Monitoring the TSA and NAC Code: 1a2h has come up in Search mode. Tried to enter that NAC Code via Sentinel, ARC and manually without any luck as it only allows for 3 digits in the NAC Code section. Any suggestions or this won't be able to be done under the current firmware?

The "h" indicates it's in hex, so enter 1A2.

You can set the preferred display (hex or decimal) in the profile editor. Mine is set to decimal and it displays 3 digit nac codes...

Well yes, yes it is. I'm closer to Midway and the 1a2 NAC Code is what I'm getting here is why I inquired.

RF is RF and the identification and/or verification of known activity/users
helps to keep one from tail-chasing when something is discovered and then later found-out to be one of your regular users :
Um no...why would I want to hear that?

Thanks but no, been in this hobby a long time and have the patience to give something "new" a listen to and figure out I'm not tail-chasing. This was just a programming question that was answered and if their was a way I could close the thread, I would.

They don't close threads in case someone later on has the same question and does a search instead of creating a new thread.

Are you sure those are NAC codes and not talkgroup IDs?

A system is only going to have one NAC code, but can have many talkgroup IDs.

Federal Conventional Frequencies tend to be shared by multiple Agencies/user types.
Especially in Major Metro Areas.

In the Chicago area, they also have Analog users (Low Power) at the Airports.
This one Freq is used by, TSA, CBP and now the new NAC user, each having their own network and repeater sites

Another example
Here in New England we have 163.7000
with $169 as ICE NAT TAC 1
with $200 as ICE RI/SE Mass Vote Scan
