Come on folks, WSP IS NOT DOING TRUNKING for the normal daily funcitions.

They are/will stay on there normal VHF Frequency's in 12.5 narrow band and will be going to digital format without encraption. THATS ALL

They are having newer radios that HAVE trunking, install for the national emerengcy services interop capilities.

Wow, so they have 67 days to complete this change over. Should be interesting. How does it sound down there Poorfarm? Pretty good audio quality?

Probably due to not being simulcasted.

Are we able to monitor the WSP Primary Dispatch frequency? I live in Walla Walla. It would be the same frequency (155.5200) as PoorFarm is talking about in Benton County.

I have been hearing WSP-Kennewick/Walla Walla on their primary dispatch frequency (155.5200) with no problems on an old realistic crystal scanner... I thought they went digital?

Kennewick/Walla Walla radio seems to have gone back to their old system. The P25 is not on now. Problems with it? Or was it just an experiment? My 396T was not having any problems with the P25 after I finally figured out how to make it look for P25. I could sure hear the "decoder" working at the start of each transmission.

Trying to figure that out myself Branden. I think I set the CTCSS/DCS setting in the 155.520 channel on my scanner to SEARCH. But looking at my scanner now it is not showing that it is in search, it is showing off. That's the only thing I can think of I changed. All I was getting was squelch before and then it was sounding like a trunked system. Squelch sound when they keyed up then it decoded and came through clear. It showed P25 on the screen. I'll have to wait for them to turn it back on to see if that's what I did.

No problem. Just curious. Are you in the Tri-Cities?

Setting the 396T to listen to conventional P25 is easy. Just turn off the CTCSS or the DCS squelch setting for that channel in the menu settings. The 396T will automatically decode a P25 conventional channel if it is set to open squelch.

If you have the 396XT, the procedure is close the the same. There is a setting in the menu that allows you to set if what you want to hear is analog, digital, or both.

With either version of scanner if you were to set a CTCSS PL code, the channel will automatically default to analog only since P25 does not use CTCSS or DCS.

Question

Thanks Randy, I wasn't sure what I did to make it work, maybe I turned everything off. Will have to wait to see what happens if they go back to P25. The one thing that I would like to listen to is WADOT. Other than Snoqualmie Pass, I never hear anything from them. Setting up the LTR has me somewhat confused. Anybody hear them?

You won't be able to set up any scanner other than using a computer and a software program to track WsDOT as they are LTR Multinet which is different than other LTR formats. The best you can do is listen conventionally to either status or home channels which means listening back and forth to either.

Does anyone know when all the posts will move to digital? I live in Seattle and all posts I monitor are all still analog. Only 36 days... it's getting close. What is going to happen?

Here in Kennewick I'm hearing them testing P25 on F-17, 154.935, today, Thursday. Sounds really clear. Various tones and warbles going out.

Does anyone know what is going on with the new radio system? Only a couple days before the narrowband deadline! Are they planning on going digital the day of?
