Hi I am wondering if anyone could help me out I have a pro-197 I programmed all the freqs for Troop E as they were listed on RR, however its not trunking correctly. I am wondering is that frequancy list correct? the radio is Trucking but i only hear voice on 852.16250. I know I have something set up wrong because that is the only freq I hear anything on, and oftein times i am only reciveing half of the conversation.

Sounds like it is programmed as a regular system and not a rebanded system. What programming software are you using (if any)? On my BCD396T using FreeScan, I entered the following as the System Band Plan and set it to Mot Custom/Reband Type II:

Lower / Upper / Step / Offset
851.025 / 854.000 / 25 / 440
851.0125 / 868.9875 / 25 / 0

Also, be sure you have the newest firmware (1.9).

I have a Pro 197, but I don't have it set up for CT SP as it's my base scanner up here in MA. However, I did use ARC500 and the RR download to create a system so I could give you some information.

The system I set up uses ALL base stations in ROAM configuration.

Lo Hi Offset Base Step
440 559 440 851.025 25.0
0 719 0 851.0125 25.0
720 759 0 848.000 25.0
815 831 0 846.625 25.0
958 958 958 868.975 25.0
961 1022 0 843.400 25.0

Frequencies are entered in this order.

853.750000
853.200000
852.700000
858.487500
859.762500
853.612500
852.225000
852.587500
853.562500
853.162500
853.912500
852.650000
852.200000
853.337500
852.625000
860.487500
853.262500
852.762500
859.937500
855.212500
851.412500
859.487500
858.762500
853.987500
853.962500
857.237500
868.962500
868.987500

Multi Site is set to "ROAM" and Check all CC is set to NO. T-Tables is set to "Custom". System Type is set to MOT 800/900.

Remember with trunking you need to have the frequencies and the talk groups set up for the system to trunk correctly.

Do you only want to listen to Troop E or do you want to listen to as many Troops as possible. If you set up for just the Troop E site and put in the Talk Groups for the other troops in the area, you'll hear a lot more. The way the CSP system works, more than one Troops' traffic is carried on each site.

If you only want to scan the Troop E trunk, then the control channel frequencies are 853.3375
852.6250. If you enter those with the T-Table data above, you'll hear the Troop E trunk fine.

My only other advice is to get one of the available software packages for programming the scanner. It makes things much easier.

Good luck.
