not sure what scanner you have. RR has listings for SNACC, Pretty much everything in public service for Clark Cty. Might try the hotels, Circus Circus , mgm, Excalibar, New York New York, all cose to Circus Circus. A few have DMR, LUXOR HAS NEXDN, SO THAT IS OUT. But under Ckark Cty, there are all the Casinos listed. Surprised that they do not show encrypted, as some have DMR and that would be easy to act with.

Default LV Scanning

I live in Henderson, NV. You’ll do best with a digital scanner , Las Vegas Metro PD is Phase 2. P25. SNACC for LVFD, CCFD,Henderson PD/FD etc. SNACC is P25 Phase 1. The better sites in town are Apex Sunrise Angel.

I will bring my Uniden 396XLT. Do I load all 14 sites for the SNACC system?

thanks. would it be worth it to do the DMR upgrade to the 436 before I go? someone said las vegas PD are phase 2, that is fine with the 436. i had heard Vegas PD are encrypted. anyone verify this or not?

Default Lav metro pd

Only some of the talk groups on the metro pd system are encrypted. As for DMR there is a bunch of that in Las Vegas. Private and business no public service on DMR.

Metro PD is on their own Phase 2 system (BCD436HP, TRX 1)

Nevada Highway Patrol is on NSRS which is an analog EDACS system

The fire departments are on SNACC which is Phase 1 (BCD396XT)

You don't have to program in all the sites on SNACC, within Vegas city limits, including Henderson, the primary towers are Angel, Apex, Potosi, Simulcast, Sloan, and Sunrise.

The same goes for NSRS, you only have to program Angel, Apex, Potosi, Hotel Rio, Simulcast, Sloan, and Sunrise.
