• 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:

Flathead County P25

I go on ski trips and take lots of radio equipment along including the bcd396t.
Kalispel PD or Flathead County appears on the Big Mountain system.
The VHF site is on top of a peak 3000 feet NW of Whitefish Ski area.
It is a Motorola P25 vhf band type (qpsk)
It worked fine using the database info for plans found here.
Most of the time the radio shows dat when crossing 170.850;
and most of the time 155.97 was the channel in use.
154.92 154.9425 155.97 170.85cc
plan 1 151.01
plan2 158.73
plan3 161.01

TG 2801 and a 3 digit one which did not get stored due to missing groups.

Most of the equipment I got a look at was motorola installed in busses.
These had a aingle green display showing a 1 or 2 digit channel.

Another control channel was found at 151.31 but it was not trunk tracking.
It appears the band plan is wrong in my radio.

I put these freqs in and they did not trunk track because had incorrect 800 mhz band plans.
151.31 cc

I could decode p25 audio on the non control channels in normal scan but
the correct band plan is most likely the same as the Big Mountain System.

I will post a photo of the likely site if possible.
