Since you didn't get an answer in the Radio Shack scanner forum........Here it is: YES you have to program the control channels and tgid's in all banks that you want to monitor the particular tg. So, warm your fingers up and get key pushing. Oh, and YES you have to have the banks in CLOSED mode so as not to hear other tgid's that will appear in the OPEN mode.Is there a way to make my pro96 recognize in bank 2 a talkgroup I programmed in bank 1, or do I have to program all the same crap 3 different times for the 3 sites that pick up these specific talkgroups? HMMMMMMMMM????????
