[i]You would need to add the under USa - Ohio _ Columbiana co - American Electric power (eastern US) Ohio and use append to favorite list - create new and name it aep.

What firmware or version of Sentinel are you using? Where do you find "Create New" after you append and delete the unwanted listings? By the way - THANK YOU for all your help!

BY the way - I need someone to help me understand how to edit a post. I have tried to change font size, color or italicize it and nothing changes except there are symbols and brackets on each end of my paragraph!!??

When you append - there is an option to add to an existing, or a box to [b]create new and place to name it.[/b]

OK - I am getting closer. Today I used Sentinel to append a MARCs channel. When I looked at my favorites list - I had a page that had my appended channel with a column that said "Department" and under that column were a lot of "Sites". I found out if you remove all the Sites from your list - your channel does not work. For example - I appended Ohio MARCs/OSP district 4/Lisbon dispatch - I left Lisbon dispatch "department" and Lisbon "site" and removed al the remaining sites and it worked. My question is how do you know what sites to remove when your channel is a County?

Generally - you want the closest one to your location. This shows all MARCS-IP sites. For instance I can receive 3 sites, but genreally only listen to 1.

There are other ways to determine - including loading them - locking ones out - etc. but for now , use the closest.

There also is simulcast - multiple sites - all on same freq and scattered through the county.

MARCS is nearley the same. If not aware, MARCS is still State Highway Patrol - IP is the newer system - Hiwy Patrol will be moving - eventually and MARCS will cease.
