Ok i live in coalinga CA about 5 mile away from pvsp i looked up the prison in thhe database and found three frequencies 860.26250-858.26250-859.26250. with the first frequence i get the loud sound and it say CNTRL. with the other two freqences i can hear communication in the wall.

My question is the hole prison is only communication with theas three frequence.
All so when i do pick up talking a 5 digit number will come out on the bottom do i need to put these number in my sccner to pick up more frequence in the prison.

please any help with this wolud be appreciated.

Seems that it's a Motorola Type ! system those may be the only 3 frequencies used. Fact is you really only need the one in Red which is the Control Channel.. Problem is to track correctly your going to need the Fleetmap for that system, which the database doesn't have.
Hopefully someone in CA regional forum or even in this one can help you get the system programmed in correctly.

not true, it depends what scanner they have. try the fleet maps from other cdc systems, i think they are all the same

What scanner do you have? I suggest reading the manual. It will probably help you figure out a lot of things about the operation of your radio as well as how these things work.

Obviously not. You have the frequencies, you have the fleet map, you know how to use your radio, what else do you need help on?

Is your scanner a trunking scanner. If not you will not be able to follow the trunking system. You also need to live with in about a mile to a mile and a half from the prison to pick up the transmissions. As it has been asked in the other responces what scanner are you using? Can it be programmed using your computer and software? If you can use your computer to program your scanner I suggest you use it.

Are the frequencies in the scanner in Trunk Mode? If not, that could be part of the problem, since you should not hear the control channel when the frequencies are in trunked mode.

Because I feel like a nice guy I will give you a possible fleet map for this prison. I know that it works at some other facilities.
Try E1P4
It should read
Block 0 and 1 S12
Blocks 2-7 S04
Hope it helps.
