Thumbs up PSR 800 and DSD single scanner solution!

Evening everyone,

So it appears that GRE did a CPU Update on the 25th to the 800 and slipped this little gem in

Add option to tune to digital and/or encrypted voice calls on EDACS systems. While the scanner will tune to those talkgroups, the scanner cannot decode the ProVoice data or decrypt an encrypted voice channel

I have already tested it and it works flawlessly with DSD and the IF out on the headphones

Now if they would only add this option back in to the PSR 500 life would be good

I still like Unitrunker for the over all big picture.. but this is a nice quick and dirty on the go option for a Netbook with Linux and the 800 or say someone wanting to set up a feed with just one or two talk groups

in deed this works

EDACS Esk Tracking With Provoice

Here is a how to (For PSR-800 Only)

In -Settings-
PC/IF CCDump (put a Check mark so this opion is active)
EDACS Dig (put a Check mark so this opion is active)
IF Out: (Set this to HP) HP is the headphone jack

!! Make shure you have your radio programed to your local edacs system and the talk group is
in provoice format

after the above you will need dsd or dsd+ For the non pros you need dsd+ remember the lame file
for dsd+ install them into a windows 7 or 8.x pc now hook up a Stereo to Stereo audio cable from your scanner to computer sound card mic first then if that dont work try line in

now scan the provoice talkgroup when there is a lock on to a provoice channel
you will need to volume up or down button on scanner note it says (IF Out Vol: xx) xx is any value
adjust the volume some where from 16-22 for best decode

now the edacs esk/provoice light is on and your no longer in the dark ENJOY
