What am i doing wrong.. Lee County Law Enforcement and EMS/FIRE is silent.. no FMPD nothing..

I put all the control channels in.. just the main ones.. not all.. and I also put in the ID codes.

I am using a trunk tracker 4 handheld 396t

Still silent

Im using the butel arc396 software to program.. what type of system should I be selecting? and what control channels should I use>?



Thanks for your help!

last niight

i have a 396t and heard them fine last night and yep today nothing
thy doing a search 851-854 and then 854-866 and see if you can see the control channel
set the search for control channel only and wait till you see ------- flashing in the display
the top line will say LEE COUNTY if you find it i think i am too far away or too close to north port using 853.7875 so if lee was using 853.775 i will not see it.
after that you will need to set up a system to hear them.

Thanks for your help. But I live in collier county and I can't pick up lee. I am there about once a month for work and need to monitor police and fire for my line of work. Any other ideas for me to program this from collier county?

Try listening to each of the P25 frequencies listed in the RR database (also see attached jpg file) instead of scanning. My guess is Lee County is on the P25 system now. Or if you are programming by computer... just download the P25 system from RR.

LEE COUNTY

I created a freescan 2.16a file. Sorry do not have arcxt. Its everything in lee county . I agree, possibly they have gone to p25 so i have left every system in search mode. If they have switched to something, this should show up. I have groups programmed so if you get any hits, and a group description does not show, you may have located where they have moved. Standard zip file is attached.

I have Lee County up and running. But there is a terrible noise over the audio, and multiple deputies are complaining of "radio issues". The noise is more prevalent on some frequencies than on others. Not much heard yet on the P25 system. I have made no changes to the scanner. Perhaps there is a sever maintenance issue they are dealing with.

A friend of mine recently had basicly the same problem, I was trying to help him over the internet (VOIP),
wound doing a CPU reset and cured his problem.

We tried for 2 days and all was needed was a CPU reset, even used different programs still the same problem.

Try a reset not sure how to on a 396t.

This is not a scanner issue. I can hear the same noise on another commercial 800MHz receiver. San Carlos FD is also complaining of radio issues. Definitely a problem with the site. Noise does not seem to be present on the P25 system, which I am also monitoring (though decoding is a bit choppier than normal).

Here in st peters, mo the city pd had trunking problems recently and the went to 851.0125, 851.5187, 852.0125, 852.5187, 853.0125
all simplex non trunking. Do a search on 851-853 and see if you hear anything.

If you are using an original 396T with old firmware, it's not going to fly. Assuming the db is correct, it rebanded - and the old firmware won't deal with it. You need to update your firmware

See my answer on a similar topic in the scanner software programming forum...Mike
