• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

    Outdoor container for 3 sdrdongles

    I hope you are considering the heat inside that box under direct sunlight this time of year. If they are RTL-sdr dongles then 3 will make it extra crispy along with a amp. I hope nothing overheats. Home Depot has weather resistant uv stabilised utility boxes made to be mounted outside.

    Tapatalk support has been disabled

    We are in Lindsay's house. Good thing to support his decision. If not, well, won't do anyone any good complaining. I see Lindsay's reasoning is reasonable. Tapatalk never impressed me but I never complained about it. When a man makes up his mind it's the final decision.

    DSDPlus Went On A Adventure

    Adventure continues. Tried OP25's Con + ability. All I did was edit frequencies in the json files. typed in the args for trunking in one terminal, loaded another terminal and typed in the args for audio output. Working good. I'm sharing a little of my stderr output. I haven't figured out a way...

    Future of OKC radio

    I just figured out that OKC Planning stores information on the Journal Record. There was a petition to annex the land at 14200 Hogback Road where OCFD station 4 is. Very recent. Was signed by more than a 3/4ths vote to annex that area to the municipality. They needed that land annexed to the...

    DSDPlus Went On A Adventure

    Someone somewhere else gave me these args. They worked. Had to install Sox to do it but it's worth it. DMR sounds good on Linux. rtl_fm -f 443.225M -p 0 -s 22050 -g 14 - | sox -traw -r22050 -es -L -b16 -c1 -V1 -v 2 - -traw -es -L -b16 -c1 -r48000 - | padsp dsd -fr -i -

    Future of OKC radio

    Ya they better get the ball rolling. The FCC slapped a special condition 1062 on their license. They have 6 months from the original certification date if they cant meet the certification date. They missed the annual certification date. That's to close to cancellation. They are way behind on...

    DSDPlus Went On A Adventure

    Thanks. I found out the right command args to get DSD 1.7 to run which is ' padsp dsd -fr -i /dev/dsp' and had to input a line of code into pulse audio for virtual sink. DSD+ 2.186 FL and DSD 1.7 working. Now the fun part. I can't find the actual information. I want rtl_fm to output audio to...

    DSDPlus Went On A Adventure

    Was a good adventure. Making DSD+ FL 2.186 deocde Ham DMR voice in Linux. A success! Not counting the red text prompting to use FMP24 which isn't going to happen using wine! Other than that DMR voice decoded fine using GQRX. Did have to edit pulse audio for a virtual sink. Operating system is...

    OP25 Muliple Frequency Control Channels same NAC P25 PII TDMA

    Thanks It's taking me time to learn OP25 and getting there. Sounding good! I wonder how OP25 will handle a P25 PII TDMA system with 20 repeater output frequencies. 40 time slots wow! that's what it'll be like when the OKC completely cuts over from EDACS Provoice.

    OP25 Muliple Frequency Control Channels same NAC P25 PII TDMA

    I fired up OP25 and noticed the CC switched and I didn't put it into the TSV. I loaded GQRX to find it and it ended up being a channel not listed as a CC on the RR SID. I read about it a little bit in some old posts and not real clear what OP25 will do if I need to put into the tsv 3 CC's with...

    OP25 in Simulcast situations

    Its in the open P25 voice. the screeching is mid-transmission. doesn't happen all the time. Encryption is more like garbled not screeching. ./rx.py --nocrypt --args "rtl" --gains 'lna:24' -S 960000 -q 0 -d 0 -v 1 -2 -V -U -T ecoecn1.tsv 2> stderr.2

    OP25 in Simulcast situations

    Still waiting on Oklahoma City to cut-over to APCO P25 PII TDMA ti see how simulcast is on my copy of OP25. Another P25 system here has a few active talk groups OP25 deocdes really well near perfect decodes. Sometimes I get a burst of a screeching sound. Don't know why.

    Looking for SmartZone Decoder for Linux

    I am not confused. trunk-recorder needs more dongles the larger the systemis in frequency. DSD+ FL will do it with 1 dongle regardless of the swath of frequency. OP25 doesn't care either the swatch of frequency. Trunk-recorder is meant to record a entire system. Multiple recorders require more...

    Looking for SmartZone Decoder for Linux

    2 dongles isnt enough for OKWIN in trunk-recorder. OKWIN is 10mhz wide. need 12msps or 6 dongles for trunk recorder to see the whole system. BAH! Im not messing with it! Inefficient!
