• 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:

Did you use the freqs as listed in the database here? Are you hearing the control channel - which will sound rather loudly like a digital noise? If you can't hear the control channel cleanly (that is, without any noise or fading), you can't trunk. Make sure you haven't mistakenly locked it out (which is what many do, thinking this must be interference of some kind).

Problem

im very familiar with trunking and programming with the 2052 do i have to enter all known frequencies or only the control channels. right now the njsp troop c control channel does trunk i set it to e2-800 and program the id's but the scanner is failing to decode the TG's right now i only have the control chennels programmed for the system my question is for the 2052 do i have to enter every known frequency??

Yes, the 2052 is an older scanner, so you need to have all the Troop C freqs programmed in. I'm pretty sure this scanner does not support control-channel only mode.

You didn't seem to answer the primary question though - can you hear the control channel clearly? If it's weak, you won't be able to trunk the system well, if at all. An external antenna will be needed.
