• 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:

Permian basin regional interoperability network

Gomez Peak, Coates Ranch (Iraan), King Mountain (McCamey) and Glass Mountain have been transferred to the GATRRS (13E) core. The remaining sites exclusive of Pool Road and Troy Road (Odessa) will be absorbed into 13E 4Q 2018.

Kinda looked at it in RR. So when all are absorbed, does this system go "dead". Or does is work the same as before (same local talk groups etc), just extended out further? I guess in essence, PBRIN is completely removed from the database, and the two Odessa sites get wrapped up as a new TRS in the database.

how do I load the King Mountain site in a TRX-2. I live in Upton co....
Use the Library import in EZ-Scan. That site is now linked in GATRRS. It's no longer part of the Permian Basin system. Based on the OP's comments, it appears that the rest of the sites on the Permian Basin system will also be moving. Be sure to get the latest library update for EZ-Scan (dated today) before proceeding with the import.

is there a program for the TRX-2 like my old pro 197 where I can see the site info, SSID sig strength and such?
Pro96Com - Control channel decoder for P25 Trunked Radio Systems
I don't know if it will show signal strength but I think it shows everything else.
I don't know if the TRX scanners have built in analysis mode or not.

There is also http://www.unitrunker.com but I don't think the latest public version supports TRX scanners PC I/O output. It will work if you do a discriminator tap mod to the scanner.

this is true I can still hear the local SO's on there analog and digital channels, I'm kind of curious to see who ends up using it.... The PBRPC system didn't get much use from any one but Odessa &Ector county

You may not hear any of it anymore that way. For giggles, i decoded the Midland VHF Site. The only sites left it talks to are the northern sites. One site (dont remember which one) still shows but fails to link. Suppose the rest of it (VHF at least) will be moved as planned for Q4 this year (if I recall correctly). No idea if Odessa/Ector will even be heard on the exisitng sites once cutover is made.

The Midland, Gardendale and Notrees 800 sites are owned by the PBRPC, and will move to GATTRS.
