• 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:

Raleigh - Wake County, NC USA Raleigh Fire and PD

I have a RS Pro-96 some time in the past two weeks I lost Raleigh Fire Grounds and all Raleigh PD I bought from RS a USB/data cable and loaded ARC 96 SW. I bought a RR 180 day account and proceeded to load the Arc 96 SW. when I loaded it on to my scanner it loaded well but only the frequencies other the 800Mhz worked. then I re-banded all banks re-saved that as a new re-band profile and loaded my scanner once again and partial success I notice I receive Cary NC transmitions, but NO other Wake County and Raleigh Transmissions in the 800Mhz. As a side note even though my Arc 96 SW shows Alpha Tags my scanner does not so I wonder if the TG Info did not transfer?

Bob,
I believe you are confused on how to program the scanner.
VIPER is not (yet) gone through rebanding so there is no need to
"reband" any Wake County VIPER freqs.
I recommend using Win96 instead of ARC96.
All you should need to do is enter the 4 Wake County Simulcast Control Channels ONLY:
--868.150Mhz
--868.5625Mhz
--868.5375Mhz
--868.7875Mhz
Set the 4 channels above to MOT (Motorola) and the system to OPEN Mode
and you will hear radio traffic.
To help you out I will give you a Wake County Win96 file to load into your scanner.
You will have to download Win96 to use it but once you do that then right click and save the file below:
http://qsl.net/k/ke4znr//Win96/MePro96December2011.p96
Then upload it into your scanner.
The layout is:
Bank 0 (zero)= Garner PD & NCSHP
Bank 1= Ral/Wake FD & EMS ALERT
Bank 2=Ral/Wake FD & EMS PS TAC & OPS TGs
Bank 3= Wake County Emergency TGs
Bank 4= KRDU Airport VIPER
Bank 5= Cary 800Mhz
Bank 6= VIPER Towns (LE East & etc)
Bank 7= Wake County Sheriff
Bank 8= New VIPER P25
Bank 9= Raleigh PD

Hi Sherard, I want to thank you for your advice! When I lost Raleigh fire ground and most (Not all) Raleigh PD I thought the Reband had started! I have downloaded Win96 but my PC thinks i had loaded it before so I will need purchase the program! I see you are from Raleigh as well. Would you object in my talking to you directly if I have further needs?

Thanks and Hi

Hi and Thanks Sharard,
I want to thank you for the advice. I felt Wake County went rebanded because I lost both Raleigh FD fire ground and Raleigh PD. I did download Win96 and i can not use it as it was in my PC from a year ago and i lost the ID/PW. I will purchase the registration it next weekend. I see you also live in Raleigh near Cameron Village. Would you object my discussing this with you directly if I have issues? When will Wake County make the switch?
