Not too sure, I'll have to do some checking.

Confirmed that Troop G switched to digital yesterday, the analog talkgroups have been removed from the database.

I live in huntersville. When I enter the control channel freq, it works. I entered tgids but can't pick anything up. On open scan mode, I only pick up a few police tgids. I have a RadioShack pro164 scanner. I am mostly interested in medical helicopters. Please help!

That may be all you pick up due to the fact that VIPER operates in a
smartzone format for most of the state which means the following
is true:

Quote:
For you to monitor a specific talkgroup on a SmartZone site, someone's radio must be affiliated to that specific site. Therefore, if you are monitoring talkgroup "POLICE-NORTH" on a site with no affiliated radios on that talkgroup, then you will not hear any communications on that talkgroup on that site.

I sent several emails on Friday to legislators for some help in keeping the VIPER funding intact... My source advised me that it was definately in danger of being cut during the conference committee meetings over the budget!

I am waiting to hear from them on the outcome...

Not to get sentimental but we are close to seeing a communications
first here in NC: the NC Highway Patrol operating day to day comms statewide in a
digital voice format for the first time in its 83 year existence. The days of
catching skip NCSHP comms in CA on 42Mhz are quickly becoming just a memory.
Hard to believe that back in 1999 that the system that would be known as VIPER
was just a local, small Motorola analog voice only system that was setup just for temporary
comms for the Worldwide Special Olympics here in the Triangle.
How far the state has come in a little over a decade.
Happy Monitoring to all

Default I rue the day......

....that I have to use a scanner instead of a real radio to listen to the NCSHP, but VIPER isn't fully built out yet and it'll be some time before it is, so for a while, the low band 20 channel legacy is still with us old hard-core Syntor and MaraTrac hardnoses who have been listening since the 60s. I won't remove the MaraTrac low band from the truck or Syntor from the house until the last low band transmitter goes off line. Meanwhile, my 800 stuff is on the job and ready to take up the cause, but it just ain't got the nostalgia factor or the audio quality, especially the audio quality. As a former NCSHP telecommunicator and long time listener, I shall miss it.

I'm gonna need a beer.....sniffle....

They were checking 10-87/ 10-41. So they were traveling. Just trying to get some waypoints to check on. I do think that it is where they are heading.

Marshall,

I thought troop H was supposed to convert in June before G. One of your previous post said
"--Troop H will Transition to digital voice beginning of June 2012
--Troop G will Transition to digital voice mid June 2012"

Troop H is still analog. Just wondering.

The initial info did say that H would get transitioned before G. Somewhere along the way the decision was made to swap them around. Mea Culpa
One thing I have learned working for the Government is that dates are never written in stone and most likely will change at least a couple of times. Especially for a project this big with so many variables in play.

I have trouble recieving VIPER in the car (Usually a CC reception of 20% or less). At home I get perfect (90-99% CC) reception. I have these sites in my Pro-106: Cane Mountain, Altamahaw, Greensboro, and Riverdale. CC Settings are on roam, and I use the RS 800mhz antenna. Can anyone hep me?

Make sure your attenuation is turned off.
Hold your scanner in a different position in the vehicle.
Change your roaming threshold settings.
Scan all sites at once rather than roaming (I find this more effective for me).
Scan a single site that has the best coverage for the area you travel most.
Add sites that are more spread out, don't add every neighboring site in the area.
Set a different TSYS up for each tower and turn them on as you travel through that coverage (works if you don't travel much).
Get a mobile antenna.

There's a million different things you can do, and it doesn't help that these scanners are very finicky a far as reception goes. Just experiment with a few ideas and use what works best for you.
