    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:

Sorry that title is about the best I could think of.

What I want to do is be able to export the favorite list key, system list keys, and department key numbers to something that I can sort and print out on a quick reference card(s). Ideally, it would be favorite list, with systems and their departments under the FL (or as a single table row).

For example, I live in Virginia and have the STARS system in a FL. The Virginia State Police have seven divisions, so under the STARS FL key, I have VSP as a system and the seven divisions as departments.

So what I'd like to be able to export is a file that contains the three key sequence (e.g., "FL.SQK.DQK VSP Div #") along with the key names. This may be a bit long so ability to edit the names would be nice.

I have several FL's set up like this (my local county shares its system with four other agencies I don't need to monitor all the time) and trying to keep track of the numbers gets confusing after a bit. My table would look something like this (though I am open to other suggestions).
0.0.1 local pd
0.0.2 local fd
0.0.3 shared sys1 pd
0.0.4 shared sys1 fd
0.0.5 shared sys2 pd
etc.

Many thanks for any ideas.

I wrote a simple program to parse the FL files a while back. It may or may not be exactly/complete what you want. I haven't used it for some time. If you want a copy, PM me (include an email address) and I'll look for it
