I bought this to listen to Mt. Brook PD but I cannot figure out how to program the thing. Is there anyone that would program this for a donation to their favorite charity? Any help would be appreciated.
post file here if ya can .. rename it xxxx.txt also ya can send to puzzle (DOT) ridddle at yahoo (DOT) com and will take a look at it. mean while make sure ya have ALL the frequencies & NOTjust the control channels oops I Isee rwier's file will look at it also.. hmm Which antenna are you using. Th RS 800mhz is highly recommended by most.
Great work!!.. just remember to back up your changes so if ya do mess it it you can go back & reload it .. Experiment is the BEST way to learn!!
GOOD LUCK I have a file for the whole Area to send if ya would like to look at it
Hmm I have never sena mute button on my psr500 ? same radio as the 106 .. Ya mean the ATTenuate button I guess heh
file sentThanks. I'd love to see that file, I'll email you in a few minutes.
The "MUTE" I'm referring to I saw when the radio was plugged into my computer with Win500 launched. I went to the monitor/control tab and started the virtual monitor. If you look below the start button (and next to the RF SQ box) you'll see the "MUTE" box I'm talking about. I noticed that when the radio was on and scanning that box was lit up as if mute was enabled. I don't think it had anything to do with the issue, but I googled "pro-106 muting" and ran across a page that by chance suggested pressing the ATT button.
I have no idea what that attenuation button does but it seems to cut my signal to almost nothing when it's either enabled or disabled (can't tell). I've still got a lot of reading to do but so far this thing has been a blast to tinker with. I'm going to make the drive to Radio Shack to pick up that 800MHz antenna in a few.
Thanks for the continued help.
I'm in the Birmingham/Mtn. Brook area as well (also with a pro 106) and am also trying to get this thing working.
Fortunately I have a cable and win500 so this should be a snap. I download the file provided by rwier, assigned all TSYS objects to scan list 1, and uploaded it to my device. It seems to work properly but I'm not hearing any chatter at all, which seems unusual for a Friday evening.
- Am I ok assigning everything to scan list 1?
- Do I need to adjust the squelch nob at all when scanning in this mode?
Let me know if there's anything I missed or any potential troubleshooting steps I could take to try and get this working.
