• 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:

You also need to program in the talkgroup id's - Here is a link that will give you a list of the most commonly used talkgroups in the Denver Public Safety system.

Start under the "System Talkgroups" bar.

If you are using ARC246 to program your 246T, I can send you a Denver file. Click on my "email" link below in my signature and I can assist you further.
