• 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:

Using the ID Search Feature, I have come across a couple of TGID's that are not identified in any of the radio reference databases listed for the trunked radio systems located in my county or the statewide system that I have programmed in my scanner.

My question is:

When I come across the unidentified TGID, how can I find out specifically which trunked radio system did the unidentified TGID come from to where I could contribute the TGID for inclusion into the correct radio reference database?

TGID's that show up in IDsearch are still associated with only one Trunk system...one of those you programmed. They will show the Alpha name of the system and site(if you gave it one), and the frequency on which the TGID's is seen.

When you find them and identify their use, go to the trunk system in the RR Database, and hit the submit button.
