• 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:

Is there a way for me to scan a trunked system not by talkgroup but by radio id? I have a PRO-107 and I've input several radio id's (via the software), but all that does is display the text on the LCD when that RID is active. But, is there a way for me to monitor that RID as it jumps around different talkgroups (without monitoring the individual talkgroups)

That's what I was afraid of, but thanks for the reply! I figured it was worth a shot!

Have not tried this but if you only had the RID in the table and left the TGID out, wouldn't the radio track only the RID?

No, that would not work. It's not possible to "track" RID's in any scanner. You track the talkgroup and as a result RID's are decoded and displayed.

I am going to look into this some more. The ISCAN software (Version 1.04) gives the user the ability to manage "Radio ID Details" under the "Trunked Radio Systems".
