I am trying to monitor several different systems that are listed as Military APCO-25, like the "Joint National Capital Region (Fort AP Hill)" in Caroline County VA., but I can not figure out how to program scanner. There is no offset, spacing etc like other 400 Military trunked systems. I can pick up the digital traffic in conventional model but can not get my scanner to trunk on this system. Any help appeciated.

First off, what scanner are you using? Only the BCD396 and 996 can trunk in this band; other trunktrackers can listen to them as a conventional frequency, but can't trunk them.

This is assuming that the Joint National Capitol Region system is running in the clear; some are not (here in Central Md. we have one that is, one that isn't). If it's running 9600 baud with encryption, forget it - you won't be able to hear anything. That's supposed to be the standard on this band, but evidently it isn't always followed. 73s Mike
