I am thinking I have the wrong Frequencies or something? Or they have something in effect that I can not pick up there signal? The frequencies I have are: 155.4750, 155.7000, and 155.8500 and 154.1450 for Speedway FD. Are those correct? If so, why can I not pick up there signal? What can I do to pick there signal up? I have the PRO 106 Digital Trunking Scanner from Radio Shack.
Once you download the file to the scanner be sure to make sure that ALL attenuation settings are for OFF, thats both Global and Local. This is accomplished by first hitting FUNC ATT until the G is not displayed, then Hitting ATT untill all attenuation is turned off.
Thank-you for the Help, I did what you had said, but could you please tell me what doing that does? What taking off the G and the ATT does? Does it make it to where I the signal comes in clearer or what? Sorry I am NEW, a beginner, to all this new type of scanner.
I know that there are several members in this forum who also have had difficulty receiving MECA transmissions Maybe one of them can offer some advice to you. You may have to get an outside antenna to receive it. I can receive them fine in downtown Indy with a 106 with the RS 800 mhz antenna. The upside is it sounds like your 106 is set up correctly.
If it's any help I have had Speedway police officers and firefighters tell me they have the same issues with their radios. Sometimes moving a foot one direction or another helps...the signal is flaky around Speedway
