• 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've always been great with conventional type systems, however, this is my first time with a trunked system. I have a Pro-97, and I have tried programming the proper frequencies, more than once, to no avail. I was wandering if I could get pointed in the right direction, as far as proper instruction, or if someone could post a win-97 file with Hickory TRS already done. Thanks in advance:-D

The key to programming EDACS systems is making sure you enter the frequencies in the right channels, in the right order.

For Hickory:

1. 856.9375
2. 857.9375
3. 858.9375
4. 859.9375
5. 860.9375

Whatever bank you put these in, make sure you start with channel 01 not 00!

Don't currently have any RadioShack scanners so I can't walk you through it step by step.

Check your manual for detailed EDACS setup instructions.

Also make sure you use EDACS Wide mode not Narrow (if RS models support both).

Despite the fact that I am in Hickory every two weeks, I actually don't listen to them much.

I do have a win97 file with them programmed in though. I'll have to find it on my laptop, and I'll post it on this thread later tonight.

Neo62381,

You get Hickory EDACS working yet?
Yes sir, I have programmed them into the proper channels, using the frequencies you have provided. However, I can't find any setting for banbdwith, as you were speaking of. I have noticed, that at the end of thier transmission, you still catch a small chirp, of those beeps....Is there anything I can do about this, I feel ike Its not switching over to the next channel as quick as it could be.

Sounds like you are set.

The quick chirp is heard on Uniden scanners and actual EDACS radios as well.

If you are interested in the non-PD talkgroups, I can send them to you.

Sure.

Didn't realize RR Database included non public safety TGs.

Original EDACS database site I submitted original info to years ago did not.

Heck, you should check out the Char/Meck page. City buses to the dog catcher. I see where it's mainly useful for IDing a TG that you've found.
