    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.

Hi Group.

I have been offered an as-new (10 hours listening time total) Pro-96 complete setup (radio, USB-programming cable, AC adapter, Battery packs, box,etc) for a great price. I have a BCD396T and run it on the Ontario Fleetnet system. (Southern Ontario). The Uniden has the ability to lock out talk-group ID's (I listen to OPP but NOT the ambulance chatter, and so it is a simple matter to lock out those ID's out when they show up in the scanning process).

Does anyone know if the Pro-96 has the same capability to lock out these talk-groups as the BCD396T, as I am not yet familiar with the programming characteristics of this radio?

Thanks. Regards.
Dave

Yes just hit L/OUT (bottom middle button on the Pro-96) when those groups come up.
Or it can be done in software.. like the WIN96 software you program all the TG ID's and just click off the L/O column

Now the Pro-96 does not have the same talkgroup capacity as the 396 so on huge systems you may not be able to lock out everything (as it counts as 1 TG when you lockout).

But on Fleetnet you should be fine...

Alternately, instead of locking out what you DON'T want simply select a bank, set it to 'Closed' mode and program in the talkgroups that you DO want. It will then ignore everything else. If the price is right go for it, I think you will be very happy with the Pro-96's digital audio quality.

Hi Guys.
Thanks for the quick answers and suggestions...Looks like it will be a go for me to purchase then. BTW, the sale price was $200 Cdn, so I figured I can't go wrong.
Thanks again.
