I think you mean ID SEARCH until you know the IDs and can save them and name them. ID SCAN is for once you have a set of KNOWN IDs to scan.

And if you DO NOT CARE WHAT TG is being used by WHO, then set as CONVENTIONAL with the tone set to DIGITAL, and SEARCH unless you KNOW the RAN. If you want to know who is using what, you set a conventional as NXDN OFT, ID SEARCH ON. Then once you ID the TGs, put it to ID SCAN.

Same as you would do an DMR, or P25 frequency.

Not entirely true, Mike. You can make the Uniden emulate the Whistler and hear the exact same things by programming the frequencies as conventional channels. You will then hear the audio. You won't see the TGs, but you can tell which frequencies are active. It will also tell you the RAN.

Once you know which ones are active, program it as a trunked system and run LCN FINDER on it.

I'm having a moment with figuring my system out. I'm listening to the system as a conventional system and hear comms. When I do the LCN finder, no results show up.

Any thoughts?

I thought the system had to be programmed as trunk system to get run LCN finder and get LCNs... LCNs shouldn't matter to conventional channels - or so I would expect.

Note all the frequencies, now make a new NXDN Trunk system and leave LCN blank then LCN finder. No specific order to program the frequencies, the LCN finder will find the channel numbers.

I wasn't very clear on my post and I apologize.

I have the same system programmed twice (two completely different FLs even). Once as a conventional and the second as a trunked system. I'm checking conventional to see if it is active, then go to the TRS version to do channel finder.

Do the RAN's all match up during conventional search? Using FM mode? NXN 4 or NXN 9 or NXN IDS showing in display during conventional search?

Just for clarification, it does. You pick the Site in LCN Finder.

When I'm on the trunked system, I see NX4 up by the date on my 536.

When its on the conventional, I see RAN 1 show up where you would see the CTCSS, etc., values.

Am I correct that NX4 corresponds to a 4800 NXDN system? It is listed in RR as a 9600 system, if that matters.

Would I be better off not fretting over this until the update comes out concerning the TGID0 that Upman mentioned?

You are correct...you're looking at a NXDN 4800 trunking system. Look for other frequencies with RAN-1, program those frequencies in and run the LCN finder. NXDN 4800 trunking isn't having any issues. Sounds like whoever submitted the information was incorrect.

Yes - NX4 means 4800. If RR says 9600 that is an error, but both are programmed the exact same way in a 536 so it's a non-issue.
