    EDACS trunked system, showing the frequency transitions that a particular radio conversation might use. Note: Many 900 MHz EDACS ® trunking systems (such as those used by some utilities) utilize a control channel that cannot be tracked with the BC 245XLT.
  • Page 39: Setting The Squelch

    Setting the Squelch Since Squelch is automatically adjusted in trunking mode, it isn’t necessary to manually adjust the squelch control while trunk tracking. However, the squelch setting you select before you begin trunk tracking can affect how fast your scanner acquires the data channel, and, in some instances, the squelch setting can prevent your scanner from acquiring the data channel at all.

  • Page 44: Id Lockout

    ID Lockout Like conventional scanning, it’s possible to lockout unwanted traffic. This is particularly important in trunked systems because in many areas, water meters, door alarms, traffic signals, and other mechanical devices are assigned IDs just like other users. Also some departments scramble or encrypt their communications, and you may want to lock out these unintelligible broadcasts.
  • Page 45: Restore All Ids

    Restore all IDs To unlock all locked out IDs at once, follow these steps: Press and hold until you hear two short beeps. Press the IDs at once. Note: If you unlock all the IDs, then the Scan List Memory mode displays. Press stored in your Scan Lists or press the Search mode.

    Setting the Base and Offset frequencies for Motorola VHF/UHF trunked systems To properly track Motorola VHF and UHF trunked systems you must enter what is known as the “base” and the “offset” frequencies for each system. To find these out, check the www.trunktracker.com or www.bearcat1.com/free.htm and other web sites and frequency resources.
  • Page 61: Toggling The Status Bit

    An emergency call will occur on a unique talk group from its primary assignment, for example. Because the BC 245XLT defaults to Status-Bit On mode, you never need to worry about missing these transmissions. If you’ve programmed talk group 33264 into Scan List memory, for example, and there is an emergency call within the group, you will hear it on 33264.
