• 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:

Does anyone know has Amherst/Bedford/Lynchburg changed anything about their trunked radio system that would make it so that a Radioshack Pro-2096 could not monitor it? I programmed a scanner for gentlemen that takes his scanners down to the Amherst and Bedford Area and he his telling me that he didn't hear anything. I programmed it in as three separate EDACS Banks (one for bedford, one for amherst and one for lynchburg) making sure I used LCN channel numbering and talkgroup numbering. Am I doing something wrong?

A common mistake on the PRO-96/2096 is to make the LCN #'s match exactly. (Ch-201 is LCN#1, 202 is LCN#2, etc.) In reality, Ch.200 should be LCN#1, 201 should be LCN#2, etc. I made this mistake the first time i tried to program the system.

This I never knew. I had a PRO-2055 and it did not have that problem. LCN #1 would've been 201 in that scanner, unlike the 2096.
