    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:

Greetings everyone in Colorado...

I'm going to be coming through Colorado near the end of the month from KS enroute back to CA, and want to monitor CSP along I-70. I have a couple of questions...

1. I'm using a PRO-97 and just realized most (if not all) DTRS sites are showing in the database as digital. Can I monitor digital on a 97?

2. When I try to program the talkgroups, the software tells me that the ID's are not valid because they are not in multiples of 16. Is that part of the system being digital and not compatible with my scanner, or is there something else going on?

3. If I cannot monitor DTRS, are there any conventional patch channels (VHF, UHF, 800 analog) that I can monitor to at least get some information?

Thanks for your help.
