• 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:

I am totally new to a scanner. I just purchased a Radio Shack PRO106. I programmed it with information from the Radio Reference site. I can get transmissions from some of the other agencies but not for BRPD. Since I can get the SO I assume I programmed correctly. I am listening to BRPD over the live feed on my PC but with everything I've tried I can not get the BRPD on the scanner. I read that some agencies block their signal, but I do not understand why I can get the other agencies on that trunked system but not the BRPD. Any help would be appreciated.

Double check that your trunking table is set to 800 rebanded. Also, it doesn't look like the CC's are marked for that system, so either enter them all (Limit 32) or try to find out what the CC's are, and make sure they are entered, at least the main Control Channel.

They are on 700 mhz

If they were encrypted you wouldn't be hearing them on the live feed or anywhere else. They were talking about 1 min. ago on mine

I would wonder if BRPD is being carried on all the sites in Baton Rouge or only on the simulcast sites. You said you programmed the system based on what the DB has in it but you didn't say how you programmed it.

Not being in BR, I can only offer some hints, but I am pretty sure I heard BRPD when I traveled through BR. Like you, I know I heard the EBRSO, but I also heard BR Fire/EMS so I'm guessing it is a programming issue.

Thanks everyone. I've got it working now. Although they are listed under Department of Safety trunked system I had to program to the Louisiana Wireless Information Network simulcast channels.

My scanner is in my truck right now so I'm not looking at it but I live just inside EBR in Pride I can see the Baywood tower from here and I haven't really noticed what tower I hear them on.
Also the Baywood tower is not in Baywood it's in Pride. I guess those smart radio people can't read a map.

In the next couple day's I'll try and see what towers I hear them on. :)
