    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.

For that system in the database, the control channels are in RED. Don't worry about the other frequencies, all you need to do is program the control channels to receive the system. But, if you understand how to enter frequencies into channels (in the manual), you need to make sure that you set the bank to MOT (motorola) mode, and every control channel to MOT mode (the manual tells you). BTW, since this is a Type II system, you don't need a fleet map, those are only for Type I systems, and there are only a handful of those around anymore.

All right, looking at the system, say you want to listen to "ADM Trucking". You would go to the bank where you have the trunking system stored in memory, and press FUNC + TRUNK. Then, enter "880", and press ENT. Never enter the numbers under HEX, you don't need those, only enter the DEC number. Then, by pressing TEXT, you can enter a text tag if you wish for that talkgroup. Then repeat this process for each talkgroup you want to program.

I hope this helps a little! :) And yes, it's a hard hobby to start, but when you have everything programmed, you can just listen to all the cop chases, and big fires, and not worry a bit about programming.
