• 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 just got a Pro-96. I loaded all the freqs for Quarry Hill/ Eielson. I loaded the talk group id for the SP's but it does not seem to be trunking. I hear all sorts of conversations but it does not show a talk group id. I eventually will get everything in there, but i was just trying for the SP's to get it all figured out.

Are you using software to program or the cheat sheet and tryin to do it by hand? If you are not using software, Check out Don Starrs Starsoft Win 96 and save your fingers you can download it and try it for free for 30 days and If you like it you can purchase it for $30. with the Win 96 you can download from the RR database and it makes it very easy. Good luck and Good Scannin.....hoser147

For the state system you must enter the six custom tables. The only way to do that is with Win96 software as there is no access to most of the tables from the radio keypad. The program is fully functional for a 30 day evaluation period so you can download it and try it out immediately. www.starrsoft.com

They tell the scanner how to match up the channel grants on the control channel to a frequency.
