This is true. It happened in Detroit on the state system a few weeks ago.Just keep in mind that technically, any channel can become a control channel. While the listed ones on RR are very accurate, occasionally a system will change a control channel either temporarily or permanently to one not listed as such.
For that reason some people recommend that you program all of the site frequencies into the scanner.
I misread it, sorry. I think I've seen other people request that feature, so I don't think it was included in the new scanners.I don't think it was. I am talking about doing a custom search of frequencies. Say 850-860mhz where it only stops on the Control Channel than starts tracking it. On earlier uniden scanners its labeled as
"Set C-Ch Only" under the custom search options.
Sorry forgot to mention I'm in Australia. It's a P25 x2 trunking network. I have all the frequencies for the site but just not sure how to program it. I programmed it using 'P25 trunk' then entered the CC frequency in 'Frequency' then pressed scan, it then says 'Searching ID'. I guess this is correct?P25 X2. What specific system are you trying to monitor?
(Displays TGID, not site ID.)
