• 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:

If the frequency shows up in the RR database it will be downloaded to the scanner


If the frequency is not listed in the RR database you can add it using the software.


Remember that many times Car to Car frequencies are not repeated so you would have only line of sight distance.

A repeater is a transmitter that listens in on one frequency and broadcasts what it hears on another. They are useful for taking, say, a signal from a small handheld radio, and sending it farther than it normally would be able to go.

Your scanner should have some way of adding or deleting frequencies. You should be able to scroll through a list of entered frequencies to know what's in your scanner's memory. For the car-to-car freqs, look in the database on this website. To get there, click on "Database" at the top of the page and then go to your state and then county to get a list of radio systems there.

yes but What i am trying to find out is how do you find the Freqs or TGID's if they are not stored in my scanner because i have looked all over on this site and others there is hardly nothing for Polk County FL

Broadly, decoding is taking a signal, which really just consists of a measuring of the intensity and variations in the radio waves picked up by the receiver, and turning it into something that humans can understand.

Here is the database page for Polk County, Florida. Most public agencies seem to be on a P25 system. Based on the Wiki page for the PSR-800, it should handle a standard P25 system with APCO-25 voice just fine.

I'm not sure what the memory architecture of the 800 is but I assume it's similar to the 500/600. Let's say you wanted to program in the central dispatch for the county sheriff. First you would create a TSYS (trunking system) object, set its type as a P25 system and add in the system frequencies. You might be able to enter the control frequencies only like for Motorola systems, but since there aren't any P25 systems I'm interested in in my area I don't have much experience with it. Give it a name like "Polk Co. Pub. Safety", or anything else you would like. Then create a TGRP (talkgroup) object, set its DEC number to 5007 or HEX 138F, and you're all set. You can set between DEC or HEX display, which both display the same number, but in different number systems.

If that is too confusing, since you're a premium subscriber, you can just use a program to download the entire Polk County System, delete the channels you aren't interested in, and send that to your scanner.
