    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:

Hi all,
I'm not sure how I did this but hope I can un-do it somehow....

This is for a BCD996xt, and I've tried to fix it using both FreeScan and ARC-XT Pro, to no avail.

I wish to monitor two talkgroups on one site of a major statewide system (Fairfield Police Department, Type-I TGs 2599 and 2601 on the NJICS system). I added the system, Added one site and added one group with the two TGs. I assigned that site to a system QuickKey that also contains 2 other trunked agencies and a bunch of conventional. When I engage SCAN on QuickKey 5, it scans normally but also does an ID SEARCH on the NJICS system for other Phase-1 systems.

How can I remove "ID SEARCH" and just scan the two needed talkgroups -- in addition to the other items ?

Thanks in advance.

First of all, if you're using two or more software programs, you'd want to make certain you have each configured identically for each system you have set up. If, for example, you had set the "ID Scan" to "Search" on FreeScan, but set it to "Scan" on Arc XT-Pro, and then uploaded to the 996 using FreeScan, your system would now be set to "Search" for id's, and not "Scan" for id's. When you manually re-set the ID Scan via the scanner, and then later upload from the software, your scanner will pick up any settings from the software and your manual configuration will be lost.
