Smile Ma State PD programing advice?

Hello,

I have been using the 396 for a long time but recently I decided to do some programing update. I already have the Mass State PD programed by Troops and everything seems to work OK. But I am wonder if I should program by Zones instead or in addition too what I already have programed?

Sorry for the newbee type of question but there is so much to the Ma State PD system I just need some advice on how to cover it all the best way.

Thanks
Steve

How do you have it programmed??

I'd recommend programming it in order (Troops in alphabetical order, frequencies in order by RR)
I mean:

Ch. Description:
1 Mass state police, Troop A, N dispatch
2 Mass state police, Troop A, S dispatch

and so-on...

I have it programed as one system then within that system I have it broken down into troops.

Sorry to sound so stupid but what do you mean by "frequencies in order by RR"?

Thanks for your suggestion

Steve

Is this a 396T or a 396XT?

See how at this link: Massachusetts State Police Trunking System, Statewide, Massachusetts - Scanner Frequencies

they're in order like this: (scroll down to "TALK GROUPS)
Greater Boston Local Public Safety (Special Events, Tie to SP)
Greater Boston Local Public Safety (Special Events)

That's what i meant...

For MSP, your best to just program the specific Zones you wish to monitor. Assign those Zones their own Quick Keys. Then assign the specific Talkgroups, or as you say, Troops, to those Zones. Assign those Talkgroups their own Quck Keys as well.
