    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:

Hi, I'm very new to this. I have had a Radioshack Pro-67 for many years but never really used it that much. However, I am now interested in listening to Orange County Sheriff's Sector 5 Patrol... International drive area. I have been messing around with it and looking up info but I cannot seem to find the exact specific frequency for just OCSO Sector 5. Anyone know? Or could help me? Thank you!! Lisa

So basically the Radioshack Pro-67 is not a trunking scanner? I know it scans through some 800 frequencies and I occasionally find sector 4 briefly and sector 2 or 3. My fiance is a deputy and I'm just curious as to occasionally listen to the calls they go to and hear what's going on.. but I specifically would like to listen to sector 5 and maybe sector 4.. and although I can catch sector 4 briefly, it never stays around. I pick up EMS more so as it scans around. But I don't know how to just limit it to one sector or the other and keep it at that.. maybe you can't.. or maybe it's the scanner though I can pick some sectors up.

So the Pro-97 should work then for this?
From what i've read all over the internet, the pro-67 is not a trunking scanner, but yes the pro-97 would work fine for this. The reason you can't ever listen to the sectors is because a trunking system jumps frequencies, but stays on the same "talkgroups". So, if you get a trunking capable scanner, then you can limit it down to only sector 5 by just locking out all the other talkgroups. All the TG'S are listed under the frequencies on the orange county trunking page.
