Hi Everyone,

I'm not having any good luck here receiving "I-Calls" for the NJSP Troop-C 800mhz TRS System. I am using Butel's AR250 Pro Software with my BC796D Scanner and I do have I-Call checked off for the global settings in all Banks/Talkgroups in the software and I programmed in .000000 as the wild-card Talkgroup setting for a 700000 Motorola Type-II Talkgroup. What am I doing wrong here? Or, does the NJSP Troop-C even use I-Calls currently? Any feedback and help would certainly be appreciated. Thank you.

I had a 796D and was successful in monitoring i-calls on NJSP north and central systems. I use 700000 for i-calls. Problem with i-calls on NJSP system is you will hear the call boxes reporting in all the time.

I am having a similar problem with my BC785D with the Ocean County Trunk System. When the fire departments switched over to the trunk system, I was told that they use I-Call. I have the I-Call function turned on and I programmed 700000 into one of the ID Lists along with the talk groups. Occasionally I will see one appear on the screen but I don't get any audio.

Guys,

What I've noticed is that since the system upgrade was completed back near the start of the year, I haven't heard ANY I-calls on the system at all any more.

I turned it on in my 396, and let it fly in ID SEARCH mode for over an hour last weekend, and nothing... :confused:

Hello again,

Thanks everyone for the great feedback and information for programming I-Calls in to my BC796D Scanner! Well stupid me! I was doing some more reading in the forums here and I happened to notice that I did not have this I-Call freq. of 866.0125mhz programmed in to the scanner, with the rest of the (14) frequencies that I had for the NJSP TRS Troop-C System. Which are: 856.7125, 857.2125, 857.7125, 858.2125, 858.7125, 859.2125, 859.7125, 860.2125, 860.7125, 866.6125, 867.2125, 867.6625, 868.1375, 868.5125. So, now that I've also programmed in 866.0125 in with the rest of them and having 700000 as the Talkgroup Wildcard, all is working AOK now! All is great now and I'm hearing all if the I-Calls! So thanks again to everyone for all of the expert help and everyone have a great 4th of July Holiday!

P.S., I have not tried this out yet for the Ocean County NJ TRS yet, so I don't know about that one as of now. But please keep me posted too on all of this I-Call stuf! Thanks!
