Post Sioux city starcomm prog issues

I hope someone can help me. I am trying to program my BC785D for Starcomm and am having trouble finding the control channel. I programmed it using what is here on RadioReference but still no success. I can hear traffic occasionally so I know my dig card is working. Can anyone help???

Thumbs up

I'm not sure if this helps, but if your control channels are on 700mhz. then your 785D may not work but I could be wrong. Will your 785 tune the 700mhz. cc's?
Maybe someone else who has a 785D is reading this.

He is talking about this system:

Siouxland Tri-State Area Radio Communications (STARCOMM) Trunking System, Sioux City, Multi-State - Scanner Frequencies

I don't think the 785D will do 9600 baud control channel, only 3600 baud control channel. Since it is all digital (no analog), it will have a 9600 baud control channel.

Your best bet would be to enter the frequencies in conventionally and lock out the control channel.

Right now the control channel is 859.7625. It's a straightforward P25 system. I'm listening on a 296D and it's tracking fine other than sometimes sketchy P25 decode.
