• 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:

Anyone know what the Panther Dispatch channel is on the Bass Enterprises motorola typeii system is?

Is this security in the Sundance Square area?
I am pretty sure that system is for the Sundance Square area. I am not sure where each of the base/dispatches are for though.

Origionally I helped establish that system in the DB. I know there are some contracted security on there. but for such a large system it seems lightly used. Sort of like the Texas Instruments 800 system, not heavily trafficed.

I work at Texas Instruments and they don't use an 800Mhz system here in any of the three campuses in North Texas (Dallas, Plano, Lewisville) anymore, everybody uses Nextel including security and maintenance.

RR Database I believe. It's how I got started here.

Thanks for establishing this part of the database. How did you ever determine the purpose of those talkgroup ids? I've discovered a few (conventional freqs) myself, but it's hard to determine the purpose of a frequency to name it and submit. It would seem impossible to determine something is NE Patrol or NE Dispatch. You'd have to log street names dispatched for a month to determine it was in the NE.

I've submitted a few conventional municipality frequencies I've discovered (North Hills Hospital, NRH Animal Control). Hopefully they get approved and added.

Noticed this myself. Wonder if they're utilizing something conventional as well or something. Perhaps I should take my camera on top of a garage in Sundance (as they really crack down on photographers on private property there.) and see if any activity shows up on the radio to shoo me off. On second thought probably not, if they found out I was scanning they may lock down their trunk from outsiders/scanners in retrospect.

Nice to chat with a couple of fellow scanners. Hopefully I can identify more freq's in my area!

I got your un-approved abbreviation!

Its pretty easy to figure out something is Designated NE Dispatch or Patrol if all the mobile units are confined to the NE area. Yes listening does help in determining what or who a talkgroup or frequency belongs to.

The Old TI system was a puzzling beast! it took a few weeks to get the fleetmap correct. Living virtually under the main tower helped a lot.
