First, ask the mods to move this post to the Ohio state forum.I have a Pro 197 and need to switch from 800 MHz band to 700 MHz band for new frequencies how do I go about this? It is P25 system.
fredva, I'm sure you meant Win500, and Arc500. There is some X-TDMA TGID's on the new MARCS P-25 Phase II system. But, there is still a great amount just Phase I Digital.Switching from the 800 Mhz MARCS system to the 700 Mhz MARCS-IP system is not a switch to Phase II. Phase II is something that may happen later on the MARCS-IP system, but there are no reports of Phase II being used now.
Do you have software for programming your PRO-197, such as WIN96, ARC96, or PSREDIT?
Just an FYI, Phase 1 or Phase II has nothing to do with the Frequency.So you are saying phase I is 700mhz capable? How do I program my scanner to it? I have Butel software that came with scanner.
Maybe nothing. It might be that there isn't much traffic on the sites (towers) you are monitoring.Set up P25 Auto and loaded control frequencies from RR database. Still don't receive anything. What did I do wrong?
As bigbud42010 said, MARCS-IP (Project 25 System) does not require (use) rebanded tables. Sorry I forgot to mention that.yes I have 800/900 rebanded and they worked fine until switch to 700s. I isolated Marcs-IP to a separate scanlist and have4-5 bars on signal. imanually scrolled thru freqs. and they are there but I still hear nothing. Any ideas would be appreciated
Yes, that's what I meant. I had just been reprogramming my Dad's PRO-2096, which Win96 and Arc96 supports, and that was the software that was in my head. Sorry for any confusion.fredva, I'm sure you meant Win500, and Arc500. There is some X-TDMA TGID's on the new MARCS P-25 Phase II system. But, there is still a great amount just Phase I Digital.
