• 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:

HP 2 Extreme Update

No. ID search is already in the HP2 without the extreme update.

You must set it between search and scan in the Sentinel software and it can only be used in a favorites list (not the full database).

If you do get the extreme update, you can toggle search/scan for trunked systems on the radio itself. I think you need to do it in Sentinel without the extreme update.

I don't understand-- what do you mean "between search and scan"?
ID Scan will only receive the talkgroups that you have programmed, providing that the talkgroup is not avoided (locked out) and it is not in a system or department that is avoided.

ID Search, on the other hand, will receive any active talkgroup on the system, providing (once again) that the talkgroup is not avoided (locked out) and it is not in a system or department that is avoided.

If it is a talkgroup that you have programmed, you would see whatever text tag you have associated with it. If it is active, but not programmed (and also, again, not avoided in the ways mentioned) you would only see the TGID. Then, if it appears to be used for something that you want to listen to, you can add it to the system, and once you determine agency & usage, add the appropriate text tag.
