I need help programming a single conventional frequency (452.975) that is not yet in the RR database into my HP-1 with the extreme feature. Can’t seem to get to the point where I can actually type in the frequency. I’m reading pages 6-10 in the extreme manual but I’m not getting it?? Can I use sentinel to do this?
Yes, you can more easily add some things using Sentinel. First create a system, then a department and then the channel underneath it. Set the Service Type and (optionally) a location and range.
Or copy the existing system or department to a favorites list and then edit that favorites list to add the new channel. Make sure to set the Service Type appropriately. If you have Location Control turned on then there MUST be a valid location and range for the department or system. Otherwise it will tell you Nothing to Scan or All systems & departments are out of range (or similar)
