• 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:

Newbie just trying to listen to ANYTHING!

I posted earlier this week in the Radio Shack forum, and had some great answers. I am just hoping that someone here locally can help me out. I have a PRO-2053 and can't seem to hear much of anything. I've never programmed my scanner myself, (I've always just paid the guys at Radio Shack.) but am willing to learn. I'm not asking for much, maybe just to hear some local police/fire departments. I know this is a lot to ask, and I don't blame any of you for just ignoring this post and moving on to the next! I'm even willing to pay someone to help program my scanner.....any ideas?

There are alot of non-trunk frqs in use in the SL valley. Here are a few you can program into your radio to get you started. You an also check out the aircraft and RailRoad Freqs. We have a lot of Aircraft and train traffic in the area. As you've found out, your radio is not "Re-Band" capable, BUT, you still can hear "most" of the Salt Lake traffic on UCAN, and all of the traffic on the Salt Lake City system. Take a look thru the Utah database Utah Scanner Frequencies and Radio Frequency Reference, and see what your interested in.

Question on Freq's

Do you know if Aircraft, tower, approach, ground etc. (Salt Lake International) use a trunk system or are they strictly assigned freq's? Also, the freq for UTA Bus's is 453.75 (SL), 453.7 (Ogden). I have not been able to hear anything on the SL Bus freq. Also freq's for TRAX and Front Runner? Are any of them on a trunked system?
