Default programming P25 correct (Miami Dade)

I am trying to get my bcd396xt programmed correct to monitor Miami Dade´s new P25 Harris system - I have set it up as a p25 system - my question - is it std. trunk where you put in all the frequencies - or only the control channels? and what about base/offset?
I hope someone here can tell me how to set this correct up
Also - I have found another control ch in N. Miami Beach area - 854.5125 also with sid 0065h01

Deriving my comment on this system: http://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?sid=7073
You should only use the Control Channels and don't worry about the base/offset, the data stream from the control channel will contain that information and the 396XT will store those automatically.

On a local P25 system, the only thing I entered was the control channels and the scanner picked up and stored them. But, I have a friend who has a Radio Shack Pro 106 (aka GRE 500) and he had to manually enter his offsets. That scanner didn't automatically store them, as well as anyone else around who had that scanner.

Thanks - it works great - the sound is much better in a true p25 system - than it is in systems in mixed mode like hollywood or Broward uses.

The signal is not too stong.
The distortion is how it sounds on some channels.
Hopefully they will be adjusting that.

Yes I think you are right... I heard some testing on 700 mhz - that system is 100% clear and ok
