Recommendations for Organizing Systems and Groups
I have finally decided to sit down and update my scanner with agencies that I would like to listen to. I have a Uniden BCD396T and am using the UASD software. The issue I am running into is the mix of conventional and StarCom systems. For example, I work in Oak Brook and would like to listen to their PD, but live in McHenry. McHenry County is encrypted, but I can still listen to the local PD and Fire. But, I am at a loss for a convenient and easy to organize my systems so I can easily manage and turn off certain systems when I am in a different location. I have assigned the systems with quick keys, but not the groups. Right now I have:
IL Dupage Starcom
IL Dupage Conv.
IL Lake Conv.
IL McH Conv.
IL McH Starcom
Within these systems I have various groups for example, in the Dupage system, I have four groups(local PD’s), but have now found some conventional frequencies that I would like to add, so it looks like I need to make a new group and break it out like I did McHenry? I am just looking to see how others do this to try and simplify things.
Thank you very much for the assistance.
