They're listed in the databaseAnyone know what settings I need to hear both on an SD S200?
You can just append Terrell from the main database to a Favorites list in Sentinel. It's a standard P25 Phase II system, nothing unusual about it. Some talkgroups are still using Phase I (that's the D in the mode column), others Phase II (mode T).Anyone know what settings I need to hear both on an SD S200? I'm about 10 miles from Terrell and 20 from Forney. The radio is still set at the factory settings. I'm using a discone antenna 35' up.
There's no real advantage to putting them in separate lists. You can turn the individual system on or off with a system quick key if both are in the same parent list. Or, of course, if you prefer them separated, then toggle their respective lists on or off.I used Sentinel to program the scanner. Both are in separate favorite lists. Guess I can delete what I have and start over in case I missed something.
If you are reasonably close (in range), you should not have a problem. I can hear Terrell & Forney here at home, about 5 miles southwest of downtown Dallas. That's inside the house, not using an external antenna on the roof. Are you in Kaufman, Rockwall, or Dallas County? Approximate location ? (like a reference point of some kind, highway intersection, or known business that is not far away).OK, this is driving me crazy. I have everything in the data base in the scanner. I get no signal from Terrell running analyse. I even added some 800mhz frequencies I found. Am I in a dead spot?
I'd agree, sounds like an antenna, or coax (if using any), problem. Since you can hear them when in your vehicle, using the OEM antenna, there's nothing wrong with your programming.I'm about to narrow it down to my 10 year old antenna, and/or I'm ina dead spot. Went to town earlier with the scanner using the supplied antenna. Perfect reception. I used Sentinel to program it.' then I went to Radio Reference and made sure the settings were correct.
I live about 10 miles east of the tower, Hwy 80 and County Road 351. Range is set at 30 miles. I'm about a mile NE of the Elmo tower and Kaufman County is as clear as it was on VHF.
Since it worked in the car I'm thinking I need to replace my antenna. Right now no one is talking, no one talks when you want them to. It's still on the collapsable antenna. I tried it all the way down, and now it's extended.
I miss the days of enter the frequencies and hit scan. Life was so much better then.
Sounds good.Did the antenna switch today. Used a Tram mobile antenna with the groundplane adapter. It's on a seperate mast about five feet below the discone. Getting four bars and clear reception on both systems. Analog reception has improved.
The old discone just became the back up and TV antenna,
