iam trying to get the frequency for the 3rd precinct and the bayshore/brentwood fd in suffolk county new york iam not sure which band setting i need on the scanner..retired law enforcement..need to stay in touch with whats going on around me
With regard to the bandplan, I stated in my post that one wouldn't be needed for the 396T and 996T models, but I wasn't sure if the XT models require one. At this point, we don't know what model he has. And, with regard to the Suffolk County TRS, he stated that he also wants to monitor the 3rd Precinct (Police) and they are on the County Trunk System.I doubt that a special bandplan would be needed for the Suffolk system. Even the 396T and 996T could handle this system without much difficulty.
However, both Bayshore and Brentwood appear to be using conventional frequencies, according to the database, so it might not be necessary to even program the Suffolk trunk if that's all that is needed. However, a couple of questions in the NY forum as to whether they have migrated to the trunk system is in order.
