    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:

So I'm currently in Myrtle Beach and having trouble figuring out the system. Last year when I was down I don't remember this much trouble. I did do a search and found where Horry County is now dispatching Myrtle Beach and N. Myrtle Beach. Anyway I am picking up the control channel but the ID's coming up are type I and do not coincide with what the database has. Right now I have figured out the following:

000-14 - Fire/Rescue Dispatch for Horry County
000-13 - Possible Fire Tac Channel

Other I have found I believe are Multiple PD agencies.

Thanks in advance for the help! I did hear a unit ask another unit if his radio had been reprogrammed by the way.

What type of scanner are you using? One of us might have a file we can post.

BTW NMB operates on the County system, but i assume they still dispatch themselves (like Loris, Conway, etc) Myrtle Beach is on thei own system.

I'm using a Pro-95, but I have it in Open mode and all that is showing being active are the type I ID's I listed, I do have all the control channels in, I think I might try to reprogram the bank.

Be sure you're programming it as a type II system. I listened to them within a week of the 1st trunktracker hitting the radio shack stores, so you should have no problem with it.

Edit. Here's a file to try. I converted an old win93 file to a win95. I'll try to clean it up a little better tomorrow. Bank 1 is MB, and 2 & 3 are the county TRS.

This is asumming you are using win95 to program your scanner.

OK, I Downloaded win95 so I could work on a simple setup. I put only the control channels in each of the 10 banks, so you won't have to do that if you want to add anything.

There is SOME Horry County stuff in bank 0, and a few NMB TGs in bank 1. They are both set as closed, and the other banks are open. I had to type it in by hand as the 16 digit display of the pro97 makes it hard to copy & paste to win95.

Let us know if we can help you with anything else.

Ok thanks for the file! I was unable to program while I was down because I didn't have my cable or computer there but I will be back at the beach in a couple weeks again to test it out.
