• 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 have followed the instructions in the manual but can't lock-out an id group while in the trunk scanning mode. When I try, the screen reads "FULL". I only have 8 id numbers in bank 1 and 2 in bank 2

Sounds like you've hit the limit for how many talkgroups you can have locked out (on the 245, it's 200- likely it's less for its older brother). I'd suggest reprogramming the bank, which I think should clear out the locked out talkgroups and include only those you want to hear. The other way would likely be to restore all the locked out talkgroups and deleting them. That might take a bit since there's no PC interface on the 235 however....73 Mike

Up to 100 ID's can be locked out on the BC235 (PDF manual page 42).

From the PDF manual page 43:
To unlock all locked out IDs at once, follow these steps:
1. Press and hold LO until you hear two short beeps.
2. Press E to unlock all the IDs at once.
