    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.

    Can a SmartZone radio be used in non-trunking mode?

    Is it possible to disable the use of Trunking on a Motorola that has SmartZone enabled? Say you just wanted to use it in standard repeater or simplex operation. Just wondering if SmartZone is all or nothing. Thanks.
