So do I then just use the control channel as the frequency on the 
command line?  And in that case, is there any point in running the 
dongle at full sample rate to maximize bandwidth, or can I back down and 
reduce the CPU load?

Excellent!  Yes, I understand that white and black list are mutually

I don't think there are any phase 2 TGs in the system (yet) but I'll dig 
further.  I seem to have a pretty much line-of-site path to the main 
site, but I don't know if there are satellite sites that might be 
interfering as you say.

There was one other question I may have asked in the other thread: 
what's the best way to capture frequency and talkgroup data to a file? 
I want to build a list of the site frequencies, and all the talkgroups 
seen.  Basically, to capture the output of the "traffic" window.

Thanks again for all your help.  I really wasn't expecting to get 
everything working so well in one day!
