I'm in Scarborough/OOB. Bayley's to be exact. The P25 system comes in much better than the analog system, same radio, same antenna etc. Haven't ventured out yet with it programmed. These are the TG's I got:



1203-
1145-
1121-
1105-
1107-trash pickup DPW?
1147-
1117-
1059-
1211-

The P25 system has much better performance. On 95 south, heard it R9 all the way down below Biddeford. It's pretty good on the hill in OOB and readable down on East and West Grand. The analog system, NFW in those places.

Is the analog system still live?

They're wouldn't be an LCN on a P25 system. The scanner should only need the monitor the control channel to track the system.

For a Motorola system, you enter the frequencies, LCN is not needed for those systems as your scanner automatically will determine the channel #

That list is for Type II moto systems, and I'm not even sure if that was pre/post 800 rebanding as it was edited back in 2011. I'd say it was post, but it's not relevant anymore.

That being said, I can't seem to find where you're seeing LCNs listed for that system. Any more hints?
