    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:

I'm just starting this thread because I am looking for suggestions as to how I can better organize the channels in my 396T.

Currently I have each trunked system organized as its own "system" in the scanner, and a "system" with all the conventional stuff in my area, Followed by another "system" for each county.

Any comments/Suggestions/ideas?

Sounds good to me, I have mine about like that. I have each counties conventional and trunked in its own system, with state and federal or whatever it might be in their own systems. Its one of things, whatever suits you best, however you are comfortable with it. I'm fairly new to the 396, but I have it organized like listed above with a quick to each system and different quick keys to groups with in a system. I live in Colorado so most of what you have is digital P25, conventional, and an EDACS system in the Denver metro area.

I have one jurisdication/county per quick key... inside I try to set them up with the same sub-groups -- i.e. Fire dispatch/routine (QK-1), Fireground (QK-2), Public Works, (QK-7), Police Main TGs (QK-9), etc. That way, when I switch from system to system, the "types" of activity are generally all in the same place.
