• 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 if I can direct type a TGID into the HP-1 for monitoring? Occasionally on my 396XT I need to goto a specific TGID and monitor a channel temporarily. I know the HP-1 has an on screen keypad to enter frequencies but wasn't sure about TGIDs.

I'd appreciate any info on the matter.

Thanks

No it does not have that feature (and I wish it did). However you can use the wildcard to catch the ones not in the database.

You could make a favorites list with your greatest TGID hits, to speed up the process.

Another thing to add to my wish list in a future firmware update. Although I don't use it that often, there are about five TG I know off hand and if I'm called saying "xxxxx has a incident going on" I know I can just key in the TGID on my 996/396XT and good to go.

In the meantime I do have a favorites list with those specific surrounding agencies.

Thanks. I appreciate the info. I'll probably add the HP-1 to my collection and hope Uniden adds this feature in the near future.
