• 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 don't know if the buses are on the P25 system all the time yet. You could be monitoring both parts of the system. If the scanner gives you frequencies in addition to the talkgroup IDs, look at that. For Troop E, 700=P25, 800=Motorola 4.1

Seat Bus with a tag of 4062 was on the Troop E system this afternoon. The freq. was 771.6562. As I've said, unlike the troop, I get the Seat buses without my roof antenna. I don't know why I can't get Troop E or Groton Town Pd without the roof antenna.

Same frequencies, same repeaters, very strange. It is possible that the different brands of radios or different people programming the radios have settings that cause issues with the inexpensive radios (scanners), but that is speculation.
Groton Town doesn't have it's own control channel. The control channels for Troop F's P25 is in the database. Colchester P25 site is a single site and not the simulcast yet.

Why would any Groton radio be affiliated with anything in Avon?
You can listen to any talkgroup in the system provided it’s simulcast. Apparently, Groton PD’s TG is simulcast off the Avon site. (The Avon site would cover Hartford.) This would allow for Groton to be able to talk back to their dispatch from anywhere in the state provided simulcast was turned on for that local’s site. I live in Farmington, next door to Avon. I should be able to hear Groton as long as it’s linked (simulcast) off the Avon site. I think the need to simulcast is there. Say for example Groton has a need to report to Hartford for court appearances, etc...

Eventually they'll strap certain talk groups to only work on certain sites.

Question, what is the I.D. for Groton Long Point? I known "GLP" is on the CSERN system because they told the Groton RTM they bought their own radios for their police and patterned it after the Town Police.
