• 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 just purchased a PRO-2096 and I THINK I have it programmed properly for the MIRS system, but, I am not hearing any audio. I'm new to trying to monitor digital trunked systems, but, I think I understand things - I'm just not sure that I understand things.

How often should I hear transmissions during the day? I've been listening for like 15 minutes and haven't heard a one.

But, sometimes, I see the scanner will stop scanning, show some information on the display (33104 or 33808 see common), but there is no audio coming out of the speaker.

I can hear other transmissions on non-MIRS frequencies (like county fire band 46.42, etc), but, no audio on the MIRS channels.

I am in Kinnelon, so, maybe that's the problem? I have the antenna in the attic and I can receive pretty well, I think.

I should also specify that if I stop on the control channel by hitting MAN, I hear the appropriate data sound and the display shows 8911which corresponds to what I see in the database, so, I am also thinking that it is NOT a signal strength issue.

Yes, I did.

Which brings up another question.

Since there are two listings in the RR database for the Base, Spacing and Offset, and I think I need to enter both, I think those two items have to be entered into two banks?

As such, do I need to enter all of the control channels in both banks also?

You need to set up both sets of base, offset, step in a single bank. Also only enter the freqs from zone 2 (north).

I'm not familiar with the 2096 so cannot help you any further.
