• 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 have decied I am going to order a PSR-800 tomorrow. My only question first is, I live in Baltimore, MD. I have watched a few videos on youtube about the scanner. My question is, my office is in Parkville MD which is police pct. 8. On RR the id's are 1840, 2288, 7728. Can I narrow down the search parameters on the scanner to just scan Parkville or do I have to listen to all of Baltimore Co at once? Or is there a way to put the ids in a bank to scan just them??? Thanks in advance.

You can put as many, or as few, items in a scan list as you want. You could put Parkville in a scan group, by itself, and the rest of the system in another scan list. (Or multiple lists.)
