• 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 want to enter the PA State police freq into my RS PRO-97. Here is the problem the 154.755 freq is listed twice with the same 186.2PL. The only thing different is the "input" freq. So - How do I enter them without duplicate channels ?
Also how do I enter the CSQ toned channels - I don't see CSQ as a selection - only the 3 trunks , FM, AM ?

CSQ stands for Carrier Squelch, in lamens terms, there are no tones, there is nothing preventing a signal from opening the scanner's Squelch and hearing audio. So do nothing for anything listed as CSQ, And any tone you do enter will block any transmission by that agency who uses CSQ.

As others said only enter 154.755 mhz ONCE into your scanner, and if you wish, enter the PL 186.2 hz so it'll block everything else on that freq except that agency. And completely ignore the INPUT. That's only the transmit freq for the agency into their repeater. They transmit on the input, and it goes to their repeater which automatically rebroadcasts on 154.755 which is what everyone uses to listen to.

Entering the input freq. is sometimes useful; as you might want to know how close
a car is to your location? Food for thought??
