• 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:

Been awhile since I turned on unitrunker and monitored the local marcs radio since ive had to format and reinstall , I discovered some changes system that are not listed in the database yet :

TG 54780 listed as Auglaize County Tac 2 has been running in encrypted ( P4 Service ) mode all day so far and probably should be noted.

After taking a nap and coming back to it I noticed that LCN 00-149 851.9375 must have auto populated it self into the channel list.

So I went to the DB listing to see if there's been any updates etc. before i re download the site and get everything synced up and noticed unitrunker now shows the alt control channel as LCN 01-1520 771.50625 (not as shown on the db page as 769.35625)

I also noticed during periods of heavy site use ( during multiple incidents happening at same time )
I seen voice activity ( 21 hits ) on the alt control channel ( 771.50625 ) which i found to be a bit odd.

There was a post made about control channel changes and the explination of it made,
so i didn't was to submit anything yet since it seems to be in the middle of a debate amungst db admins.

Here is a screen grab of the channel activity :

Edit: I'll probabbly completely dump the site and let it repopulate again to confirm ( in a few days )
Edit #2 : Also TG 65536... is that the FCC id morse code ? it doesnt show and source just that it calls on every channel.

Yes, TG 65536 is CWID and I do typically see it occurring on all channels.

Wapak was one of the earlier sites to come online. Stands to reason there may be changes. I'm glad you're catching them. Yes, please remove and let it repopulate in Unitrunker and then submit the changes. Always good [for all of us, in general] to check that kind of stuff once in a while.

And, the Alt control channel(s) are always going to be voice channels in a pinch if system is loaded. Doesn't happen often where I live because traffic isn't that high.

I did update the DB with your initial frequency findings, but please feel free to submit a full update once you've gathered the info, including current information about peers/neighbors.

I didn't change anything with the Tac channel's encryption yet. If you still experience full encryption on it when you go to submit the other data, include that in there and we'll update it to an E talkgroup..

Thanks!

Mike

Just cleared my unitrunker channel list and letting it re-populate and will keep you posted.


Screen shot of the current peers list:
http://beam.66ghz.com/peers.png

I'm wondering if i should hold off a week or two since there might be some site work going on .

So far the initial re population of channels in unitrunker is showing some more changes already.
(channels possibly added / changed )

Thanks for the peers update. I updated the Wapak site info in the DB with the updated peer list.
