• 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'm visiting Huntsville this week and have been monitoring the MSFC/RA System. It appears the database has some errors concerning this system. So far, I have found two control channels one is 406.2375 the other is 406.8375. 406.8375 is not listed in the database as a control channel. I have also found voice channels that are not listed 409.2750 and 409.6375. There may be others I have not yet found.

In addition, I have found the following unidentified talkgroups:

3216 Encrypted
4304
5744
9616
3632
10672 Encrypted
3536
3504
4944
5104
3696
7024

I've noticed that Talkgroup 8016 is listed as Marshall SFC Police, but when they call dispatch they ID as Redstone.

Does anyone have any additional information about this system or can you Id the unidentified talkgroups?

Thanks

It is really nothing for trunked systems to change their control channels around. Langley did it to me a year ago. Just submit the change.

Often for DOD trunked systems, I will load all the frequencies for that very reason.

A question for the unlisted voice channels. Are they part of the trunked system or are they being used conventionally?

Though I will not swear to it, I wouldn't be surprised if the Arsenal and NASA security have been combined, so Redstone as a base/dispatch wouldn't surprise me. I won't say I've been all over the Arsenal, but I have covered a fair bit of it and I've not encountered specific fenced off areas that are identifiable as NASA or Army (unlike Langley AFB and NASA Langley). I'm not saying there aren't any, but I just have never encountered any.

Lynn, thank you for the information. The voice channels were part of the trunked system.
I believe you are correct about Redstone and NASA combining. I'm on my way back home today so hopefully someone will make the corrections to the database.

I'm visiting this weekend but only have analog trunking. I'll see what I can learn.
