This may be off topic and resposted but I need some help. I have a 396t and I've tried and I've searched but I can not seem for the life of me to get Buckley trunk to work. Can my radio handle it? Is there a trick that I have figured out? I know when I search the 400 area I will get voice. If its on control channel only it just shows the ids. When I was in California scanning I go the border patrol on 300 something and it would work on control channel only. Although most of it was encrypted. So any step by step help would be a help. And if the radio can't do it well, I'm already looking in to the gre radios..
Thank you much for any inforamtion
Jeff

Can you post the database link to the system you are refering to?

And as far as GRE vs. uniden, they don't really have any basic functionality differences. Meaning if one can't listen to a certain system, the other will not be able to either.

However, this sounds more like a user error issue. Please find the system you are refering to and we will go from there. And.... It's 00:02 now.... So goodnight.... :D

Since this is an old school Motorola "TYPE II" digital system you need to set the table manually in the scanner.

Motorola VHF/UHF or Motorola UHF (depending on the radio's menu)
Base Freq: 406.0000
Space: 12.5
Offset: 380

Some scanners may require additional information such as:

CH LOW 380
CH HI 680
OFFSET 380

This system is NOT Buckley Air Force Base exclusive. Other Federal Agencies share this system as well. You will hear encryption used on occasion.

For the Uniden Scanners, as scanlist suggested, you have to set up a custom band plan. Here's what I use on my 396XT:
Band Plan 1: Base Freq (lower): 406.000, Base Freq (upper): 409.7375, Offset: 380, Spacing: 12.5 kHz
Band Plan 2: Base Freq (lower): 410.000, Base Freq (upper): 410.9875, Offset: 680, Spacing: 12.5 kHz

For a PSR-500/600 or PRO-106/197, it would be:
#00: Lo Chan: 380, Hi Chan: 679, Offset: 380, Base Freq: 406.000, Step: 12.5
#01: Lo Chan: 680, Hi Chan: 759, Offset: 680, Base Freq: 410.000, Step: 12.5


The second table is needed for when frequencies above 410.000 MHz are used. The system has a few, but they're only used when it's real busy, which isn't very often.

For Buckley traffic, the Cherry Creek site is the best one to use, which uses control channels of 406.9875, 408.275, 409.025, or 410.175.
