      I usually break Fort Worth TRS into several systems...putting actual Fort Worth

      thanks again paul. it's a lot of keystrokes to remember, i'm struggling
      with all the modes and options.

      and i found out which system torpedoed me the other day: fort worth trunked
      public safety. it has 527 talkgroups, i'll have to prune that one.
