Does the PSR-500 support EDACS talkgroup patches? This thread implies that it does, however I've not had any luck.

An example of a talkgroup patch would be ID 04-021 and 04-023 being patched as ID 15-157. It would be nice to still tune either 04-021 or -023 and be able to follow the group is it's patched with another station. Right now when monitoring 04-023 and it goes patched, you miss traffic unless putting the scanner on 15-175.

I'm guessing this might just be a Uniden thing as they automatically detect; so if there is a trick for GRE scanners that I'm missing I would love to know :) One thing for sure is the PSR-500 sets the bar high when it comes to features on a scanner. This is one AMAZING RADIO!

Jeff, I was hearing that patch traffic yesterday during the search for those escapees ok on both my 500 and 600. 15-156 came up on the wildcard and I stored it as usual. Are you saying your scanner didn't receive this on your wildcard setting??

You still get that virtual TG for the patch but if you monitor any of the TG's aliased to it you won't hear anything. The Uniden will see the CC data and know to tune that virtual TG when you park on to the TG's patched.
