Re: 396XT not tracking individual calls on Tait P25 system?
- Thanks for the feedback Dave; at least I know it's just not an isolated
incident with the local TriMet system here in Portland, Oregon. Guess we'll
have to wait and see if any fixes are forthcoming? Not many systems seem to
use Private Call in this area, even the older Motorola Type 2 systems.
I have the same problem in E Idaho. Uniden scanners don't seem to be able to
track i-calls when Tait radios are involved, although I don't know exactly
why. I have also heard this from other Uniden owners on other P25 Tait radio
systems. GRE scanners seem to track the i-calls OK. Unidens should track
i-calls ok on Motorola P25 systems.
