We actually live in West Lafayette, and there is a tower within miles of us. I don't think reception is going to be an issue. If you could email me a favorite for Coshocton that would be great.

You are right, the Sheriffs Dept is going total MARCS this year. EMS uses it now, so if you don't have a radio that will pick up the MARCS, you are not going to hear anything soon.

My email is This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it I think I will download the Sentinel now in my mac, so when I get the unit, all I need to do is connect it to my mac.

Thank you for all the advice. And yes, we are neighbors...lol

Some people have got it to run under an emulator, but Macs are not supported directly.

If you have not seen this it's all talkgroups and transmitter sites.

Let me know if you get it running and I'll email you.

I received the home patrol yesterday. Another question. On start up it said to install the Sentinal for updates. I have a macbook pro and it is not compatible. Or if it is, I am either doing something wrong or simply once again don't understand it.

That's the trouble with this disease. Early On-Set Alzheimers. I can't remember anything. So...is the Sentinal downloadable for Mac's? And remember, the answers have to be simple. Sorry...lol

It seems to work fine out of the box, but I think I need the Sentinal for updates. sigh

Mentioned a couple times in this same thread... Not a MAC user - PC for the last 30 years :)

There are some PC under MAC programs and some people have had luck, but others have not.

You will need it to keep up to date , create favorites, etc.

You could always find an old xp machine. I've ran it on a netbook that is not very powerful and several years old.
