• 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:

Howdy,

My buddy has a Pro-2051 and asked that I help him get it working here for stuff happening around town. In town and the surrounding county we have the following:

System Type: Motorola Type II Smartnet
System Voice: Analog and APCO-25 Common Air Interface

I tried getting it to work and thought that I had it set up right. But we never hear any of the trunking traffuc. I mean, I hear the control channel but never any of the calls of voices decoded within the talk groups programmed. I think that this scanner will not work with the Radio system installed because it is not a digital scanner.

What do y'all say or think about this?

Thanks,

Pete

Exactly what system is it. If any of the TGIDs are marked as A they can be listened to. The system has both analog and digital IDs.

Thanks!

Jerry and Hoser,

Thanks for the quick response. That is what I surmised yesterday morning when looking at the stuff I printed out from here regarding the system here in Charlottesville/Albemarle.
