Check to see if you can receive weather and other freqs first.

What happens if you do a system hold on starcom21?

Starcom is state-wide , where are you as hear in the Chicago area one tower T102-So Ch Hts has been on and off in last 24 hrs due to WX.....See the Scom freqy list on this web site and find closest tower to your area and install the CC's, must be close to the control channels in red and blue....

ALWAYS have the entire system in your favorite list, not just one site. If a site goes down, you can still hear traffic from other site(s).

Police district is not the same as a system site. A system site can cover multiple districts, or vice versa, depending on topography.

Make sure you have all site frequencies or each site in and not just the control channel frequency. Biggest issue I've seen. Control channel changes and suddenly people can't figure out why they're not getting anything. Having all of them solves that problem.

Depending on where you are in LaSalle Co., you should be able to pick up towers from Morris, Ohio, Streator, Ottawa, LaSalle, and Providence. Make sure you have ALL of the freqs programmed for each site. You should pick them up fine.
