im trying to program 156.14 into my pro 2055 and it keeps going to 156.135 or 156.1425 how do i change the step so i can get in 156.14???

it says in the manual that for 137-174 it has 5, 6.25, 7.5, or 12.5

You actually can't they are fixed, the listed steps for 137-174 are what is used within that range. The 156.135 wont make a difference in reception.

What agency are you tryng to monitor? 156.140 is not a valid VHF frequency, which is why the 2055 defaults to 156.135 or 156.1425, whch are the closest FCC assigned frequencies in the US.

nothing in Dundee, Sleepy hollow uses 159.18 simplex, that is all that is listed under Dundee, township of,
E&W explain, Elgin, city of uses 159.18 as well as others
do the same search on the FCC link I posted this time in the name box input Elgin, city of state IL
If you only want public safety in the service group box scroll to PW
click on any link to see what is there. 5 hits 43 frequencies between them.
The FCC database is fairly easy to use, you will get with practice.

That is a misprint which was propagated through the internet. There are many errors around the internet, usually because someone first posted the wrong frequency due to a typographical error. Try that link I posted, that should be a better idea of what it is. In browsing that document it shows that frequency but I would bet it is a typo. Same in the listing on the .pdf file for Fireground C 154.55, what is the real frequency?
