• 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 live in a huge metro area and have several thousand conventional frequencies and trunked talk groups in my scanner. I can see how to set the delay factor on individual channels or talkgroups. However, the default value of 2.0 seconds is too fast for me and I would like to change it to a default value of 5.0 and/or reset all existing values to 5.0 seconds. It is a hassle to do this one by one. Is there anyway to do a global change in the software so I don't have to do all these one by one? Thanks for ideas, if you have any.

Second, when I am on the road I want to enable and disable specific transmitter sites in a wide area system (hundreds of miles). I know how to do it using the software but I don't see a way to do this just on the scanner itself when I am on the road with no computer available. Any thoughts, ideas comments? Thanks

You can go into the object lists, click on the left column of any object, then press Ctrl-A to select all objects. Then click on the delay column on any object and set the delay there. All objects will be set to that value. This works on the Conventional list, talkgroup list, Radio Id List, and Scan list pages.

Not without duplicating the system to multiple copies...
