• 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 have information that the downtown site has been taking offline and the control channels have been reassigned to other sites. I am still getting traffic from the DT site. The change over to P25 is also underway, Units in HCSO Dist 2 (NE) were temporally on the P25 but were moved back due to some issues. Has anyone else heard similar info or heard any new P25 TG's?

The downtown site (Motorola system) was taken down and the frequencies farmed out to 4 different sites as depicted in the database entry, see sites 26 - 29. This was done many months ago and the old downtown CCh 860.2375 is still a CCh at the new "Downtown" site.

As for the HCSO being on the P25 system, I was unaware that District 2 moved back to the analog system, but I know that District 1 is still on the P25 system as I started listening when I started to type this reply and have heard them at least twice in the last minute or so. I am anxiously waiting for District 4 (my local area) to move onto the P25 since basically I like the clarity. Oh, I just heard a District 2 dispatch on the P25 system, so...

do you have any idea where the new DT site is located? I know they are programming radios now for D1. The D2 had some mobile issues. The dispatch was not taken off line. I guess I need to down load new data fron the site and start getting ready to reprogaming my radio.

Are the new p25 TG listed yet? I just found the answer to my own question.

I'm not sure which question you already answered for yourself; however, the answers to all the questions you asked are contained in the database.
