I need some guidance on the procedure for weekly updates from RR. I downloaded using Sentinel from RR. I sent the file from Sentinel to the HP-1. After doing this, I tried my Favorites list with ham radio repeaters and got an error message and it would not scan the ham radio favorite list.

I then backed up the HP-1 to ARC Patrol and sent the ham radio favorites back to the HP-1. Then I could scan the ham radio favorites after selecting the service type. Then my local public service frequencies did not work.

Then I transferred from Sentinel to HP-1 and overwrote the Favorites.

I cannot be doing things correctly. What is the procedure for handling the weekly updates from RR and having "normal" and ARC Patrol-created favorites work properly afterwards?

After running the Update, when you WRITE to Home Patrol are you selecting Erase Favorites?If you have that box "ticked" that would be an explanation.

I did not have it ticked as I did not want my ARC Patrol ham radio favorite overwritten. Thinking about this some more, the ARC made a new hpd file for ham radio repeaters. Wouldn't the weekly updating from RR "erase" that ARC hpd during the update?

If you saved under Favorites Sentinel should not delete any ARC PATROL files but you can always use ARC PATROL to re upload the file(s).

Also make sure that 'Erase Favorite lists on home patrol' is NOT selected when writing to the HP-1 form Sentinel.
