I am listening to Washington County but can't pick up the smaller agencies like Farmington, Prairie Grove, or Lincoln, or even Sheriffs office. Using BCD325P2 in ID Search mode. Can anyone help? Thanks.
Looking at the database page for Washington County, I see this system as well: Washington County Dept. of Emergency Management Trunking System, Fayetteville, Arkansas - Scanner FrequenciesYes, I am monitoring ARWIN in ID Search mode, but have also set up a conventional system to try to pick up the smaller towns without hearing any. I asked a local police officer (Prairie Grove) what frequency they used and was told they were part of a system that pooled their frequencies, so I have to wonder if the RR database is up-to-date.
You're correct in that no scanner will track a Passport system. However, one of the air medical companies here in the DFW metro area (CareFlite) used to use a passport system. While I could not trunk track it, entering the frequencies as conventional channels allowed me to keep track of what was going on. Just use a channel delay of one second or less, so that the scanner does not get hung up on the data bursts.It's an LTR Passport system (per the database, at least) and I'm not sure but that may make a difference in how it's programmed. In fact, a search yielded "no scanner can track a Passport system" posts in many places, but I am not sure if that is still accurate. I do know that LTR Passport is different than just a regular LTR system.
Hopefully someone else will come along and confirm this or correct it.
EDIT: Per the wiki on this website, the 325P2 will track LTR Standard only, among many other types.
Thanks to all for your expert help. Any further comments are welcome, but I guess I'll just stick to AWIN for now and try to wade through FCC.gov for conventional frequencies for the Emergency Management system. Regards all.
