• 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:

TRX-1 Programming

I have a whistler TRX-1 and am new to this. There is a Butler County Scanner Group on Facebook where they have a Motorola xts5000 that runs different city police dept. playing on it. The scanner displays 09-Dispatch & 09-Tango - City of Hamilton for the police department. What does this stand for and how do I program this into my TRX-1? The County Sheriff displays as ZULA - County Sheriff. Local Fire is 09- Alpha County. Thanks for any feedback.

First - make sure Scanner Playlist matches the EZ scan Playlist, whatever you are using (County/City) or System.
then, Plug in your Scanner, and Launch EZ scan, you should Update the EZ scan Library.
then allow the Scanner to Update your SD card.
then go to Library Import and ONLY check off Catagories you want to Scan, such as PD, Fire, EMS but leave services Public Works and Utlities unchecked.
then, Set Your Location, such as USA, State, and County/City, do not use Zip its a waste of time.
Import your favorite Citys and County you want to scan. Once you have finished Importing, you are now Ready to Program the Scanner.

Select Menu , then scroll down to Browse Library, select USA/State/ then select Counties/City, enter County, then go through Agency, Catagories and Systems. keeping in mind PD may appear in Both as a Category (Analog) or Systems (P25), when you Select Systems you are Presented with Sites and Catagories, here you can Select Transmitter Sites if you know the Location. and Catagories will be Items like PD, Fire EMS for each County Alphabetized. be careful as they will combine PD and Sanitation/Dog Catcher in each County Folder, so just be aware you might have to Scroll Down to get ALL the PD channels. Once you have Checked off all you want to Scan, press Menu then Import Selected , then Select the Playlist you want the Channels in. Once you have finished Programing its a good idea to Back up your data, select that on the EZ scan menu.

What is your zipcode so we can look up the system in the database as we have no idea what state you're talking about.
