• 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 bought a radioshack pro-106 scanner. I programmed using ARC500 and radio reference. I live in Colorado and I want to hear state patrol. All I get is local police, fire and ems. Any help would be appreciated.

Program this system into your scanner. Use the site closest to your location.
You might need/want to program the nearest towers, not just one tower. Smart trunking controllers will have some traffic will be carried on one tower, but not on another.

Find the towers that are nearest to you and add their frequencies to the list of frequencies for the trunking system.
