Greetings all, i am in the process of compiling my desired ARMER scan list on a RS Pro 106 with WIN500. My questions is do I need to load up all the alternate control channels? Will I have any issues if I just load up the designated primary channels? Any input would be appreciated!

98% of the time the red frequency will do you just fine, but occasionally some sites use the alternate.

I personally don't have the alternates in since my travels can lead my through about 40-50 different sites in one day if i am working my part time job and the alternate for one, may be the primary for another and it helps to decrease incorrectly identified sites... but if you are staying in a pretty general geographic area (60-80 miles from home), you should be pretty good to program everything in... especially with as easy as the data import from RR is...

Thats what I was wondering, thanks for the input. I don't make it over to the west metro a whole lot and I want to get all my ARMER stuff into one scan list. Apparently WIN500 limits you to 32 control channels per trunked system in 1 scan list? someone please correct me if I'm doing it wrong!...

As listed in the database:

Stillwater Prison Washington Co 854.98750, 856.21250, 857.21250, 859.48750

Let me know if you hear anything. I've considered adding these to my rig but didn't know if they were active.

Thanks!

I haven't seen that site populate yet on nearby control channels (When using UniTrunker) like I do with MCF Lino Lakes. My suspicion is that they have yet to build their system.
