UBCD436-PT Trunking

Just a quick question when setting up P25 system do you have enter all the frequencies for that site or just the control frequency?

Hi Steve. I'm not familiar with the 436-PT or sentinel software however as per previous models you should be able to enter control channel only. I also enter alternate control channels if known. On the odd occasion, for whatever reason if the CC goes down you are still able to monitor the site.

Thanks X-Firey I started with the just control channels (NSW GRN) but I think I was missing some transmissions so I added siw more frequencies from Radioreference.com (that all they had for the site near me). It got better but still missed some transmissions, so I did a Conventional Discovery overnight and found 21 more frequencies. I feel that not missing any now, but that's just from one site.

I travel often between Wollongong and Sydney airport and there six sites on the way, that's a lot of discovering. I have noticed that the CFA P25 Districts included with my scanner only have one frequency per site. I haven't been to Victoria to see if it works, if someone let me know.

I have my Uniden scanners programmed CC only for the Victorian RMR network and it works without any problem.
Likewise with the TRX 1 and 2...
