• 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:

0 (0) 002 (2) North OKC Oklahoma 770.55625 771.48125 772.10625c 772.98125 773.63125 774.13125 774.68125
This system sounds great. Hardly any simulcast distortion because it's the only system using the 772-775MHZ. Nice to see it active.
I did notice it mentioned APCO P25 PII but it doesn't have TDMA slots probably PI. I have also noticed someone has been adding Midwest City and Oklahoma County SO to the list of talk groups. I have yet to hear those. I wonder how they know Midwest City and Oklahoma County SO is there. I thought Oklhaom County SO opted out of this system Maybe the Sheriff changed his mind because Citizen Potawatomi Nation owns it. Maybe new management had a better plan for OCSO. Nothing new was noted.

Simulcast distortion can happen on any band.
Its all in how the system is set up (multi towers using the same frequencies on each tower which can over lap one another). If your scanner can hear more than 1 of those towers then you get simulcast distortion. If your on the farthest side of the system and your scanner only picks up 1 tower then you have no issues with LSM. Assuming your also not using a SDS scanner as those will properly decode those types of systems.

EDIT Well i just looked at the system link and each of the sites is a single tower location, not multi tower so it better come in nice and clear if you are in range. There is no LSM with a system like that.

I am smack dab in the middle of Oklahoma City. No problems hearing it. I use DSDPlus Fastlane 2.186 to listen.

I know it’s Midwest City because it’s the same dispatcher/traffic as it’s other channel!

All I ever see is OU Medical Police or Pottawatomie Nation Police on both sites (772.10625 and 856.7875). Still have not yet seen Midwest City Police.

Not sure how they are using it but I have heard them on as late as two weeks ago.
