If you think that New Boston may have recently switched to using GATRRS, try using ID Search mode instead of ID Scan. ID Scan will only monitor talkgroups that are programmed, and that are not avoided. ID Search will monitor any active talkgroup on the system, even if not programmed, as long as the TGID is not set as Avoid, and/or is not in a department that is set to Avoid.I have it programmed to the GATRRS trunking system for Bowie County and am still not getting them. 2 weeks ago I was able to pick the police and fire dept on conventional system. I still can get some fire but no police.
Did you add a wildcard to your GATRRS system in your Pro-651? While there are, currently, no New Boston talkgroups listed on GATRRS, that does not guarantee that New Boston is not using the system. Unless someone identifies the talkgroups in use, and submits them to the database, they will not show up under the system. If they are using GATRRS, but no talkgroups currently in the database, a wildcard will help you hear them. Once you start seeing them, you can listen and determine what each TGID appears to be used for. Be sure & submit any new information you find to the database.I have enterd these as well. This is not working either. I have checked the database thinking maybe there might be a recent update, but none. The conv. frequency is the same as its always been. I do appreciate all of the advice as I do not know alot about scanners and frequencies. This is really strange to me. Any other advice or ideas would be appreciated. I am using a Pro-651 Radio shack scanner. Thanks in advance.
You are, at least, hearing Bowie County, and Texarkana?Yes sir I have it programmed with the wildcard. I am hearing Bowie county / Texarkana. I have programmed the frequencies as conventional also. The control channel has static that can't be taken away with the squelch. I just tried this. Haven't heard anything on the others yet but still listening.... hopefully
OKI am not using any
Just a thought:Yes sir I have it programmed with the wildcard. I am hearing Bowie county / Texarkana. I have programmed the frequencies as conventional also.

If you are using the group wildcard, in addition to the public safety agencies (cities, as well as county, Law enforcement, Fire, EMS, etc), you should, at times, also hear non-public safety talkgroups, such as public works, utilities, and others. You would hear these, using the wildcard, unless you have specifically locked them out, either from the beginning, or when they pop-up via the wildcard. Are you hearing any of these?I was listening to the scanner last night and new boston came on the conventional channel I have always used. I heard the officer ask dispatch " why are you not using the other radio?" she replied " I tried but I could not reach anyone" . They were on this channel unti I went to bed. I am listening this morning and nothing. Could they have somehow moved to phase 2 that I cannot recieve with this scanner? I have searched conv. frequencies and used wildcard in trunking system for this area. nothing. Thank You in advance.
