• 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 hear that Sullivan County NY is updating their radio system.
New freqs etc. I can see a new tower from where I live.
No information on what type of system and freqs there will be.
Anybody know???

Go to the sullivan county website and look under emergency services. The whole radio plan is there. It gives all the information you need to know about the new system.

A planned system has been added to the DB without monitoring confirmation? Not a great idea. By the time it starts transmitting, plans can change, without any public notice.

That is a very good point. Are those frequencies listed in the RRDB in actual use yet? If not, they I thought according to the RRDB rules, they shouldn't be listed?
I just looked at the RRDB for Sullivan County and there is no indication those channels are "future use".

The database submission indicates the system is on and is being optimized. That would probably be enough for the DB Admin to work it as confirmed.

Thanks for your input, however you're off base.

I received and processed a submission from a rock-solid source who has firsthand knowledge of the new simulcast frequencies, which was backed up by a second rock-solid source also with firsthand knowledge. Both sources indicate that the frequencies are indeed on-air for testing purposes, and that select users will start migrating to those frequencies in short order to aid with the testing process.

The clue should've been that all of the frequencies and PL tones are present in the database, which appear nowhere in the planning documents the county has published.

We all know that not all detailed information about radio systems comes from published documents. Someone will have a list of CTCSS/NAC/whatever ahead of time in order to set up the radios during buildout.

However, my question distinguishes "planned" from "being built and tested".

The repeaters are on the air, so whatever point you're attempting to make is moot. Thanks.

Two different sources both with first hand knowledge....system in the testing phase and being optimized...and the information in the DB is accurate. I don't see your point in holding off publishing the data. Regardless, sometimes information comes from outside public documents. Take that for its accuracy.

I'm surprised no one has made a post noting that the DPW repeater is now active, as listed in the database.

Yes DPW may be on air but I think you'll see other channels in the recent database update are not correct.

The frequencies are accurate, with the actual assignments obviously subject to change. So far DPW has been confirmed, the rest will be figured out easily once they go live. Only takes a few seconds to update the database, not the end of the world. ;)
