• 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:

need help with programming pro 97 with trunking Alameda County in Ca.

okay...i was able to program a bearcat scanner with alameda county freq.s trunking system. Recently purchased a Pro 97...figured out how to enter freq.s. I got Oakland PD going...SF PD going. But for the life of me, I can not figure out what I am doing wrong with Alameda County. I entered all of the frequencies into the scanner. Scanning in mot mode. Can not follow a conversation. It will stop on a call...show the id number. If i try to hold the call...it just say no id number....and call goes away...waaaaah... anyone with some help would be appreciated...thanks...brian
