    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:

Pinellas County Florida has a Motorola Type II SmartZone system. I have not had any luck programming the BCD396T to receive this system and would appreciate assistance.

I have programmed the scanner as follows: System Type: Motorola 800 MhHz Type 2 Standard; ID: Search; P25 Threshold: Auto; Control Channel Only; Ignore Status Bit and Modulation; Auto. I have programmed the control channels: 857.2375 858.2375 859.2375 860.2375 860.7125 866.1625 866.300. I have also input the TGID Names and ID #’s.

I have also loaded all of the individual frequencies in another data base except did not check Control Channel Only. I have also input the TGID Names and ID #’s.

Has anyone had any luck programming a BCD396T for a Motorola Type II SmartZone particularly in Pinellas County Florida.?

I will appreciate your comments and suggestions.
