• 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 am new to this, and just got my 396 last week. I have been entering systems on the unit
with good success using ARC396. I seem to be having trouble with one "conventional"
system and was hoping somebody in the group might be able to shed some light on the
situation.

Look at the bottom of the linked page for "Hamilton Street Railway" (HSR)

http://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?ctid=4296

The is the company that I work for, and the radio system is for a fleet of over 200 transit
buses in the city. The system has a Base, and each bus is capable of transmitting to the
dispatch office. The dispatch office is able to uniquely identify the source of each bus
transmission on their computer screen, so they know which vehicle each call is coming
from.

Here is the situation. With the published Frequencies, I consistently receive the Base
transmissions within a 20 radius no problem. However, I only get one side of the
conversation (the base). If I am within about 1000 meters of any bus, I can pick up their
transmission on the "input, but otherwise I have been unable to receive them.

Question: how can I get both ends of the conversation for all vehicles and dispatch?

Thanks for your help.

Yes. The talkgroup in the trunked system is used by the HSR Inspectors for communication with each other. The "conventional" system is the one used for communication between dispatch and individual or groups of buses.
