    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:

Well, it's been a long time and I was wondering if anyone had any clue as to the 'secret feature'? Supposedly, Rich @ stronsignals knew, but I guess he's not/can't talk about here.

Anyone have a clue?

Was it the '9600' control channel monitor?
MilAir via test mode?

I think it was just marketing BS to get people talking about the scanner.

You mean this secret?

Basically you get some "easter egg" message by pressing the buttons in a certain order.

Press [PGM]
Press [FUNC]
Press [PGM]
Press [TEXT]

Press [TRUNK]

Read the message then

Press [TUNE]

to read the names of the witty individuals who created this "secret".

The Pro-51 secret was a lot cooler--you pressed certain buttons, you got to unlock the cellular frequencies. But you already knew that.

Unlock Cell with a Pro-51? Never heard of it, though Uncle Charlie would be very interested if you did suceed!

Perhaps I need a 51 after all...
