    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 tend to keep my BCD-396T files up to date, as my travel plans are often spur of the moment. As such, I'm working on a few items that I'd like some help with.

1. Merced County TRS. It's a type-1 system. I don't remember having troubles figuring out fleetmap programming with my old Pro-92, but I'll be darned if I can figure out how to get the database info into my 396. Any tips?

2. Riverside County TRS. It looks like there are talkgroup lists for three areas, yet there are ten different sites. How do I know which talkgroups are on which sites?

Any help would be most appreciated.
