• 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:

Hey guys i was wondering if my Pro96 will decode LTR systems? If so how do you program them into the scanner, I see no reference to it in the manual...

Thanx

Not in manual, since the PRO-96 can't track LTR system. Most questions will be found by reading the manual instead of asking the questions on the forum.

True the 96 will not track an LTR system but you can monitor some traffic by monitoring the home freq.

With the poorly written RS manuals that seem to leave out info on many features included. One needs to resort to asking on the forums, to be steered in the right direction.

I think that is what they are here for.

You can monitor the system in conventional FM mode unless they assign multiple groups to the same frequency(home repeater). Here Dispatch is on one, Car 1 is on one. Thats easy to monitor in conventional. Other repeaters here have more than one talkgroup on them. The multiple talkgroups aren't the hot ones anyway. We're not busy enough that radios ever go off the home repeater here. LTR here acts almost like PL.

I agree the manual is pretty poorly written. You really have to read and read the manual. When some one asks a question on this forum it is not cool to tell some to read the manual. The guy probably has been reading the manual and is asking a simple question. He does not need a rude comment like that. He is simply asking for a quick answer. Nothing more. We are all learning here.

Yeah, it's rude people like Hill that make people not want to post. If you're going to be rude about it let someone else post before you do.

I wouldn't have found this site Easier to Read Pro-97 ...Which helped me with my Pro-96 :)
Yes, someone did a nice job on that site. I use it for quick reference.
