• 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:

I admit up front that I just got this scanner, trying to copy my work frequency at home. got the frequency, but the guy warned me every few seconds I'd get that signal burst - or click - that I never hear with the radios at work, but hear it at home. Just got a RS digital scanner.... A setting I can change, perhaps, that will eliminate this doggone click??

What frequency are you trying to monitor and in what city? You could see if that frequency is already in the RadioReference database under the county where you work. From your username, I assume you are in W. Virginia.

Try this page: http://www.radioreference.com/modules.php?name=RR&stid=54

See if the frequency is listed under any of the trunked systems in your county.

It may be an LTR Passport system, but that is only a guess (since you said the clicks happen every three seconds). If so, no scanner can properly track an LTR Passport system. Regular LTR systems can be tracked by some scanners, but not by the Pro96.

Three Second Burst -

From the paperwork in office files, it reflects the frequency as UHF LTR. Guess that means, I'll lock that one out...

tks for the advice.

It's a Standard LTR system, so you can program it into a scanner. However, the RadioShack PRO-96/2096 does not support LTR TrunkTracking, so you will have to use another scanner (PRO-97/2055).
