• 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:

My dad got this scanner for Christmas and is very excited. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to program in the local numbers that he has given me. Can anyone PLEASE walk me through from start to finish? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You have used the terms "codes" and "numbers"-I'm assuming that what you're wanting to do is program local frequencies in the private memory bank? If you haven't done so already, start with page 51 of the owner's manual. If you didn't receive a manual I've provided the link. Programming one of these scanners can be a bit tedious on the first attempt but is actually fairly straightforward (And easily learned).

Your dad might not be so excited when he finds out he can only listen to Morgantown. The county has gone to the WVIRP, P-25 digital statewide system.
You may want to ask in the WV state forum, further down the forums page, for more info on using the BC355N in your area.

I want to thank you for providing so much help to us newbie's here on these forums.

Every time I read one of your posts, you give great advice and/or help to somebody that may not have a clue about what is going on or that they may have a clue but might have overlooked something while trying to understand and program their scanner.

Thank You for providing such great wisdom.
I, and I'm sure many others here will agree with me, appreciate every bit of expertise you provide to us.

As Larry has already mentioned your dad will be limited to what he'll be able to monitor due to Monongalia Co being 100% on the WV SIRN Digital Trunked System. I think Mon Co fire & ems traffic may still be simulcasted on VHF so he'll be able to get those. I don't think, however, that the Morgantown agencies are simulcasting:(

73s hope this helps
