Yes, the 996XT ignores encrypted talk groups. They can be logged (i.e. Pro96Com), but they can't be scanned/searched.Revisiting this old thread, recently I am hearing GCSO officers say "go to TAC-6" quite often. This may well be an encrypted TG, however curiously I never hear anything encrypted or otherwise. This is on a 996XT in ID Search and with nothing locked out. Could the 996XT be ignoring encrypted channels, or is something else going on here?
I have also heard "go to TAC-4" a few times and then heard nothing as well.
