    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:

First, I'm new to these newer HP type Uniden radios' so I have a question on programming using Sentinel.

I monitor a large regional P25 radio system in the SF Bay Area with probably over 10000 radios. Agency "A" always uses radios with the same first four digits, 1234### for example. Is there a way to create an alpha tag in Sentinel with only the first four digits and wildcard the rest? There is just way to many radios to program them all in. I looked around in the manual but didn't see anything that jumped out at me on how to do it.

Thanks.

Nope. I have 10000 radios in my local system too. Get a dongle and unitrunker and start giving those radios a name.

Then you can export to excel or something and build yourself a file to upload to Sentinel.

Ah that's lame. Ok. What's the max number of radio IDs you can add per system in Sentinel?

There's not a 'hard' limit on radio ID's per se. However, the limit is that the Favorites list cannot exceed 1Mb in size.I have a couple of lists with only one system each, but with 10K+ UID's each, that run over 550kb.
