TG 777 SCAN
« on: January 17, 2019, 05:38:04 pm »
I am sure someone can set me straight on this.

Greetings,

If I want to scan the TGIF channels, I understand I put the radio in promiscuous mode and go to TG 777. So my two questions are:



1. What I don't understand is why that doesn't open up brandmeister and repeaters/simplex channels that are on my radio.

2. Heaven forbid, let's say I don't have all of the TGIF TGs on my radio, do they also get opened up when in scan (777) mode?

There is something in my mind not seeing the correct way things are interconnected.

So feel free to educate me.

Thanks,

1. Because the others are not on TGIF server
and TGIF server is programmed to send all its tg when 777 is sent

And the others listed are NOT bridged to tgif



2 yes all the tg on TGIF will be sent
Your radio will receive them all if permiscous is on
Else you only hear the tg on your channel or in receive group

Since its not scanning radio channels, but receiving talk groups on A channel. its a bit different

First you need to know what Talk Group you hear that you are interested in hearing ONLY.

there are several ways to do this-
1 look at radio.
  while receiving it should show what talk group is being heard

2 look at TGIF active talkers page
  http://tgif.network/lastheard/active.html and see who is transmitting on what talk groups

3. on md380 w/toolz
       hit 4 key to see list of last heard



once you know what talk group there are a few ways to get there

1 dial your radio to the channel you have set for that talk group
     key it to tell server to only send you that TG traffic

2 ad hock the channel you are on to temporarily use that TG
       on md380 w/toolz
          hit # #
          enter the TG number
         green button to enter it
         key it to tell server to only send you that TG traffic

3 on md380 w/toolz hit the 3 key
       this will set ad hock for current channel to the last heard TG


4 on self care page http://tgif.network/RPTRR/index.php change your hot spot  to the interested TG
      this will just remove the 777 feature so you can only hear one TG.
     you will still have to do (step 1 2 or 3) to transmit
