• 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:

My PSR 600 will not receive any of the trunked systems that are programmed into to it. I receives conventional frequencies ok. I used the same program (ARC 500 Pro) and data to program my PSR 500 and 2 Radio Shack Pro 197's which work fine. I have tried Factory reset and that has not helped.

My Versions Are:
uP Appl Ver: U2.1
DSP App Ver: U.14
DSP Voc Ver: F1,0

Has any one else sent their GRE scanner back to Whistler for repairs?

Thanks,

It probably won't make a difference but FYI there is a CPU firmware update version 2.3 available for the PSR-500 and PSR-600. See this RR thread for full information and download instructions: http://forums.radioreference.com/gre-scanners/314560-psr-500-600-firmware-2-3-a.html

From what others have been told by Whistler and have posted here on RR, Whistler will ONLY repair their own scanners. They WILL NOT repair Radio Shack branded scanners (even though the current models are made by Whistler) or GRE branded scanners (even though Whistler purchased all of the intellectual rights to those scanners a few years back).

Has your PSR 600 ever worked with trunked systems? Did it just recently stop working?

If you "tune" to a digital control channel frequency does it appear to be decoding the signal on the PSR 600 screen?

Just curious...

Was working but one day stopped trunk tracking !

No it is not decoding the trunked signals.
