• 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 have a BCD396t and am trying to program the CSPD, CSFD and EPSO. The database says the system type is "Motrola Type 11 Smartzone" with "Analog and APCO-25 Common Air Interface". I have tryed several system types with no luck. Also, it lists different sites and frequencies, how do I know which to program, or do I program them all? The Talkgroup IDs have "Hex" and "Mode"...Do I have to program them in somewhere and if so where???

I was so excited to get the scanner but and now so frustrated because I can not pick anything up or figure out how to program this thing. Any help would be greatly appreceiated.

All fire, EMS, and law enforcement traffic is digital. The system was built out from the original city utilities analog system, and I believe that there are still some utilities TG's that are analog.
As for which refrequencies to program, you should only need the ones identified as control channels or alternate control channels.
Unfortunately, I can't help you with programming your radio, since I don't have that model.

Hi

In the 996T manual all they call it is P25 Threshold adjust mode. If I can find my 296 manual I'll look it up in there. Hope this helps. I downloaded the 396 software I'll see if I can help that away. Mark

I believe your scanner is the same as the radio shack pro96. Check with a local store and they might be able to program it for you. I just picked up a PRO-96 and they download all the local freqs and trunks. I need to add a few more but anyway, give that a shot.
