Oh awesome, thanks for that, and your patience with me!

I will use that as the 'department' on my scanner and enter the frequencies in the channel guide and see what I can pick up. Won't get to that until this evening, but imagine there should be a bit of chatter still then, to test it is correct.

I will try to enter some of the other Busselton area frequencies that have been posted on hisotric boards to see what else I can get. Definitely a whole bunch of fun!

A lot of agencies how now gone to digital trunking or just plain mobile phones nowadays, but in the country there's probably still a lot of traditional analogue radio left.

I guess one benefit of being rural, haha! Hopefully I pick something up, other than the airport! :P

So would the system type be "conventional", for programming purposes, or should it be "P25 Trunking", or something else?

I have inputted all the frequencies, and am monitoring (hopefully correctly). So far nothing, but I guess that could mean anything...I could be out of range - Eagle Bay is about 40km from me.

Hi mate, I entered all the ones from the WARSUG lists provided. I picked up a little corro on Dunsborough channel last night, but it was quite static. This morning, so far it is just the airport again.

Here is an example of the entries in Sentinel...Image

Not sure if the image link worked: https://imgur.com/a/IDd0KLS

I have been getting hits on the Dunsborough, Jarrahdale and Bremer Bay frequencies this morning, but largely static. My squelch is at 2, and any higher it seems to only get the air traffic.

You'll need to put more than a couple of frequencies, places that are listed on the documents may not always match where they actually are. For an area of unknown channel allocations, I'd literally stick all 500 odd frequencies in and hit scan!

I've got a freescan file (or I can output to a csv document) with every channel/frequency if that helps.

Oh right, I see, sorry about that.

The Freescan software does not work with my device, but the file would be a great help for me to learn, if you do not mind forwarding that would be awesome.

I really appreciate the help on this forum. I know I am late to the scanning game, with some nay comms going digital / encrypted, but am thoroughly enjoying.
