• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I found a P25 Phase 2 control channel on 173.7875 with no voice activity yet. Using Pro96Com and UniTrunker, I see the following values for the system:

System ID: 4D5
RFSS: 003
Site ID: 067
WACN: BEE00

Anyone have any idea who may be using this? I'm hearing this from the San Leandro hills.

I'm receiving it as well in Fremont. Signal is strong...possibly from the South Bay. I can rule out Sunol or Diablo as I am in the shadow of their sites. I'm reading the same control channel info that you are and I'll check it often for changes.

I would probably not worry too much about this system if its going to be a federal system. There won't be any digital clear talkgroups. The feds will tighten up their belts on this system for sure.

To each their own.

It's not always about monitoring radio traffic for some people. It's about gathering information ABOUT the system that's important.
