• 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 am using Freescan updated one and using 396xt I am not sure what all these general options are under trunking systems

Under General Options

Use Motorola Status Bit (recommended off)?
Use Motorola End Code? (I guess the system ID)
Use Digital Motorola End Code?

I Checked the Status Bit nothing shows up (I went unchecked it nothing happens)
I Checked the Use End Code nothing shows up
I Checked the Digital Motorola End Code nothing shows up

I had the psr500 for trunking I was able to see what LCN numbers are but the 396xt doesn't show nothing

You're mixing apples and oranges here, and coming up with grapefruits. None of the things you mention have to do with tracking LCNs -- these are only used by EDACS and LTR systems, yet all of those options you mention are for Motorola systems.

Let's start with what system you are tracking - go to the blue toolbar under the site title left and float your mouse over Database Use the pulldowns to get to your system - let's see what you are trying to work with. I'm unsure whether the 396XT can show LCNs per se, although it seems you could use a channel number tag to fill that purpose - and Freescan can handle that.

best regards..Mike

I am scanning Jacksonville FL F/R 800 system and it shows system id (on the psr500 showed the System Connect tone ex.. 105.88) I do follow FL Power & Light Edacs (when I had the psr500 I showed the CC01 CC02 etc.. that is how I got that system LCN order). In my town we don't have any 800 systems just vhf/uhf/ltr
