• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I'm traveling from upstate NY to foxwoods this weekend. I'm going to D/L CSP into my 396 via Butels software and radio ref site. My question is do I have to D/L every site in the state or can I just go with the control frequencies then the I'DS that I want for that particular area. Thanks

I would guess you are going Mass Pike to I-91 South to Rt 2 East. If so:

I-91 @ MA line to Rt 2 EB @ Exit 11 use CT SP Troop H - CC 868.2625; Troop H's T/G is 5616
Addl areawide freqs for this section 45.86, PD Hotline. This area is in Hartford County

Rt 2 @ Exit 11 to Rt 2 @ Norwich line use CSP Troop K - CC 868.9125; Troop K's T/G is 7216
Add'l areawide freqs: 33.80, FD EMS Tones for eastern CT (several dispatch centers, you are in KX - Colchester's area)

Rt 2 @ Norwich line to Foxwoods use CSP Troop E - CC 868.3375; Troop E's T/G is 3216; CSP's Casino T/G's are 17616, 19216 but very rarely used)

Foxwoods has several LTR systems, use the RR DB for them

You probably could get by with programming all the control channels as one system, if you are just passing through.

If you absolutely want to be sure that you do not miss a site, however, then you should program each site as its own system.

The way I understand it, the radio stops on the first active control channel it hears, listens for transmissions, then moves on to the next system. It does not, as I understand, keep withing the system to see if there are other control channels that may also be active. So if you happen to be in an area where you radio could receive two (or even more) active control channels, you'll miss the additional ones).

Whenever I go through an area, I program mine as a separate system for each site. With the Butel software, it is made quite easy to do that, particularly if you download the stuff from the website.
