• 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:

Hello,

I've owned my 898T for about two weeks now and I'm starting to get familiar with it. I had a friend program it yesterday with some frequencies for trunking as well as talk groups.

Today I pressed some buttons (forget which ones) and now I can't access any talk groups, I can only see frequencies.

I can see that the talk groups are still programmed into the scanner, I just can access them.

Thanks

Did you lock them out? Is there any key icon anywhere or does it say lockout?

Try pressing the TRUNK button followed by the A button and then the SCAN buttom.

I tried this but wasn't able to see the talk groups in bank A. Somehow I saw the groups in B, but I'm still not able to find the ones in A

should i do a software reset and try to start from scratch?

smitty9999, while the scanner is scanning, hit the DATA button. This action will allow you to see either the actual banks during scan or the trunk talk groups within the trunking banks.
