• 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:

For those who haven't noticed, there has been some control channel changes in the triad area. Mt Shepherd (RFSS1 site 50) now has a pri CC of 858.7875 & an alt CC of 858.0125. Cane Mt (RFSS1 site 10) now has a pri CC of 859.5875 & an alt CC of 859.3125.
Much thanks for this info!

Unknown TG 52242 heard on the Yadkinville site. Limited traffic heard so far. Heard "US-421" mentioned.

One of the unit's RID was 2115176... didn't catch the other. Seems to match the SHP's RIDs.

Well, I just heard traffic on both the Davidson EMS and sheriff VHF frequency but heard nothing on VIPER on the Lexington site... hmmmm.
As far as I know the only vhf-VIPER patch is on County fire. The SD is using the VIPER some for its Vice/Narc and Detectives but all of their regular patrol traffic is still on UHF. EMS is not using the VIPER system yet for dispatch or general traffic. There is a patch in place on County fire but right now it is missing the first few seconds of each transmission. The Tyro tower is being built right now, The denton tower is up and the Thomasville tower is slated to start hanging steel on the 18th of this month. Hopefully the system will be complete in the next couple months and we will be moved over to it.

Yeah LPD & LFD are both on VIPER full time.
To paraphrase the roaming rules for Local and County users.

-The home county and one county in each direction, with regard to what sites that may have affiliations.
-The exception, I think, is still "XYZ CO-MUTAID".

I think this is still the case, with maybe an exception or 2.
YMMV.

Yes that is correct. The MA talkgroups and the SW talkgroups will talk across the whole system. There are some others such as the DPR talkgroups that are used outside of its home county.

I have a note on that TGID as possible NC SHP Spec Ops, I think they do like interdiction work.

I think the Staley VIPER tower (Site 056) has been rebanded. I was monitoring the CC on 853.9875 up until yesterday when it disappeared. I am searching for it with my SDR.. but haven't found it yet. Will post when I do.

I'd check 700 MHz too. I'm just a bit too far out to hear that tower.

Indeed that is it! SDR showing the Staley CC on 774.6815 -- what a drag! I just bought a new antenna that isn't made for 774mhz... a 15 element yagi covering 806-960mhz... argh!

Just got DSD+ FL and ran it on a nearby VIPER site and noticed that the DB is missing some frequencies. This is what I am getting on the Clemmons site. The license in the DB is also out of date. I'll submit an update...
