    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:

Forgive me if I have missed this searching the other threads,

I am trying to program a BCD996T with a MARCS site, but I can't get it to program Control-Channel Only Mode.

Reading page 81 of owners manual it says

"Setting Control-Channel Only Mode M (except for P25)"

Does this mean Control-Channel Only Mode is not available on the 996?

P25 systems always use control-channel only mode, so there is no need for a setting. However, MARCS is not a P25 system. It is a Motorola Type 2 system with APCO-25 voice channels. The sites should be programmed as Motorola Type II/800.

Thanks a bunch.

It is crazy how terms or slang for terms can cause such confusion (especially before a sufficient amount of coffee).

Now that you say that, I do remember reading the P25 vs. APCO 25 topic before.

Thanks again
