Thank you in advance for any suggestions.
If you can't find a scan list for i75 in Ohio then you'll have to create it your self.
Start by listing the counties that i75 travels through.
Then use the following link to look up the MARCS towers in each county. You only need the active control channel for each tower.
Ohio MARCS - Multi-Agency Radio Communications Trunking System, Statewide, Ohio - Scanner Frequencies
Create a TSYS (trunk group system) for MARCS, set its trunk type as Moto.
Then I'd create a Group Wild Card, that way you will get all of MARCS traffic (including OSP).
You should be good to go.
One note, if you only want to hear OSP traffic you'll have to look up each OSP TG by it's site/post county number. Example Cuyahoga County is 18, so OSP post 18 talk group TG16608 is the Cuyahoga OSP TG. That will be a lot of work.
