• 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:

Trying to program both 785D and Pro-2051 for Motorola Trunking. I got EDACS down pretty good now, first time with motorola so here goes. Checking Scanner Master and RR database, first both have different info. It looks like RR has more up to date info..some seemed to have changed from Type I to type II. The main question is when I get to fleet maps. Both sources show S4,S4, etc. I'm using scant lite to program both, is S4 the size of the block? And I take it they list first as block 1, etc? Am I correct ?
RR has it down as Type B0
MOT D
TT S4
does this mean: BO (block 0) is S4 (size 4) ? If it does what is MOT D mean?

Just for reference I'm starting with NYC EMS.
Help !
Thanks in advance.

If it is a type II system there is no need for a fleet map..Can you hear the control channel when you programmed the frequencies.there should of been one channel that has the continuos Wrraaappp sound..

Haven't been in range yet to try it...but if I get an understanding of what is written in the book or RR database...how to use that info is the problem.
