• 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:

What am I doing wrong in DB search?

In the NJ database, I can easily find the DEP park, F&W and forestry frequencies within the FCC licenses. Using the Win500 2.02 software for the 106 (manufactured in June 2011), I am missing something obvious. Upon starting "Download from the Web" it is easy to drill down to a county list, select and upload selected groups and conventional frequencies. All is well.

In Win500, what I cannot figure is to find and upload statewide conventional frequencies (other than those on the trunked NJSP system displayed within each county's list)? I live in the Pine Barrens, and forest fires are always a concern. The DEP frequencies are CONV and statewide, but nowhere to be found

A workaround I figured out does work: create a talkgroup in Win500, in RR display the FCC licenses, and copy and paste the selected multiple lines as a group onto the Win500 tabbed page. Last step is change the Alpha Tags.

There has to be an easier way. Thanks.

FWIW, I will be uploading a Win500 file to the NJ forum later this evening. It includes NJSP, Burlington, Camden and Philadelphia. Hope it helps. Feedback is welcome.

Tom if by DEP you mean the Dept of Environmental Protection, I find them under NJ State Agencies. I don't have Win500, but do you have an entry for that in the RRDB download?

Using advise by Chauffeur6, make sure you set another Scanlist prior to finish up of Import.

Senility is setting in. I thought I had tried this in Win500, but apparently not Maybe I need to clean my reading glasses. :-(

Chauffeur6, your info was spot on. Thanks. I missed this step, nor did I catch it in the Utah Radio site. Frank, your added comment is noted, thank you. Mike, as always thanks, but when do you have time to go to work? I see your name littered all through the forums on RR. Akin to Chickenman, "he's everywhere, he's everywhere... pluck... pluck... pluck.." Hehe.

FWIW, I added an green flashing LED (forest) to the Forestry Service. and cyan blue (sky) to the three approach/departure WRI frequencies used by McGuire AFB. We are directly, precisely, under the glideslope for the main runway. I'm catching a lot of activity as critters go over the house. The LED grabs one's attention.

Thanks all again.
Tom
