I'll also go by the Carma site - an amazing plethora of information and great group of people! I've known some of them for more years than I'd like to admit. Hahaa

Am I going to run out of room before I get all of them entered? I know there are some maximums but right now I have too many "numbers" spinning around in my head to remember what my maximums are. I have 4 heavily populated counties which all have a significant number of StarCom sites, frequencies and talkgroups. I just want to make sure, before I spend a tremendous amount of time juggling through this, to make sure I do it right. (None of the talkgroups are setup with the sites - one has to go through them and figure out talkgroup what goes with what site!)
