• 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:

The RR Database indicates which talkgroup IDs are digital and which talkgroup IDs are analog.

On a trunked radio system think in terms of talkgroups, not channels.

Channels are the actual repeater frequencies that TGs are transmitted and received over.

Your scanner tracks talkgroups on channels, but it is specific talkgroup traffic that you monitor.

Check the Mode column in the Viper System. The Viper database has just under 300 digital talkgroups and close to 250 analog.

Using List All then highlight all and select copy, then Paste Special in excel will list 556 total ID's. Sort on Mode will list 3 unknown, 244 analog and the rest as digital.

Edit: Guess pboy clicked send first.:p

Hex and DEX go in. They are 2 different formats for they ID that's why you see different numbers on each for the same ID. Depends on what you have your scanner setup to decode. :)

DEC is decimal..that is what our scanners use for talkgroup IDs..you really only need to worry about the DEC column....HEX is Hexadecimal which is what programmers use to program two way radios (such as Motorola, etc)...we include both DEC and HEX versions of IDs to make it easier to cross reference IDs...you can find a Talkgroup converter site at the following URL:

Hope this helps!
