• 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:

Programming the BD796D

I have noticed looking at program files that I have down loaded form the internet, for the BD796D that the talk group ID's are 6 digits long and have zeros as the first numbers even through some are listed only as 3 digits and have no zeros in them. Is there a reason for this and is it necessary?

When you read back a bank on the BC796D it will pad the TG to 6 digits, by putting in leading 0's.
