• 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 am using trial psredit500 & arc500 software to decide which I will use with my gre psr-500. When connected to rr.com to import a trunked system what import option should be used *primary cc's only* *primary & alts only* *all site freqs* ? should I use *all site freqs* so everything will be covered or will this slow scanning down?

As a general rule, I use "all frequencies" if they will fit into the TSYS definition to avoid missing control channels which aren't flagged in the RR database. Otherwise, I'll use "primary CCs and Alt" followed by "primary CCs only".

I don't think it slows anything but the initial CC acquisition to have all the frequencies in the TSYS. I know having all frequencies present saved me a couple of times on my Pro-96 because the database hasn't always had accurate CC information on some systems.

I'll be importing them all then. Thanks for your answer Mark.
