All,

Thought everyone would be interested in the new GRE 500/600 firmware that was released today. This firmware follows DTRS patches!

I've been waiting for a long long time for a scanner to do this.

The update works flawlessly on the State DTRS system. Now I can listen to a single troop without running Pro96Comm to figure out if it is patched or not. Troop 6A can now be heard every time I manually tune to to the 6A talkgroup. My PSR500 even shows "patch" on the display when a talkgroup is being patched. Thanks GRE!

So basically, when you hear, for example, 3C and 3A on a single TG, they are patched? So in that scenario, I would be able to only listen to 3c?

Yes for example if you log Lookout Mtn with Pro96Com especially in the late nights you will notice at least 4 or 5 CSP TG's from NE and Eastern Colo especially are patched to thereby reduce number of dispatchers needed in Lakewood.

Also an example the Poudre and Weld communications centers patch together their EMS and Fire talkgroups when they dispatch calls that involve both. Before, you had to scan both to hear all the calls, now you can just scan or even stay on the one talkgroup in manual mode.

As they say it's about time!

For those of us with the Radioshack PRO-106 & PRO-197 we have to wait for the firmware update release from radioshack.

Thanks for the link Luke. Does anyone know if you have some missing updates if you can just do the most recent and it will do the others or do you have to do each of them?
