Hi,
Need a little help on which site La Porte Police use. I am searching though the control channels and i'm trying to find the closest site (I'm near spencer hwy and 146). Thanks!!

Yeah, Tried it on my 396T, I just get multiple IDs flash on the screen and no audio. I get the feeling they might be on the digital TDMA side now. Oh well.

Sounds like you need to set the custom tables for rebanding.

I'm in western south bend, and I can't ever get jacksh** from laporte. Elkhart Co/city comes in great, but laporte not so much.

I'm not surprised you can't hear La Porte, Texas in Indiana.

Man, you get around. Weren't you just in Orange County a little while ago?

La Porte PD can also be pulled off the Pasadena tower which doesn't require rebanding capability, but the reception isn't too hot east of 146.

Yeah, that's 'cause you've got a nice LOS path down Fairmont Parkway back into Pasadena. If you move around too far in Old La Porte or El Jardin it'll drop off pretty quick on a handheld.
