• 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:

programing MARCS IP system in trx1. I would like to know if I just want 1 system programed in, can I put like 2 sites from that system in a different scan set will it scan those sites or will it just scan the strongest site? I was going to put 2 sites into different scan sets for a total of 12 sites. Anybody know if this will work? Thank you.

You are confusing Scan Sets with Scan Lists. Scan Sets are a way to group various Scan Lists (1 or more) to quickly enable/disable Scan Lists. Very helpful when you have numerous Scan Lists (I have 50) and you don't want to scroll through your Scan Lists enabling/disabling them.

You can have more than 1 site programmed in for each System. Scan List can have multiple Systems associated with them. For instance you can have MARCS-IP and Summit County Talkgroups associated with Scan List 1 (I wouldn't do that). Another way to look at Scan Lists is that it is a way of distributing Talkgroups from a System or multiple systems.

Hope this is not too confusing. As an example, I have MARCS-IP Ohio State Police in Scan List 40 and MARCS-IP ODOT in Scan List 41.
