• 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 am gonig to buy a Pro 106 Scanner on wednesday for Northern Virginia (Alex, Fairfax, Arlington, DC, STARS). I purchased Win500 last night and here is my question. When I use Win 500 and Download the Frequency and Talk Groups, Will i need to go into the Talking Tables within Win500 and pick a Band Plan? Thanks in advance for your comments

'Talking' tables? I think you mean 'Trunking' - and the answer would be no I don't think so. However in at least one instance - the DC system - if you are interested in hearing MPD, you would need to go into tables to set offsets, as it's a UHF system. This article covers this issue...

Programming the MPDC in Digital Scanners - The RadioReference Wiki

Look at the very bottom in the technical notes section

best regards...Mike

Win500 will auto set correct tables for Motorola systems both VHF/UHF trunking and 800 rebanded unless database page does not reflect 800 reband. This application is for Fairfax, Alex, Arlington 800 Mot and DC UHF or DC 800.

For P25 systems Win500 will set TSYS to P25 Auto. Then when scanner first acquires the CC, the tables will auto populate. This application is for STARS, Arlington P25 and other FED VHF/UHF P25 systems in area.
