Trunking is a system where many radios use a few channels, the radios scan through the channels and find one that is not busy, then when you key up the transmitter it sends out a signal to the other radios in the group and switches them to the same frequency. There are at least 3 different trunkings systems that i know of, maybe more by now, but this is a basic explanation of how they work.

Cannot recieve new Motorla trunking Feq after system upgrade on my Pro 95 scanner. What can I do?? Thanks, Ron


Hi.

They probably went into a digital trunking system. Your Pro-95 will only handle Edacs, Type I and II standard trunking.

Or they changed the trunking voice frequencies and the data (control channel) frequency.

Which system are you trying to listen to? Which city area ??

Can you listen to a police frequency if it's trunked with this scanner? Uniden BC72xlt


You can listen to trunked police bands UNLESS: 1 they went Digital and your scanner is Analog. 2. They use an encrypted control frequency. 3. It is not against the law in your area. 4. you have a Trunked scanner. Following trunked frequencies requires a trunked scanner which is very different from regular everyday scanners. If the photo of your scanner is accurate then it appears you have Digital capability so that won't be a problem. You can go to Radio shack and purchase a book on Public Safety frequencies and Control Frequencies which will give you the proper frequency range but they will tell you nothing about Encryption on any Frequency. If you can not find a Control Frequency then you will not be able to track the hoping that is used in a trunked system. By the way, a Regular scanner runs about $50 where as a Trunked Scanner runs $150 to $200.

How do I program it for triple truncking?


There is no such thing as "dual trunking" or "triple trunking." Such terms are used by manufacturers to indicate the number of trunking systems that a scanner is capable of monitoring. The PRO-95 is designated as a Dual Trunk-Tracking scanner because it is capable of monitoring both Motorola and EDACS systems. Programming a trunking system in to a scanner is a detailed process that requires a bit of research.

For details on active trunking systems in your area, and a lot of other useful scanning information, visit:

www.RadioReference.com

Once you have the system information you can follow the programming steps outlined in your scanner's operating instructions. If you don't already have the manual, you can download and print it here:

Unfortuantly the pro-82 is not a trunked scanner, it's only a vhf/uhf scanner and cannot pickup trunked systems. You need to replace it with atleast a pro-95 to pick up trunked systems. If you need your manual for the pro-82 follow this link.

BC245XLT trunk tracker II


Hello majorhart, I have never owned this model scanner, but by looking at the owners manual I see there is a keylock, which locks the keypad.
If you need a copy of the manual, go here and download.

Programing trunk system


the only way I know to program trunking would be manually one freq at a time unless you can find the software and cable to the unit.

Edacs frequencies


Are you getting talkgroup ID's? If not, you're probably monitoring the EDACS system in conventional mode rather than trunking. When the scanner hears those beeps, it's supposed to go back to monitoring the control channel if you're in either trunking mode (search or scan). This also happens if the CC isn't coming in very well. If you're not in trunking mode, read the manual to find out more about programming and monitoring trunked systems. If you are in trunking mode and receiving ID's, the unit is probably malfunctioning.
