DISREGARD: Redownloaded and now am receiving.

I've downloaded this system from RR and programmed it into my 396XT using FreeScan. The scanner shows a signal strength, but if I scroll through the channels I'm not picking up a control channel. Also haven't heard any chatter at all. Scanner is in search mode.

For what it's worth, on some P25 systems, my x96 radios will only give a little "blip" of audio from the CC when I park it on that frequency by scrolling through the channels. I think the radio is trying to demodulate it as P25 voice but then realizes it's a control channel. Doesn't happen with all of them.. probably up to the variances between system flavors.

The easiest way to tell for sure with an x96 if you're receiving the control channel when parked on a frequency, is to watch the strength icon and watch for the "SID" and "WACN" display to alternate.

Well, for anyone watching the system it should be 100% clear that TPS plan on encrypting their comms. There's really no debate on that fact at all now.

TPS meaning Toronto Public Safety (all emergency services)

or TPS meaning Toronto Police Services.

320 - 62-TS Admin Traffic Services Administration (Confirmed)
345 - 85-CP Court College Park Court (Confirmed)


1407 - TFS Disp 4 Dispatch 4

As excalibur said earlier the talkgroups are the same .. take talkgroup shown on screen and multiply it by 16 and compare to the old system.


Although we know what they are I will post them here when I have confirmed the channel via listening to the audio.

Yes we know. Excalibur pointed it out earlier.. I am just confirming them as I actually hear them in use. Its one thing to know.. another thing to confirm. Once they are all confirmed we will be able to have the new system updated in the DB as well.

I've logged talkgroups 1 and 279 on Site 6 this evening and 327 on Site 7 earlier today. 259 showed up on Site 5 around 10:30am but just once. Unknown if Phase 1 or 2.
