    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:

Hello, I have the Montebello talk group frequencies set up. I want to know: If I want to listen and scan only one talk group id such as the park rangers (Talk ID 7204) how do I lock onto the talkgroup so I hear only the tag ID 7204? FYI I have a Pro 97 scanner. Any help would be appreciated

You can set your scanner to follow a trunk ID that you want to track during scanning. There are three was to do this, while the scanner is stopped on the talk group id that you want to listen to.

1. You can hold down TRUNK for two seconds until “ID hold ON” appears.

2. You can press PSE, then “ID hold ON” appears.

Now the third way is to manually go through the Trunk ID bank and find the ID.

1. While scanning the bank you want to listen, press MAN, you will hear the control channel.
2. Then press FUNC and the press TRUNK. This will put you in the ID Bank mode.
3. Using the UP and DOWN keys, look for the ID you want to listen to. Once you find it, press FUNC and then press TRUNK. This will put that ID on “ID hold Mode”

To release “ID hold”. You can press SCAN, TRUNK or PSE
