Hi. I am a frustrated Unitrunker occasional user who has great difficulties with Unitrunker.
This is not to say that I do not like Unitrunker, I am just spoiled with Trunk 88 and the creator of it does a great job in keeping us up to date and helping us, Nonetheless:

I would like to monitor the following systems on Unitrunker
Metrolinx (Formerly GO Transit) Trunking System, Golden Horseshoe Area, Ontario - Scanner Frequencies

This system is a pure P25 system. Although the scope shows that there is a signal the Health shows it as decoding it at 1 or 0. I am using a Pro2045 tapped scanner.

Am I missing something or doing something wrong?

My second question:

My home region (county) uses a EDACS system:
Halton Region Trunking System, Halton Region, Ontario - Scanner Frequencies

Occasionally they change control channels (I am monitoring the Burlington site #3.) When this hapenns it starts to monitor on unitrunker in a new system? This can be a drag. Do I have to creat different systems to follow for each control channel in the event that it switches?

TIA And merry christmas and/or happy holidays.

Eric

I was reading this the other day, it may help with one of your questions. I don't know if it works, I have no Edacs systems near me to monitor.

Thank You Highpockets. It does help.


Do you use Uni on any P25 systems?

Thats the one I really want to monitor.

I get no signal strenth using Uni even though my tapped scanner gets it perfectly

I monitor one P25 UHF system with no problems with Unitrunker, but, I use the PSR 600, so, I don't have an answer for you on that one. I'm sure someone will jump in with suggestions. :)
