Thanks TEMT - Also looks like 410.5500 NAC 293 Might be the Repeater In-put to 407.5000 I'll verify or rule this out when I move to Bonham next week. (4 blocks from the VA).

Bet your right about 419.175000 FPS I believe have a Sherman Texas station, bet this is it.

Here is another common hit in VHF Search

US GOV. 170-174 ,170.562500

Thanks Again!

I'm in SPI right now, catching some of the new CBP/ICE freqs down here. A lot of encryption on the P25 side (1/2 clear, 1/2 enx), also still hearing some DES on 169.4500 in analog. When I get back home I'll post what I've caught.

Also, travelling down here yesterday I pulled up next to a truck at a stop light near Kingsville (heading south). The unmarked vehicle had a small VHF antenna on the roof (that's what caught my eye), and a K9 cage in the back seat. Driving was an OBP agent and as he pulled away from me (hauling ***), I noticed his back window had a small note written on it in (in grease pen):

P25
X

I assumed this was a note to all drivers of this vehicle that this truck had not been equipped with a P25 radio yet.

Wow, you South Texas guys got a lot of deciphering on your hands. I was hoping to help clear the picture up a little, but I'm afraid, after I list my findings, it'll only make it worse.

I only listened to the scanner from Kingsville south to Port Isabel, and then again from Port Isabel north to Kingsville on the way home. All I did was band search 162-174 MHz and below is what I found. You guys are probably hearing stuff further west, that I wasn't getting. I wouldn't be surprised if they're organizing this geographically...

169.4500 100.0 DES full time
170.3375 $A70
170.9875 $A80
170.8375 $730 simplex ops
162.7250 $A80
169.5750 $A80 (also identified by al95)
170.5375 $A40 Harlingen (also identified by wilcomister)
171.6625 $A51

Alot of these were mixed with voice and encryption. All the voice traffic I was hearing was CBP related, only the simplex one seemed like it might have been OBP.

Wish I could help clarify things, but like I said, I fear I made it worse.

Actually this meant it WAS programmed... Also the previous post i posted a while back is correct as far as Freqs, NACS and their respective Areas

Just now on SS, I captured the freq 167.7125 w/NAC=167 P25 encrypted traffic (at 281N & 1604)
I hit store on my Pro-106 and noticed it saved it as a MOT VHF/UHF TSYS M36 (3600 baud) system.
I got maybe a half dozen quick hits. Probably FBI and the RR DB didn't have a match (even inputs,etc)
Anybody else heard this ... is it a Conv Freq or possibly a new TSYS ?

I thought it was just a conv freq and pressed store, then Man to have a look at the NAC info again
and thats when I noticed it saved as a Moto VHF/UHF type TSYS M36 (3600Baud) 167.7125 VC
I did not get a high enough decode at 9% to grab a Sys ID ? but did manage to note a TG# 39344
