Default I'm totally bewildered

I've done a fair amount of searching and I can't find the answer to what I'd like to do. I live in Chatham Mass and I'd like to program my bc246 to receive just Chatham pd and fd. I have the talkgroups and I know it's motorola type 2. I can't see how to put this info in to my scanner, Thanks in advance for your help.

Yeah, and then follow the directions on the "Easy to Read Manual" in this section. You only need the control channels.

I would recommend using Freescan programming software. Program just one trunking system, Motorola Type 2/P-25. Enter the following 2 frequencies for your control channels, 860.2375 and 860.2125. Be sure to set it to control channel only in the software. Then program in the 2 talkgroups you want to monitor;

Chatham Fire - 37360

Chatham Police - 38192

If you still have problems, at least download the software I mentioned above (it's free), and I can send you a complete file for Cape Cod, then you can just lock out or delete the talkgroups you do NOT wish to monitor.
