• 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:

When monitoring a digital, trunked system, is there a way to select TRUNK SEARCH, like on the BCD996XT an other radios? Or is the choice to use Discovery Mode? Also, does the Discovery Mode behave exactly like the Trunk Search when monitoring trunked systems?

You can toggle a system between search and scan on the x36 scanners just like the 996xt.

The system must be in a Favorites List, and then from the radio, you just go into manage favorites list and select what you want. You can also toggle it in Sentinel.

You can only scan if you are using the full database and not using a favorites list.
