    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:

Hello,

I recently purchased a RadioShack Pro-2055 for my own personal hobby. Seems to be working fine, but I'm having trouble with programming these talk groups. I have no clue how to do this.

I would really appriciate it if someone could explain how I go about getting these on my scanner. I've been to the easier directions website, and still I'm lost. Maybe walk me through it step by step?


Thank you.

Assuming you have the frequencies already entered, in manual mode, navigate to the bank you have the frequencies stored in, and press FUNC + TRUNK. This is where you enter the talkgroups using the keypad (always enter the number in the "DEC" column in the database). Then you can assign a text tag if you want by pressing TEXT. To add any additional talkgroups, press the /\ button, and repeat the process.

Hope this helps, :)

PS- Also make sure the bank and each frequency is set to MOT (motorola) mode, see the manual.

Thanks for the help Kc. I got the MOT codes put in but now another problem has surfaced.
When scanning, the scanner will not stop on the MOT freqs, but when I manually go to them they are quiet active. Do you know what the problem might be? Sorry to sound like such a noob, this is really frustrating.

Another question. Do I need program all the MOT codes into every frequency that was supplied or just the first one? Thanks again...

Motorola requires only the red control channels entered.

Storing known trunked frequencies
1. Press MANual, Press three digits to get the bank and channel number desired then Press
MANual again. (Upper left should read Mxxx for your bank and channel number)
2. Press PGM, (upper left should change from M to P)
3. Press TRUNK
4. Press MODE until Motorola is Displayed
5. Press PGM
6. Enter the frequency
7. Press ENTer
8. Repeat steps 5 through 8 until all frequencies are entered in selected bank.

Note: After entering the each freq in step 6 you can press TEXT and enter a 16 character tag for each freq. then step 7.
