Thanks
Nothing yet, it will be interesting to see how well I will receive the 159 freqs as they are adjacent to freqs on at least 2 Virginia STARS sites receivable at my location

I have unitrunker setup attm to run on the 700 mhz statewide system using 2 dongles and is working perfectly, however when I change control channels to the Seneca site for this system it sees the channel grants and radio ids etc, but the 2nd dongle never follows to the voice channel and therefore dsdplus won't decode. Am I doing anything wrong or is there a different way to set it up so that dsdplus will decode the audio?
I don't believe you'll hear any audio using DSD+ on this system unless it's a clear PH1 voice Ch.
DSD+ will decode the CC only on P25 PH2, but not voice, PH2 systems use the same P25 PH1 CC protocols, but DSD+ has not been given the capability to do PH2 voice. (Yet we all wait with anticipation for this feature to eventually be added to DSD+ Fastlane)

That's my understanding anyway....

ok my bad, apparently I need better reading comprehension.

Software Based Decoders
See our Trunked Radio Decoders page for a listing of applications. Packages like Digital Speech Decoder, DSDPlus, and SDRTrunk can handle Phase 1 signals, and DSDPlus also handles X2. In addition there are various decoding applications such as UniTrunker and Pro96Com.
I read this as saying it could handle it but after looking again and at the text above it for scanners :
Quote:
Scanner Support for TDMA
The following scanners can decode P25 Phase I, Phase II, and Motorola X2-TDMA systems.
GRE PSR-800 2
Radio Shack Pro-18 3, Pro-668
Uniden BCD325P2, BCD436HP, BCD536HP, BCD996P2, HomePatrol-2
Whistler WS1080, WS1088, WS1095, WS1098, TRX-1, TRX-2
Notes
I now see that its saying dsdplus can handle Motorola X2, my mitsake(sic)! Hopefully they will be coming out with ph2 soon as i'd like to hear whats going on if I can. thanks for the help!

Yes, P25 X2 may mislead one to think P25 PH2, but they are indeed different (not compatible) flavors.

Can't wait for DSD+ to get PH2 voice decoding, but that won't help with the encrypted comms regardless.

Just an observation, I've seen site 22 (Blanket Hill-ARMS32) go offline last night around 1am and then again tonight about 12:15. Storms rolling through both nights so maybe either site power issues or something getting reset from a close or direct lightning strike. Both cases had the site back online within a few minutes.

Troop G has gone live on the new system. Rockview and Philipsburg barracks are merging and moving into their new barracks July 23rd and then will begin using the new radios on the 24th.

Folks in the Harrisburg area should keep checking periodically for new sites. Several sites are pending now.

The Harrisburg 800 (1-052) is showing three neighbors currently offline:

1-053, 857.3375 cc, offline (DAUP01 Ellendale)
1-054, 859.1125 cc, offline (YORK01 Reeser's Summit/Fairview Twp)
1-058, 155.4450 cc, offline (YORK16, Andersontown)

The Ellendale VHF (1-004) is showing four neighbors currently offline:

1-053, 857.3375 cc, offline (DAUP01 Ellendale)
1-058, 155.4450 cc, offline (YORK16, Andersontown)
1-071, 151.3850 cc, offline (unknown, maybe Keffers?)
1-077, 859.4875 cc, offline (LEBA74, Ft Indiantown Gap)

Erie (ERIE80) and Presque Isle (ERIE40) are showing a new neighbor. Site ID 117 (TO0111).




I first heard it last week however due to a perfect storm of problems I was unable to run Pro96com. Yesterday it was active with short transmissions, about 10 sec, but not showing as a trunked system?

It probably is ULS Application - Public Safety Pool, Trunked - 0008120417 - PENNSYLVANIA, COMMONWEALTH OF - Frequency Summary

Frequencies were transferred from PSU Behrend Police to STARNET. I would imagine this means PSU police will be active on that site.

If somebody could get us additional details on the site, we can get it added.

Same freqs, but probably the more applicable license:

Yes, absolutely. I was just showing that these are the transferred PSU frequencies.

After switching antennas I was able to get a good signal and run Pro96com. It is WRAQ833.

Can this be set up as a separate favorites list on the 436?

TG 10148 on the Centre County Site.

Showing ENC with UIDs of 94 & 1200061.
Heard some audio but either bad signal or scanner not muting right away.

Sometimes the scanners don't mute on the encrypted traffic. The two digit ID's on the PSP channels are the station consoles, I think. Longer ones are the mobiles/portables.

At some point, I would imagine three digit console ID's will start showing up. I think there are two consoles at each station. Anybody know for sure?
