• 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:

Thanks GTR8000, I noticed a new TG is added to the database and it is identical to the METRO25 system. I know both systems are Harris and the site map in the FCC filing specifically left out NYC.
Is this system (26E) and METRO25 (26D) integrated like an ISSI (whatever the Harris equivalent term for that!)?

The two systems will be aware of each other, however the exact method of connection is unclear at this point. As far as I was told a while back, they are not sharing a core. ISSI is an industry standard term for the method of connecting two P25 systems, regardless of manufacturer.

The audio is really loud..

I have those 2 uid's logged on that tg here in East Islip via Unitrunker. Have to check my 436 recorded session, but heard lots of testing on that tg in Mastic NY. Strong signal from Sunrise down to Eleanor ave (indian reservation, gas 2.54)

Yep, already noted in the database.

Those with a keen eye will note that the Site NAC = the Site RFSS's hexadecimal value for all five cells.

I have manually entered these in my BCD536 and 436, I am showing signal bars but not hearing testing. Is there a BandPlan that needs to be entered somewhere?

No bandplan needs to be entered. Testing is sporadic and not on all cells yet, so there may not be any activity on whichever cell you're picking up.

Really Metro-25 is a Harris system? Didn’t know that, thought it was Motorola after I saw MTA and troopers with APX radios lol
