Is there anybody out there that can help me program Arap Co in to my GRE-500. Everything else works fine Aurora, DIA, etc but I can't seem to get Arap Co to work???? Appreciate any ideas?

Chuck, What software are you using, as I have a win-500 file for the area that works great.

If the O.P. is interested in your file, it won't matter what software he's using. You can export from Win500 to a .BIN file. That .BIN file could then be uploaded to the scanner with the "Demo App" that came on the CD with the scanner. If the O.P. wants to view/edit the file on a PC, he could then download from the scanner into whatever software he's using (in case that software won't read the scanner's .BIN file format).

I don't know how new you are to scanning, but Denver, Aurora, and DIA are EDACS systems. I've never used a GRE but you should have to tell the thing what kind of system you want to listen to. Arapahoe County is a Motorola P25 system. In addition, when programming the control channel pay attention to one of the sticky threads at the top that state which towers Arapahoe County is locked out of. If you attempt to use those towers you won't hear their talkgroups.
