Back when I was getting out of the radio business in 2008 they were starting to swap out some of their 800 mhz radios due to some kind of deal with Nextel needing their frequencies or something like that. I really don't remember the specifics.
I'm getting normal voice traffic on the listed channels for that site on the database page, but after the listed frequencies drops after a conversation, the scanner tends to stop on 863.5625 & 862.3875. After that I can’t receive any more traffic. This goes with all talkgroups in the system. When stopped on these frequencies, I get a VC (Voice Channel), frequency, talkgroup, and the display alternates erratically... with no voice. It seems these frequencies are part of the system, and totally messing with me.
So, what am I doing wrong with programming Smyrna TRS? Is this scanner not truly "rebanded?"
With past experience programming the PRO-96, I have never had this problem. Not too familiar with this PRO-163. I'll be glad when I'm finished programming them.
