• 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:

New Danville City Radio TRS Systems

Danville Va Police has installed a new radio system. Does any one know what the frequency is?
The Danville City government in past years has had a number of different radio systems.

Wade your way through these new FCC trs licenses all of which will have analog and NXDN/NEXEDGE emission operating capability. Wanna bet which mode they will be using?

Here are three of their latest licenses:

WQWP940
WQWU959
WQWW659

One method to id a licensee's authorized emission mode(s)

I do I find out the system type? I an new to this.

Thanks

There are different methods which can be used. The method I prefer is within the target callsign license select the"emission" field and note its' contents. Next using the latest version of the "Emission Designator List" from the below APCO website compare the license's emission code(s) to a match(es) on the list. In time some of the more frequently licensed emissions easily can be recalled from memory and checking the EDL every time isn't required.

Great, Now I know its a 4K00F1W 6.25 kHz voice and data NXDN (Narrow IDAS, NEXEDGE).
If I could just figure out how to setup the Sentinel software for the BCD536HP I would have it made.

Unfortunately the 536 does not support decoding NXDN/NEXEDGE systems. Uniden has posted a planned upgrade in the near future for DMR MOTOTRBO reception for an additional charge but no mention I am aware of also providing NXDN/NEXEDGE decoding in the future. You can program them as conventional frequencies but unless Danville operates in the unencrypted analog mode you won't hear anything..

About 4 years ago I configured a homemade system to receive MOTOTRBO and NXDN/NEXEDGE transmissions. It involved time, expense and equipment modification not recommended for the non-technically inclined. For further information on this subject read the appropriate RR forums which include the ones related to Digital Software.
