• 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:

Hi everyone, I have been reading via Google how a trunk system works. I still am not clear on where things need put. Example : I have Armstrong County that has (5) 800mhz frequencies for dispatching. Then I have Westmoreland County with (3) 800mhz frequencies for dispatching. Would it be best to put each county in one scan list or should I put them in their own scan list? Next, when I add the talk group IDs, should they be kept all together or should I separate them into their own categories like all fire together, all police, etc.

I would separate the counties into their own scan list, and then separate the individual departments so that you can turn them on/off as needed. Looking at the ICORRS system and the Armstrong ID's I would even further separate the East and West Divisions so you can turn them on/off as needed. We have 2 Divisions here in Tulsa and 1 is busier than the rest so if you want to hear anything in the other two you have to shut it down.

So let me get this straight. I should put Armstrong Co. Dispatch say to scan list #1, then Westmoreland Co. Dispatch to scan list #2. From there I could use scan list #3 for TG Armstrong Fire and so on .
