• 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 had gotten out of the scanner hobby many years ago, but I still have a Pro-43 and a BC245XLT. My question is can the BC245XLT be programmed for Forsyth County, GA? They went to a trunked system several years ago. Thanks in advance.

MH,
If you are referring to this trunked system,
Forsyth County, Georgia (GA) Scanner Frequencies and Radio Frequency Reference
then the answer is no. That is a Project 25 (digital) system. All transmissions are in a digital format. Your 245XLT, unfortunately, is an analog only scanner.

To receive that system, you'd need a digital trunk tracker. Current models include: (handhelds) BCD396XT, PSR-500, and Pro-106.
Base/mobile units- BCD996XT, PSR-600, and Pro-197.

The GRE PSR-800 and Uniden's HP-1 would also work.

Older, discontinued, scanners, that would work include the BCD396T, BCD996T, also the Pro-96 & Pro-2096.
