• 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 would like to monitor ATCS on the railroad but I need to install/find the discriminator tap on my BC92XLT. I found a site that gives directions on how to do it for a PRO-97 (http://www.naturalgfx.com/pro97_discriminator.htm) but that obviously isn't the same inside as the BC92XLT. On the site, it said to locate TP4, which is the hard part for me. Where is it?? I understand how to do the rest of the steps but I can't find TP4.

I'm pretty new to ATCS but I know the basic idea behind it. ATCS or Advanced Train Control System is used by train dispatchers to track the trains and make it easier for them to tell the engineers of a train what to do (because they can see where it is and where it needs to go in their territory), and to control track switches along the track. You can monitor ATCS with ATCS Monitor available from www.atcsmon.com (there is also much more detailed info on ATCS from the site above. NOTE: You have to become a member of the ATCS yahoo group in-order to download the program, the link is on the page).

Hope that cleared it up a bit. I would definately recommend going to the site if you want to learn more.
