• 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:

Hello all, this is my first post and I hope this doesn't sound like an ignorant question but here goes. I have a RS Pro 197. On the shared freq it tells which agency is using it while they are using it. If I hit the LO button while an agency is using it will it lock out just that agency or will the whole freq then be blocked. I am a first grader to the game of scanning and any help will be appreciated. Thanks

If by "shared" you mean a trunking system, pressing LO will stop the specific talkgroup from being heard. HTH.

Glad to help. To permanently remove the talk group is a matter of reprogramming the radio. Pressing LO (if I remember correctly) only temporarily removes the TG, until the next time you power the radio off and on. The RS manual or the online oft-mentioned "made easy" manual have the details.

Mostly correct. Pressing L/OUT does only temporarily remove the TG, lasting until the radio is powered off and back on. If you want to permanently lock out an object, you must press the FUNC key followed by the L/OUT key. This will cause the lockout to remain even after the radio is powered off and back on.
