Chase doesn't work with the PSR500 - but you don't need it anyway. You've programmed the site into the PSR500 with a non-existent talk group. When operating in trunked mode, the radio follows the control channel for you.
The Chase feature places the radio in Tune mode. Not sure why but sometimes the PSR500 drops out of decoding control information in Tune mode. Aside from this issue - the radio takes a bit longer than I like to acquire the control channel. The scan logic has already moved on the next channel before the radio starts producing data.
You can scan the control channels as conventional channels. This works well enough for older, bank oriented non-trunking scanners tapped to provide discriminator audio. The downside is sometimes one of the channels happens to be carrying a voice call. The signal radio pauses on the voice channel expecting control data. Eventually the call drops and the radio resumes scanning.
I don't know if the PSR500 produces trunking data when told to scan a conventional channel.
You can reliably use the Chase feature with the RTL based USB sticks.
It probably works for other discriminator tapped models.Do you only have to select CHASE for a RTL USB stick to follow (find) the control if the system is populate with the frequencies?
