• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    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. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

    500/600 mounting bracket and knobs

    Maybe you have a PSR500/600 and have it vehicle mounted using the DIN sleeve option, leaving you with a mobile mounting bracket and knobs that you don't need. I am looking to purchase the 600 bracket and knobs. Can't find a vendor in the net. Thanks. Terry

    Mountain Home AFB, ID

    I programmed my GRECOM PSR500 for all trunked frequencies in the area. I noticed that MHAFB Security Forces transmissions are unintelligible. I am able to hear others on the networks such as POL, aircraft maintenance, etc. but these particular transmissions are unintelligible. My question is...

    PSR500 decoding P25 issue?

    I'm not sure if it's an issue with the scanner or the system that it's not completed but here's the situation. When the console transmits on a Talkgroup the scanner does not decode the transmission unless there is a radio (mobile/portable) selected on that channel somewhere on the system. Ex...

    2013 Chevrolet Malibu Install

    I recently bought a 2013 Malibu and after a few weeks of not having any radios or scanners in my car and it driving me nuts, I took the plunge. I don't have pictures of the trunk lid liner removal but it was simply removing the plastic rivets and the plastic handle used to close the trunk...

    Helpful Hints?

    Hello, My name is Scott, I'm from the Halifax area and after a lot of reading a research, decided to go with the GRE PSR500. I ordered it about 5 minutes ago complete with rechargeable batteries, wall charger and car charger :D. I have been sifting through the other forums, but I am not sure...

    Pirate Radios?

    I run Trunk88 24/7 and have been since last July. I periodically check my logged radios to delete radios without Talkgroups. (I am assuming that these are bad reads) But I have noticed that there are two radios that always appear and are not attached to any talkgroups, right after I delete...

    Trunk88 Mode Question?

    I have been running Trunk88 for over a year now, I love all of the amazing updates and can not say enough about the program. My question is, on the top of the screen it says mode: data monitoring. Are there other modes? Thanks in advance.

    Multi EDACS sites on PSR500

    I'm trying to load McPherson Co. Kansas EDACS system in Win500. This system has 3 sites, they have 5, 5, 4, frequencies in each site respectively. Since these need to be located in LCN, do I have to create 3 TSYS entries so the Freqs. are in the right placement? These 3 sites are listed as...

    Trunk software idea

    I do not know if I am alone in my way of thinking but I would like a piece of software to act like unitrunker but show all the info like trunk88. I love both programs but would like to have it all in one package. I know both programs are free and I should not look a gift horse in the mouth...

    PRO-106 and one frequency / multi-CTCSS tones

    I have a PRO-106 and am using Win500 V01.82. A frequency using a CTCSS tone signals that there is another user or potential user of that frequency. Whenever SEARCH discovers a TONE and I SAVE the frequency/tone pair, there is a nagging thought about what future pairs will be missed. As an...

    Traveling with my PSR 500

    I normally prefer to travel by train or sometimes bus but while checking out flights I found a flight from Tampa to San Francisco for only $89.00 and could not pass it up. When I travel I normally take my scanner along for the trip. I have had no problems with taking it on board the trains and...
