• 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:

Ok, I am a newbie at this. I used Humble to learn how to trunk program. Here are the entries:
014 E Humble 866.22500a 867.21250 867.42500 867.62500 867.73750 868.15000 868.20000 868.40000

I chose ED (EDACS Wide Band:9600 Band) "Not sure if this is the right band"
Put in all the channels, then pressed SRCH button, but it defaults to TRUNK HWY PVT scanning. Cant get it to start scanning the channels I just programmed into bank 1. What am I doing wrong? Help?? Trying to learn. :)

Um, I am guessing you are trying to listen to the TxWARN Motorola system. That is not an EDACS system. It is a Moto 800 system. Change your programming.
