Default Programming EDACS?

Good evening I needed help in programming EDACS. Are you suppose to put all the control channels in one zone of the radio or does one zone suppose to have one control channel. Also are you suppose to program the control channels and the voice channels together? I mean all the control channels from all the different towers on the system.

Thank you
Anthony Lee

For EDACS the channels must be programmed in logical order, both control and voice channels. Once zone for each site.

What kind of radio/scanner are you programming? It makes a big difference.

For each site you need to make a new Trunked set, and put ALL the assigned LCNs in, in correct order. If there is a skipped channel, i usually put a dummy value like 806.0000 for the TX to fill it in, otherwise it will collapse all the LCNs down when you save.

Each Site ID will have its own LCN list, so if every physical tower has a different Site ID, you need to made a new trunked set for each one.

What if there is only 1 control channel with the system and no voice channels on the system.

So it is a SCAT site?

If yes then you would just program that frequency into LCN 1.

I am not sure about a SCAT site or not. Here is a link to the system I was wondering about:Tazewell County Public Safety (TazComm) Trunking System, Pekin, Illinois - Scanner Frequencies. Thank you for helping me out. I don't know what a SCAT system is all I know is EDACS.

SCAT: Single Channel Analog Trunking. A one channel trunked system which acts as a control channel AND voice channel. It switches from control to voice mode when a radio needs to talk and switches back to control mode when no system radios are talking.

Default Programming EDACS?

How exactly are you planning to affiliate with this system since it doesn't sound like you are an authorized user. Please know that "stealing" a LID that is assigned to a unit may compromise that unit.

There is a reason that people are told to get a scanner and this kind of thing is the reason that agencies use ESK.

I didnt know that "stealing" a LID that is assigned to a unit may compromise that unit. I might not do it then thank you. I have a scanner to monitor it.
