      First of all these Sites should be programmed as P25 Standard, they won't
      work properly if they are set to Motorola.

      Second, each of the 866-869 MHz. sites in the Chicago area have been
      rebanded to 851-854 MHz. Any freqs you have in the radio between 866 and
      869 should be converted to 851-854.

      I should have the latest version of the CARMA Profile out this week, it
      lists all the rebanded freqs.

      As for the talkgroup lists, if you "Search" instead of "Scan" trunked
      systems then you will hear any traffic on the Site, those you have
      programmed in the radio will show the tags you entered, others will just
      show the TGID.

      You should also have Control Channel Only mode turned on, but TTTT I am not
      sure it matters on P25 systems, I think the radio ONLY works in that method
      regardless of the actual setting. Unless the additional channels added to a
      Site are Control or Alternate channels it would matter if you have them in
      the radio.
