I would say, we shouldnt post about US Marshalls stuff, or FBI. That gives them more of a reason to use encryption. Just my opinion LOVE AND BLESSINGS

Thanks for the reply. Please drop by the feed if you wouldn't mind and have a listen. I think I've got some work to do whether it is reprogramming, antenna tuning, or both. I'm committed to making this feed as good as it can be.

It doesn't look like I can edit the previous post so here's a follow-on. I took my radio south on SR 267 while analyzing the signal, quality, and activity of the SAFE-T system Hendricks County Simulcast system. The signal strength went up only slightly (from about 5 to 6 on the HP-1's scale) and the quality and activity level changes were negligible if at all different.

Whether here or anyplace between here and Avon, I'm seeing lots of activity in the current activity monitor apparently not being copied to audio. Is this normal? Sometimes the radio goes for several minutes without copying anything, then copies a conversation (usually Hendricks County Law Diapatch - 7312) for several comms, then goes silent again, sometimes for several minutes. I also think I have only heard County Fire DIspatch D, never A1 or A2 and I cannot recall copying County Fire Operations A1-A9 or D1-D9 yet.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help. The feed is quiet literally 95% of the time.

I've been frustrated with getting anything from the Hendricks Co. system from my location in NW Marion County. I pick up all Hendricks Co Talkgroups via Boone County or ISP Post towers. There was a short time where I could get Hendricks Co, but that was before rebanding... and yes... i've rebanded my radio.

I've also tried to tune the system on a separate radio with the same results. I manually tune the control channel, turn the squelch down and have 0 or 1 signal strength bar on the meter on my BCD-996XT and T. But, when I go to ID Scan or ID Search... it can't lock to control channel. Based off the state map of towers... it makes me think the closest tower isn't working properly.

As I've said here times before... I can tune Shelby County and Boone County's simulcast system without trouble. Super frustrating.

Shouldn't matter if they are all programmed, right? I'm copying comms clearly; just not very many. Analyzing the trunked system with my HomePatrol-1 shows near 100% quality of control channel decoding with signal level a steady 5/10.

I hope you get your radio problem figured out. I'll tell you this much... when I do hear Hendricks County it's on PD DISP, PD OPS 4, and FIRE DISP. I'm sure I don't have the TG labels correct. I rarely hear any other county TG.

OK, let's talk about the FD side first. Runs are dispatched on 32-HCF-DISP digital. If it's a small fire run, any further traffic will be on 32-HCF-FIRE analog. If it's an EMS run, including traffic accidents, any further traffic will be on 32-HCF-EMS digital. Since most of the fire and EMS units in the eastern half of the county have MDTs, units usually mark on the run, mark on the scene, and mark in service using their MDTs, so you won't hear a lot of talk. EMS units which transport will talk to Hendricks Regional on 32-HCF-MED digital; if they are going to IU Health West or an Indianapolis hospital, they'll be on IDPS talkgroups. If the run is a major incident (house fire, big traffic accident, etc.), they will be assigned one of the 32-HCF-OPS analog talkgroups.

On the law enforcement side, dispatch traffic is on 32-HCP-DISP. License and registration checks are on 32-HCP-HQ. You'll hear 32-HCP-CC1 and 32-HCP-OPS4 used for chatter and tactical situations. Many of the PDs also have MDTs that they use to get runs and check license/registration so that cuts down on the talk on the radio.

You should hear Morgan County talkgroups thru the Hendricks County simucast system. You should also hear ISP Dist 33 Bloomington Post. I hear everything just fine after I get west of Marion County on 56Th street going towards Brownsburg. I will be going out to Brownsburg on Thursday 5-9-13. I will be in the area of I-74 and 56Th street on Thursday for a short time.

Salem Hoosier SAFE-T Site Question

Can someone confirm the Motorola Connect Tone (CT) that is displayed when parked on the Salem site's control channel frequency?

We've updated ALMOST ALL the sites with CT and NAC info on the SAFE-T page.

Thanks in advance

Go here Indiana Project Hoosier SAFE-T Trunking System, Statewide, Multi-State - Scanner Frequencies
After the towers, under "System Talkgroups", click on "List all in one table", that will list them by talkgroup instead of by agency.

Default Out of the loop

Hi all,

I have been away from the scanner (and radio in general) for a couple years. I have a PRO-2096 scanner and I used to have it setup to get our local police and such via SafeT - over a year ago. Now I hear nothing. I am thinking that the overhaul that I read about that happened last year would be the reason.

On another subject, I looked into the 800MHz rebanding and I do not see my scanner listed as "expect to fail" - is the 2096 still going to be good when this is all said and done?

I do need to reprogram the SafeT info into it but I might not bother if it will be useless in a short time.

Thanks!

Kevin

wa9ae, I own (3) Radio Shack Pro-2096 and 1 Radio Shack Pro-96. In order to receive safe-t you will have to use a computer and reband the scanner. If you do not reband the scanner you will not be able to hear safe-t. I thought my Radio shack pro-2096's and the pro-96 would work.They would not until I used the computer and set the program for re banded frequencies.

Default Analog radio rejection

On Trunk88 I see an analog radio rejected trying to affiliate to a digital talkgroup(unknown). Been trying now every second or two for over a week. Is there any reason why a radio should do this. Manual or automatic. RID # 2294

Cool

My best guess would be one of the two following theories (based on my experience):
  1. Radio that missed a programming cycle that someone turned on, sitting on a desk basically forgotten / they don't realize it is not affiliated with the displayed TG OR possibly incorrect programming by a vendor.
  2. Someone hacked (or paid someone else to hack) a radio onto the system and doesn't have a clue what they are doing.
