• 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:

ProScan: Separate recording per RID mic key?

When I record a talkgroup and later play it back, I can't see any way to see what RID is talking (not what RID started a conversation [see below] but what RID is making each separate mic keyup). Is there a combination of options and filenames that will replicate the Uniden BCDx36HP's recording functionality? That is, on a channel that has RIDs (e.g., a trunked system), I want to record a new audio file every time a different user keys his mic. If I use the RID in the filename, (1) it doesn't switch the RID in the filename when a new RID keys up, only when the conversation "ends" (times out) (i.e., it only uses the first RID that started a conversation), and (2) it just adds new conversations started by a RID to the end of that RID's file.

Alternatively, I don't see where ProScan stores RIDs (changes or otherwise) inside the MP3 file using metadata (like the BCDx36HPs do). If I could turn that on, at least I could see who said what after the fact.
