Default Win500 Michigan RR import

I have an issue,

When i use Win500 to import the MPSCS freq using the Radio reference premium web import it doesn't import the trunking tables. Does anyone know how to do this. Without the trunking table I cant listen to anything

Anyone have a similar issue

There are no tables for MPSCS to import, it's a P25 system, the scanner will get the table from the CC.

The trouble your having sounds like you're out of range, you should be able to get site 5-11 if you are in Mackinaw City or on the Island. I don't have Win500.

Couple of my latenight common "forgets"..... U remember to check the boxes for the appropriate sites and talkgorups? and in the next window pick a scanlist to associate to?. Maybe if you could attach the file to your next post someone can take a look at it.

If your trying to hear sailboat race traffic, there won't be any and everything is usually quiet till after the boats get in.

Did you import the MPSCS info or the VHF stuff? I have found when visiting the area that much has left VHF for MPSCS.

For MPSCS, use towers from Chippewa, Mackinac, Emmet, and Cheboygan counties.

If not specifying talkgroups, you will need to create the wildcard talkgroup.

Send me a PM with the win500 file and I'll look at it.

I was on the island with my scanner a few days ago and was not able to receive the tower. Not sure if I had something programmed wrong (don't think so?) or a new CC?
