Default FreeScan, P25 Phase I w/o TG

I went on Radio Reference to find the frequencies for the Federal Protective Service. It says they have a P25 Phase I setup. But there are no talkgroups?

I'd suspect that unless it is a brand new system, the talkgroups are encrypted making it hard to identify usage... Is there a Wiki page associated with the system where folks are posting unknown TG finds?

Where are you seeing the system listed? Which specific system?

Looking at the Federal page for your state, the agency shows a couple of P25 conventional frequencies. If you know that, in your specific area, they are on a trunked system, then you'd need to identify the system.

In my area, they are also P25 conventional, not encrypted at this time.

Conventional P25 can use talkgroups but the scanner does not need them to decode the channel. Just program the frequency and NAC and you should be okay.

Programming as conventional makes it impossible to track talkgroups. Porgram as One Frequency Trunked with ID Search set, rather than ID Scan.

I double-checked. Not what you linked. But at this page; https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?ctid=315

That is the DC office of the FPS. Just scroll down the page to find it.

I think what threw me for a loop. At the top of the page I linked. It says the Capitol Police are on a P25 Phase I. The Federal Protective Service are on a conventional system like you said.

TIA
