I'll be in Destin next week and I'm a little confused looking at the database. Is Destin a city and does it have a PD and FD? It looks like maybe the sheriff patrols Destin? I understand that I can't monitor the state frequencies but it would be a big help if anyone has a P97 or P96 file I could use since I'm not sure what frequencies I should be monitoring.

The city of Destin is covered by the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office. It’s a contract they had arranged some time ago. The same holds true for fire services. There are two stations in Destin, 9 & 10. During the summer, they are some of the busiest in the county with all the tourist in town.

I’ve attached a p97 file to get you started.

Thanks a lot, Dan, that makes it a lot clearer. Thanks for the file, I'll put it to good use. :)

Since you going to be in the Destin area, you may want to customize the file for the areas around Destin. May I suggest making a bank with the following.

154.86000 186.2 PL Okaloosa Fire South
154.41500 186.2 PL OCFR Tac-2
154.44500 186.2 PL OCFR Tac-3
460.47500 186.2 PL Okaloosa Sheriff - South
460.52500 186.2 PL Okaloosa Sheriff - Tac 2 (South)

460.07500 186.2 PL Ft. Walton Beach Police Ch-1
453.87500 186.2 PL Ft. Walton Beach Police Ch-2
460.27500 186.2 PL Police/Sheriff (E-Channel)

154.25000 146.2 PL South Walton Fire District
460.20000 186.2 PL Walton Sheriff - South

This way you have all the action in your area instead of hearing what happens in the north end of the counties.
