• 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 first thing you have to do is figure out which tower you can hear a control channel on. I havent been out to N.S. since 1982, when it was not cool to where a "Diary of a Madman " shirt with a burning cross on it.

I see four towers for your county, if you can create a Motorola 800 system go ahead and do so.
Then put in the control channels that you can hear.
Then you have to figure out which talkgroups are for your area. Ignore ones that have an E. Unless they have a habit of not using their encryption capabilities you will not be able to hear anything on these.

I see that there is a talkgroup for the RCMP Victoria.

The talkgroup # you need to enter in is 7600, its the second from the top in the DEC list:

Aliant Trunked Mobile Radio System (TMRS) Trunking System, Province-Wide, Multi-State - Scanner Frequencies

Hope this helps!

Check the delay setting on you frequencies. The 250 is the handheld version of the 785, I recall having to turn off the delay on the trunk frequenices. Doing that seem to speed up the scanning process.
How do you have your control channels programmed. Separate banks or in the one bank?
