• 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:

Is there anyway to set up multiple favorites lists and set them up to scan a county with a mix of conventional and trunked. For example I want favorites list 1 to scan County A, then favorites list 2 to scan County B and so on?

assign quick key numbers to each favorite list. Turn on those favorite lists in "select lists to monitor". Then, while the scanner is doing it's thing, push the number followed by "yes" to toggle the list on or off.

You can set up a favorites list to do anything that you can think of. If you can dream it up, you can create it in a favorites list.

And you don't need to use quick keys to do it. I assign quick keys to stuff in favorites lists, and activate them all, only so I can use the menu to toggle them on and off. If you want to set up a favorites list and want to monitor everything in that list, however you have dreamt it up, then quick keys are not needed.

As noted above, Quick Keys (Favorites List, System and Departments) are not mandatory. However they can be pretty helpful to turn certain "things" on/orr quickly.

To help me remember how I have assigned quick keys, I include the number in the name of the FL/System/Department.

For example a department called "Fire" with a department QK of 1 in the "MetroSafe" system with a system QK of 0 in the "Jefferson County" Favorites List (FL QK of 2) ends up being:

F2 Jefferson County
S0 MetroSafe
D1 Fire
