    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 am using a Pro-95 Radioshack Scanner, and I am trying to pick up the Alief Community VFD dispatch trunking channel in FORT BEND, TEXAS. I am able to pick up the CTRL channel for the Clodine Tower at 853.92500 MHZ. I have the dispatch TalkGroup ID entered, the ID bank open (+) where the TalkGroup ID is entered in at, and the 500 bank closed (-) where I have the CTRL channel entered in at. However I am unable to receive any transmissions when I am in SCAN mode... (I am a firefighter for Alief Community VFD, and when we are dispatched to a call, I cannot get any parts of the dispatch to come over my scanner.)

Any Ideas and/or solutions, guys?

The system you are trying to monitor has rebanded. The pro95 isn't rebandable. It will work if the freqs ended with 4 digits like 852.1875 or 853.6375 etc, but when they are 3 digits or less and ending with a zero like 852.0750 or 853.1000 etc, it will not trunk track the system. Looks like most of the voice channels on your system are ending in zero. Sorry for the bad news
