• 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 reprogrammed my pro-95 with all the trunking freq's and talkgroups, but it won't pickup anything unless in manual and on a freq. I changed it from closed to open mode and back again and it won't stop on a talk group. it will pickup only in manual.any ideas

Sounds like the bank is not set to trunktrack or is missing the control channel or its alternative control channel.

I agree. The Norman site is rebanded. You need a scanner that can be rebanded. The Pro-95 is too old.
While this is true, there is only one pair (of 13) that was rebanded to a "borrowed" channel number (meaning an old radio will never tune to that channel). Better, it's one that, through logging traffic via Unitrunker, I have found is little used.

So, if you subtract the 4 potential control channels (two of which do, occasionally, get assigned voice traffic when the system is busy but only occasionally) from 13 you get 9. Only one of those channels is unscannable because of the rebanding. If you do the math, that's only an 11% chance that you'll miss part of a call.

But that assumes that the channels are used equally and they are not.

My BC780XLT works just fine. I may well miss stuff, but I've never noticed.

I have a Pro-95 and I don't think I miss much traffic Norman seems to bunch everyone up on 4 or 5 repeaters out of all they have.most of the time.

Trunk tracking on a PRO-95

You need to have each (control channel) frequency set to the correct system type (MOT) and you must also set the BANK to that mode as well.
