• 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:

My local fire department is on an EDACS system. I have programed their talk groups in to my scanner. They dispatch on Firemain but go to Tac 1, 2 or 3 depending on the need. I would like to be able to hold on the individual tac so that I do not hear all the dispatch traffic. Any suggestions on how to do this?

Thanks

Jim

Re;

Once you are on the TAC channel you want to stay on, just press the hold key.
You can also press the hold key at anytime to stop the scan, then use the orange scroll bar to scroll backwards or forwards to any talk group id you want.

Thanks for your help. I had actually tried what you said before and it didn't work. I found that I still had priority on. Now all is well.

Thanks
