    NY GRANTS FUNDS TO IMPROVE EMERGENCY COMMUNICATIONS STATEWIDE

    It doesn't work that way, 100% of the money for any of those programs was never going to what NYS said they appeared to be for, the 911 stuff says 41% goes to the general fund, the lottery school funding is capped at a certain amount and the rest goes into the general fund, I would suspect the...

    Need help with Whistler TRX-1

    Try the stock antenna on it...reason being is the RS800 antenna has gain which is hurting your situation. too much signal acts just like to too little except you will have good signal strength but poor reception as the radio is clipping the overpowering signal.

    Need Help with finding new Talkgroup on a P25 phase I system

    if the new talk groups are in the radio reference database then use ezscan and import them to the scan list of your choice then copy configuration to scanner/sdcard and can try adding a wildcard to the talkgroup to pick them up while scanning then write down the info and add it manually in ezscan.
