Dan, what did you do to adjust the levels? There is a screw on the logic board that I believe is red or orange, is this the one you turned to adjust and align the levels?

Default encrypted channels

Anyone else notice some of the "sensitive" channels are half in the clear? From time to time I get a "wild card" hit from one of the encrypted channels but only one side of the conversation is scrambled, can't they tell they're not completely encrypted?

They'll know now.

I hear this happen on other supposed encrypted channels, not just on this system. Seems as though the radios are set up as to make the secure mode switchable on/off via a programmable button as opposed to programming the channel as secure only. They must have their reasons for doing this. My guess is that not all radios in the group are secure equiped....yet.

But how does a non secure equipped radio decipher the ones that are, this is what I'm saying, two people having a conversation, one clear, one not.

I hear what your saying,,User 1 is say...a spotter...calling out targets in the clear,User 2 is say...a scoop up team..responding in the full ENC mode..

its simple,the radio will receive and decrypt the signal,being on the same TG the radio dose not care if the transmission is encrypted.either way the user will hear the others TX..as long as the (encryption) keys make the proper -Handshake- its all G2G...the PPD TRS dose not use any OTAR systems,so i believe the keys are set and left...

Fed systems sometimes have the issue of radios not being loaded with the matching Enc-key..you will,,on occasion hear a user say,,switch to clear,i cant understand you.. or
something to that effect...(been a while since i monitored FEDs)..

this is due to 1 radio being updated via OTAR and the 2nd Not being updated...again,,the ctiy dose not seem to use this set up..Yet

Philadelphia (Project 25) Trunking System, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - Scanner Frequencies

The above page points to the current Philly system. My understanding of the system is zone one is fire and most city services. Zone 2 is mainly police.

Recent wildcard hits TalkGroup 1303 and 1305. It is very active. It sounds like it's the Philadelphia Parking Authority. Can anyone verify?

PPA Conventional Channels are silent now. It appears they have TGs 1303 and 1305 - I can confirm 1305 sounds like PPA Channel 3 (Tow Squad). Also last night picked up a wildcard hit on TG 1803 - sounded like a radio check but couldn't identify what it was.

The A side of the system is Fire and all city services, the B side is Police there is some roaming between
the 2 systems. Some PD talkgroups will roam to A and some Fire groups will roam to B.

The PD radios are no longer selectable encryption so you won't hear any clear transmissions talking to
encrypted transmissions. All PD special unit groups are now forced encrypted.

you can't select the encryped talk group on the scanner it self but you can from the computer. all you have to do is click "new" tab on the right of the list. than enter the ID for the channel you want to hear and write the name of that channel next to it, any questions, I'll walk you through it. my name is Mark. 215 989 3877 call me anytime

If they look at the switch on their radios they could see but they cant tell by transmitting. sometimes when they switch over to the Dispatch band to talk to the dispatch they would have to switch off the encryption mode so the regular patrol police could hear because the most patrol units radios are not encryption capable. and then they would forget to switch the button back to encrypt that radio. that's why sometimes when your listening to an encrypted channel, you will hear one of the radios unencryped

1303 is definitely TOW / IMPOUND and 1305 Is PPA and may be the ticket writers but not sure
