Joe,
In Sentinel go through and avoid any sites not in (or immediately adjacent to) the sites you will primarily be in and only have it scan the sites for Wake, Durham, Orange, Johnston and Cumberland Cos. The Troop Districts for the above Counties:
Wake is C3
Durham is C7
Orange is D7
Johnston is C6
and Cumberland is B1.
Make sure you have the above Districts loaded in and you should be ok.
Where is the HP2 shines is when you connect a puck GPS to it and let the GPS & Scanner turn on and off sites based off of your location.

Thanks for the info. I will look into a GPS. In the meantime, Is there a map of the sites so I can determine which ones to choose?

Click on the "RR Locations" link just above the site list in RR:

You can also click on the site name and it will give you a coverage range for each tower. I never knew about this cool feature until someone else told me about it. As always, your mileage may vary (some sites may be heard further away than the typical 15 miles) but it give you a good starting point.

Thanks for the info! I exported the sites in the counties I travel and the just "avoided" the others. Another thing that is irritating is how cumbersome it is to edit the Faves. Can you edit in a text editor then import back to Sentinal?
Proscan lets you edit from the faves list without going into another editor but it doesn't support HP 2.
Any other options?
Joe

The RR map is very nice. I wanted a hard copy but there just didn't seem to be a way I could find to print the whole NC map on a large plotter. So in an act of sheer insanity, I printed out individual sheets on my home printer and glued them to a large piece of poster board. I added local antenna sites too so I would have a visual representation of what available transmissions I would have at any location. I am looking at ways to build a folding map of all sites, sort of like the old state highway maps. If someone knows a way or has already done this, please let me know.

Only way I know of is to go to an Print Shop and pay for one of them to ink you up a big old school fold/roll map. I used to have a few (unofficial) maps and such for MS since my dad used to work in the Highway Department (Now DOT) Print Shop.... Was great to have specialized maps that had MHP, MDOT, and other scanner related things on an map.... Of course if this was done nowadays he would most likely have been fired.

(Take all the google maps stuff, and other goodies, do a photoshop type mock up on say a CD Rom or USB Stick, take it to a printer, and see what they can do?)

Any idea of who uses viper tg 52712 ? I came across this tg being used on the salemburg tower this afternoon but I could not identify the units using the talkgroup. There are no tg's in the 52700 range in the database to compare this to.

202xxxx radios are usually NC Dept of Public Safety (Prisons), but I don't know that part of NC.

Most any county GIS department can print the large map you are desiring.

Salemberg is home for the NC Justice Academy Campus. You were possibly hearing DPS-SBI Special Agent Training activities.
