• 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:

I've been having some trouble programming this system (U.S. Department of Defense: Project 25 Trunking System, Various, Multi-State - Scanner Frequencies), so if there is anyone that can help, it would be greatly appreciated. I entered the system in as a P25 trunk system, assigned the frequencies for both sites 5-2 and 5-4, and entered in all the talkgroups for Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton. Well, during scanning I get absolutely no reception. If I just scan the frequencies, the control channel squelches, but it is silent, and I can hear both 386.55000a and 388.02500 as conventional P25 channels. Anyone else have some other tips as to why I can't hear anything during a trunked scan, but can hear traffic during a normal conventional scan? It's fairly busy on those two frequencies in regular scan, so I know it has nothing to do with being a quiet system.

Cheers!

It should work :D

Do you have the main control channel programmed in ? (386.1000 cc). Just checked the control channel this morning it's on 386.1000.

Take the scanner out of "SCAN" and put it in "SEARCH".... See if it will pick up the talkgroups now...

I believe the thread should be in the California statewide area, as the system will cover every USMC facility in California and Arizona, at a minimum.
