See that system voice? It says..

APCO-25 Common Air Interface Exclusive

The BCT8 won't handle it. That requires a digital trunktracker to handle. You can read up on all the current models by looking at our wiki main page, go down on the right about 2/3 of the way, look for a yellow box called 'Popular Topics'. Click on 'Digital Trunktrackers'

You should also be aware that many 400 mhz UHF systems are being migrated down to the 380 mhz area. You can see if this system is still active by programming only the red and/or blue freqs, and listening for the characteristic BRAAAAT sound - that's the control channel. If/When this system migrates, you will need a digital trunktracker that can trunk in this range. The BC250, 785, PRO-96 and 2096 CANNOT trunktrack here.
