    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:

What is LTR Passport? How do I program it into my BCD396T? Do I just program all the frequencies in numerical order like EDACS?

If it's passport, about all you can do is scan it conventionally, no scanner will trunk track it AFAIK.
One thing I have noticed is that even "Normal" LTR can be hard to figure out because there is no easy way to see how they configure an LTR as far as LCN's and Frequencies.
A lot of times ther frequencies don't even list to who is using them.

How does each frequencies' LTR controller communicate with the other ones?
Of course if they are at the same site it's easy, but do they ever have a system with more than one transmitting site? If so, I assume microwave, ISDN or fiber could be used?

Another question. Are different brands of LTR trunking repeaters compatible with each other as far as data communication between each other?
