Try Thomson Peak 859.2625 860.2625 White Tanks 868.9125 868.9375 or Central Court Building Tower 866.7750, 868.8250 868.6500. Southwest Frequency Directory says most system traffic is broadcast from these sites.

I tried these. It is still not working. It still says finding control channel. This is weird because on my uniden BC296D scanner it works and locks on to control channel 859.2625.

Thompson peak should work from where you are. I don't own a Uniden, but if those radios can try to see what the scanner attempts to process each CC as.

I am programming it by hand. I have done the TOPAZ system just fine. These are the steps I use to program the mcso system. Select system, edit site, set frequencies and than I put in all the control channels. But it says finding control channel.
