TSBK's are individual "trunk signaling blocks" or packets of data that convey things like group voice channel grants, group voice channel updates and the like. Essentially once you are tuned to a control channel you should see this counter rolling as signaling info is received and reconstructed from the p25 decoder.

By increasing the value of the -v parameter you can control the detail level of the stderr.2 log file. The range is presently 0 (silent) to 11 (maximum debug) with "1" being a good number to simply monitor the history of what op25 has been tuning in to.

Wireshark is not presently operable - the wireshark decoder is out of date and does not function correctly. If you'd like to see P25 protocol exchange, turn the log level up to 10. (-v 10)

When I add the -v option, any value more than 4 creates a bunch of garbage to be written to the screen. Where does the stderr.2 log file reside?

You have to redirect the stdout and stderr to a file. See the bold bit below.

./rx.py --nocrypt --args "rtl=0" --gains 'lna:36' -O 'default' -S 960000 -q 0 -d 0 -v 1 -2 -V -U -T trunk-test.tsv 2> stderr.2

The stderr.2 file (or whatever you name it) ends up in the current directory (usually ./apps)

Default <f>req button

Has the <f>req button been disfuncticated, I thought a couple months ago i could just scoot around control channels using that button?

You can enter a frequency using "f" but I'm not sure of a req button.

Sounds like a bug. I'll look more later.

Does OP25 have a "wildcard" search logic in the whitelist? In other words, if I wanted to scan TG between 7500 to 7599, could I make a single entry like 75** in the whitelist?

No, nothing like that at present, but it's an interesting idea.

It was a bug and if you pull an update it should now be fixed. Word of caution: it's not very graceful and has potentially unexpected behavior if you tune to a new frequency while trunking is active.

Is there a procedure to follow to update, or do you use the OS's built in update function?

cd ~/op25
git pull

No changes to library code so you don't need to make or make install.
