# How to program a trunked System into radioshack pro 651?

am new to this forum, so tell me if this question is out of place - as it concerns a scanner.

I have an old radioshack pro-651 (same model as pro 106, and whistler 1040) that I am trying to program with the NJICS TRS.

I have added the TSYS object as follows, using the frequencies of West Orange Simulcast site.

    Type:MOT VHF/UHF
Frequencies:
769.19375
769.45625
769.66875
769.96875
770.44375
770.66875
770.91875
773.34375
773.79375
774.31875
774.54375
774.78125


Everything else is on the default setting.

I added a TGRP object with id: Wildcard

However after consistent monitoring, I fail to pick up anything. Am not sure if I'm leaving out any important fields.

How can this be accomplished?

• Welcome to ham.stackexchange.com! In my opinion scanner questions are on-topic here, because they are radio technology and people use them to listen to ham radio transmissions, but questions about trunked systems are not, because hams don't use trunking. So you're in a bit of a gray area (but I'm not a moderator). Anyway, hello and we're glad you stopped by! Apr 14 '20 at 14:25
• Oh, and what software did you use to program your scanner? Apr 14 '20 at 14:25
• thanks @rclocher3 . i tried to use arc500 , it downloads fine from my scanner, but it wont upload to the scanner, so actually did this manually Apr 14 '20 at 17:59
• @rclocher3 I found several scanner questions, so it's on-topic enough for me; it's not an OT business question. (I couldn't find anything about trunking, but IIRC there was a deleted question about trunked systems. But I think one of those might have been a jamming question.) Apr 15 '20 at 0:50
