• 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 live in an area that has 5 EDAC Towers.
Corpus Christi, TX

Each Truck system has 270 Talk groups...
Right now, I have to duplicate every talkgroup 5 times so that when I roam around it picks up the closet tower.

Is there a way I can share Talk Group IDS?

Also, I have another scanner that you can set to either open or close group..
this lets you hear all talkgroups or just the ones programed...

How do I listen to all talk groups on a truck system without knowing the ID?

Thanks for any help....

Put all the frequencies (just the control channels) for all the sites into 1 system. If you set 'Multi-site to 'Roam' for the system, the scanner will pick the strongest site (frequency). If you set 'Multi-site to 'Stat' for the system, the scanner will scan all the sites (frequencies).

Sorry, that won't work in this case. The system the OP is referring to is EDACS, not a Motorola or P25, so all frequencies for each site to be monitored have to be entered in correct LCN position, each site in a separate TSYS object.

Right, forgot it was EDACS.

thanks for everyone's suggestions...
I did a little more research and found its not possible to share talk groups between EDACS .
While the multi-site function on the GRE manufactured scanners, which includes your Pro-106, works very well on P25 & Motorola systems, it's of no help for EDACS. The Uniden DMA scanners with multi-site capability allow you to do what you want with EDACS as well as Motorola or P25 systems. However, GRE's system seems to function a bit more smoothly on the system types it does support.
