    Unknown Trunk System

    Hi all, I have come across this system which over the years appears to have replaced some MPT1327 systems in the UK and Ireland. MPT1327 control channels would go silent, then be replaced by this. I have never found out what it is. It is active in the 165-170 MHz region in the UK, and...

    APX Trunking Can't RX or TX audio

    I've previously been monitoring a P25 trunked network (NSW Government Radio Network Trunking System, NSW Statewide and ACT, Multi-State - Scanner Frequencies) in my state using the non-affiliate scan method. I.e. I created the actual trunked channels and placed them in a scan list linked to a...

    Butler County Police appear to have switched radios

    I had the Butler County Police North and South bands on my scanner and they have been dead silent since either Thanksgiving or the day before. I had noticed quite a few "radio service radio checks" in the past several weeks leading up to this. I am still picking up Fire and EMS on their old...

    Zip Code Search Returns All Sites

    It seems that when I do a zip code search (29420, for example), I get the local trunking (P800) talk-groups I'd expect with my distance setting, but all the sites statewide. I would have expected to only get the local sites, too. Since there are over 300 site freqs in the state on this system, I...

    About PG&E's MPT1327 system....

    I am curious as to any possible rationales for PG&E choosing to deploy MPT1327 as their radio system instead of a Type II, LTR, or any other comparable analog trunking system. From what I understand, its one of the only MPT systems that exist in the U.S. and its a type that's mostly used outside...

    Need advice from the group...

    I'm new to the scanning world. I'm a HAM and am looking into purchasing a digital trunking scanner. However I'm reading on this forum that there is increasingly less to listen to due to the shift to encrypted communication. Is it still worth it?

    Pro-528: Trunk programming the PRO-528

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me. I'm trying to program a Motorola type II smartnet into my Radio Shack PRO 528 and I'm at a loss. The user manual isn't really clear on it and I have been trying for months and googling and I'm getting nowhere. PLEASE HELP...

    Switching from Conventional to Trunking

    Good afternoon. I'm newer to the scanner ownership and have a few questions. I've been listening to Broadcastify using multiple phone apps for about 3 or 4 years and decided it was time to bite the bullet and invest into a scanner. Before I actually understood anything about my state, I had put...

    Long Isand DMR Cap System on 460.225

    I noticed earlier today that my scanner was locked on 460.225 with a dead carrier. I was too lazy (sick today) to press the avoid key to allow my scanner to move on. To my surprise, I started hearing DMR data traffic on this frequency. Color code 1 and the display said CAP. I fired up DSD+...

    Anyone who can give me pointers....

    I recently dusted off my RS PRO-95 after moving to Richmond, VA and am trying to set it up for the localities here. I've reset the unit, and programmed in the frequencies here but after thirty minutes there was no traffic (I was at the VRS and we definitely had traffic over the radios). So I...

    NAS Assistance on AFRN

    Alrighty, allow me to explain this mess. I have an XTS5k model II capable of 9600 baud trunking. I program it step by step for NAS like I've done on plenty of other systems and to no avail it doesn't work. The display shows the talkgroup but no audio comes through, the speaker isn't an issue as...

    Trunking - Phase I & II - questions :)

    Hi! I was raised in a home where my Dad always had police scanners, even with crystals etc. I'm interested in getting a trunking scanner for the house. I'm not too familiar with them, nor the Phase type etc. I can tell you what I'm looking for - I live in Ohio, near Cleveland in suburb. Is it...

    Trunking on Motorola APX7000XE StarCOM21 question.

    So I have a general question that may apply to any trunking system similar but I am specifically talking about STARCOM21 in this case. So if you will refer to https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?sid=2324 this link to see how the system is set up. On with the point. I have already set up my...

    XTS5000 Model 3 Zone Channel Assignment Personality Type Conv ONLY

    For some reason I get the eye glasses when I try and change the Personality Type to Trk. I have an Astro25 system key and have added a trunking personality with 17 Astro 25 talk groups to the codeplug. Anyone know what function will remove the eye glasses and allow the change from Conv to...

    PRO 668 Question

    Hi All - Is it possible to set the Trunking site threshold on the scanner? I know how to do it on the programming software on the computer. Thanks!

    DSD+ Error??

    Does anyone know what this means? I haven't seen it before in all the years I've been using DSD+ and UniTrunker... For some reason in the middle of decoding the tower next to mine showed in red and started displaying "ISOLATED" several times then started displaying "ISOLATED, FAILED". Does...

    Need some advice on how to pick out some trunking scanners?

    Good day - I have two scanners now, which are standard channels. I'd like to get a trunking scanner, but don't know where to begin. I'm not out for the biggest and best, just one where I can hear local police such as the Cleveland, Ohio police, Olmsted Falls Police, etc. Could someone please...

    Issues with two trunk channels broadcasting

    I have a Uniden bcd536hp scanner and have it programmed to transmit the local police and ems but there are two channels that are not being picked up by the scanner, one is 5 miles away, the other maybe 10 to 12 miles away. I reprogrammed the scanner thinking I had too many frequencies for the...

    Future of NXDN

    Icom seems to have stagnated in further IDAS development. Kenwood is now offering DMR. Is NXDN destined to go the way of the Dodo in the USA? I'd like to hear opinions regarding continued investment in expanding a trunked NXDN system is worthwhile or change direction to a build a trunked DMR...

    Buncombe County P25 - Fire Tac

    Hi all, I am a big scanner listener, especially on fire frequencies. I live in Buncombe County, NC. Recently, I heard fire dispatches that told units to go to Fire Tac 3 and Fire Tac 4. However, the RR page for the Buncombe County P25 trunk system only covers Fire Tac 1 and Fire Tac 2, not 3...
