• 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 have a pro-91 scanner and I want to add a discriminator tap to run trunker for an edacs system. My question is can a pro-91 be used with trunker on an edacs system even though the scanner cannot track an edacs system? Also if anybody is familiar Ohio MARCS can the pro-91 be used with trunker to follow that system?

The PRO-91 is a non-digital scanner, and cannot monitor Ohio MARCS which is an APCO-25 digital system.

I know the pro-91 cannot monitor digital and EDACS systems. I was just wanting to know if the pro-91 can be used on an EDACS system and Ohio MARCS with trunker.

Any radio - including non-trunking scanners - that has an FM discriminator and can be tuned to a trunking control channel - can be tapped for discriminator audio for use with programs like Trunker. The short answer to your questions is "Yes".
