• 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 know its early, but I have a question about display modes on the BCT15.

Is there any way to get the GRP (groups) to display while scanning?

No. If you press the F-KNOB, the GRP Status will appear for a few seconds. If you press and Hold F-KNOB, until a solid 'F' appears on display, the GRP Status will remain on screen for the system scanned until you release the F-KNOB.

You don't say what you are scanning when you want it to do this. But, for trunked systems, the channels are never "scanned." The scanner sits on the control channel and compares every active TGID in the data stream with the ones you've programmed into channels to see if the comms should be monitored. So, the idea of "when is the scanner scanning the channels in a particular group in a system" is one that is only valid during conventional scanning.

I think he's referring to the 396/330/246 which always show the groups that are enabled when scanning...
