• 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:

    How do you program your TRX-1, TRX-2 scanners?

    Thinking of getting the trx - 1. I'm looking at the EZ scan software and I can't seem to find how you can eliminate certain simulcast when wanting to scan only a certain group within a scan list.

    Questions

    I have two questions about the TRX-1 and EZScan that I hope someone can answer; 1. What is the relationship (if any) between the display scroll/scan speed and the actual scan speed of the TRX-1? 2. If I perform a Channel Update, are the outmoded talkgroup names or frequencies changed to...

    Whistler CDAT - invisible talkgroups?

    While programming my TRX-1 with the latest official CDAT software, I ran across something weird with what appears to be invisible talkgroup programming. Example: I try to program in a talkgroup of 3107 into a trunked DMR system. The software happily accepts it, but does not appear in the...

    TRX-1, Wildcard Help & Logging Radio IDs

    What's the purpose of a Wildcard, and how do I use it effectively? The manual is kind of vague about it. In the EZ-Scan software there is a section under each trunked system labelled Radio IDs. What's the purpose for this and how do I log IDs into the system? Thanks for the help!

    TRX-1: Another TRX-1 programing question

    TRX-1 App Error Message

    While attempting to install the latest CPU update to my TRX-1, the app states it cannot find any CPU firmware or DSP firmware for that matter. Does that with two different USB cables connecting to the computer. Yet the scanner still functions properly. Is there a reset or workaround?

    Ottawa EDACS Activity

    I added the Ottawa EDACS system to my TRX-1 and I see no activity (24-25 June). Lots of activity on P25. Any ideas? The settings were downloaded using the EZ Scan software. If someone is using a TRX-1 to monitor Ottawa EDACS, could you please share your settings? .. Thanks

    TRX-1: Does TRX-1 have good search capabilities

    From reading the (poorly written) manual it seems their are several types of searching available. The question is do they have a "search AND store" facility or does it just stop on getting a hit and you have to do a store manually? I read that the 436 Uniden does have a search-store feature...
