• 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:

This may have been ask before, if so I apologize I’m new.

I purchased a Whistler TRX-1 few months ago and as much as I love it, I struggle to get it programmed right. I have the software installed and did all that, and used the zip code thing to program my area but the problem seems to be that it scans so much that it takes forever to get back to the things I like to listen to like Police, fire and ems. I’m sure there is a way to cut a lot if this out, but I am struggling to figure it out. Does anyone know of a company or person I could go through online or to send my scanner to have it programmed where they could remove a lot of the stuff I don’t listen to, or someone that could teach me how to do it? Thanks in advance.

Brownstown is using the Downriver Mutual Aid (Project 25) Radio System

https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?sid=7219

If you use EZ Scan you can add this system and select only the talk groups you want to hear. I would suggest using the PREFERRED method for adding the system rather than zip code/state/city methods. After you add this you can use the EZ Scan to delete other systems/frequencies you do not want.

Alternately, you can add the individual talk groups to separate scan lists and turn them on/off as needed.
