• 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:

Can anyone explain or point me to a web page that explains how to program freqs. Im not to clear on the input freq. When I program my scanner what order should I put the freqs in. Or does it matter ? I see where they have the main freq and then a input freq. Does the input go before the main freq or visa versa ?

It depends on what scanner you have.

In general, you won't program in the "input" frequencies as those are used for repeater operation.

so the repeater frequencies should all be in a seprate bank ?
Probably 99 percent of everything You have ever listened to on a scanner WAS coming from repeaters. Don't confuse yourself with the term 'repeater', just enter the output frequency or 'main frequency' as you called it.
Just enter the freqs in the banks like you always have in the past, as far as an order in which you put them in your scanner, that is up to you. A lot of people enter the frequencies from lowest to highest or vice versa.
