Does this hold true for the Alton Ill area? I am about 15 miles north of granite city. I have a pro 197. If so how do I program it? You may email me @ email@example.comStlCardinals, the only frequencies you need to program are the control channels for Edwardsville and East St. Louis. The frequencies you should be using are as follows::
852.11250 (Edwardsville CC)
852.36250 (East St. Louis CC)
You can also add the alternate control channels for both sites if you want. You don't need to program in voice channels since your scanner will switch to them from the information in the control channel data stream.
Using a program such as Win500 or PSREdit500 will make it easier to program your scanner, but if GC is all you want to monitor then you don't really need the software.
I decided to take note on the frequencies I heard things on. I had hoped that I could look them up here but alas it is a pay thing.Thanks loads. I will program it in and monitor for awhile to see how I do. I am saving your post in my email so I can find you again. So, Please look for me here. I have learned so much from this posting thread.
