• 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:

HELLO I'M NEW SCANNER USER, RETIRED POLICE OFFICER SOO, HAD A RADIO ON MY HIP FOR A LONG TIME. I guess I miss the noise and chatter lol. I just got a TRX 1 and I'm in the Goldsboro NC area. and was trying to see how to pick up this area on the scanner. I could the local PD when I first got the scanner, but not sure if I did something. I can pick up surrounding areas just fine, lol just not my area. Any help is welcome. Thanks and I hope I posting right and in the right area. thanks again.

Welcome to RR, you'll find all the answers to your questions here. I'd suggest you post this in the NC section as you'll get the attention of the people who can help you a lot quicker that way. If you click on the little red triangle in the upper right (just above your join date) you can ask a Moderator to move it to that section if you want. Best of luck to you!

macskins99,

Yes, you'll be better off asking this in the North Carolina forum as DJ11DLN mentioned.

Meanwhile, looking at the frequency database here on Radio Reference, it looks like the Goldsboro Police Department (GPD) was in the process of moving from their VHF system to the Wayne County Project 25 Phase I system. Reference the old VHF system here and the new trunking system here. Which do you have programmed into your scanner?

Finally, Welcome to Radio Reference! Great to have another retiree from the police department around here. I fully understand what you mean about missing the radio chatter. That is why I invested in the Uniden BCD536HP scanner shortly after I retired. The silence can be maddening! LOL! :lol:

Cheers! Dave

Over 3 decades as a LEO and I sort of miss it. I was getting weaned off the chatter in the last few years of service because I worked in Crime Analysis, the Legal Office and Homeland Security.

But, you're right and after you've listened for years, you find that certain words and phrases or elevated voices get your attention while much of the traffic falls away.
