• 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:

On a BCD 396 XT:
Is there a (quick) way to check the TGID of a channel where you have a text label assigned to it. (other than going through the menu, finding the channel and looking...)

Hold on the channel. Then hold down the function button and hit the number 5. That toggles between the TGID number and name on the 396T, it might be the same on the the 396XT.

Also I know on the 996XT you can use display mode 2 which will show the TGID and the name at the same time. So hold on the TG and hold the function key then hit 6 to change that mode.

Somebody else can pipe in and correct me if any of this is wrong.

My 396XT displays the TGID on the third line on the left side of the display when it picks up a transmission with a programmed TGID...it also displays TGID during IDSearch within a system of TGIDs.....other than that I think you just have to go through the menus.

That did the trick. Thanks all for your help.

I was incorrect. This works on the 396T but not on the 396XT.

On the XT Func+6 will do the trick though.
