Thanks!

I don't understand, without being on the "inside", how one would detect a change in the system, then come to the conclusion that the two freqs were the issue.

I monitor the system all the time and wouldn't have known anything changed without popping in to the forum.

Might depend on how you have your scanner programmed, using control channel only or having every frequency programmed in for the site. If using the latter method you could miss traffic.

With EDACS you can not use control channel only.... All frequencies must be programmed in their LCN.

Having multiple scanners I removed the two new freqys for WC-EDACS on one scanner when they shifted them to there new digital system, but I left them in on another....When I saw a TG using 854.3375 and missed the transmission on the other radio I new I made a mistake....That's the problem with the new Uniden 436-536 you do not see the freqys anymore which is a mistake on Unidens part.....
