• 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 looked in Notepad and TG 22926 had a Lapeer County radio ID (9443230) tied to it.
I assumed it was just a new Genesee TG since they're going dark today, but looks like Lapeer is slowly moving that way too.

Didn't pay much attention to it when I heard it come over the scanner yesterday, but it doesn't look good.

I’m hearing TG 13985 on the Ottawa county simulcast. I hear calls for a 904 to take a lockout and an AGP. Today I heard a status check for 9306. At first I thought this could be gvsu Grand Rapids security but now I’m not sure.

Trying to figure out how to listen to talk groups in other counties on my whistler 1040 scanner. Do i simply program the talk group that i want to listen to into the scanner and then program the closest tower's frequencies? Im not having any luck.

In Whistler scanners, if you program more than one site in a scanlist, it will stop and stay on the first site that falls in the threshold limits. My work around. I wanted 7 sites scanned. I downloaded MPSCS 7 times into 7 different scanlists. Locked out or deleted all other sites except for the one I wanted on each scanlist. I chose to lockout all talkgroups on each scanlist that I did not want to hear, so I could use the wildcard talkgroup to alert on new talkgroups. You can delete the unwanted talkgroups but using the wildcard will alert to all tralkgroups that are not programed into the scanlist. Good luck

On the WS1040, you can enter the control channels for all sites in your area, and then set the mode to use STAT. Then turn on the option to check all control channels. This will check all sites that are in range and programmed. As far as hearing other counties, it really depends on if a radio using one of those talkgroups is registered (affiliated) with one of those sites you have programmed. If there aren't any radios affiliated you won't hear any of them.
