• 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 need some help and advice. When I program lets say Denver PD. Do I just put in the CC or do I need the CC plus the alt freq?

Thanks in advance for the help.

As far as I know, in a scanner just put in all the 24 logical (recieve) channels for Denver and when you are in trunk mode, the radio will do the rest, no need to lock-out any thing except talkgroups you dont want to hear. In a Ma/Com radio you may get a display ( CC-scan ) out of range, hope that helps.

Ur welcome !

In that link, you will also find the most commonly used talkgroups for Denver Police including Metro-Net talkgroups for communicating with other agencies using the Network First system.

My 785 D is acting up

My BC785D recently started doing something odd when scanning Denver.

It now is working like a conventional scanner, and will stop on a conversation, but then gives that series of "anti-scanner" beeps before resuming scanning.

I'm puzzled, as I've gone back in several times with the software ( I use BlackBag software) reviewed the frequency and updated the talkgroups.

Any ideas where I've gone wrong?

Keep an eye on your signal strength meter - if you're signal is low, your scanner might not be getting all of the data signal.
