Im trying to program a 996p2 with the new state system stuff. ISP, DOT and Law aid stuff for the S.E. corner of the state. I'm using Freescan to try and program it but I'm completely lost on what gets entered where and what tags go with what. Conventional stuff I have no problem but this trunked stuff is over my head by about 10 miles.

I was going to help you out, but the Radio Reference database is down.

Does anyone know which sites on the ISICS system are used for Henry County? Thank You!

Depends a little on what part of the county, since there isn't a tower in Henry Co. When I travel through Mt Pleasant, the Beaverdale site (site 11) comes in pretty good. If it's the north or west part of Henry Co, try Fairfield site (site 31). Hopefully the snippet below will help you to see the site numbers in the area of Henry Co.

I am working on a FreeSCAN file for you with the agencies you requested.

Here is the file. Henry Co does not have a site on the ISICS system. Use the Des Moines and Jefferson Co sites which are on system quick keys 1 and 2. The conventional frequencies for Henry Co are on system quick key 8. Sites for Van Buren, Lee, and Louisa Counties are on system quick keys 3, 4, and 5. There are sites allotted for Henry and Washington Counties on system quick keys 6 and 7 if sites are added in the future for those counties. If the sites are added, only the frequencies need to be entered. More information on the group quick keys will be coming. Save the attached zipped file to your computer and extract. Open the extracted file with FreeSCAN and Upload Programming to your scanner. Highlight ERASE ALL SYSTEMS & SETTINGS before you Start Upload.
