Mason County was back on digital when I checked a little while ago. I guess they got whatever the problem was resolved.

I've been picking up encrypted traffic on talkgroups 5415 and 5515. Based off of the TG format in the database, I'm thinking it might be Mercer County Sheriff and McDowell County Sheriff on private channels, respectively.

If you have a scanner capable of showing radio IDs and have it set to display them, see what other TGs the radios show up on.

Perhaps a drug task force?

I didn't think about that, mike_s104. Thanks for the suggestion! I'll log down their RIDs next time.

I bet you're right, MOTOROLANUT.

Default Talk Group

6:15 Saturday night March 8th on SIRN Talk group "8429" off Martinsburg tower. I don't see it listed in the R.R. database. Testing a couple "Radios". Nothing to give me a clue to the ID.

I caught it too. RIDs were all 83xxx. Started hearing them on 3/7. All traffic has been what sounds like regular radio checks at around 7am and 5-6pm and a few others at various times. Radio checks are not standard military or fed law enforcement (CBP, FBI, DEA). All transmissions use unit numbers and a lot have an echo like at a jail or prison. So far I've heard Tygart Valley and Moundsville mentioned. It doesn't follow the WV state standard TG assignments but I'm going to guess WV Regional Jail Authority since they have facilities at both locations mentioned. I think we'll start to hear more jails/prisons (Moundsville is both) coming online and we'll be able to figure them out sooner or later.

As far as I know Logan Co is still using VHF. I was down that way a couple weeks ago and picked up activity on all the VHF channels, Law Fire and EMS. Plus I have a friend who's a FF down there and confirmed they are still analog.

Default Northern panhandle

Ohio and Marshall County are currently using the SIRN. Brooke EMA has a talk group on the Ohio County system. The new tower on Archer Hights (Brooke County) is not active. The SIRN committee is waiting on funding and frequencies for that activation. I have been told that agencies have expressed interest in Brooke and Hancock County.

I have heard that Marshall and Ohio have been using SIRN but not much talk going on their talk groups............

There is quite a bit of activity on Ohio Co talkgroups -- especially Law / Fire / EMS. There's also quite a bit of traffic on the WVSP talkgroups for Wheeling area. Brooke Fire/EMS is pretty active on the EMA freq if I'm not mistaken.

Nothing going on up in Hancock (and for the most part Brooke other than Fire) for the reasons John mentioned.

WVSP up in Hancock can still be heard regularly on VHF-Lo 40 mhz and on their 450 Mhz UHF link.

Default TGID 8429

Picked it up again 3/24/14 2PM. Quick radio check, guy gives report as 5 by 5 signal as whom ever was getting on to the freeway. Also on U.S.A. Public safety I have been getting Berkeley County police on 161.850. The channel is Tac-17 . seems to be simulcast.

Cool Virginia

161.850 ended up being a control channel out of Virginia. Why it comes in so good, I don't know.

Chester / New Cumberland will likely be able to hit the Archer Heights transmitter location. Of course, the only users in Hancock likely to be on the system are WVSP. This is probably why it hasn't come online yet. There just isn't demand. Low Band (42/45 mhz) and the 453/458 mhz extenders have worked fine for years. It wouldn't surprise me if Weirton doesn't come online for a long time given the only regular user would be WVSP.

Where is the Ohio County Simulcast Site located?

Default SIRN Questions

Any questions about the WV IRN can be asked and answered on their website. There is a contact link. I have used it several times. There is a State Police 1st Lt. who is the SIRN Committee Chairperson. He has answered my inquiries on several occasions concerning operation in Brooke and Hancock counties.

Being that it is a simulcast, there are a slew of actual sites that make up the simulcast -- and they are spread all over the place. Go look at the Ohio co Simulcast site in the database, then click on each of the callsigns associated with the Ohio co SImulcast site and you'll see the locations.
