    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 purchased the PRO-96 and I am very confused on how to program it to listen to Austin/Travis Co and Williamson Co Fire and EMS. I have been to the Frequency Database on RR and I have downloaded Win 96. I need the specific frequencies that are used for Fire and EMS, how to program them into the scanner, and how to scan the different talk groups. I have listened to Scan CenTex for a little over a year and I would like to have the same talkgroups on my scanner.

Any advice or instruction would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Both of those are trunked radio systems. In a trunked system there are no frequencies set aside for fire or police, everyone shares the frequencies. What is different is the talk groups. If you only want to listen to fire and ems then only download those talk groups, or you can download them all and lock out police. I would put austin/travis in one bank and williamson in another.
