Midlothian, as well as Red Oak, are now on the FWRRS. Have you programmed that system, and the talkgroups for Midlothian?Just got a new Whistler WS1040 and am having trouble getting my local PD to scan. (Midlothian, TX in Ellis County) Can anyone Assist. I'm ignorant when it comes to this. Thanks in advance.
Hey Steve, Thanks for the reply.
There are three programs that can be used to program your WS1040. If you got the scanner new, then you should also have the programming cable (should have been in the box). You'll need that to use software. Since you show to be a Premium Subscriber, you can use software to download frequencies and system information from the database here on RadioReference.Hey Steve, Thanks for the reply.
I had my scanner cloned from a friend. It came with several cities, but not any in Ellis county where I live. I'm not sure which software to use.
Are you hearing Johnson County & Mansfield? If so, they are on the FWRRS system, where Midlothian & Red Oak are now. You would need to add site frequencies & talkgroups.I'm not sure what I have now. I can tell you that I have 20 channels that include Mansfield, Hill county, Bell County, Johnson County, DPS, Etc. But I have no Ellis county.
I don't know of a specific business that programs scanners in the DFW Metro area.I am very ignorant when it comes to this sort of thing. Is there anywhere close to the DFW metroplex that I could take mine to and have it set up?
