• 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:

Will the Pro-97 display the encode and decode tones while you are just randomly scanning? I have a radio that I am programing but can not utalize the local repeaters as I do not know the tones to access them. Hope this questions makes sense......

Only if it's in CT or DC mode. If the channel is in FM it will not, but if it is set to CT or DC, then yes it will show them. While the code is being displayed if you press Enter it will be stored.

FM it will not decode any tones such as PL, this would be CSQ.

CT is CTCSS which means it will decode PL unless one is programmed in, then audio will only be allowed to pass when that PL is present and will reject all the other unwanted transmissions (intermod).

OK makes sense. So just to clarify, if you put the scanner in CT mode and you do not actually have the CTCSS tone programmed into the scanner for a specific freq, then the scanner will display the tone access code from the repeater when it is heard?

Yes. And same for DPL (Digital Coded Squelch) if you put it in "DC" mode.
