People are going to need to know the exact make and model of scanner you have, in order to help you program it.i have a triple trunkinq hand held scanner.
what is sbco?
what does system 6/7 mean?
Sounds frustrating. Well, there are two possibilities:when i went to RadioShack they had proqrammed it to SBCO for me. Also they qave me a list of frequencies to put in. but all i hear is static.
i went back and asked them why its not workinq, and they dont know how to work it.
ive had my scanner since december 09 and ive been doinq some search work and found nothinq.
Likely, but not always the case. Let's assume that it's ok, and it's merely operator and/or programming error. Remember, it HAS to be RIGHT or it just won't work.well i know my scanner is not broken because it is brand new.
Could very well be. I have very little faith in Radio Shack.so it could be possible that Radio Shack proqrammed it wronq.
You've come to the right place. There's a lot of people here who can help, in varying capacities.im just tryinq to ask some questions so i can maybe fiqure it out. im not lookinq to find step by step results.just some answers that could help me.
Well... Maybe. Maybe not. SB County is pretty huge, and the coverage footprint of each system is not that huge. Example: If you're in the high desert, you're not going to hear the valley system (6/7), the West End system, or the SB City system. If you're in the valley, you're not going to hear system 1 (Apple Valley and Victorville). And you're not going to hear system 2 unless you're in Barstow. And so on. So, actually, it does matter quite a bit where you are. Letting us know approximately might be of some help.and im currently in SBCO so i dont think that should be the problem.
Setting up a scanner for a trunked system is pretty complicated at times. Read the wiki, it's got a lot of good information for beginners. Look at the database for SB County, and see the various systems, frequencies, and talk groups. And if you don't understand at least the previous sentence, we're not going to be of much use to you. But it's all explained in the wiki.im new to all of this so when people write thinqs on the forums i dont understand what they mean.
