    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:

can anyone tell me if theres a way to eliminate the state abbreviation while scanning conventional frequencies? I only have 2 bands used on this old scanner, with one bank being dedicated to chattanooga trunked system, it will scan that bank showing each talk group, then go to next bank where I have all my other frequencies loaded, however, it says GA, cant get rid of it, can only replace it with another state abbreviation, I know this doesnt effect what I have programmed on the bank......but........Im sick of seeing this!!
can anyone help with this?

You have to turn off that service search for the pre-programmed state search. It is tricky, I am thinking function + state or something like that. I just sold my 2051, so I can't play with it. I couldn't get the POL bank to come off either until I played around.

I actually programmed it from the computer, you would have thought that in itself would have cancelled that service, its no wonder that RS discontinued this scanner

Repeat pushing the func then the pvt buttons till you only have pvt showing on the display ONLY, this should get you to your banks you programed.
