With the new CPU 1.4 for the GRE PSR-500/-600 and the "show Radio ID" option, I was wondering what the best way (other than a lot of listening time) to identify the most Radio IDs in the least amount of time.

Then I remembered that when I was in Terre Haute, THFD did daily radio checks at 7:30 AM local time every day. I was able to catch a lot of IDs using Unitrunker in very little time.

Was wondering if other agencies do the same thing.
Please post:
- Agency
- Time of regular test
- Trunked System or Frequency Used

Steve - feel free to turn this into a sticky.

Madison Co does but i never really thought about it so I never got the times. They do it with fire and EMA units

If I had to guess I'd say 17:00 for the fire and 19:00 on Tuesday I think for EMA. Maybe next time I'll think to get the times. They do it on conventional frequencies but it is simulcast on SAFET
