New to Trunk tracking Need some help Please

Post by Stoli1 » Thu, 26 Feb 1998 04:00:00

I reside in Albany,  NY and just purchased a Trunk Tracker. I have followed the
instructions for programming the Trunk Tracker and it seems to be working fin
but I am a little confused about some things. Perhaps someone in or near
Albany is reading this and can help. First the steps I have taken were
programming in the 14 frequencies that Albany Uses. Then I hit search and
get Albany PD Albany Fire Etc. Next day comes and I turn the scanner on and
do the same thing and I am only gettting the Albany Street Department Plows
etc no more Police until programming the 14 into another bank and then hitting
search and then its fine again Why is it that some days I am only hearing the
street department Do things change from day to day or am I doing something
wrong. Do I have to program the frequencies in every day. Many thanks either
E Mail me or post to group Greatly appreciated

I'm new on trunking myself, so I am no expert, but (I think) you can
track your Albany PD or Fire Dept. 2 ways.....
1) hit trunk and then wait until the ID that you want to hear comes up
and then hit hold and your trunk will track only that ID that you want
to trunk
2)punch in the ID that you want to track into your trunktracker while
in the trunkmode (I haven't done that yet, just read about it....)On
