Hi
I’m an owner of BCD536HP and I’m banging my head and pulling my hair out. I finally think I got how in the Sentiel software how to add a trunking system or site to a quick key favorite. Now I have add all the depts that go with this system like Fire and EMS and Municipal and colleges. So when I put system of City of Allentown in quick keys F0: 0 and then I mark under It to be 0 and then EMS 1 and etc and the same thing for City of Bethlehem F0:1 and do the same thing for all the systems. So when I tell it to write to scanner it puts the system in the F0:0 but the Fire is not in SO:0 it is just out there and when it stops on a another thing it’s not in the key that labeled it. Also having the same problem with conventional frequencies can someone give me a step by step and screenshots or videos on how to do it with the software how to get this to work. Please and thank you

Hopefully I made this understandable for somebody if not I’m sorry it’s just hard to word these things what I’m trying to do

You are dealing with favorites lists, systems, departments, and sites. The first thing to do is to set up a favorites list named Lehigh County. You can assign a favorites list (FL) quick key of 0. Next, work on the Allentown system. That will be a P25 Standard trunked system. You can assign a system quick key of 0. Next, you create departments to place your talkgroups in. Allentown police are fully encrypted so you don't need a department for them. You can create 4 departments for Fire, EMS, City Services, and Muhlenburg College and give them department quick keys of 0, 1, 2, and 3. Next you create a site. You need only the red control channel and blue alternate frequencies. Since there is only a single site, give it a quick key of None. The site will be active anytime the system is on. Enter the talkgroups into the appropriate departments. Next, create a P25 Standard trunked system for Bethlehem and give it a system quick key of 1. Continue setting up that system the same way. You can reuse the department quick keys starting at 0. Each system has its own set of department/site quick keys.

I understand but it’s on the quick key 0 for Allentown and say it’s not on the other key it self if it stops on Fire or another bank for City of Allentown EMS

Will be waiting for your PM.


I will try to do that for you tomorrow before I go to my second job at 2 PM and if not I will send it to you when I get home from my second job about 9 PM. Also if you do have a way of recording a video on showing me a step-by-step in the Sentiel software on the same type of scanner I have so it will work for me that would be amazing. But you need to do it slowly so I can understand it but if you have to posted into a video in YouTube that would also be a great help or make sure you do screenshots and make it understandable that I can understand how to do it the correct way so it will work for me on other things that I need to do. Because I really want to get the scanner to work properly
