Hello,

Using Sentinel with a BCD 436

Trying to understand how to set up WX in Sentinel.

Not too sure of the meaning of FIPS1... thru 8
and SAME1... 4

What freq's do I want to put in these boxes ?
Live in the Boston Metro West area.

After downloading to radio, how do I call them up ?
Are all of them scanned, or would I select a particular one ?

Thanks,
B.

The FIPS Codes are the codes you get from the NWS for the county you are in. The radio decodes them and if a code is sent that matches the code you entered the radio will open.

The freqs are determined when you go into Weather mode.

FIPS 1 thru 8 allows you to enter multiple county codes.
