Ensnared,Well, I am also in this same boat regarding lack of radio response from Oncor. I've loaded these into the system. Oncor has a huge EDACS system. The problem I've encountered is attempting to program a multi-site radio system like this. I've not had much luck. From what I understand, you must put a different TSY for each location along with the various talk groups. In essence, I have not heard anything either. I still have this system programmed to no avail.
Ensnared,Open or search mode? Ok, I suppose that I could do that, but I will have to read how. I've not mastered that part of this radio yet. Thanks.
Ensnared,HIEGTX: Bravo. I heard my first Oncor transmission. Thanks so much. It came up as a Wildcard; therefore, I pressed store. Hopefully, it will store this into the Oncor TSY group where it will show up again. I think I did this correctly.
For both of you responding in this reply, I don't understand why it is necessary to check "EDACS-N invert." I don't know what this function is about, but I will attempt to research it. I will continue to try capturing these TG's. Thanks for the help.
To add just a bit more, I'm not really sure why the GRE manufactured scanners (PSR-500/-600, the ones GRE makes for Radio Shack, the Pro-106/-197) require the "invert" setting for EDACS Narrow". I do know that previous GRE manufactured models could not handle narrowband systems at all. For the Uniden scanners, no "invert" setting is needed, nor is one even an option on the scanner. (Since it's not needed, why put one in there?). Obviously, there's a difference in the firmware as to how the scanners processors decode the systems. As Russel indicated, the invert tells the scanner to read the data "backwards".EDACS-N Invert tells the radio to invert the way it handles the control channel for EDACS narrowband systems. The control channel is sending out a series of 1's and 0's. The invert function tells the radio to interpret those the other way - instead of 1's and 0's, interpret the signals as 0's and 1's. I hope that's clear as mud.
