While using the corner reflector at home, I found that I did better with it mounted two feet above ground than high in the air.
During our stand off here in Martinez not so long ago, I laid my PSR500 on its side, on the ground, and was able to receive most of the radio traffic. Just wish deafening the receiver was a viable solution. Or that I was back in Vacaville. That trunk system is actually pretty good and never had these issues. Thanks all for the input!

We all know today's scanners absolutely suck with this system. So my question is, has anybody tried to use a Unication G5 on EBRCS? If so, how's the performance?

They will be selling a TDMA/Phase II upgrade that can be downloaded and flashed so the impending update to TDMA won't be a worry.

Tnx!

There's a long thread about them (general, not EBRCS) here: https://forums.radioreference.com/un...d-scanner.html

I haven't read all of it, but it generally sounds like they do way better than scanners, including simulcast. Kinda pricey for the limited use, though.

Agreed on the price. I just hate not being able to monitor the system effectively. I was pondering buying the new Uniden handheld, but even then I'm more likely to be in the same position with my PSR-500. I was hoping someone might be using one on this system to give specific feedback. Guess time will tell! =)

Yes, I've been using a G4 for EBRCS since September 2016. Yes, it works much better than my PSR-500 and Pro-668/WS1080. I also use it at work to monitor myself as I'm a police dispatcher. Inside the comm center, the PSR-500 is so choppy it is not usable. The G4 will catch about 95% or more of all transmissions, just missing 1 or two transmissions during a 2 hour period I'm on the radio. It works well to monitor specific talk groups but lacks any scanning features.

Let me know what questions you have about it.

I use a G5 on EBRCS and it works great. Can even hear the system out here in the valley and up into Sacramento. Receive is excellent. Well worth the purchase.

I'm going to pull the trigger in February to buy the G5. Does anyone know if there's a resource that has the 2 tone frequencies for Solano County fire? I don't hear tones on the VHF Contra Costa so they must be paging out some other way.

I'll stick with my apx8000xe to monitor the EBRCS. Sounds amazing😊

Default Talkgroup 10205, Jan 16th

Been heard TG 10205 all morning. Sounds like surveillance ops, but I don't recognize the 5-digit TG number.

Radio ID's seen are 3296054 and 3296129.

~1005 hrs: "Hey, I'm going to find a restroom."
~1020 hrs: "Back on station on Vallejo." (I believe he said "on", it could have been "in")
~1110 hrs: "Go ahead, brother."
- "Hey, there's been no lights, no movement, so, ugh, let's go meet back up at the CHP."
- "Copy that."

Could this possibly be federal?

Wow, never seen that list before, but thanks!

Would be very convenient if an EBRCS employee could chime in one day...

I think it's parole. Caltrans is supposed to have some stuff in the 100 range too.

It seems they've gone back to the way of using tac channels instead of command channels, and when they assign tac channels, its first come first served instead of Fremont being command 5/6, command 7 for newark/UC...etc....
Any update on this? Is ACFD using these now instead of Command 16-19 and Tac 36-39?

Yes, they are all on there. Very annoying. Alameda City, Fremont, Alameda County...anyone dispatched by ALCO Fire is sharing those tacs.

And for each incident, instead of having a command and tactical channel, there's just a tactical?
