My understanding from way back when the system was first proposed, was that if they included the buses the Federal Government would pay for close to half of the cost of the system.

7586,
Thanks for the link.

The system will be only for Fire/EMS and DOT(BeeLine buses). The only Police that will have access to this System are the base radios at each PD's HQ. This is to facilitate I/O between agencies, and Fire/EMS dispatch not handled by 60 Control. Parks & Recreation were never meant to, and currently, do not have access to this System.

On the list of talkgroups 17904 fits in right between the hex/dec of Tactical 7 & 9, so I am guessing this is the "missing" Tactical 8.

Has anybody tried programming the system into a Uniden BC 785D? Need some help with it? Also does anybody out there have the programming cable and software for this scanner as well?
Thanks
Mike

Exclamation tracking system with a radio shack 528

Has anyone tried to monitor the westchester trunked system with a radio shack? The uniden seems to track it very well, the radio shack only accepts one base/offset series??! Which one do I enter?

Couple of the Yonkers Units have been testing on the 4816 TG tonight, most recently Engine 310.

Default Trying to scan Westchester County Trunk System with RS PRO-97

I am interested in someone with a Radio Shack PRO-97 to share how they have programmed it with the Westchester Trunk system.

I tried a number of methods including using WIN97 and having it download the data from here. I have yet to hear anything yet.

Then today I took two of our trunk radios (I volunteer for a northern Westchester ambulance corps) and checked it with a frequency counter and the PRO-97's Signal Stalker. I was surprised to see 473.55 MHz and 473.35 MHz come up as two of the xmit frequencies. I was surprised because these two frequencies are not on the list at http://www.radioreference.com/module...me=RR&sid=1744 . Could this just a xmit frequencies that would not normally be included in the list of frequencies?

Is there anyone who can confirm that the list on this site is complete and accurate for the new DES Trunk System? Anyone who can provide details (for me and many others) on how to scan this system?

Yes those are the input freq's.

#1 - Make sure you are receiving a Control Channel (470.5750Mhz - North Zone, 476.2375Mhz - South Zone). Manually go to one of these channels and verify a constant "noise" on this channel, this means you are in range to recieve transmissions from the System.
#2 - Make sure the bank you have the frequencies in, is programmed for Motorola type II UHF. ( I programmed my Pro97 with each Zone in a different bank, because each bank has different freq's and Base/Offset/Spacing settings).
#3 - Make sure you have either talkgroups programmed in (for closed mode), or go to open mode to listen to all talkgroups on the System.

Searching the FCC's database came across a newly issued license for Westchester's Trunked System.

WQHV394
new freq. 470.2000MHz for the three South Zone sites @ 110watts.

Also, according to FRN 0003130723 the County was unable to get authorization for use of 470.0250MHz from a co-channel user, and there are only going to be five frequencies for the South Zone.

I've been scanning the north zone for a week or so now all the way up in Wurtsboro, Sullivan County NY, that 110 watts comes in like gangbusters up here. I hear mostly Fire 11 and Hudson Valley EMS traffic apart from all the transit talk.

While searching the FCC's website, I came across a pending application for additional frequencies for the Westchester County Fire/EMS Trunked System. Information on this application can be found at http://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsApp/Appl...pplID=4606449#. In the Request for Waiver, it states these frequencies will be used for the North Zone of the System. A couple of odd things about this application are that only the lower half of the frequency pairs are listed, and the application is for conventional use, not trunked operation.

Found a pending application on the FCC's website for Westchester County's trunked system. Link is at ULS Application - Public Safety Pool, Conventional - 0003567288 - WESTCHESTER, COUNTY OF - Frequency Summary. Frequencies are 476.3000/479.3000MHz and are only for the North Zone of the system.

There are also several other pending applications for base station operation at multiple North Zone locations at License Search.
