In RR FQ table, none of the Control Channels are marked Red or Blue to indicate primary or secondary.
Anyone have info on what C FQs should be programmed into a DMR capable radio to listen in on Shoreham?
Good question cause I am thinking of getting the DMR upgrade for my BCD996P2. I know using my SDR set up, the program will FIND the control channel so it doesn't need to be specifically set. But thats SDR. I am clueless how to deal with DMR in a regular radio. I live too far away from the south coast to hear Shoreham, but there is a very busy commercial 900mhz DMR repeater a few miles from here. I'd like the upgrade in case DMR in the future gets a little more interesting. But I am not too motivated to spend $60 for the upgrade only to hear ambulances and garbage trucks.
I had the freqs in my scanner in conventional mode w/ color code & I can hear traffic every now & then. I now want to program in this trunk system. I use Butel ARC-XT Pro software.
System Type: Do I use the "Mototola", "MotoTRBO" or "DMR" setting ?
Trunk ID Mode: Search (to search & listen to all talk groups)
Trunk Freqs: 153.7625 LCN 1 CC3, 154.0475 LCN2 CC4, 155.2575 LCN3 CC5, 155.6625 LCN4 CC6, 131.310 LCN5 CC7
and I programmed in talk groups 20, 40, 70.
My issue is it's not trunk tracking. I have another scanner on conventional mode, which is hearing traffic, but Not the trunking programmed one. Should I be using another system type (i.e. for TRBO Capacity +) ?
