      I should have mentioned that you could have easily limited the HP-1 to the
      Benning site by using the Favorites Lists...no upgrade required.

      But, had you sprung for the $100 the upgrade would have included features making
      your "detective" work much easier. The HP-1 can be set to record audio only on
      "unknown" channels for later playback (Trunking Discovery Mode).

      For the first question, you must play detective.

      For the second, talk groups don't "go with" system sites. What happens is that
      if a user whos radio is set for a particular channel affiliates with a site,
      then that site will carry traffic for that channel. If no user for a particular
      channel is associated with a site, that site will not carry that channel's
      traffic. It is somewhat dynamic in that regard. (There are some specific
      exceptions where the system administrator can prevent certain channels from
      affiliating with certain sites, but that is fairly uncommon.)

      So, on a statewide system like Colorado, the sites to the far west will not
      typically carry Denver traffic. But if someone from Denver drives out west with
      their radio set to a Denver channel, each site that the radio affiliates with
      will carry the Denver channel traffic until the radio affiliates with another
      site (or is otherwise out of range).
