When we get heavy rain, I even watch my G5 lose signal of times ("Out Of Range") only to return a short time later when the sun returns

Properties of higher frequencies, even worse for microwave systems. Since the TV change to digital and the use higher frequencies I lose some stations based on weather, rain or fog.

Will be in the Southport area in a few weeks for R&R, and I have never have problems with drop outs, but again I am using XTS and XTL radios.

I am putting together a few systems for NCSHP and other agencies on VIPER and I am only adding sites in the 2 or 3 counties I travel daily but I still want to limit the number of freqs scanned as to not miss much.
RR lists them all of them per site and highlights the primary and secondary freqs. Should I only add those to each site, or add them all?
Thanks

You can probably get away with only programming the primary (RED) and alternate (BLUE) frequencies for each site.

However, for the most part, programming all of each site's frequencies won't negatively impact scanning as long a you have a good signal and reception. Once the radio finds the proper control channel frequency, it really doesn't care about the others (unless the signal quality drops).

Question VIPER Counties

I was wondering something. For all the Counties listed under the VIPER system page, would it be fair to say if the Counties don't have TAC 1-8 or multiple TAC channels that means they aren't using the system primarily yet? I've noticed the counties that do use VIPER have a good amount of talkgroups including a few TAC channels. And some of the Counties that I know don't use it yet only have a few basic talkgroups like Fire, EMS, Sheriff, EM, TAC, & Mutual Aid. That seems to be the basic channels offered until primary use. Would this assumption of mine be accurate? I was mainly wondering because I was trying to find out if Alexander County was using the system yet or still using their VHF/UHF channels, and I can't find any info searching the forums here. Thanks in advance!

David

You can't really make assumptions. Some counties have their own systems... some counties are very small and don't need alot of talkgroups. In some cases, it could just be that all of a counties talkgroups aren't listed (yet) or maybe they are encrypted so we don't know which is which... lots of possibilities...

For departments that are still on their conventional channels you sometimes can find the primary dispatch channel being simulcast on their VIPER talkgroup. Bertie and Craven counties are this way.

Wouldn't it be nice if there were one or two folks in each county who were the "expert," so to speak, and the "go-to" person for scanning knowledge?

It'd also be nice if people from the counties with limited or new Viper radios would add them to the Viper Radio ID Wiki page, so we can track where transmissions are coming from.

Agree. While I'm guilty of not keeping an eye on the Wiki pages, I'll make that my Mid Year Resolution . . .
The VIPER radios seem to be in pretty good shape for my county, but I'll try to build the general county page because it seems a little slim. Thanks for the nudge.

Lincoln County Sheriffs have now lit their VIPER TG (28004) with simulcast of their UHF. There is about a 1/2 second delay and all units appear on the same UID: 1090088.
That goes along with the Fire dispatch simulcasting on 1090000.
The “com center” has been heard on TGs 1090001 and 1090002.
Denver’s Engine1 has the only “unit ID”: 1090136 so far.

Thanks for the information, I went ahead and updated the Wiki page with the RID/UID information.

Default Is Rowan County Simulcast on Viper?

Heard Rowan county assisting with funeral escort on Viper Foxtrot 2 today, all units had RID of 1591895, just wondering if anyone can tell me if they are simulcast on Viper or if they have there own viper radios with individual RIDs? The Viper RID Wiki doesn't have any Rowan info.

Thanks

Many Counties were assisting with that escort including Durham. I can say that Durham was using individual RIDs along with Wake agencies that helped as well.

Default Macon County EMS

Macon County has shifted primary EMS dispatch to VIPER TG 29001, effective this week. The UID for Dispatch is 1130013. EMS units have been using VIPER for all patient reports to hospitals throughout Western NC for some time. My understanding is that Macon County intends to shift ALL emergency dispatching traffic to VIPER but fire units will be converted at a future date.
