I picked up a Pro 106 scanner from Radio shack today. The local Radio club helps manage a program that each RS has so they can clone your radio to contain all the local info.

I just don't seem to understand how to manually pick a freq to listen to. I choose man type in freq and it says paused with no sound.

Your county is on the BRICS system now. It is all digital now and I see some encrytped things also that you won't be able to hear but plenty of other stuff thats not encrypted. So basically you have to set your scanner to P25 auto, put in the control channels, and program in the talkgroups you want to hear.

Any chance you would be willing to share your file? I am having issues with my settings for the Butler County Brics setup?
