• 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 bought the Radio Shack Pro-96 scanner yesterday and it works great, I downloaded Win96 and hooked up the serial cable and got it all programmed up, HOWEVER the main reason I bought it was to listen to our Local PD... and their talkgroups I have programmed in the radio however, on the Primary Control Channel which is channel 000 for me other talkgroups pick up on that channel other than the ones I have programmed in it, is there a way I can change it to where only the talkgroups I have programmed in it are the ones it will receieve?

Thanks,
Chip

You beat me there by a minute. By the time I posted, you were alredy there.

Right now you are operating in "open mode," indicated by the + sign below the bank number. You want to operate in "closed mode." Press [FUNC][5].

A TIP: You can PGM a bank with controller and lock out ALL the regular talk groups maybe except one that you dont mind listening to. Run in open mode. Now you can catch any and all new ID's that pop up on the system. Good Luck.

Another option is to put the ones you know, but don't want to hear most of time in Disabled Sub-Banks, this also will keep them quite (both in Open & Closed modes.)
