I read the Database from RR and used Proscan to import them into the 536hp, So far its picked up no Etowah City LCNs and searching all night again. I found all 4 Athens City LCNs and this morning when they were doing truck and radio checks zero transmissions picked up on the 536.
Im searching the Starr Mountain site thinking its the highest antenna and main site ? I have found 3/5 so far.
Nothing in the manual or Marks Easy to read guide......
Im sure a setting or something is off, Yes i save every LCN found into the system.

Try this (not verified, but extremely likely to be correct)

And, for all of the sites existing in the DB at the present time (betwee 1 and 34), the RAN is almost certainly equal the Site #. Ex: freqs under Site 7 would have RAN 7

And on Site 7, the freq in the database is wrong (I submitted correction). It is not 461.71855. It's 461.71875

007 (7)
261 452.500
453 461.71875
480 461.8875
696 463.2375
929 464.69375


008 (8)
121 451.625
182 452.00625
744 463.5375
840 464.1375

009 (9)
113 451.575
125 451.65
161 451.875
168 451.91875
298 452.73125

010 (A)
27 451.0375
145 451.775
189 452.05
269 452.55

Would these LCNs be needed for the TRX-1 to monitor this system?

Not for the TRX-1 (or it's sibling the TRX-2).

Those two models do not actually track the system. They only check each frequency entered to see if a talkgroup you programmed is active, and if so, receive that radio traffic. If you have a wild card in the system, you would also hear talkgroups that you did not enter, but you'd only see the TGID, since it is not a programmed talkgroup with a text tag.

The Uniden scanners, with the NXDN upgrade do need the LCN, as they actually track the system and can follow a specific talkgroup. If the system is lightly loaded, not a lot of users or frequencies, the TRX series might be satisfactory, even though they do not track the system. For more active systems, numerous users and considerably more transmissions, the TRX scanners might miss specific conversations, whereas the Uniden's have no, or few problems.
