Can I listen to a system if I only have the control ch. hex and name? I don't have the talkgroups. Is there a way to figure out the talk groups?
There's a way to do it; it is quite expensive and requires you having to buy a ProVoice radio among other components, but it's doable in a technical sense. The key word though is expensive.Only thing I wish is that they had a way to listen to the EDACS ProVoice system.
Just create a system in your scanner with ALL of that system's frequencies. Make sure that they are programmed in the exact order shown in the database (LCN Order-Logical Channel Numbering). Do not just program the control channel. Enter ALL of the freqs for that system.This is the deal the company that I work for uses EDACS Standard system. I think I have the correct control ch. but I don't have the talk groups. I want to program my 396xt with this system.
Each radio on the system has a number and say when my coworker keys his radio my radio displays his radio ID and vis versa. Is this useful information?
