My order would beAre the best sites to use for Arapahoe County and municipalities (Metcom, Littleton, Englewood, GWV etc) still the following:
DTB, Chevron, Smoky Hill and Arapahoe Admin?
Question for you Jim ... on your PSR-600, do you use the stationary or roam setting on the DTRS system? I seem to be missing a lot of stuff on my 600 for some reason.My order would be
#2: Bennett (if you want Eastern Arap County)
#4: Smoky Hill
#5: Admin (Littleton downtown site is very limited)
But for the most part unless you want to monitor CSP Greenwood (Chevron) is all you need.
With the DTRS (digital) system, you only need to program in the control channels in any order.Ok guys so im new to the orum and new to the digital world. Im used to the edac's and analog systems. so i have a really dumb question to a really smart person that knows digital. So I have the Pro-96 running win96 no issues nice template and all that. So the question is do i need to have these digital freqs programmed in a certain order like the edac or does it not make a differance? And why would I hear static coming from a site on a bank? And why wont I get a ID from a site? Sometimes it will only show the site but I dont know whos talking
I'm doing the same thing with my PSR-600Just use my PSR-500/600 for EDACS ESK mainly still love Pro-96/2096's for DTRS.
Yeah ... I've noticed when comparing reception on the 96 to the 500/600 that I seem to miss a lot more on the GRE's.I'm doing the same thing with my PSR-600
I have the same problem scanning the DTRS with the PSR, my 2096's and Pro-96's do a much better job. I have messed with every setting possible on the PSR, but it does not work as well.
Also, I agree with Jim 100%...just use Chevron if that site is clear from your location.
Less sites is better, one is best, if you are stationary.
I currently have my "multi site mode" set to "off" with only one site (Chevron) entered
and that seems to work the best, but I still miss a lot of traffic that the Radio Shack radios will get.
I still say less is better-well the thing is im mobile, normally in the douglas,jeffco, and littleton areas. so what i did was i programmed the sites in corrospondents to the banks. so like jeffco i have on bank 2 and i have like lookout mtn riley peak and a few more programmed in bank 2 running it closed with LE Disptach and Data programmed to it. But then it gets alittle more tough when i want like littleton pd, i put littleton on bank 3 and it seems like i have to use alot of sites to get traffic. Am i headed in the right direction with this? And anyone know as to why I wouldent get talk id's on the screen with transmits? Like I see it happen on chevron and DTB the most.
It was a swift hijack indeed. I don't mind.Ok-
I just realized that I was talking to two different people about two different radios
My last post is referring to the PSR radio's
Now, for playj2, most of my last post is also true for your Pro-96. I would use the sites listed in my last post. As far as the TG ID's (I was thingking radio ID's on the PSR's),
they should show up fine on the Pro-96. and if you have them alpha labeled, that should show up also just fine. My first thought would be that you are not getting a strong enough signal off of a particular site. Try just using the sites I mentioned and see if that helps.
