Is this a digital or analog trunked system?

P-25 systems, like this one, are full time digital audio and 9600 baud control channel.

It is different from a TypeII system in that Type II systems can carry analog audio, digital (P25) audio, or a combination of both (mixed mode).

Default APD NOT WORKING

Any one know why I can't receive Austintown Police on the talkgroups that are listed here and worked in June?

I'm betting the control channel may have changed. The RR Database only lists one control channel, and that is because nobody within earshot of this system ever bothered to submit the full system details (from a trunking program) for us to know what all of the control channels are... at least that's likely the case.

Tune each of the following frequencies with your scanner [if you know how to tune to them manually], and let me know which one of them has a constant (24/7) digital contorl channel belching noise. If you can let me know, I'll update the database to reflect the additional control channel.

The system actually might use all freqs as control channels and may rotate them, or it may be configured to have a primary and a secondary control channel (and we don't know what the other control channel is).

So you may actually be able to help us to help you [and everyone else]

854.76250 856.61250c 857.08750 857.61250 858.11250

You're welcome, and Thank you! I'm glad you were able to ascertain the new CC. I've listed that CC as an additional CC on the system now.

Thanks Mike I guess the 857.61250 is a new channel since I programmed my Pro 106. I added it now works fine. Good work.

If there is any doubt and you feel like you are missing something, then add a wildcard talkgroup. You do that different ways depending upon the type of scanner you're using, and you haven't specified your scanner type.

On a GRE PSR 500/600/800 or RS PRO-197/106 you'd add a Group Wildcard talkgroup. On Unidens, I forget how it is done . It might be called "Open Mode" or "ID Search Mode".

That way you'll hear all talkgroups that are active [and not encrypted]. You might even come across some new [or changed] talkgroups that nobody else has bothered to submit to the DB. And if you do find new ones, we'd appreciate it if you'd let us know.

Thanks

Mike

I have a 996XT and it seems that if you don't key in any groups the scanner will just search as you described. Thanks!

As of today Boardman Fire no longer appears to be using their VHF frequencies. Are they now on this new system and if so does anyone know the talkgroups?

Boardman Fire is now using TG5170. They were testing stations 71, 73 and 74 Monday morning.

Keep an ear on TG1480. I heard some activity on it this morning but I couldn't tell who was using it. It sounded like PD traffic. It doesn't fit the numbering scheme so it might be a new agency on the system.

Talk Group Numbering Schema (in case you haven't figured this out already)

Austintown 1xxx
Fire 11xx
Police 15xx
Road 18xx

Boardman 5xxx
Fire 51xx
Police 55xx
Road 58xx (if they ever switch over)

Mill Creek Park 21xxx
Police 215xx

Austintown Fire was trying to reach 199 on TG1173 this afternoon. Might be a fireground channel.

I noticed the VHF was silent last week when 71 came at me and I was completely unaware. It's nice to have a heads up when a truck comes up the left side of 224. I hope there is no problem in a mutual aid fire. BFD ties up all trucks during a residential fire.
The old VHF PD repeater on 155.490 is still up, but the radio gear was donated to the schools for whatever situations may arise. Not sure of the status of the FD VHF repeater.
