Clayton State Police New Digital TRBO
Well i can say this much for tha new MOTOTRBO Digi-tale radio system that clayton state college police has just put into service a month ago, it is reeking havoc on everything that i monitor with! It bleeds into the clayton county police frequencies & stateband channels on my scanner along with other VHF frequencies. I hear it on MURS, and all the VHF business channels also (Red dot, blue dot, purple dot). Its also gettin into the 2meter HAM frequencies that i listen to over the scanner & even the HAM radios themselves are picking up the Digital Data noises whenever they are using their new system. I live directly behind the college & im so close to them that their system breaks open the squelch on every radio i have turned on. I guess it doesnt matter since this county is going to encrypted digital P25 anyways! But for Now it sounds like everyones talking in analog/digital simultaneously whenever theres a open repeater signal up! Nothing can be done to fix this that im aware of so its another fine day of scanning in Clayton County!
