• 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:

Have you tried reaching out to your Unication Dealer? As a dealer myself, I'm always there to help my customers program in any system they need help with.

Just make sure your trying to program in a P25 system. The G5 won't work with any other trunk system.
If you are having problems with Out of Range, try removing the Site and RFSID and enter the wildcard FFF for both. Also - make sure your WACN and ID settings are correct for the system you are trying to monitor. And start small - just put your local site in there for now and then expand out with the other sites in the network, but only if you need them.

Feel free to contact me if you need any other help programming your G5. It's a great little pager!

MCD Dispatch

I listen to them on my G5. Glad they AND Skokie FIRE decided to keep citizens safe and aware of dangers by being in the open. Their frequencies are under MCD Dispatch in STARCOM21 Radio REF sections. They are on STARCOM21 ... listening to them on site 149.
They're on this page https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?sid=2324

scroll down to Cook County Talkgroups to see them. Frequencies you use are the Control Channels for the closest Starcom21 SITE to you.

It looks like Norridge is conventional. Do a search on this page for the frequencies.
https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?ctid=606

Code:
Harwood Heights
Fire by Norwood Park FPD on 154.370 (103.5)

STARCOM21 Statewide Illinois    
Project 25 Phase II    	Police (4000?-series units) dispatched by Municipal Consolidated Dispatch (MCD) in Harwood Heights on talkgroup 3891. (10/15/17)

Frequency 	License 	Type 	Tone 	Alpha Tag 	Description 	Mode 	Tag 
471.28750 	KWB434 	RM	146.2 PL	HHts Police	Police: Dispatch (units 400's) (w/ Norridge Police) 	FM 	Law Dispatch 
155.08500 	KDR465 	BM	151.4 PL	HHts PubWrks	Public Works / PD Tac 	FM 	Law Tac 
461.93750 	WQII765 	RM		Eisnhwr Library	Eisenhower Public Library 	FMN 	Public Works
It also refers you to the STARCOM21 system and use Talk Group 3891 for Harwood Heights and Norwood Park.
If you need to put in the Trunksystem, be sure to put in Talk Group 3891 to monitor the above.
