• 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:

    Road Trip Report: Macon to Augusta

    Howdy, Some of you may benefit from my recent road trip through Macon (Bibb County) and up to Augusta (Richmond County). This is a list of what I heard. Many of the recordings (via my TRX-2 and/or G5) were 1-2 seconds long and made it impossible to tell the user. I'll let the locals confirm...

    TRX-1: Hearing more talkgroups on a large system

    I just got a TRX-1 and have been playing around with it. One of the first things I noticed after loading up my local trunked systems is that it seemed deaf to showing talkgroup action on a system with many talkgroups. I'm talking about the EBRCS system in the SF Bay Area which has about 480...

    TRX-1: How to update new talkgroups?

    Just got a TRX-1 and loving it! The last scanner I purchased was a Pro 92 and now all my locals had slowly went digital so I took the plunge. I'm a bit confused how new talkgroups added to the website get updated in the ez-scan library that is loaded to the scanner. I ask this because I was...

    YRCS talkgroups of interest.

    TG 1013: I'm only hearing one side of this, and it may be a patch from another channel. 1100: In the past, I've heard both what sounded like worker's compensation fraud surveillance, as well as a contract road crew talking to the ADOT Phoenix TOC. 1108: Was used car-to-car, with very lax radio...

    AACo MD Miscellaneous TGs

    In the exploration of my new Uniden BCD536HP scanner, I have activated (turned ON) "ID Search" for the Anne Arundel 800 MHz System (sysid A43F).

    Cabarrus Channels

    I was messing around with one of the radios the firefighters use and noticed that their Cab Fire Zone also has a matching conventional zone. It has all the cab ops channels that are analog. Can anyone tell me what the analog ops frequencies are for Cabarrus county?
