• 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 know how to use a wildcard I thought, but it appears something has changed recently.

When ever I used to get a wildcard hit, I could just press the Menu button and in the menu list the very first thing was to Save it. I don't even see it listed anymore.

Maybe they changed something and it moved. But it sure was nice the way it was before. This also effects my 1080 also.

I have noticed another issue possibly also, the wildcard does not seem to be working when in a scanlist in scan mode, if I browse to the wildcard and press Sel, I get hits all the time, it does not seem consistent.

Wilcard

There were changes to the menus from 4.1 - 4.3 on My WS1080 due to DMR stuff. 4.4 *the latest* has the Wildcard save option. If you dropped back to another firmware maybe that's why it's gone. I've been saving DMR wildcards the last few days with 4.4

My scanner is all up to date. I deleted all my TG's except for the wildcard. Works fine, just like I described before. It appears the system I am monitoring just does not get any new TG's anymore lately. They been building it out for about a year now, I guess I have every talkgroup on the system. Can't save a wildcard hit that is already in the list.
