• 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 am having trouble Programing my new scanner. i am only receiving part of the Pinellas County Florida System. I joined Radio Reference to access their downloads for this scanner. I am only interested in having fire, police and EMS programed into the radio. Any help will be greatly appreciated

FRANK.

You can get the Sentinel downloads without joining RR.

Make sure you the appropriate System Types are enabled, ae Police Dispatch, Fire Dispatch, EMS Dispatch, and the TAC types if you want to hear them.

Can you be more specific about what you are not hearing.

Make sure all the sites are programmed and nothing is avoided. Certain talkgroups may or may not affiliate with certain sites.

Check your location and range settings as well. Below are a couple easier to Read manuals:

In programing my radio I followed the instructions and used the zip code for my location. I am only receive parts of the system that pertains to law enforcement (several police and county sheriff). There are 19 different fire depts, with one central dispatch for the entire county. I want to program the radio with the police which I am receiving and the fire dept dispatch. It is a little overwhelming to figure it out.
Thank You
Frank

Hi Frank,

You mentioned zip codes but never mentioned Favorite Lists. If you become familiar with making FLs, your listening pleasure will explode exponentially. (Just my opinion).
