Need radio to use as scanner

Post by Jiim » Fri, 29 Aug 2003 06:57:06

My local county uses a GE Ericson trunked system with Logical Trunking
Order (LTR).  Needless to say I can't track this with any scanner I know
of on the market.

Does anyone know of a radio I can use to receive this system. Something
that can be programed to receive only.  Nothing new, looking for older
model I can grab from Ebay.

Thanks

Jim,
Is it GE/Ericson/MACOM or is it EF Johnson/LTR -- They are not the same.

Its Rensselaer County in New York.  I'm told it's a Multi-Net system.
No way to trunk track.  Real pain in the but.  My scanner will do
everything else.

I just got this from an email "EFJ Transcrypt MultiNet".  Does that make
any sense.

so I was a little off when I first asked.

Thanks for any help.

Jim

Jim,
Too bad, as Tarzan would say, "LTR good, Multi-Net bad" lol.
Kind of figured if it was public safety it would not be LTR regular, it's
not public safety grade.
