I have the entire state frequency database programmed into my HP-1.

As a workaround what I did was, I copied all the KSICS frequency on to on an excel spreadsheet and then removed the duplicates frequency from it, then I added back into the Sentinel Software and uploaded it to my HP-1. Please note, I update the frequencies as new information is upload in the RR Database.

Then I set the Dispatch talk groups I want to listen to as I'm traveling thru out the state, it works great going from Central KS to the Kansas City area no matter whether I'm on I-35 or I-70, or any of the State HWY's as I lose signal from the CC channel and pick a new one it switches seamlessly.

I could not remember if Yoder had an active tower or not, I also agree there might be a small dead zone in the area of K-96 near the Reno/Sedwick county border, I know it is bordering Troop F Dispatch F-2 and Wichita Metro F-1 dispatch, yesterday I heard Troop F Dispatch F-2 while in Wichita this time. It's also possible there was just no one affiliated Troop F Dispatch F-2 on the Wichita/Sedwick towers when I went thru there in the past, or there was just no traffic when I went thru there.

Thanks for all the information.

Default Best KSICS Scanner?

Hey everyone. I had a scanner for about 4 years. Hosted a feed in Manhattan for a year and then eventually moved to the Wichita area a couple years ago. At the time I had a GRE PSR-500 and I loved it, was streaming my scanner tags online with my feed all. It was a sweet setup.

Unfortunately after moving to Wichita, the PSR-500 didn't do well with the simulcast system and I ended up selling it.

So now it's been 2 years, I was wondering if things have improved and what the best scanner is that works with this system. Antennas too. I read through the last few years on this thread just to make sure someone else didn't ask the same.

It seems to me that the Wichita broadcastify is in need of better fire and EMS streams. But if I recall, they just take the initial call and then use their computers for everything else? So maybe it doesn't matter anyway since they will be boring...no details.

Anyway thought I would ask. Thanks

I just got back to Wichita, a few months ago. I had nothing but a hard time with the Sedgwick System and my GRE-600's/500's and the RS, PRO-197-106's. I went and got two UNICATION G4's.. Wow, what a difference. The simulcast issues are not an issue any longer. And with the newest firmware, they are also PII ready. I also picked up two, XTS-5000's... Another great radio. Getting them programmed isn't as easy as the G4's and G5's... But NO simulcast issues there also. If interested in the XTS-5000, just PM me... I'll point ya in the same direction everyone else will. Nice little place in Derby.

Thanks for the reply! These appear to me that they are more of a handheld radio than a scanner? Or do they also have the scanning capability built into them?

I was hoping someone with a HomePatrol 1 or 2 unit would be able to tell me how they work. Or the new Uniden BearTracker scanners.

Thanks

4431 is Techs EMS. They use it for their VA Contract.

I believe that 4759 is one of the Douglas County tacticals that I have been hearing.

I have heard 4759 in the clear on mine.

As for Techs EMS, here is their website ... https://ksems.com/

They do EMS for Osage, Nemaha and Jackson County and then got the contract for non-emergency work at VA for their interfacility stuff.
