• 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:

Several agencies just updated to the P25 system so I had to update my scanners. I also downloaded the most recent version of WIN500. For some reason some of the groups are not showing the ALPHA TAGS even though they are all filled in.

Any ideas what I am missing?

I want to get my feed back online tomorrow.

Thanks!

Mistake I've often made, not uploading to the scanner. I just did an update in frequencies to my 106 and 197. No problems with the uploads.
Another point, did you save the file? If not, it might not have worked. These are just a couple of things that used to cause hair to fall out:)

Alpha Tag

When I've downloaded various sites, depending on the radio system and location, the alpha tag or description tag will sometimes not load. Make sure you have checked the area in Win500 about how you want it to read, there is a box to write you own as well. You can experiment with which one transfers the alpha tag and/or descriptor to the radio.
