• 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:

Mot ID refers to the talk group ID, not the system ID. Since the 296 doesn't display that information you wont' see it as Firecop wrote.

Ok , thx...my Pro 87 will have to do that job I guess,...also Ill answer my own question , there is no way to use 800 Mhz CC mode onoy on a EDAC system ?

And the reason I asked about the SysID was in a search mode ( IE : 140 - 144 ) I find a Contraol Channel , it appears like it wants to to display the SYS ID...hence the MOT ID:_ _ _ _ _ _

Tg's display fine....Hmmm ok

Q# 3 : I saw an upgrade for this scanner..tho the info on what it can do , was a little vauge...what does the upgrade do for us 296D owners ?

EDACS systems, by definition, are Logical Channel Number systems. The channel numbers available are 1 - 25, so there cannot be a table set up that covers all the possible frequency pairs in the 800 MHz band. Hence the table is you putting the correct frequency in the correct LCN slot, so no there is no such thing as CCh Mode for EDACS (or LTR for that matter).

When monitoring a CCh in manual or hold mode, a lot of radios will display the TG's being granted channels as the channel grant is made.

Depends on what download/upgrade you are talking about. They all have been discussed at one time or another here in Uniden Forum.

That was the "Detroit" issue fix. Although firmware updates always contain the previous "fixes" also so it is a good idea to apply them. The Detroit problem was due to the P25 system there being modified during the Super Bowl to not "advertise" the channel line up, but rather use an "implicit" channel line up.
