Does anyone know if the HC Sheriff Dispatch had radio problems over the weekend? I was not able to pick up much of anything.

Alt. Control Channels

Over the weekend and possibly late last week the Henn West system had been using one of the alternate control channels instead of the primary. I don't know if that was part of the problem, but I thought I'd mention it. Several of the other metro systems were also using alternates periodically as well.

I believe Hennepin East system did so control channel hopping to a couple of the alternate control channels this past weekend.

Thanks All!!
I am still having problems with it. I haven't heard anything on car to car from Orono, Mound, S lake, Minnetrista or even West Henn Publie Safety. Once in a while I hear the South Main and the calls are all for Plymouth. This is driving me crazy. I need to know what is happening out there. I have a Pro 106 and had my scanner cloned by RS Chanhassen. I locked everything out except the South Main and the local PD's. I tried reading my manual last night but it might as well beeen written in Greek. I have no clue as what to do. So in the mean time I am listening to the MSP and the ambulances. HELP!

It is possible that there is no traffic on the car to car channels. Those channels are infrequently used. You might want to consider having someone else help you program it since RS isnt necessarily the best place to get it programmed,

If you what to get it reprogramed take it to Action Radio in Maple Grove . They know whats going on. NOT R.S.

Make sure you have both the control ch and the alt chs.loaded in you scanner. Here are the freqs put in the ones with the A and C after the freqs. they are the control channels.

ARMER Frequencies

This may be a good place to discuss this. I recently got both a Uniden Bearcat BCD396XT and BCD996XT. Just for fun I have been working on different systems and frequencies to see if anything has changed. Needless to say, this is NOT a static hobby and things have changed. For example, despite what is shown here on the database, some of the frequencies at various sub-systems have changed. I did a search routine conventionally with DIGITAL ONLY modulation selected. Since each sub-system uses a different NAC code that is a good way to verify waht frequencies are used at each sub-system. I seem to recall that all of the control channels shown here are correct for the ones that I could verify, but the frequencies used at each sub-system changed somewhat. I also have verified that by scanning the various sub-systems and logging under AC XT PRO to confirm what frequencies are being used. To most people that use the control channel mode it doesn't matter, though.

As an aside, I did not realize that Eden Prairie has its own stand alone P25 trunked system. Did they use all of the old EF Johnson MultiNet frequencies and switch to P25 then?

I also found out that the old GE/Ericsson/Macom/Tyco EDACS Racom system here in the Twin Cities seems to be gone completely. Not that I ever monitored it very often.

Speaking of EDACS, I assume everything that was on Bloomington's old EDACS has switched to ARMER, or did anything stay separate?

With the weather, this might be a good time to confirm what public works departments have gone ARMER and which ones are still conventional. Actually, do we have some other systems, too? Did I read that Champlin or somewhere north metro has public works on an LTR system?
