NSW GRN Sites - Current Map

NSW PSN (Public Safety Network) Site map
Click on the link below.

Put your mouse cursor over the selected site and 
"click it" to reveal the frequencies allocated.

Majority of newer model Scanners only require that you enter the CONTROL CHANNEL into each site.

If the site on the Map does not show an active control channel - enter ALL the frequencies listed for that site and the Scanner will find the active Control Channel from that group.

You can also view a current NSW PSN Spreadsheet of all the current sites and control channels here.

If you see and error or wish to make a submission or correction, please

Close Call - turning it OFF. Uniden PT & HP models

Close Call – How do I turn it OFF?

Sometimes Close Call is turned on by accident and can be confusing as to how it even happened and how do I turn it off again. 
There are a couple ways it can be turned on and off, but I have found that for most people that are not familiar with the ‘double function’ of certain keys, this is the best way to make the adjustments.

Push the Menu Pad.

Scroll down the menu until you highlight Close Call.

Once Close Call has been highlighted - push the E.Yes button

The Close Call menu will now appear.

Scroll down the menu and highlight Set CC Mode.

Once Highlighted - Push E.Yes.

The Set CC Mode menu will now appear.

Scroll through the menu and highlight OFF and push E.Yes

You have now turned the Close Call (CC) option OFF.

Push SYSTEM to resume scanning.

Close Call can be turned on by accident if you push the FUNC pad and then the AVOID button.

Remember that some buttons have a dual purpose if the FUNC button is pushed prior.

Sometimes - the FUNC pad is pushed then the AVOID button, thinking that this is the correct procedure to AVOID a channel, but in fact your turning a Close Call mode on.

If you look closely at the AVOID button it has the CLOSE CALL symbol to its lower right, which in itself is confusing as it could relate to the 1, 4 or replay button.

Turning the close call function OFF via the keypad can also be done via pushing the FUNC pad and then quickly pushing the AVOID/CC button. 
Repeating this process will cycle through the CC settings until OFF is displayed. 
You would do this three times to return to where you started.
This method takes some practice and is generally the way things got confused in the first place.

New Sentinel Software update - DMR NXDN and Pro-voice.

By now some of you may be already aware that there is now the option to add DMR - NXDN and Pro-voice to your UBCD436PT and UBCD536PT Scanners.

This option requires that you purchase an access key to enable the DMR - NXDN or Pro-voice option.

To add these options to your Scanner you must first update the firmware via Sentinel Software.
You require version 1.03  (UBCDx36 Sentinel - Australian Version).

you can download the latest version of Sentinel directly from the web page.

This link will take you to the UBCD436PT page - use the download link on this page to obtain the latest version of Sentinel.

Once you have installed the latest version of Sentinel you can now connect your Scanner and update the firmware.

The new firmware will install the DMR NXDN and Pro-voice updates, but it wont actually let you use them - yet.

You then have to purchase an access key to be able to use the new options.

You can purchase the access keys here.

Each option requires it's own individual key.

Follow the instructions provided to install your access key.

Pro-voice option is only really useful for Tasmanian users monitoring the Edacs network.
When listening to Edacs - make sure that you set the Scanner to ID search to locate new Pro-voice users that may not already bee stored in the Scanners data card.
