• 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:

If you've found a new talk group via the Wildcard feature and you locked out the TG by pressing the Skip button after the scanner stopped on Wildcard!, how can you review and see what the talk group ID was that you locked out?

You have to go into settings menu and restore your skipped items. That's the only way I know of but there might be more. The easier to read for the 800 is very helpful.

PSR-800 review wildcards

My WS1080 is basically a PSR-800. I have found when you press "menu" during the Wildcard hit .. IT will show the menu to store wildcard. After storing you can name it. THEN... you go to browse objects and you find it IN the scanlist where you have the wildcard enabled. It will be at the bottom of the scanlist. This is one reason I import all talkgroups including the Enc ones in a System and select to lock them out during import. This way new Wildcard hits won't be so hard to find without ENC talkgroups interfering.

This sounds like good advice and I'll give it a try. The Wildcard feature is hard to use. It's hard to see the talk group ID and it's hard to hold on a new TG ID without knowing if what you're holding on the just the Wildcard or the specific ID. Once the carrier drops, it loses the talk group and you're back to wildcard mode, I think. It's annoying the way it all works. Why couldn't they just have an ID search like the Unidens?

That's actually the problem. You can restore skipped items, but it doesn't seem to have a list where you can scroll through and SEE what is locked out. All I want to do is review and see the TGIDs. I'm trying to get all the ProVoice talk groups on an EDACS system weeded out and put into a scanlist.

I believe after you get done locking out the items you could use EZScan and Copy Configuration From Scanner Memory/SD Card then view in EZScan what is locked out. I think that is what you are trying to do directly with the radio.

Or you can lock out everything then just unlock what you want to hear. Probably your best bet would be to use EZ scan.
