Russell said:I noticed Sherman PD's P25 listing has a PL of 173.8 - will the Pro96 decode it that way?
The tone listed (173.8) is for analog not digital. Unless they are using both analog and digital modes, this is a typo. Digital transmissions utilize Network Access Codes instead of PL/DCS used with analog. NAC codes are 3 digit (non-decimal) alpha-numeric (0-9, A-F)and comprise 4096 possible combinations!
If you know there is digital traffic on a particular frequency, set the mode on the Pro 96 to "FM" and it will demodulate the digital signal. The downside to this is it will also unmute on any analog transmission on the same frequency. Unfortunately, with the current batch of scanners, there is no way to specify "digital only" reception.
Yes, I've already run into that. It would be nice to just be able to set it to DG only. I don't need to decode the NAC right now.Wayne said:Unfortunately, with the current batch of scanners, there is no way to specify "digital only" reception.
