• 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:

When programming a scanner, you never want to have more than one trunked frequency in the same bank as another. Conventional freqs are okay.

However, when you have a system like Delaware, where there are multiple sites, each with its own group of freqs, do you have to program them separtely, or can you put all of the sites in the same bank?

David,

Before I migrated to 396/996 radios (and got away from having a very limited number of banks), I allowed non-competing trunked systems to share banks. For example, NewCastle Co DE 800 & Sussex DE 800 shared one bank. I never found myself in a location where the radio would copy BOTH the CC for NCC & Sussex....so it worked fine. BTW, I simply use the main sites' frequencies for each county (001, 002, 003)....haven't found it necessary to program any of the other sites in. ID scan lists 1-5 were NCC and 6-10 Sussex, in my case.

I must say, the new Unidens have been a breath of fresh air in this respect. No more cramming systems into limited space.
