• 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:

It sounds like you have all banks turned off. Your scanner has 10 banks of 50 channels each. They are numbered 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 and 0. Turn the scanner and, after the welcome screen, it should start scanning. It will probably say "all lock out" or "nothing to scan". I have the same scanner, but forget what it says. Now, press the 1 button and you should see bank 1 come on at the bottom of the display. do the same until all 10 banks (numbers 1 through 0) are showing on the bottom of the display. Now, that your banks are all unlocked, you can program it. To do that, consult your manual.

unless...

unless someone locked out all of the channels out
you would then have to program in a channel
so if that 1 through 0 did not work then this is the problem
good luck
