• 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:

Noticed today a new talkgroup id for Arlington 57392 - sounded possibly like animal control. Has anyone else picked up this talkgroup?

Other unidentified groups have been:
53360
53527
54864
55984
56503
56576

Haven't been able to figure out the last six groups but 57392 sounded like Animal Control.
Been using Universal Trunker with a tapped Pro 2035 and enjoy it greatly. I have been hand keying in the user id's for all the engines/quints/dispatchers/ems as I hear them and confirm their user ids to the talkgroups. Anyone already done this to see who is keying up on screen?

Just by looking at where these fit in with the other known talkgroups I would guess:
53360 UTA
53527 FD dispatch (53520+7 status bit?)
55984 AISD or Pantego
56503 FD station alert (56496+7 status bit?)

I don't know about the others.
Last year I heard activity on 55760 and 56752 but was never able to ID them.

The database has 3 talkgroups for Mansfield ISD. I think that is wrong because they were always mentioning Arlington schools.

How do i enter talk groups on my BC60XLT-1 30 Channel 10 Band Scanner
Jerry, to enter talkgroups, you need a trunk-tracking scanner. The BC60XLT is not a trunk-tracker.
