Well, if a client is using the freq. the control system assigns the freq. that I do not have in my list, than I would miss my talkgroup voice. That is my understanding...I think part of it is the fact that most scanners only need the Control Channel frequencies.
I hadn't really noticed until you mentioned the update.
That's exactly correct. All you need are the control (and alternate control) channels. The data on the currently active control channel includes the frequencies of the other (voice) channels, and the XT scanners use that information to tune them automatically. You don't need to program those frequencies into the scanner. That's why the mode is called "Control Channel (CC) Only" mode. Only the control channels need to be programmed in.I have a 996xt/15xt, so are you saying I only need the control channels and the control channels tells the scanner what freq to go to. I dont need to program the 18 channels under the list ?
I first heard about it when I was reading the manual of my first trunking radio (BC780XLT) to learn how to program it for trunked radio systems. It had a whole page entitled "Control Channel Only Mode".I must have missed this years ago. Can't believe this... It's a PITA to have programmed this... I assume RCS is programmed this way too ? Where did I miss reading this... ? I'm dumfounded
I guess your correct. I just can't believe I missed this memo.. It will be so easy to add systems, now. So there is absolutely no gain programming the channels since the CC handles that part ? I read marks scanner , manuals, posts and still missed this. I'm glad MarkB brought it up. My arcxt files has tons of hours programming all the channels. Very very interesting Brandon.Yes RCS and other Motorola systems only need the cc freqs.
You might have been thinking everything had to be entered since the old Riverside County EDACS system required all freqs to be programmed. EDACS and LTR needed the freqs programmed into the radio in proper LCN order.

All that pain, and still no gain.I read marks scanner , manuals, posts and still missed this. I'm glad MarkB brought it up. My arcxt files has tons of hours programming all the channels.
