• 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 am looking to go to Oregon in a month or so .. and would like to monitor the Portland public service system (Motorola trunked system I think) on my Uniden 246T or 780XLT. I was wondering if anyone would have a file they could post so I wouldnt have to enter it all manually ..

Would prefer Butel software format as I don't like the Uniden software much, but even that would beat entering it in manually.

Any help would be appreciated.

You need only the Control Channels. Go to this site. They are the 4 freqs. in red
under SITE 1: Simulcast. You don't need any of the Intellirepeater sites.

Then scroll down and pick out the Talk Groups you want.
If you tell me your exact interest, I can tell you which TGs to use.

You can do the same for Washington County, Clackamas County and Clark County, WA.

I am only interested in the police in Portland and well anything else that may be exciting to listen to when I am there. But if it is like where I live .. the EMS and Fire stuff would almost put you to sleep.

Thanks for your reply ...

With most modern scanners, the answer is yes. If I remember correctly, the BC780XLT was the first scanner that allowed "control channel only".

In fact, 99.9% of the time, you can monitor the City of Portland system with only one frequency: 858.7375

No problem. One of these days if I ever get around to updating my scanners, I'll be happy to dump what i've got for you. The way my time has been going lately though, it could be Christmas before that happens!
