Hello everyone,

It took me a year but I finally purchased a Pro-106 for my Father. I used the ARC software and downloaded the file (Thank You RadioReference for posting the videos).

All seemed to have went well but I am getting all static. I am located in Morris County NJ and that is the file I downloaded. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Thanks for replying. With the purchase of the USB cable, you get the software trial and 2 free downloads (which, in my ignorance, I've blown through already).

I've deleted what I downloaded and kept it simple with the data you provided. I copied and pasted 2 frequencies, uploaded to scanner but now get "nothing enabled" on the scanner. Really appreciate any guidance here to get me up and running. I'm fairly technical but not an expert. Though if I can't get it programmed, no way Pops is going to (82 year old Vet).

Thanks Guys. Sky, I had it going then I blew it up again. Going to go with Highpocket's suggestion and try Win500.

High, I remember you from last year when I first posted, Pop's in Leisure Village and I know you're nearby.
Really appreciate you guys taking the time. If it wouldn't be too much trouble, can I also ask for a file for the Manchester area? That's ultimately what will be programmed on this box.

Update: OK guys, I have WIN500 installed successfully.

Give me a few minutes and I'll attach a file for Morris Cty and Ocean County. Just remember when you upload a file to the scanner it over-writes what is in the scanner. Usually you try to have everything in one file that you want in your scanner. Read up on V-Folders, you may use that in one way or the other.

Here are the files, you can add to, edit or delete whatever you need to. Unzip to the Win500 directory, use the open command in Win500 to open a file.

If you ever become a Premium Subscriber on RR here is a Guide that will help with using Win500 for importing and uploading to your scanner. Also info on V-Folders.

WIN500 - UtahRadio


I also sent you a PM (Private Message). :)

I just spent the last two hours understanding the guide. Completely understand the concept of V-folders now. Figured I'd take baby steps and only load the Morris County file. Not sure what I got going on though. The device is scanning but I don't get anything. I can see all the different groups in the software, and I can see the different groups come up in the display on the device, but just static. There's gotta be someone talking out there :)

I also got all the PMs. I'm gonna guess that's an inside joke you guys play on a newbie? ; )

Mr. Highpockets,

You, Sir, are the man. Thank You so much, I am Happy and part embarassed. Once I set the sqelch at 11:00, bingo! I'm getting all sorts of chatter. The weather is a no-go but you know what? I certainly can deal with that one.

Thanks again for your time and help,

RNJ

PS I'll be joining full time very soon...

Highpockets, Merry Christmas. Any chance you can post the Ocean County zip file again?

Thanks.

Highpockets,

That's several times now that you've helped me. Very much appreciated, Sir. File received and uploaded. Pops is happier than a pig in.....

Thanks again for your help.

Highpockets,

Sorry to be a pain....do you get Manchester PD on your scanner? I see it listed in the file you posted but we can't seem to get anything. Manchester and Lakehurst are the closest thing to my Dad.

PS I upgraded to being a premium member if that helps me any ;)

I sent you an answer to this regarding the PM you sent. Read the PM and get back to me.

He'll recieve Lakehurst on the Ocean County Trunked system, on the Dispatch Central Talk Group.
