• 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.

2052 has it's quirks. That's why I rely on the old Pro-95's to decipher trunked systems. I don't live in Charleston County, and only drive though it for roughly 20 minutes 2 ways every day, so I primarily monitor VHF FM and AM enroute...One of these days I'll pull the thing out of the truck and program the Hanahan PD in it for sh##s and giggles while passing their traffic stops. My total "trunk listening time" every day is less than or equal to an hour so it's not that high a priority for me in particular.

However, I've found that PC interface with the 2052 is a definite must, and I rely on it to record any 2 way comms that I personally make. I use ScanPro to set it up and a generic scanner recorder to log it all. Works well for me, but I have a "unique" application to say the least.

Assuming you printed the Programming Shortcut provided in Mike's Wiki link, what steps are giving you problems.
i just don't know how to program SCHP in order to get them all and for them to show up as a ID.
If your intentions are to program Palmetto 800, then each site programmed must be in a seperate bank.

Programming for Trunking modified for the Palmetto and the later Pro-2052 scanner. You will need to lockout all digital ID's also.

1. Press and hold TRUNK until you hear two beeps, all 20 bank numbers should be flashing.
2. Press the number for the bank you want to program, E2-800 should be on the display and your bank number should be upper left
3. Palmetto is Motorola type II, E2-800 - go to step 4
4. Press E, Channel 1 of your bank should appear
5. Using the numbered keys enter the first frequency
6. Press E
7. Press ^ button, and enter the second frequency
8. Press E
9. Repeat step 7 and 8 until all frequencies are entered for Palmetto selected site
10. When completed press TRUNK, the scanner should go into ID SEARCH Mode
You should now see ----- on the display until the scanner stops on a conversation, then a 2 to 5 digit ID will be displayed.

Programming ID’s
1. Press SCAN
2. Press ^ button (----- should be on the display)
3. Navigate up or down until the number 1 appears on the left and a smaller number 1 is in upper left
4. Using the numbered keys, enter the 2 to 5 digits ID for E2-800
5. Press E
6. Press ^ button (the number on left will increase with each entry)
7. Repeat steps 4 through 6 until all known ID’s are entered Note: after programming 10 ID’s, the number 1 appears on the left again and a number 2 appears in the upper left, this is a new ID Scan List. The scanner has 5 of these Scan Lists (sub-banks) for
a total of 50 ID’s per scan bank.

When completed, press SCAN.
