It sounds like the Sheriff's Office has completely switched as the legacy VHF channels have been silent most of the morning.
34100 Law 1
34101 Law 2
34117 is Court officers and maybe County Jail too not sure yet

Okay, I'm sorry, but now even I'm getting confused. Or just old. :-)
If I wanted to monitor Blue Springs, would I enter the KCMO P25 freqs as I did for Gladstone, Riverside etc. or are there separate ones like JOCO has?
Same with Platte County? I don't completely get the different sets of freqs for the same system. I do understand where they might be shared.
Thanks.

I think he is asking if he puts the Control Channels you have above in the MARRS system...Im not sure you can just start a new separate system...they are in KCMO's system the way I understand it....

you might show an example if you can....

I'm a bit confused as to what you mean by that. KCMO is the "Master Site" for MARRS while Platte County, JOCO, and Blue Springs are all considered "Prime Sites". Only public safety users on the KCMO system are KCPD, KCFD, Gladstone, NKC, Clay County Sheriff, and Riverside (although Riverside has been appearing on the Platte County site from time to time). Units from Platte County, Blue Springs, and JOCO agencies all stay on their prime sites unless someone initiates a pursuit or responds mutual aid to another part of the city.

Keeping things separate in my scanners has worked out quite well.

You, my friend are on the right track!

This is the way you should program your scanner...

Platte County has TG 34104 as they referred it to "Tac 1" and seemed it was either a secondary or a channel to run license plates on. Their system sounds great compared to the legacy one they had. Only heard talk on Law 1, 34100 and Tac 1 as listed above. Had an emergency call, but didn't hear FD on the system that I could tell.

Also I heard a lot from Life Flight Eagle on the KCMO side, is that a dispatch TG for them does anyone know because it sounded like it was?!

Got it! Is that a dispatch channel or operations channel?

Most of the time it is both scannerowner.



hkrharry, do you think we could change the name of the Jackson County - Simulcast to KCMO Simulcast or something like that, right now we have Jackson County - Simulcast and East Jackson County Simulcast.

I think it is going to be confusing and it covers more then just Jackson county. Just an idea Thanks.

So they do dispatch on it? I thought I heard them saying respond to somewhere. Are they just the helicopters in KC or does that include Trenton and Clinton.

Eagle 2 (Harrisonville) and Eagle 3 (Odessa) are toned-out on the KC Wireless passport trunked system. Eagle 1 (Trenton) and Eagle 5 (Clinton) have their own conventional UHF base frequencies for initial dispatches. All aircraft have access to the 31842 (LFE Ops) talkgroup to give ETA's, position reports, etc. No initial dispatching takes place on that one.

I was thinking the same thing last lite while I was moving things around.
That the similar names would be confusing a bit.

Let me make it so..... Done

Platte County moved all of their Fire/EMS dispatching to 34141. This includes all northland Fire Departments, Smithville Fire as well as NRAD ambulances. With the latter two previously on their own VHF frequencies. I'm sure they have fireground TAC channels, but I am not certain.

I should be getting my hands on one of the police side radios tonight and using my laptop with UniTrunker. Should make the task easy and hope to have plenty of channels ID'd. Its my first experience using UniTrunker on my 106. Tinkered with it at home last night and it seemed to work even though I was only seeing 40-75% of the control channel data at home. At work I can easily hear 99%, so I hope it goes well.

As far as the quality, I am very pleased with the way it sounds from work but cannot hear anything at home anymore.

Be sure to set up auto save AND manually save your data...I have lost weeks of data on entire systems before when the program crashed and random bugs caused my files to be lost...
