Hi! I just got my HomePatrol 1 and am having programming issues. I only seem to pick up OSHP on MARCS. How do I program the unit to be able to hear Toledo and Sylvania City?
Thanks!
Becky

If you mean the Toledo and Sylvania Fire and Police departments, they are not on MARCS (from what I can tell from looking at the database). They appear to be on this system: www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?sid=4239

You are very correct! :) I guess I am on new info overload. But now that that is straight; how do I narrow down which departments on the Northwest Ohio Regional Public Safety System that I WANT to listen to?

If you are using a favorite (highly suggested) just use Sentinel to delete those not needed.

Otherwise - do an avoid for ea. one not needed in the HP.

If you are using at a fixed location - favorites is the way to go. Example. I have one created for each nearby county, for HAM Freq. and Power Outages - it is on now, has local utilities and other "oddball" that I never routinely listen to.

For help on Favorites search as there are many topics. You can also scan multiple favorite lists as needed.

Nice thing - you can quickly start using it, narrow down using the radio w/ avoids, turn that into a favorite THEN as you learn more, create favorites that do just what you want.

Which part? Do you know how to create a favorite?
Do you know how to select and scan multiple favorites?
As ia said previously " For help on Favorites search as there are many topics"
