Dan,Downloaded your file several times but can`t find it. Can you help me. I have both scanner programs.
Is it not where your browser puts all things you download? It varies from computer to computer and or browser to browser but where ever you told your browser puts all things? In Firefox its under Tools, Options, General and look for "Save files too" you can change it to where you want. I am sure IE is the same way but I do not use it.Downloaded your file several times but can`t find it. Can you help me. I have both scanner programs.
That file is exactly what I needed to see that my (BCD996XT) system was programmed wrong. I had it setup for a 800 mhz instead of a P25. Been a month now trying to figure out what was wrong.I've also been working on an ARMER file for the entire state. It's broken up into different systems by region, with some talkgroups duplicated between them. It's mainly a framework for the sites, the talkgroups (mainly in the metro) need a LOT of work:
I threw it here: bold98.org/temp/radio/armer-freescan.zip
Thanks!Here is my updated Freescan file for Unidens. Works with 396T/XT and 996T/XT.
I've had this almost done for a while now and I think I have it good to go now.
Here's what is all included:
Hennepin PSAPs - Bloomington, Eden Prairie, Edina, Hopkins, Minnetonka, Richfield, St Louis Park, Golden Valley, MSP Airport PD and Fire
St Paul (Ramsey County system but I programmed their talkgroups separately)
MN Metro (City Center) - State Patrol, Metro EMS, MNDOT, BCA, DNR, Metro Transit
Cambridge/North Branch (Not many talkgroups on this system yet)
Central MN - St Cloud and Wright, Stearns, Benton, Kandiyohi Counties
SE MN - Olmsted and Goodhue Counties
Statewide - I programmed all control channels from the entire state in this system, so you should be able to pick something up anywhere in the state if you are in range of an ARMER site.
Ancom (LTR) - Life Link III helicopters and ambulance, Some towing companies and other stuff.
I also programmed EMS, State Patrol, and Interop (PTAC, LTAC, etc) talkgroups across all systems. All systems are below the 200 TG per system limit on the 396T and 996T.
Here is the file:
Now, I am not exactly sure how the DCC does their dispatching, but from what I understand, all Law Enforcement Dispatch would be done on their Police Mains (TGRP's 4300, 4302, 4304). Are the TGRP's you are referencing ID's 4374 and 4398? I would think that those are used for other things like administrative stuff and training or whatever that department wants to use it for, but not really used for Dispatch purposes.First off, thanks for the file! I just purchased a PRO 106 (great radio) and it was a godsend to have these files to upload to the scanner to, as a previous poster pointed out, 'reverse-engineer' the proper programming technique for this scanner.
I have one question I can't seem to resolve, however...
The PRO 106 manual states that you can only have 28 CC frequencies for a system. In the case of your ARMER file, there are 32 frequencies. I have had the scanner for about a week and have been monitoring 24/7 (through WIN500 logging), and I have yet to see my local police (Farmington) active, although I see and hear them responding to calls. When the scanner stops on a Dakota County Police transmission, I have analyzed the TSYS and see all 32 frequencies. The TGRP's assigned to Farmington are programmed into the scanner.
Am I missing, or more likely, misunderstanding something?
Thanks in advance!
That's correct. Farmington PD is dispatched on talkgroup 4302, which is Law Main 2. They are unit numbers 47xx.Now, I am not exactly sure how the DCC does their dispatching, but from what I understand, all Law Enforcement Dispatch would be done on their Police Mains (TGRP's 4300, 4302, 4304). Are the TGRP's you are referencing ID's 4374 and 4398? I would think that those are used for other things like administrative stuff and training or whatever that department wants to use it for, but not really used for Dispatch purposes.
I see that Dakota County TG 4302 has over 200 hits in Win 500. TG's 4374 and 4398 have none. So, based on your invaluable information, Farmington TG's must only be used for local emergencies and the like, whereas Dakota County 4302 is used for 'day-to-day' police calls. I had LED alerts set on my PRO 106 for the Farmington TG's.....other than greatly extending the life of the LED there is apparently little point to that.
