    Motorola Type II SmartZone Omnilink Assistance

    It looks like scan list 11 is set up correctly for the Utah County trunked system using the Utah County Simulcast site. There are 5 other sites in the county. Hopefully, the units you want don't affiliate with the other sites. Enjoy your Trip!

    Usually small towns are dispatched by the Sheriff's Office or Small Town PD. I would bet on Small Town PD.

    Robeson County

    Although the Robeson Co database does not mention VIPER, there are a large number of talkgroups listed. The 2 VIPER sites in Robeson Co don't show to be simulcast, so the 536 should handle that with no problem. The license of the Proctorville site shows it was cancelled in 2014. One of the...

    Looking for scanner that can pick up Viper McDowell NC.

    Is it legal to have a portable scanner while driving

    The problem is that the laws are so vague. They should specify for state residents only. You could be fined or jailed if the equipment is in your vehicle. You know, "Ignorance of the law is no excuse!" I worked with news media all of my life, but I am now retired. I held a FCC First Class...

    Pro-106 programming

    The Pro-197 is the mobile version of the Pro-106. I programmed a Pro-197 manually for a large county system, complete with all talkgroups and alpha tags. I wish I hadn't. It is soooo.... much faster and easier using programming software. I also programmed a Uniden BC296D manually. I wore...

    Pro-106 programming

    It would save you a lot of time and trouble to get a cheap Windows computer and programming software. You can use ARC500, Win500, or PSREdit500 software with the Pro-106. There have been problems getting the key for Win500. I like Butel ARC500. ARC500 Basic is all you need to program your...
