Question about Uniden BCD396T Handheld Scanner
I want to hear to local rcmp im in victoria county nova scotia and i can hear them on cc 860.812 along with alot of other agencies , the rcmp are on digital i have the talk group id for them it is 07600 i tryed istalling it in mot system p25 but i cant seem to get it to work for me can anyone help? thank you.
OK first off here is an excellent reference for the system information. http://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?sid=3627
One problem you may have is that you programmed the system as a Mot P25 System. I have done this same mistake. The system is actually a Motorola Type 2 Trunked system, The digital part is P25 audio.
In order to change this, you have to make a new system. You cannot go back and change the system type in the scanner once it is selected. I believe doing it through the computer you may be able to change it depending on the program you are using.
So in order to program this system is to set it up as a "new system"; select - MOT; then select - 800 Mhz. Standard.
Then in the system settings input the control channels for the towers around you out of the list. (Control Channels are the ones in red.)
Next input your talk groups you like, the victoria RMCP is correct that you have.
Then set the P25 Level to auto and Control Channels setting to control channels only.
Doing this should get you the system clearly. It appears to be a well developed system.
I hope this helps,
