When you run the LCN Finder, and want to save whatever it found, look at the on screen prompt.My question is, when using the LCN finder and it finds them, what is the next step or is it automatic? Also it says found 1/3 after several hours. Doesn't seem right .This is regarding a DMR Hytera XPT system
When you run the LCN Finder, and want to save whatever it found, look at the on screen prompt.
It tells you to press the Function Key, plus the System key to exit. If you resume scanning without using that set of key strokes, or simply turn the scanner off (or it loses power), the findings will bot be saved.
When you start the Finder on a system's site, it resets all of the LCN settings to zero (0), so if you already had one entered, then ran the Finder a second time, it will reset the one you designated back to zero.
For the Finder to work, you do need some system activity. There needs to be enough radio traffic to use more than just the first LCN. But, on the other side, if there is way too much going on, it may not identify the LCN's correctly. If the system is not very busy, then likely one one channel is being used. For some systems, I've had to leave the LCN Finder running on a specific system for quite a long time, in one case for several days, in order for all LCN's to be found.
It's also possible that only one frequency is being used, even if there are additional frequencies on the license. One thing you can try is to enter your three frequencies into a One Channel Trunked system (also called an OFT, for One Frequency Trunked system). Set each frequency into individual sites in other words, each signal is treated as a separate site). Be sure that you set the system up as ID Search, and also be sure to create a 'Department'. If you do not currently have any identified talkgroups established, then enter a 'dummy', or place-keeper TGID, like TGID 1.
That's not going to tell you anything about the LCNs, but it will let you see if more than just the LCN frequency you've identified is being used.
After running the LCN Finder, did you follow the display prompt to exit it correctly?Once a LCN is found and saved Is there a way to see it in the favorites editor.....I saved several that were found and then did FTP Scanner read and didn't see the LCN change from 0. Also what is the difference if no LCN is entered.
What system are you trying to monitor?Great Info. THANK YOU!
I found 4 0f 6 and then added to site config in pro Scan so I assume they will load as any other info on that list going forward .....Yes?
I also understand any LCN listed in RR is not compatible due to the SDS using a different format which I can't recall at the moment....
before posting the 1st question I didn't notice that the whole post wasn't showing.....until rereading it again.
You may be thinking of scanners where the LCN had to match the channel number in the bank.Is the order of chan important......I remember some of my old TYPE 1 and 2 Motorola 800mhz work, I believe the CC had to be in some order.
CC3 is what the SDS200 Procan History logging shows.. so based on the SDS200 displaying LCN 5 who knows.I'd add the Color Code if you know it to be correct.
You could add that frequency to the site thrice once as LCN5 and once as LCN16, and again as LCN33 just to see what happens, and cover your bases.
