I have a BC396T with the latest firmware installed. I am trying to program Jersey City NJ P25 400 MHz Trunked System. I tried with all the frequencies in the system as well as just the control channel (s) using RR Data base. But I still cant pick them up though I have strong signal 3 bars indicated.

However, I may have come across an inconsistency (or more likley it's just my lack of a thorough knowledge of trunking:roll:)

When setting the trunking parameters for this system this is what is required.
From the RR Data Base
Custom Frequency Tables

Base Spacing Offset
450.000 12.5 8192
450.000
12.5 12288
FROM key pad or software entry (ARC 396)

Base Spacing Offset CH
BASE CONFIG 1 450.000 12.5 758
BASE CONFIG 2 450.000 12.5 758

If I am reading correctly I can not change the offset numbers greater than 758.

Am I missing something:confused:!

Please help and or point me in the correct direction on this.

Thanks:lol:
