• 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:

Someone refresh my memory. I built a favorites with multiple systems. Each department in the system has GPS location and radius. I also added a trunking system. I added the coordinates to each of the tower sites and added a radius to them .

The question I have is the Departments/Talkgroups on the trunk system. Can I leave the Lat/Long at 0.00'00'00 and the scanner will scan these Talkgroups or will it skip them since I have no info about there location.

When you download the favorites list with the trunked system to the radio, set LOCATION block unchecked and it will scan when & where ever you enable it.
