• 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:

Sorry, none of the Radioshack scanners can recieve I-calls.
Except Pro-92 V1.

If you want to hear I-Calls on a 96, find out what freqs are used and program them (and only them) in a bank as FM and always scan that bank. Trunker will determine what freqs are used and some systems (my city) only use one freq.

Obviously a duty CC can't be used for I-Call, so if trunker does list a rotating CC, then you will need to lock it out in that bank when it has duty. If you don't have a way to find out which freqs are used, program all system freqs (including CC's) in a bank as FM and toggle the CC off/on each day.

Well the 92 version 1.0 "sort-of" gets them. If the I-Call radioID is divisible by 16 it showed up as an active talkgroup or 16 because of the nature of the Sub-audible Tracking method.

Kinda cool although to catch them, but it did not always produce both side of the comm. Just another bug.. er.. feature.

Using the conventional method on the 96/2096 is just too antiquated, IMHO. +;-)

Using the conventional method you would only know by the conversation because you wouldn't have a Talkgroup or RadioID to reference. As the comm changes between units you conventionally programed radio would resume scanning the voice frequencies and possibly lock onto a different talkgroup comm in process. You have no control except to keep pressing the scan button unless the I-Call is the only traffic on the system at the time. It's so much more easier just using a TrunkTracker with I-Call.
