You can monitor the system in conventional FM mode unless they assign multiple groups to the same frequency(home repeater). Here Dispatch is on one, Car 1 is on one. Thats easy to monitor in conventional. Other repeaters here have more than one talkgroup on them. The multiple talkgroups aren't the hot ones anyway. We're not busy enough that radios ever go off the home repeater here. LTR here acts almost like PL.
I agree the manual is pretty poorly written. You really have to read and read the manual. When some one asks a question on this forum it is not cool to tell some to read the manual. The guy probably has been reading the manual and is asking a simple question. He does not need a rude comment like that. He is simply asking for a quick answer. Nothing more. We are all learning here.
Yea, thanks to all of you who didnt give me a smart a$$ answer...I wouldnt have asked if it was a Uniden manual or someting, but it was a RS manual....You all know how RS likes to withold information..
