Question I have questions about LTR and a discriminator port

In order to save money and avoid having to buy new EFJ equipment. Has anyone had success in monitoring an LTR system with the software found on RR and what scanner should I buy to add a port to? Any help is appreciated. In searching the RR database I found a very nice discriminator port added with a usb port that is what i am looking for. Thanks, Radio10-8

We have a forum dedicated to LTR Trunking here...

LTR Trunking - The Forums

However your question begs another one; what kind of LTR are you looking to monitor? Most of the more modern scanners can trunk LTR Standard systems; when you start wandering into MultiNet or Passport territory, no scanner can do that. In these cases, I would imagine tapping an old scanner (like a venerable Pro-2006) is the way to go.

There was a very old discussion - on the trunking forum, I think - about using LTRDump or LTRAnalyzer
(both of which we have links for in our wiki), and modifying a data slicer to more efficiently pass the low-freq data streams - but I haven't seen anything new in that topic for a very long time.
