    Lost signal

    If you're hearing the other Bowie County agencies, such as the Sheriff's Office, and Texarkana. on the GATRRS system, then the problem is not in your scanner. Other than the New Boston TGIDs, somehow, being locked out, if you are hearing other talkgroups, then the scanner itself is OK. Do you...

    Plano PD

    Are you speaking about the old, Motorola system for Collin County? Or the new "Collin County Layer" on PAWM.

    Plano PD

    Before purchasing an inline attenuator, I'd suggest that you activate attenuation on the specific site. You can do that either in your Favorites list in Sentinel, or simply do it thru the keypad directly on the scanner.

    Programming BCD352P2 for San Antonio

    Ok I figured that you had, but never hurts to verify I’m hoping someone in your area has a better suggestion I’ll look at your file more closely in the morning but I don’t see anything obviously out of place in a quick once-thru

    Black Friday

    Yep, like some of those that pop up on eBay occasionally, wanting over $1000. The seller must have a boat payment due.

    Programming BCD352P2 for San Antonio

    I'll take a closer look in the morning. But with a quick once-over look, I don't see anything out of place or entered incorrectly. Just to confirm, when, on the scanner, you use the menu, and scroll down to access Settings Then, select Upgrade & press Enter When you try to access the ProVoice...

    Programming BCD352P2 for San Antonio

    If you are picking up zero talkgroups, then something is missing from your programming on that system. Save & post your ProScan file. It's a *.txt file, which is acceptable to attach. (Sentinel and ARC files have to be zipped in order to be attached to a post.)

    Black Friday

    That "discount price" is more than the normal ScannerMaster price. https://www.scannermaster.com/Uniden_Bearcat_BCD996P2_Police_Scanner_Radio_p/10-501891.htm Bearcat Warehouse is lower than either of the above...

    Programming BCD352P2 for San Antonio

    You need to have both the Blue, and Gold, Simulcast sites programmed. The LCN's are the small number in the corner of the frequency's field.

    Programming BCD352P2 for San Antonio

    Starting a duplicate thread, on the same issue, is against forum rules. While your current thread is not totally "in the wrong place", my thought is that by moving it to the Texas forum, you would be much more likely to get the attention of someone actually in your area. OK, you lost me there...

    Programming BCD352P2 for San Antonio

    Did you import the Bexar/San Antonio system from the database? Be sure that the correct LCN#s are in place. Those are required to monitor an EDACS system.

    436hp atx simulcast question

    Very few encrypted talkgroups in Austin or Travis County. However, virtually all of Williams County law enforcement agencies are encrypted.

    Plano PD

    I don't think that think that you'd have to get a different antenna for the Collin County layer. Looking at the page for the antenna, the frequency range, on the first line, includes 700MHz, even though that is not duplicated on the second line. I think I'd try it before buying a second...

    Black Friday

    ScannerMaster is doing 'free ground shipping' on digital scanners, till the end of this year. Usually, Butel has a Black Friday discount on their programming software, for people that already have at least one of their software programs. Whether any of the other dealers, or Amazon, has a...

    If your set the scanner up to run a Discovery session on the system in question, you can have the scanner auto-store the talkgroups it finds. See more details on setting up & using Discovery mode on the Easier to Read manual page. http://new.marksscanners.com/536/436_536.shtml#discovery%20mode

    Programming BCD352P2 for San Antonio

    I would also note that the majority of public safety agencies (Police/Fire/EMS) for both San Antonio, as well as Bexar County, are on this system: https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?sid=1434 If you look at the various talkgroups for agencies in the county, the Mode column for the...

    Plano PD

    Remember that when a feed is set up, only Dispatch talkgroups are permitted. Those labeled as Tac or Talk are not supposed to be used. I wonder if he has something other than Plano PD on the feed. Since you have the scanner, you can add whichever ones you want. His feed page only says "Plano...

    City of Denton P25

    Glad you got it working. About a year & a half ago, I was talking to a local business that had a scanner programmed by ScannerMaster. They were wondering why they were not hearing Garland. Well, their scanner was programmed using the old, analog, Motorola trunked systems for Garland & Mesquite...

    True, although it appears that most of these issues are in earlier production units.

    Uniden Warranty phone out of service

    I wonder if they are taking an extended holiday break. Also, both Tarrant & Denton Counties (their location is near the county line) are having a sudden surge in Covid cases.
