to program this radio? Any other information can be provided upon request. Thanks!

    Can someone guide me along with setting up a MDC Encode and Decode on the ICOM Ic-F70DT? (radio is MDC Compliant) It is just not as easy as the Motorola CPS :-/

    Can I set names for MDC1200 IDs on the CDM1550-LS+?

    I know many MDC radios can do this but I'm not sure how. I have Professional Radio CPS (I think an older version) and I see an option to set the ID, but I dont see anywhere where i could be like "ID 1234 displays as Test Radio" or "ID 0217 displays as Vehicle 2-17".

    Can I get MDC1200 installed on my Baofengs somehow?

    I have 35 Baofeng BF-888s Radios I wish to have an MDC1200 preamble on. I found one guy who said he can install a chip that he can program for me, but he was very shady, I don't trust him lol. Basically what I want is it to give off an ID and have that second of tone that keeps you from...

    Need Some Kenwood MDC1200 OpCodes

    XTS 2500 MDC

    I have an XTS2500 Model 3 with FPP. When I have the radio scanning, it doesn't mute MDC, but when it is not scanning, it mutes perfectly. I have gone through the CPS and have not found anything in the scan configuration. I have DOS enabled. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    There has been a sudden complaint of the post MDC chirp in my area of my county. Three departments in my immediate area use the system with proper and matching IDs and has been very beneficial in the field and in trainings together for years. The complainer does not use the system so I think...

    Vmde-200 decode issues, help

    I have an vmde-200 installed in my vx-929, the radio decodes mdc1200 but doesn't decode DOS mdc1200? Is there anything I can do to make it work. Plus when it decodes mdc it makes a chirp instead of the squawk how can I fix this as well?

    Midian ANI-F on Motorola P100

    I recently bought a pair of Motorola P100 radios on eBay, and found that they didn't have MDC-1200 like I would have liked. So I did research and came across the Midian ANI-F multi-format encoder chip. For $80 it's a good deal considering it encodes all ANIs available. Before I purchase it, does...
