• 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:

I am trying to set up trunking on a RS PRO 2052. I have the Albemarle/Charlottesville, VA, frequencies, and the talkgroup IDs. However, I am only picking up the D mode items (the jail) and not the police (A mode).

Can someone help?

Thanks in advance.

Are you sure you don't have that backwards? D=Digital; A=Analog. You should only be picking up the analog transmissions, as the PRO-2052 isn't a digital scanner.

The jail is A(analog) and the police are D(digital). If you want the PD you'll need a new digital scanner. Here's the system:

Yeah, too bad, The jail is about the most boring thing I have ever listened to except the local Yellow Cab Co. which, darn it all, has gone to voice inversion. CURSES!

But Zeus, there's still plenty for you to listen to around here. Railroads and air band for example. Just not the city/county public safety or Yellow Cab.
