    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.

quick question about this i am getting the sds 200 in a few days and this imy first uniden scanner since 15 years ago . i watched some videos and created a few favorites list which a buddy tested and says work good .. my question is this when i load this scanner over sentinel i can load the full data base plus my favorites right ? then if i want to scan for stuff use the full data base and select railroads or aircraft and then scan . but after that in the scanner menu can i turn off all favorites lists and use my lists? and when i am useing my lists does it matter if law or fire is enabled or does useing your own favorites bypass that?

The full database is always sent to the scanner (if it is not current). You can control whether it is scanned or not.

The service types you want to hear need to be enabled on both the full database and favorites list.

mule1075 is correct, Those service types/selections must be checked, and apply to both the FullDB and your FL's.
there are ways to sneak around the rules, like setting all the TG's in your fl's you are sure you want to always receive to one type, or one of the customs (1-8) and make sure that one is always enabled.. Hope that makes sense. :)

That's a correct statement, keep them all on. you'll still only hear that which you have your active FL set up with. (y)
