Didn't know where to put this....here or under the trunking forum.

I don't know whether it's the medicine for the Flu I'm taking or I'm getting more senile in my young age. Pro'lly both. :-( Can someone please explain what "Subbanks" are? I just got a Pro-97 yesterday and am using Win97 to program it. I looked in the Pro-97 manual, online, etc.. and can't find an explanation for what Subbanks are. Thanks.

Sub-banks are for Trunked Talkgroups. You can turn sub-banks on an off during Trunked Scanning.

Dave, I know they're for trunked systems. Methinks they are just banks of IDs, allowing the user to categorize and scan individual sets of IDs?

Yes, you can set them up that way.

From the manual:

talk group IDs
There are 10 talk group ID banks and each ID bank has 5 subbanks.
Each sub-bank has 30 ID locations. You can program
up to 150 talk group IDs in each bank, so you can program up
to 1,500 talk group IDs in 10 banks. When the scanner stops
on a transmission in the Motorola, EDACS, or LTR mode, it
checks to see if the ID has been stored. In the closed mode,
the scanner only stops on the transmission and displays its
text tag if you have stored and not locked out the ID. In the
open mode, the scanner always stops on a transmission, but
it displays the ID’s text tag if you have stored the ID.
