    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:

When the radio is searching it will throw out a three digit number as the NAC in use.

When going into conventional edit mode, how are the found NAC's programmed??? I can't find the push button steps in the manual, unless im getting dizzy and over looking it.- do you program the decimal or hex code into P-25 NAC: ???? I have the SQ mode set to P-25 search. I have specific found digits ie. 010, 020, 024 etc. Basically do you program what is found on search in the P25: field or do you have to convert it. Thanks.

All the NAC's I read are hex.

I may have been misunderstood here. I figured it out. I have a screen which states Edit mode- Hex, the the P-25 icon, then some sort of three letters in the lower right.

I finally hit 1 and at the top where it has Edit, 1234567890 appears. Then the 3 digits found during a search (NAC) are entered into the three letter spaces in the lower right of the screen. Then save, and manual.

The found P-25 is displayed in the lower left corner of this screen. Took me a while to figure this out because it is not in the manual as far as i know. Curfew.
