Re: talk group id #'s

I assume you are talking about Motorola ID's. They are actually seperated by 16. The other numbers in between are used for the special conditions i.e. emergency, patched, etc.
Depending on how the system is set up, they may not all be used in order. You may see 16, 32, 160, 320, etc.

Subject: [BC246T] talk group id #'s

this is more of a general trunking question rather than a question
exclusively for the bc246t. let me first say that this is the first
trunktracker that i have owned. i have scanned for years but could
never justify spending $250 for my 4th scanner. well i finally bought
one and i am glad i waited until the bc246t. i carry it with me to
everywhere but the shower. anyway. my question. i have noticed that
talkgroup id's are separated by 32 (or another number); for example--
18300>18332>18364etc. Why do they just not go 18300>18301>18302
etc. ??? thanks in advance
