• 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:

Hi guys, I just programmed in the new P25 system into my 996XT via Radioreference...

I can see it stopping on various talkgroups, however I am getting very little to no audio.

I have heard a few pieces of conversation, but they only last for a second or so...

What am I doing wrong? Is there a setting I am missing?

regards,

Jason

system delay

hold and delay are two different things
hold is how long it stays on the system
hold is how long it stays after squelch break
if it is set to a negative number like-2 it will start to scan after 2 seconds no matter what
that should be set to 2 seconds
this could be it and is just a guess

What talkgroups are you seeing pop up? I dont follow this system anymore but when I was working in Mississauga there wasn't much activity on it. Anything encrypted would show the talkgroup but no audio, would be heard.

So I figured out my receive problem....it was an antenna issue. For some reason this P25 system is very antenna sensitive. For example, I can use my DPD traintenna to pick up Go Transit's P25 system no problem, but the new Peel P25 is much harder to pull in I find. Where is the tower/towers located?

I am getting a lot of talk groups showing up which are not in the database yet. I simply do not know what I am listening to yet, so I will have to monitor and report back.

The tower "North" is located on Mississauga Rd, just north of Olde Base Line Rd.

I've seen a lot of 1xxx talkgroups showing up lately, all encrypted, likely Peel Police. Other users of the old system are migrating over slowly.

I haven't found any issues hearing the system through my travels, from Shelburne, down to 401 / Argentia Rd.

If it's simulcast than chances are the tower on Charleston Sideroad is part of it. I used to travel down to Argentia & Kitimat for work. Saw the old tower on Charleston pulled down and the new 300 footer go up. I actually have the old fire repeater from the site (154.800MHz) still in use in the amateur bands.
