Talkgroups and control channel problems?

I have all the control channels, talkgroups and stuff programmed in, but when i scan, it picks up ALL the talkgroups and not just the ones I have programmed. I want just the ones i have programmed. Am i programming it wrong? I am using the win96 software. How can i lock out the other talkgroups if thats the problem. again, i want JUST the ones i have programmed. thanks

No, you are not programming it wrong. The reason it is picking up all the active talkgroups is because the bank is "open". Hit manual like you are going to program a frequency in. Go to the particular bank in question and hit the function , 5. The display should say bank closed. This will "close" the bank and only allow the talkgroups you have programmed thru. To "open" the bank back up to recieve all frequencies do the same thing again. Function, 5. If you have any other questions email me at josephnshelby@aol.com and I will be glad to help.

My maycom scanner is stopping on a frequency,scans etc but no talking.?


Scanning may stop on channels with a carrier but no modulation (annoying) or channels where access is controlled by a code or channels arranged in talkgroups.

Hi, I am trying to program P-25 systems on my uniden bcd396xt scanner, but I cannot find the tgids to enter into the scanner.Can anyone help?


You should only have to program the CC (control channel) frequencies for P-25 systems. You should be able to pick up all talkgroups. Then you could I.D. and program only the talkgroups you want to hear.

How to tune in Channel 60 in a Sony Triniton CRT?


assuming that you can "pick up" channel 60..and that the signal is strong enuff...that is part one..make sure you have a good antenna connection and that the antenna is positioned for maximum pick up, then do the scan mode on the tv via the remote control. it will re scan the channels and if the signal from channel 60 is being picked up strong enough, it will program the channel into your set automatically.

Run channel auto scan


The auto scan feature scans the various channel frequencies looking for a signal. Weak signals may be picked up on one scan and missed on the next. Check your antenna or add a antenna power booster and try again.

I think you are confusing the channel on the tv and the channel of the cable company that is not something that you can pick up with the scan tv, scan tv is good for picking up local channel meaning air channel that we get with a antenna only not the cable chanel

800 MHz frequency Mode problem


You have to program it TRUNKING mode when you enter the control channel frequencies. It is decoding okay as the MO shows motorola control channel and +DG means digital decoded and an OPEN group. You need to press the 'trunk' button everytime a talkgroup comes up that you want it to remember for future 'closed' group (-DG) talk groups. I suggest you go to 'RadioReference DOT com" and there are many forums there for your radio, as well as one or two YAHOO GROUPS specifically for your scanner. 73's

I have programmed my pro164 scanner using win97 software and the pc patch cable. i have frequencies programmed to channels onto bank 0. i also programmed the desired talkgroups onto bank 0. problem is when...


you will have to buy the Radio Shack USB cable 20-047 and install
the driver for it and then I downloaded a program named
"Win97" from the www.starrsoft.com website as listed
on page 21 of the Pro-164 manual. The cable costs
$34.99 and with tax you are looking at about $37.88.

The "Win97" software must be registered for it to work
after a 30-day free trial period. That's approx $25.00.

This is the ONLY WAY to go !! You put in everything
on the software GUI and then upload it to the PRO-164.
Works like a champ .
but if you have tried doing this.i advise do it again.again run the program by connecting the cable again.if you have not tried it then do it again. if still the same problem.then it might be the problem with the scanner.get it rechecked from radio shack. there are many many users facing this same problem this particular model of radioshack scanner and other model in which this same problem occurs is pro-197. get it checked with radio shack.tech. This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Bleed over to other channels


When you make an announcement, It wil overide other normal traffic, Announcements take priority. Assuming you are useing a 6809 controller. Look at the announcement talkgroup, with your RSS or use CAS to look at the 6809.
Good Luck., Bill

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.
