• 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:

Another round of fires today - this time in West Bexar County near the Medina County line.

154.280 TX FIRE-1
151.385 TX AIR-2

On the SA EDACS System:

Anyone know what the Mutual Aid lineup is? Both BCFA and SAFD are using these channels.

Lindsay is that all logged from Hill Country?

I have been trying gold but had to put the feed on Topperwein because gold has been switching control channels again all day in some cases twice an hour they would hop between 4 and 8. Im not sure whats going that it keeps flipping back and forth, but it is giving unitrunker fits.

If you're using on older Uniden like the '780XLT - program the control channels in one bank and set the radio to scan. If the radio supports computer control, check the "Chase" option on the Receiver's Info tab.

For today's fire out near the airport, the following was being used on the SA EDACS system

1884 was patched to TX AIR-2 (151.385) and Eagle was talking with ground units
1878 was called "AID-6"

I'm having a hard time figuring out how SA has their mutual aid channel lineup.

Every day and every different fire talkgroups 1825-1900 are being used differently.

Ok, I think I got this figured out now. It appears that there is a new fleet of talkgroups on the SA EDACS system simply called "Mutual Aid Channels" or "Aid Channels" for short.

For these fire incidents - the SA Command bus shows up on scene and patches whatever they feel necessary to those talkgroups - and that can be arbitrary. All BCFA and other Fire Departments all have these channels in their radios.

The AID channels are:

Code:
1873	M AID-1		Mutual Aid 1	M
1874	M AID-2		Mutual Aid 2	M
1875	M AID-3		Mutual Aid 3	M
1876	M AID-4		Mutual Aid 4	M
1877	M AID-5		Mutual Aid 5	M
1878	M AID-6		Mutual Aid 6	M
1879	M AID-7		Mutual Aid 7	M
1880	M AID-8		Mutual Aid 8	M
1881	M AID-9		Mutual Aid 9	M
1882	M AID-10	Mutual Aid 10	M
1883	M AID-11	Mutual Aid 11	M
1884	M AID-12	Mutual Aid 12	M
1885	M AID-13	Mutual Aid 13	M
1886	M AID-14	Mutual Aid 14	M
1887	M AID-15	Mutual Aid 15	M

From what I can glean Lindsay, this new lineup started 3 days ago, I have heard talk referring to the new memo that came out. Also not sure if you caught this or not but 517 appears to be a ACCESS channel and I have logged hits on 518 and 519 that seem to indicate they might be access channels as well.
