• 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:

The only way I am aware is to lock out the talk groups you don't want to hear. You will still hear the dispatch on FD Dispatch of all agencies, but you can lock out all the other fire talk groups but Novato, if you wish.

novato fire

Thank you, You are correct however someone told me i can do like the stations due and only hear dispatch for novato. I told him i have been selling scanners for years and know them very well and he said i was wrong that someone on here told him how to do it once and he forgot so i thought i would put a posting and see where it goes.

The way they do it in the stations on "Night" mode is with a Motorola MOSCAD decoder box. It takes an analog signal on a MERA talkgroup specifically for that purpose and uses it to turn all the lights and the loudspeaker for 'FD Dispatch' on. MOSCAD is I'm sure proprietary so there's no way to decode this with any computer program that I know of, and DEFINITELY not straight from the scanner. Even my local firehouse listens to all the dispatches in the county over the loudspeaker during the daytime anyway, so it's not so bad...

Good Load for P96 scanner

I just got a RS P96, and I would like to load in all marin fire and some law. Is there a better template out there, or a good CSV file I could start with?

Thanks for any help.
