Is there anything in the database that provides all the info required to set up a MSP talkgroup? Something that has the ID, control channels, and tags altogether?

What type of scanner are you trying to program? The info in the MA database for MSP is in good shape, but we may have a ready-made file available for download at Scan New England in the downloads section. Link is in my signature. Not trying to steer you away from RR, but it just might be an easy way to get you started.

If you are using PSREdit, WIn500, etc...and have a RR subscription (looks like you do) you can easily download the necessary bits right through the software. I mainly use PSREdit and found it to be pretty straight forward -- especially after an hour or two of tinkering.

You could also try out the files that Scott mentioned.

If you're programming directly on the scanner...well...yuck! :)

Scanner is.a gre310, and I program it with arc310 with all of MSP but I'm looking for specific C/C's for my area, instead of A-PTL-1 I want specific objects like troop A-1 A-2 A-3 etc....

A1, A2, A3, etc would be different barracks within a troop (Troop A). The database listings on either site have the breakdown for Talkgroup A-PTL-1 and A-PTL-2 as to which barracks uses which TGID.

Just an observation too, the RR database import in the ARC software doesn't have the Eastern MA Simulcast listed as a TSYS site
