I downloaded the Sarasota system into my BCD996XT and I get a control channel on 853.6125(Osprey), but for some reason it will not lock onto the control channel while scanning. I have it loaded as a rebanded site with the preloaded band plan settings. I am in Clearwater. Is there a custom band plan that I need?

Thanks

And what kind of signal strength are you showing on the Osprey tower? I wouldn't expect for you to be able to get strong enough of a signal to lock on all the way from Clearwater. These TRS are designed for reliable performance between 20-30 miles. Clearwater is closer to 50 miles away.

I'm getting 2-3 bars...I can hear the chainsaw sound...but maybe it's not a strong enough signal to decode.

Also you might want to try the North Tower as it is 10 miles closer to Clearwater, 853.7625 is major control channel.

Well I figured out what was wrong....I think it is bleed over from Pinellas P25 TRS. The next channel up is 853.625 which is a control channel for Pinellas P25.

Thanks for all the help anyways.
