• 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:

No idea. I would recommend checking the database for LTR standard systems in San Joaquin county, as well as checking that Mt Diablo system in my previous post. But since you are in CHP's Valley Division they may do things differently than Golden Gate, and probably use a different commercial SMR provider (and band) for their radio systems.

I loaded in the LTR frequencies for the Mt. Diablo tower and programmed the FSP entry. Seemed to be garbage trucks or some sort. BUT, if you ever want to hear some random or comical conversations then listen to that LTR system during the weekdays.

Oh I know, they are hilarious! :)

It's not surprising that the talkgroup ID is wrong, because these commercial systems constantly change as customers add and drop service. If you wouldn't mind, try programming a "wildcard talkgroup" (or 'ID search'), whichever way your scanner allows you to monitor all talkgroups on the system without programming each talkgroup individually. You'll hear a lot of comical stuff, plus you might be able to find the new FSP dispatch talkgroup if they moved. They should be pretty easy to find since the dispatcher will sound much more professional than the others, because they are dispatched by CHP Valley Division.

I wish I could help, but I no longer live in the area.

Got a POSSIBLE lead on FSP for Stockton.

Mt. Diablo South Peak tower, DEC 0-02-84, it is not listed. Per CHP CAD F5 was dispatched and I head a 5 10-97 on that LTR channel.

INIGO88,
I do have that entire system in ID Search which is how I found that unlisted DEC that MIGHT be FSP. Will add more details as I find them.

Hey Wayne, while you're here, any idea on what FSP uses in the valley?

I searched back through your old posts on the UHF T-band Crystal LTR systems from back in 2006-2007, but those seem to be limited to Golden Gate Division. Surprisingly for LTR, those Crystal systems seem to still be in operation today.

I would imagine their own company freqs (i.e., the company providing the FSP service). They don't operate the same as in the SF Bay area from what I've seen.

Maybe the CSAA typicals.

Excellent. I'd imagine the typical LTR systems serving the valley would be possibles as well then, like Pine Hill, etc.

This is a general question pertaining to FSP and CHP. Why is it that FSP is separately dispatched from CHP. I understand why Fire and AMR/Valleycomm split long ago because of the large amount of traffic. Least down here on the White, there seems to be a good ratio of air downtime and busy air time given #/types of incidents.

In summary: wouldn't it be more beneficial for FSP to be either directly dispatched by CHP or be allowed to communicate directly to the officers rather than having information relayed between dispatches?

It is out of the Sac Comm Ctr, only thing I can think of for other smaller centers is staffing. CHP Sac has a dedicated FSP desk.

So the FSP desk in Sacramento is dispatching for FSP all over the state? In my mind it would make more sense to incorporate FSP into being another unit of theirs and dispatch them appropriately. My guesses would be the difference between FSP being a program from CHP and not actually CHP itself.

No, sorry...just the sac area is out of Sac Comm. On SRRCS.
