• 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:

I live near the border of Montgomery County PA and Bucks County PA. I was able to program the trunking frequencies for Montgomery County Police departments but when I try to do the same thing with the Bucks County trunking freqs. I get nothing.

Am I missing something for Bucks County?

I see that the Bucks County trunking freqs. are digital but I do have a digital scanner and receive other digital signals.
Does the order in which you enter the trunking freqs. matter?
I am using a Radio Shack Pro-106 scanner (object oriented based) and one of its features is a capital T display when a trunking system is being monitored while scanning, The T is displayed for the Montgomery County system but not for the Bucks County.

Not sure what is going on here.
Any advice?

You need to program Bucks as a UHF system using a base freq and offset. The database here will give you that info. Then refer to your scanner manual on how to program the UHF trunking system. Good luck!!

Boy, someone actually ready and willing to learn how to program a scanner instead of wanting to be spoon fed everything. This was refreshing to read.
