• 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:

T4Win is probably not the best choice since it hasn't been developed in a while - UniTrunker is a better bet.

Did you put a discriminator tap in the 2051? Because of the reshaping done in the audio amp stages, you cannot just feed speaker or headphone audio to trunking utilities like UniTrunker. A discriminator tap is required. 73s Mike

even UniTrunker requires disciminator tap ?
what about a data slicer will that do?

Thanks.

You will definitely need a discriminator tapped radio. Unitrunker can support a data slicer but it is (a) very experimental and (b) only works on 2K and XP. I can't remember if T4Win was given that capability or not. Most folks use a direct sound input.

Someone just needs to shine flashlight on the main circuitboard and locate the FM IF chip.

I'm not sure if I found the right spot..

and Also did a quick test with universal trunker and I also attached a pictures of the result.



Does it look like I found the Discriminator tap of the Pro-2051 ?

Likely so. Are you able to get 100% decode on any area signals?

Also, with the tap in use - does the speaker audio drop out or loose volume? Does the squelch still work. Sometimes adding a tap will affect these.

yes 100%

Does the squelch still work: no. it has no effect on the tap just on the scanner speaker)
and so is the volume.

(thank you for pointing it out. I thought something was not right about the squelch.)

For the 2051 I used the LND7 point for my tap. It's labeled data skip. works 100% decode with unitrunker and works fine with a data slicer too.
