Programming Motorola type II system

HI, I live in Prince William County Virginia and I have been trying to program my scanner for a motorola type II trunking system to monitor local police and fire departments. I have been using "radioreference.com" for a guide. I am new to scanning and I still don't understand some things about trunk tracking. I porgrammed the system name of "Prince William County" from radioreference.com and it is a motorola type II system. I followed the directions according to the manuel and the directions on uniden's support site and the ID's show up according to their names but all I hear is this weird digital noise going off and on like there's a conversation but it's screwed up or something. Did I miss something? This also happens with other trunk systems I try to program and I can't figure out what Is happening or what I am doing wrong. I programmed everything that radioreference.com game me for the county system I have been trying to program. The only thing I can think of is the fleet group but im not sure what that is or how to program it because radioreference didn't provide fleet group info. Please help me.

The BR330T is an analog only scanner. Prince William County's system is 800 MHz digital, which your scanner cannot receive. You can receive the fire department simulcast of "5A" (their fire dispatch channel) on 154.325 in analog mode.

I live in Kingwood Preston county west Virginia, I need to know what the what the numbers would be for that city and state, and how to program the scanner please

You need to find your local Ham radio club. Ask politely, they have this information, but do not need to share it. If there is an old "radio-shack" type of store, they likely have the information also.
Programming, need the brand and model of your scanner.

How to resolve CODEPLUG ERR on Motorola PTX760

Your radio needs to be reprogrammed or repaired. This type of error can occur for no reason, or during an interruption in programming. Check your programming/test set-up. Do not try to reprogram using the same codeplug (saved version of programming) as previously used, as it may be corrupt. If you cannot get the error to clear with a fresh programming, the radio will need to go to Motorola to have the error cleared.

Best regards.

What software is required to program a motorola cp125

Motorola programming software is proprietary to them, radio dealers must pay for a subscription to each software. You would need a programming cable, radio interface box (RIB), and RVN4196 software subscription. Your radio should be programmable at your local dealer for a reasonable fee.

best regards

How to create my own layouts?

Both the MTX8000 B5 & B7 models are Type II Trunking. If you are (un)lucky enough you might find an F3 modem that does Type II.
If it is an MTX8000 and has a front mounted display with either a 6 button or full keypad, you have a radio that will do Type II.
There were a few B3's that were Type II produced by Motorola. However, you can clone a Type II code plug into a B3 radio and it will work just fine.
You can run system watch using a MTS2000 handheld. Firmware version has to be above 5.44 (which has a 512k controller in it). Most MTS2000/MTX8000's only have a 256k controller, which will not work. You can put the radio into RF modem mode from the F4-F4-F4 (Trunking Config).
NOTE: When the radio is in the RF MODEM mode, it will do a self test and then the screen will go blank. The radio DOES NOT have to be programed to the system you want to watch. You set SYSTEMWATCH to the Spectra with RIB mode (works best). Even watches Type I systems.
If you have the accessory adapter for the side connector on the radio, the typical schematic of the speaker mic looks like this.
If you are using a Public Safety speaker mic with the radio, you might want to order part number 3205514W01 to cover the antenna connector on the radio.
If you are trying to program a MTX-838, from what we've heard, you need to use the MTSX software. The RVN4097F ver R02.10.01 RSS package specifically shows it programs the following radios: MT/MTS2000 MTX838/8000/9000. Now, the update for this software is RVN4097M R06.00.00 05 Sept 97, which should mean that it should program the radio as well. The cable you need is the standard MTSX programming cable.
Do you want to build your own programming cable? If you don't want to use an old speaker mic cable, see the individual part numbers of the parts for the Service Cable, below.
You may want to look at the schematic for the RKN4035D Service Cable. This is the actual Motorola cable used for programming and servicing these radios.
The individual part numbers for the components of this cable are listed below.
