In Sentinel, when you try to append a specific department (a county, city, or an agency like an EMS provider),
View attachment 82183
that is in a large statewide or regional system, to a Favorites list, the software will also append all of the sites in the trunked system, in addition to what you selected. I presume that this is what is happening to you when you try append just Athens County, and that's what you mean by it "putting the entire state in".

However, there is a fairly easy way to get rid of the sites that you do not want.
First, pull up the database page for the system, which in this case, is MARC-IP.
Go to the System Frequencies section of the database page, where all of the Sites are listed:

Click on the County column header, as highlighted above.
That will re-sort the sites by the name of the county where the site is located, as illustrated below:

This makes it easier to identify the sites you want, in your county, along with those in an adjoining county (if you want or need them).
Now, in Sentinel, there are two ways to proceed.
The first would be to open your Favorites list in the Favorites List Editor in Sentinel. You can either select that from the drop-down Edit
menu, or by clicking on the icon that resembles a Star, with a piece of paper on it, under the "w" of View
on the first line menu items:

Once the Editor is open, click on the system name, and then select the Sites

The sites are listed in alphabetical order, by site name.
Some of the sites are named for a city, or county, but others are named after a road, or local geographic feature, or something else. But, using the MARCS database page, with the sites in County order, you can identify which ones you want, and those you do not, which you can delete.
If you have a consecutive string of sites in one long, uninterrupted, list, click on the first site, then, holding down the <Shift>
key and click on the last one in the list. That will highlight the first, last, and all in between. Clicking on the red X
will delete all of them you selected.

Sentinel will give you a confirmation prompt, asking if you want to delete the selected items. Click "OK" to proceed with the delete.
You can then proceed to select another string of sites to remove, and proceed as above. If you have sites that are not in consecutive order, you can select those individually by holding down the <Ctrl>
key, while you select individual items. Then delete those as well.
Of course, since Sentinel lists the sites in alphabetical order by site name, you could, instead, click on the Name
header over thye list of sites, so that the list you see in the Sentinel Editor matches what you see on the database page.
Note that you can also do this from the Sentinel main window, instead of using the Favorites Editor.
Select your sites as noted above by clicking on each one in the right side pane of Sentinel's main window.
Once you have a string of sites selected, then <Right>
click on the group selected, and choose Remove from Favorites List
from the pop-up menu (or just hit the Delete key)
