I am currently setting up the growing LWIN system on my BCD996T scanner. The way I have it set up is the system LWIN. Then I have most of the sites programmed for now. The problem is the scanner only accepts 20 groups. I was trying to set it up where there would be one group for each parish, state agencies, etc.... As it stands right now there are many more groups in the db to be able to set it up the way I would like to. Not to mention by the time all of the talkgroups are added to the LWIN system there will not be enough room to store all of the talkgroups (max 250).
Does anybody have a better way to set this up to better organize this.
I was hoping the newest Uniden Model BCD996XT would have more groups available. I notice it does not. Is there any plans for a new scanner in the near future that will have more groups available.

I have the same problem with Ohio's MARCS. The limit is 20 groups per system, not 20 groups total. I've set up a new duplicate systems for each sub-set of groups I want to monitor. The scanning is a little slower (quite a bit really) but I have the groups I want to monitor. This is really a Rube Goldburg way to get around Uniden's limits.
