Trying to get Westar Energy programmed into my HP-1 I have created a favorite for the Olathe system but does not seem to work? I have downloaded in several times with no success...is something wrong with the load ? Any insight would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

I have to wonder if they are actively using the radio system or are using other means (mobile computers?) to communicate. I don't normally listen to them, but on New Year's Day we lost power for about 4 hours. During that time I turned on the Westar bank and tried to find out what was going on. I just have the Newton tower in the bank for a system, along with the listed Newton talkgroups and the wildcard. During that 4 hours which involved 3-4 trucks being sent to my alley to replace a fuse then a transformer, I heard only 1 brief series of transmissions on the Wichita DSO talkgroup as the arriving crews were coordinating how to get their big boom truck to the pole. In the past they have been much more active.

I'm not getting any signal on the KC metro area towers. Not even a system ID.

I can get the control channel but no activity on the Westar system ? I was able to hear KCP&L their system this morning by searching IDs on their system . Can anyone else in Johnson County, KS hear the Westar 900 Mhz system with any radio traffic ?

What site/freq are you getting a Westar control channel on in Johnson County. I am still getting none, the only CC's I get up in the 900's are from KCPL. On the Westar System I could hear the following sites:

KCMO
WYCO
OP
Olathe

No longer getting anything from any of them.

I just heard some activity on the Westar Energy trunked Olathe site talking about breakers on an address in Lawerence, KS TG 12848 and that is a recognized one on the list. I had to program another scanner since the Radio Reference load does not seem to work and has never worked for me....the RR Westar load something must be corrupted since I have never been to load it and get it to work It appears just limited activity until something happens in the Westar coverage area.......any other information about this system please post. Thanks ! I had to reprogram my old BC246T to be able to hear the Olathe site ???
