• 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:

Might be a programming issue, Uniden DMR is usually pretty effective vs Whistler TRX series, I have a few DMR systems the TRX-2 won't touch vs my 996P2 with DMR.

The license https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?fccCallsign=WQXG843 has DMR emission designator. It has three sites with each site having one channel. That means It is probably not trunked.
My electric coop used to be quite active on FM during outages. They are DMR since 2013 and I almost never hear them, even during outages. Not never, but almost never. Maybe they just do a lot of traffic via smartphone (or some sort of data network with a tablet or something).

Good day Scanner people For the past few months, I have tried to listen to this local electric utility located in Stillwater, Ok. I cannot put up any traffic and I know it is DMR
system. Cannot tell if it is trucked or has been
encrypted
or what is the issue. I have a https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?action=fle&stid=40&en=CENTRAL RURAL ELECTRIC COOPERATIVE
Any help is appreciated.
I know the KAMO system in the area is NEXEdge. I hate to suggest spending more money for a Kenwood update, but the FCC licenses aren't always correct. Do you hear digital traffic if you monitor in analog mode?

Yes, I have the NEXEdge, so that is my step in this process. Thanks. I hear the 10 dmr burst but no color code or no talk. interesting That why I think they have encrypted the dmr system/ W5TOR

Next to a scanner...
I'm pretty sure it's a IP site connect between the sites - the talkgroups should show up on all sites (if they use them). A few years ago, I made notes of the Mulhall site (152.300) using color code 14, talkgroup 2001 on TS1.
