• 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've just spent almost a half-hour searching through the BCD396T post-release thread. Now I understand why people post new threads with questions that somebody already answered somewhere. :twisted:

So, here's my possibly redundant question:

What does an asterisk mean in place of a group number in trunked scan mode?

Example: GRP12----7-*0

What's up with Group 9 in this example?

Means group 9 is turned off because the quick key for that group is toggled off (as opposed to the group being turned off (or locked out) by way of the programming mode).

Thanks for the clarification. I knew it wasn't locked out because I kept checking, but the disabled GQC makes sense.
