Just some help on ECPD please

Postby scanner_gal » Thu Jun 01, 2006 8:18 pm

OK, I have a PRO-96 and I can't seem to input the talkgroups for ECPD TAC'S , INVESTIGATIONS etc.. On Bank 9 I put the south zone control channel in and I get ECPD's dispatch and car response, plus other agencies.. But I want to enter in like 36288 36304 etc etc.. Just got tired of the dudes on pro-96 yahoo groups hitting on me.. This can't be that hard, or is it?.. I did register Win96 software if you all think that's helpful

thanks

Let me get this straight. You can hear ELCPD Dispatcher and some other cities dispatch? But not ELCPD Tacs and Investigations?

When you say you can't input them, what happens exactly?

No, it isn't that hard. Really should be simple. If you have the main dispatch in, then any other things are just as easy. Are you just programming in the problematic talkgroups into an empty memory location just as you did for ELCPD Dispatch?

BTW, if you want the "dudes" to stop hitting on you, change your user ID to Larry or Bob or something that doesn't contain the word "gal". In the "scanner nerd industry", gals are rare, so they attract a lot of attention...

It seems that the scanner is in the open mode. It is searching everything on the RCS south. Try the closed mode and program the talkgroups you wish to hear in that bank. You can toggle between the open and closed mode on the keypad by pressing FUNC 5 on the keypad or by using the software

BTW, ECPD Investigations TG is encrypted, so you won't be able to hear anything anyway.

I have heard radio traffic in the clear on the investigations talkgroup. :)

I admit I was trying to use it to my advantage.. Actually, most of the people just said to buy Win96, which I did, but that's another story :roll:

I think in my very own un-informed opinon that is where I'm at.. In my open Bank 9 I put in the control channel for RCS South.. So I get, besides, ECPD dispatch, Coronado PD, Animal Control, UCSD ALS, Lifeguards.. etc, etc What I want to do, is delete everything and just put in the TG ID's for El Cajon. Or do I need to go back to school to understand trunking and the such? In bank 9 I want scandiego's list: (and nothing else)

thanks everybody! (BTW, thanks for access, Mr Admin! )
