• 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 have an RS Pro 164 scanner. I am using ARC 300 programming software. I have entered all pertinant data including the text tags for the talk groups I want to follow - HOWEVER, for some reason MOST of the time the text tag Id for the talk group does not display on the screen when a transmission is occuring. It usually just displays the decimal Tag ID number.

I have entered all of the information in the program in the proper column (I beleive).

What am I missing?, What have I not done?

ALSO can anyone explaing the SUB Bank concept and its purpose? ( maybe this has something to do wiith my problem?)

And while i am at it-- why hasnt anyone written a Trunk Tracking for Dummies yet?
I would be happy to colaboreat on one and get it posted for easy access if we could produce one that is throrugh , and Very Easy to Understand......

thanks Ed. DUH on my part. Aparently with all of a futile programminng attempts I had turned that off. It did the trick. I do agreee with so many that the stock instruction book assumes way too much for it to be usefull to any newby. It is more of quick reference manual.
Thanks Again de N8ACU
