• 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:

    Downloading coordinates in search results?

    Hello, I am trying to figure out how to download a search result that includes the coordinates of the sites of the system. Is that possible in any download report (CSV)?

    Programming control site frequency?

    WHen you program the control sites frequencies, do you program them in order that this website has them? Or by color? I watched a video and he said I should put the controll frequencies first red and blue. then put the other ones in. But can’t find anything to support that.

    Multi-Site scanning on a BC796D

    I don't live in an area where I can test this, but is it possible to load multiple trunk sites (not systems) into one bank on the 796D and have it trunk OK (assuming I'm doing Motorola Control Channel only)? I know there is a "trick" with the Radio Shack scanner that if you separate the trunk...
