    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 recently acquired the 436 and opted for the DMS/Turbo Upgrade. Checking under Settings (radio) indicates the DMS/Turbo Upgrade is installed.

As a test, I selected the Salt River Project. I created a Favorite List and Appended the entire SRP System. In the FL Editor, I confirm the System Type as "MotoTRBO Trunk". I have left all seven Sites unavoided even though some are showing little or no signal from my location. Using the Analysis feature, I show the following (subjective) readings of the Signal Strength bar graph.

Chandler = Zero
Mesa = Zero
Sacaton = Zero
Shaw Butte = 9/10
South Mountain = zero
Thompson Peak = zero
White Tanks 4.5/10

I am near I-17 and West Greenway. After about an hour, I have not heard a peep from any TG from any Site. I have ALL service types checked. Maybe I have forgotten some other setting? From years ago, I remember they used to use their radios in the Irrigation Department all night long. So, even though the weather is good (no power outages) I thought I might pick up something. It is a fairly large operation.

I guess my question is: Is anyone hearing any transmissions from SRP using a 436 with the DMA/Turbo Upgrade?

Thanks!

Update: I am running this test using ProScan. It shows a two-second "hit" on TG 3801 from the South Mountain Site (Operations - Security). Digital type = CON and freq = 939.3875/2.

During the week, the Customer Service and DOC talkgroups are very active during work hours. I occasionally monitor the South Mountain Site.
Thanks cellphone! Yes, daytime transmissions sound more like normal activities. Ran ProScan overnight. Logged multiple hits from White Tanks, Shaw Butte, and South Mountain Sites:

Observation: Very active TRS with about 15000 (overnight) hits averaging less than 1/10 second duration each. I wonder if these extremely short blips/transmissions could be some sort of automated security and/or water distribution digital signals? During that time I was not aware of the transmissions. I didn't hear anything.
