    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:

if this is in the wrong section, a moderator can move it please.

I was wondering, is there any way to get the Radio ID of the transmittign radio to display instead of Unit ID.

for instance. When listening to London Public Safety's Fire talk group, insttead of seeing:

UID: 4071,

it would say

UID: Engine 7A

and instead of

UID: 4211

it would say

UID: Truck 7A


I know this would more than likely require firmware or database modification, but what i would like to know is could it be done?

It absolutely can be done - through the radio itself or via the programming software. No firmware update required.

You will need to

#1 - create a favorite list

#2 - You will need to enter the info yourself - or if you have it somewhere, cut and pate.

FWIW - I keep a spreadsheet and C&P several favorite lists and other radio files.

There is actually a radio id tab in sentinel to enter this data for each system. You do not need the extreme update unless you want to enter it directly to the radio.

You also need to turn on the display of unit id in the menu.
