Hello, does anyone know if the new database is downloaded for Uniden, or for Whistler.software programs, for the Dayton, Ohio or Montgomery County area.

Thanks

The database is updated weekly by each. Uniden usually does their database pull on Sunday night, not sure of the time frame for Whistler.

Dayton, went to the Motorola II Smartnet, is there a trick to programming it? , with a BCD 436hp and a whistler 1080, looks like they went to the 700mhz band, I am also about 15 miles out, any suggestions. Tried manually to change it on the Uniden software, still no reception, suggestions, Also, will a Home patrol I and a GRE receive , suggestions,

Ohio MARCS-IP: Multi-Agency Radio Communications (P25) Trunking System, Various, Ohio - Scanner Frequencies

There is no 700 band, they use 760-870 MHz. and it is Project 25 Phase I, not Motorola II. You may need to update the database in your 436. Click on the link above to see the system.

Have updated the database, when you use the Sentinel software, still uses the 851 mhz, on up, not the 712mhz like on radio reference, have manually programmed the freq. from Radio reference, to sentinel
and still no signal, tried the 853.600 no answer there either

Here's what's currently listed in the MARCS-IP Database for Dayton. Tower location: 3901 Guthrie Road.

772.85625 773.13125 773.48125 774.05625 774.55625a 774.83125c 853.750 855.2125 856.2125

Have you tried using 774.83125 and 774.55625 as the CC's?

That is a different ip system. Mainly state users. Montgomery county dayton is on the county ip system.maybe someone else can chime in here on the different ip sites and who uses what towers. Also if you can make it come to the monix north meeting nov 12 at 6pm middletown donatos.

dwayne0564,

I took a look at both the MARCS-IP database and the current Sentinel database. There are several issues with both.

As sopranosno1 pointed out, there are two MARCS-IP Sites in Montgomery County. One is the Montgomery County Site, which is a 8 or 9 tower Simulcast Site covering the entire county. Next there is a Dayton site which is a one tower site. It covers the city of Dayton and area of up to 15 miles.

One problem is, the current MARCS-IP RR Database has just one TG listing for Montgomery County. There's no way to know what traffic is on each site.

Next the Sentinel database program still has the old Dayton Moto Type II info listed. Plus it also has just the MACRS-IP Montgomery County Site information posted. Note: it looks like some of the old Dayton City freq's are in use on the MARCS-IP Montgomery Site listing.

Bottom line, if you try to monitor using the Uniden Sentinel Zip Code method, you are going to have problems.

Right now, sopranosno1's suggestion of going to the monix meeting, sounds like the best way to go. Over time, both the RR MARCS-IP Database TG listing and the Sentinel Database will get sorted out (more clearly defined).

I believe the best option for now would be to ask the monix folks to help you setup Favorites Lists for both MARCS-IP Montgomery County and MARCS-IP Dayton.

Got it to work on the HP1 but no luck so far in 436, also, on the h1 I got signals last night nothing today, I know their broadcasting, got it on the internet, I'm about 15 miles out, right on the edge, but picking up clark, and Clinton, should be a problem, I just wonder if there is another channel their broadcasting on, thats not on the current download list, even turned down the squelch,

Are you using the full DB? If so what is your range setting? The sites have a range of 15 or 15.7. You would need to see if that covers your range.

FWIW- if not already - use a favorite list.

I am using a Favorite list, although, I can receive some broadcasts, with my whistler, 1080, but it seems like the 436 and the HP1 are having issues, I think I am right at the 15 range, but I had no problem receiving their signal before they changed over
