Just watched your video. Thanks for posting it.


What are the WACN, NAC's and Site ID's and Subsite ID's you are seeing on the new system?

Nothing on Bedford so far. While I was eating lunch, I took quick peek at all of their frequencies. Nothing except an EDACS CC and the normal working channel traffic you would expect.

Default Amherst P-25 as of 2017-05-18 @ 13:16

Got a control channel lock on Amherst at lunchtime today.



AMHERST @ 13:16 2017-05-18
WACN...........$927C2
REGION/SITE....$0A (decimal 10)
RFSS...........$0A (decimal 10)
SITE...........$0A (decimal 10)
SITE NAC.......$0A (decimal 10)
CONTROL CHANNEL: 858.98750 / 813.98750



For some sneaking suspicion, I fully expect the WACN and all NAC's and possibly the SITE ID's to change before regular users occupy the system.

Time will tell...

I was wondering when they would get around to switching over. Thanks for posting the info guys. I'll have to punch in the system when I get home and monitor the testing.

Thanks for the info. I usually leave a PRO-668 recording at home 24/7. It should catch something.

Was down in Roanoke yesterday. Got a strong signal with DAT on the Bedford site but nothing on the other two. No voice traffic at all though while I was down there.

At first I had to put my scanner on record all day, then they started testing all the time for 2 weeks, I haven't heard anything for a week, I would assume they are done testing Lynchburg, I have yet to hear anything on Bedford or Amherst audio wise, Bedford didn't even have DAT a week ago, I would probably bet they will test on Amherst next then Bedford last by the way the DATs came up, Lynchburg 1st Amherst 2nd and Bedford 3rd, but that's a speculation
