• 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:

774.48125 has been on the air as a control channel for the SEGARRN system in Liberty County. The BCD396XT displayed 02C5h-0105, which would make it site 5 for the SEGARRN. So far I haven't been able to find any further information on it via FCC searches. I've yet to hear any talkgroup activity, just the active control channel.

I live in Hinesville. I'll listen for any P25 activity and report my findings. I haven't noticed any digital antennas on the patrol vehicles yet, but I check every day.

The last time I went thru Liberty on I-95, I did hear some Bryan County TG activity on the Liberty site. Keep in mind that you won't always be looking for mobile antennas. It's common for agencies using 700/800 systems to go with just handheld radios instead of issuing handhelds and putting mobiles in cars (questionable policy, but there it is).

Mike, I think I have an answer on the Effingham license but I need to look into it a bit further. Sorry to be so late replying to that, but I've been busy lately. Hopefully I can follow up this afternoon.

Updated. Any word on Effingham County WQOD539? Which site is it?
The frequencies for that license are identical to the ones licensed to Chatham County. It seems that what they are doing, until Effingham can acquire the funding to put up their own site, is putting up a temporary site is south Effingham County using Chatham's frequencies to cover a problem coverage area in northern Chatham County.

Hope that makes sense...

"digital antennas" sort of reminds me of the TV adverts in the old days when there were ads for "color antennas."

I've no idea what a "digital antenna" is, the system here in Bulloch county is analog 800 MHz and I'm pretty sure the mobile antennas are the same as the Effingham P-25 mobile antennas!

Oh yes, there is plenty of P25 activity here through SEGARRN site #103 {Statesboro] but it is mostly either Bryan, or Effingham units with a smattering of Chatham units for good measure since Bulloch is still analog.

Heard on SEGARRN, TG 877 (not listed on rr.com) key ups but no voice traffic logged. UID logged has been previously associated with GSP Rincon (1834x) now being regularly heard for the last 4 or 5 days on new TG 367
Traffic logged about SAVCOM reprogramming troopers radios but details not known to me.

Previous SEGARRN TG 1041 used by GSP has been removed by rr.com w/o explanation, probably as a submission from some one who wishes to remain anon.
