• 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 have a RS Pro-163 that I have programmed with a Motorola Type II Hybrid system. 4 control channels and 169 talk groups. I had originally programmed it in the conventional manner with the control channels and voice channels. I was not aware until reading the Wiki on CCO that it would scan in that manner. What are the advantages and disadvantages, if any, in CCO? I am listening, at the moment, with it programmed that way. Any input is appreciated.

The only advantage is you only need to input the 4 CC freqs. instead of all 24 as we have where I am.

I don't see any disadvantage to selecting CC only. The up side is that if you don't know all the frequencies used by a system, or if they add frequencies to increase capacity, you won't miss calls.

Thanks for the replies. It seems to boil down to a matter of convenience. I can see where it would be in a large system. I think I will stick with it.
