Hello All, I need help finding all the LCN channels and companies on 483.7625 repeater in McKinney Collin County, TX. I have heard McKinney ISD buses, and other companies on the 483.7625 freq. I know they are more channels or freqs. to the LCN system. Please help with this information. Thanks, Danny N5VKM

I believe I almost have these system mapped out. I figured out today that 483.7625 has traffic for 1-16 (I think 1-16-177 is the McKinney ISD Buses as it sounds like them).

I went back to my old LTR Analyzer notes and found 461.1750 and 463.4000 running traffic for 1-16-077 as well and according to the licenses both belong to Teletouch in McKinney.

So here is the map for the system..
461.1750 is LCN 1
463.4000 is LCN 6
483.7625 would be either LCN 8 or 16. I am guessing 16 as the bulk of the traffic for 16 I am hearing here.

The only one I am missing is most likely 8.

The other frequencies licensed to Teletouch in McKinney that could belong to this system are,
461.2750, 461.7250, 461.8750, 463.2250, 463.3000, 463.6000. 463.7250, 463.8000, 464.0250, 464.0750, 464.1500, 464.2500, 464.3000, 464.3500, 464.8000, 483.7875.

So one of these is most likely the missing channel.

Thank you for reseaching the system. I knew did not have all the channels on the system. I only had one channel the 483.7875. A lot of the McKinney ISD bus radio traffic was on that freq. I am glad you updated the system on the data. I hope it will be on my download this Saturday for my GRE PSR-800 library update. I have one question can you setup system with company ids if on a control channel.

You're welcome.. I don't understand what your question is.

Will your database update be on the update for GRE scanners this Saturday. I use the weekly database update for my GRE PSR-800 scanner.
Sorry uhm I am not sure. It all depends on when the database admins add it in. That could day a couple days or more depending on how many entries there are before mine.

Guys, I have mbstone's submission in my cue to add to the DB. It's been a hectic week, so apologies for the delay. Before I edit the DB, I was hoping for some clarification on a couple items:

1. Matt, are you looking at WPKJ912 when you refer to a license in this thread? I see the freqs you submitted there, but none of the freqs currently listed on the Teletouch McKinney DB entry. Have you found a different license besides that one?

2. I see that both 461.1750 and 463.400 are listed on the Teletouch (Dallas 3) DB entry with the same LCNs you submitted for McKinney. Is it possible you were hearing the Dallas tower instead of McKinney?

Hopefully that makes sense.

Musicman,

It looks like I messed up when entering the last frequency when I submitted it.. they should be

461.1750 (1) WPKJ912
463.4000 (6) WPKJ912
463.7250 (8) WPKJ912
483.7625 (16) WPKV979

That Teletouch in Dallas looks to match what I am hearing.. But this system is definitely in McKinney. We are hearing McKinney ISD school buses on one of the tg's. I am thinking whoever originally posted it just put it in as Dallas as they thought it was Dallas due to the 2 frequencies listed as both in Dallas (and McKinney). I was running LTR Analyzer and got the first 3 frequencies and the active LCN's and active tg's which included the McKinney ISD buses. The only one at the I was missing was LCN 16 which happen to be the one the OP was asking about and matched the LCN of the missing one.

Thanks, Matt for your work on this system! I've updated with your changes and left the existing 463.3750 in the LCN 19 spot. Let me know if you see any additional edits that are needed.

Musicman,

Thanks for updating this but LCN 19 is not part of this system. Could you remove that one from this system.

Thanks.

Will do. I've been running the LCN analyzer for this system on my HP2 and it looks like that frequency (463.9750) might be at LCN 13 actually. Can anyone else confirm?
