Will the BCT8 do 900MHz Trunking? I have tried to program it for So Cal Edison's Frost Peak site, but the 'M' indicator in the display stays off and it just sits on the control channel.

My settings:
E2-800

1 Prog F
51 936.9000
52 938.0125
53 938.0250
54 938.1125
55 938.1250

2 Prog id
-- --- [empty]

3 ScnList
-- --- [empty]

4 OFF On

5 S-bit
On

6 Eot
On

7 CC Only
CC OFF

8 Id Lout
-- --- [empty]

Thanks for your help!

I think you should be on E2-HI and you also need to enter the talk groups in Prog id that you want to listen to.

The manual says E2-Hi is for 136-174MHz. Tried it and it didn't work.

However, I was able to program it with Butel's ARC8 program (trial version). It would be nice to know how to do it from the front panel.
