• 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:

    I heard A Greenfield patch last night and an ECI patch a few minutes ago. Here is my current TG list if you want to ID scan. Remember all 2XX TGs will probably be encrypted. System019 Talkgroups 9/21/2019 1 - Radio Service 2 - Radio Service 3 - Radio Service 4 - Radio Service 5 -...

    At $600 they are probably G2s. It is probably frowned on but they are user programable. :rolleyes:

    Erie County P25 System

    They were testing dispatch tones yesterday. Today all EPD cars are going to the garage for a "Radio Test". As Terry mentioned I think all 200 TGs are PD and will be encrypted.

    All stations sound scrambled

    "You could be right on the North Baltimore channel, I may reach out to them directly to see what their current situation is. " That would be a good question to ask in the Ohio State section of this forum; Ohio Radio Discussion Forum

    Quite possible as the county has licenses for it all over the county as both conventional and trunked.

    Noticed the pager portion of the current testing is on MC Fire west, 453.95 analog.

    BCDx36HP: Intermittent Transmissions

    Switch the scanners. Does the problem move with the radio or stay with the location? I am surrounded by 5 towers for the Metro site of this system and get no distortion with any radio or antenna.

    BCDx36HP: Intermittent Transmissions

    I have 2 536s on the same system with no problem and no simulcast distortion. I am using a mast mount Larsen BSA-450K to both, thru a multicoupler. Each has only one favorite list enabled, one for each site, running ID scan and squelch set at 3.

    Those are PW - Public Safety Pool, Conventional, not trunked, and probably more Med frequencies. There have been several new licenses for them recently. Most are for "90.20 - DISPATCH MEDICAL EQUIPMENT AND PERSONNEL " or "90.20 - DISPATCH PUBLIC SAFETY EQUIPMENT & PERSONNEL " .

    When they were doing all the location testing I don't remember hearing MPD. MPS and FDs but not PD. They may just stay with what they have.

    202 also. This plus other data leads me to think the 1xx TGs will be FD & EMS and 2xx PD.

    Any updates on Paul (Upman)?

    Tracking blocking will hide it. To the left of the green lock in the address bar at the top of the screen is a shield. Click that and "Turn off blocking for this site". That should allow you to see it.

    Erie County P25 System

    I really wouldn't be to concerned with talkgroups at this point. I just run ID search. When it goes live we should be able to ID the unencrypted TGs within a day or so. Unless you actually watch someone transmitting on an encrypted TG there is no way to verify it in a manner that can be...

    Programming UHF frequencies for my G5

    You can. Put the 7 frequencies in 7 knob positions and the 8th knob position would be a scan list of the other 7. If you do not need to easily monitor the 7 individual frequencies put them someplace other than zone 1 and use zone 1 for the trunked systems and scan list knob positions.
