• 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:

I have been logging the Ft Dix Correctional Facility Motorola UHF digital Trunk System for a while and here are my results:

System: B128
Base: 407.0000
Step: 12.5
Offset: 380

Trunk System Frequencies:
407.0500 (Control Channel -they rotatate)
407.3250 (Control Channel -they rotatate)
409.0125 (Control Channel -they rotatate)
409.675 (Control Channel -they rotatate)
409.9500

Active Talkgroups In Use (all are digital)
16
32
48
64
80
96
112
128
144
160
176
192
256
320
336
400
16016
16032

These talkgroups are in heavy use and they are referred to as 'channel' numbers. The users change between these talkgroups very frequently too. When they want to have a conversation they will tell the other unit to go to 'channel-x', they swicth, have their conversation, and then switch back. I did not try to determine the channle numbers, since the chatter on here between users will drive you crazy!

However, if anyone has the channel numbers, it would be nice to match them up to the various talkgroups.

That's for the Federal Prison. The State Prison probably uses one of the 800 MHz NJ DoC frequencies, but I'm not sure. I don't think they'd use that trunked system.

Midstate Correctional Facility uses 856.2125R, PL 151.4, very low power, can't be heard more than a few miles from the site. FCI currently does not use encryption.
I've only been able to identify 4 TG's with channels: 16=Ch 1, 48=Ch 2, 80=Ch 9, 192=Ch 10. All TG's are identified by their channel number, not by usage. They have TG's for East Compound, West Compound, Food Services, Recreation, Utilities, OP (outside perimeter patrol), and just plain chit chat.
