Riscon

#1 Post by Bahnstormer » 22 Feb 2019 17:02

I am trying to understand Riscon and how to add this to my scanner, it seems very confusing too me. I have to try to add it manually because I only have a Mac and it will not run any scanner software. Sorry to ask this question in a pm but this was the type of question I was going to ask in my post. Thanks

RISCON is a Trunked System where the frequencies are shared by many agencies/departments.

Generally you enter the Control Channels [could be up-to 4, newer systems more] for the nearest Tower/Zone/Site
Then you enter the Talk-groups which define which agency uses the channel at that time.

Not all agencies will be on ALL of a TRS Zones. For RISCON there is North, South and Providence
a southern agency might only be allowed on the South Zone, then there are exceptions [later as your learn]

IF you are looking for help
a. What Scanner
b. Have you read, re-read and read the manual

Also what area are you in. Perhaps someone local to you can dump the system into it.
