• 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:

Nice little set up, I have a question on those Motorola Radios, If you where to press the little orange circluar button does that sound the emergency tone or what does it do. I've heard stuff about it but I'am clueless what it does and just interested on what it does.

Depends on the system the dradio is programmed on and also how the radio is programmed.

On our system we've set the button to be emergency for law enforcement units and scan on/off for non law enforcement units.

Is the radio programmed on a system?

Yes, a couple radios are programmed on a "System". 1 not pictured is an 800mhz moto portable.

The orange button just activates scan, I really don't need it to beep since I'm not doing something that'd require that feature, although it will. On the XTS it switches between zones.

On the bottom left are 2 base/dispatcher type mics, and the bottom radio is a Spectra, to the right a UHF visar.

Based on that reply, I would recommend you ABSOLUTELY read this thread in its entirety. Believe me, for a while I thought I also wanted to get into commercial programming, but when I read about the legal issues involved, I got out of it, FAST. :eek::mad::(:evil::roll:

Give it up already and quit giving people a hard time. :evil:

The deifinition of system varies, of course. 'System' is NOT ALWAYS DEFINED AS A TRUNKING RADIO SYSTEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There are some ham repeater SYSTEMS in his area that require certain MDC codes to even key them up.... heh, an MDC system was configured.

I don't know your background, I don't know why you're always talking about trunked radio systems and the "how-to's" of programming, and the legalities behind it all the time. It's either because you are ignorant, or because you're just being a pain in the ass but I honestly wish you'd quit beating the dead horse and mind your own business in regards to the matter. I didn't hijack your radio picture thread and make accusations as you have repeatedly with mine.

OOOh the evils of trunking, oooh... the evil of the word "system" alone to some people *sigh*, but I'm sure Ray wrote that just to spin your wheels. :p

And contrary to JG's popular belief, there are some of us that have privately-owned 800 MHz trunked radios that are LEGALLY programmed on "systems" that we are AUTHORIZED to use.

Moral: Stop blithering about legalities. If the person is dumb enough to do something illegal, let them get caught on their own.

Exactly. Thank you josh.

If I decide to program my radios on Systems, wether it be VHF, UHF, or 800MHz, let that be my problem.

I'm getting tired of seeing people (you know who you are) playing "I'm Mr. Trunking Expert" like they own the forums telling people why or that they can't have 800 stuff or making a big deal of it. And yes, I have rights on a VHF and UHF Motorola System that requires ID's. Also 800/900MHz.

Please let people deal with their own radios and what they want to monitor or talk on.
