While on-line and using WIN97


In WIN97...

Choose FILE, then WEB IMPORT, then Radioreference.com, then TRUNKED SYSTEMS

Enter your user ID and password and hit START

Select the COUNTRY, STATE, COUNTY, and then SYSTEM

UNCHECK THE CC ONLY box!!!!

First SELECT THE SITES - for Hamilton County, there's only 1.
Next SELECT THE TALKGROUPS - WIN97 can only do 150 talkgroups, so you'll have to select the ID's of choice (or program a second bank for Hamilton County with the other talkgroups).

Next select IMPORT THIS SYSTEM

Select the BANK you want to import this system to.
Enter the BANK NAME
Select the CHANNEL ALPHA TAG format
Select the TALKGROUP ALPHA TAG format

Hit OK

Your first system is programmed in WIN97.

Repeat for other systems or frequencies.

Use a separate bank for each trunked system (for Madison County, you'll need to program the two sites as two different systems in two different banks).

Save, Upload, and enjoy!!!!

To hear Madison County, you want to program the following...

Madison County Public Safety LTR Standard Anderson

Note - there are two "systems" noted.

Program each system into a unique, separate bank.
Program the talkgroups in both systems (to keep things simple).

As for Anderson and "UHF", it's only a reference to their frequencies.
They are listed under the appropriate section on the main Madison County page.
