• 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 am new to digital trunked systems here in CO. I have enjoyed scanning for 30 years but never in the digital mode. Now I am trying to catch up - I have a BC996, live in Fort Collins, with Butel software. I am new to the area and totally lost on programing! I know you probabily hate these type of posts. I am not sure I am in the right location - but I am trying it.

I need help setting up my 996 and actually seeing it work!!!!

I kinda understand some of the basics, I am looking for a mentor - Help Please.

If you could pass along files of your setups perhaps I could start to play there.

Are there any locals that get together and talk "shop" and might be able to help me?

Thanks For any consideration.

Welcome to the Colorado Forum! The only advice I can give you is to check the database. Most of Larimer County is now on the State Digital system(DTRS). Check there for Control Channels(probably Horsetooth would be your best bet)and Talkgroups. Maybe somebody up north could send him some files??

Larimer County SO is actually still VHF.

DTRS TG's remain testing.
