The cold weather is here and you know what that means: time for the annual NC State Fair! Most of the radio traffic for the Fair is conducted on the Wake County/State of NC/VIPER 800Mhz system. If you have a scanner capable of Control Channel only scanning you should only need to enter the two control channel frequencies of 868.7875Mhz (Primary) and 868.5625Mhz (Secondary).
The following talkgroups have been noted with activity so far this year:
  • 784 (EVENTS ADAM 1) NCSHP Command Post (CP) (Analog)
  • 816 (EVENTS ADAM 2) NCSHP alternate (Analog)
  • 848 (EVENTS ADAM 3) Patched into Raleigh PD UHF Tac 8 453.1375Mhz Simplex. (Analog)
  • 1264 (EVENTS DELTA 4) Used for Food Bank Can Drive (Analog)
  • 592 (SHPTRPCMAID) SHP Troop C Mutual Aid (Analog)
  • 2096 (SHP TROOP C DISTRICT 3) (Analog)
  • 4784 (NCFAIRPSMAIN) NC Fairgrounds Public Safety Main (Analog)
  • 4816 (NCFAIRPSADMIN) NC Fairgrounds Public Safety Admin (Analog)
  • 4848 (NCFAIRMAINT) NC Fairgrounds Maintenance (Analog)
  • 11024 (NCFAIRFOODTG1) NC Fairgrounds Food Talkgroup 1 (Analog)
  • 33600 (PS EVENT 1D) Public Safety Event 1 (Wake County EMS) (Digital)
  • 33616 (PS EVENT 2D) Public Safety Event 2 (Western Wake Fire Rescue) ("State Fair Fire") (Digital)
  • 33632 (PS EVENT 3D) Public Safety Event 3 (Digital)
  • 33648 (PS EVENT 4D) Public Safety Event 4 (Wake Sheriff Command) (Digital)
  • 26800 (PS EVENT 5A) Public Safety Event 5 (Law Enforcement Talkaround) (Analog)
  • 26832 (PS EVENT 6A) Public Safety Event 6 (Tactical TG for Large Incidents) (Analog)

Raleigh PD is also using the following:
Raleigh 10 (460.200Mhz Repeater) inside fairgrounds, Raleigh 13 (460.150Mhz Simplex) for gates (Primary)
Raleigh 8 (460.225Mhz Repeater) patched to PS Event 5 (Talkaround).

Also keep the FRS/GMRS/MURS frequencies handy as State Fair goers use those....
I will keep this thread sticked until the Fair Ends and will update it as the Fair goes on..
Happy Fair Monitoring!

Been living in Charlotte for 4 years and have never been to the State Fair here in NC. I would assume that it is near Raleigh? How long is the fair running through?
Lived in Dallas for 7 years, used to really enjoy going to the Texas State Fair.

Thanks, Marshall! I volunteer for the Red Cross out at the fair & take my PRO 2096 along and wondered what the active talkgroups were. Great post!

Hey bud!
The NC State Fairgrounds are located in West Raleigh right beside the RBC Center...if you are coming from Charlotte take I40 Eastbound towards Raleigh and exit off at Exit 289 (Wade Ave)...from there you can't miss it!
And the Fair runs from the 13th-22nd...here is the official website:
http://www.ncstatefair.org/2006/
Edit: here is the URL to the directions page:

Hope this helps!

Just a quick clarification:
Don't confuse comms at the Fairgrounds with comms at the NC State Football Game...comms for the NC State Football Game can be found in this thread:
http://www.radioreference.com/forums/showthread.php?t=47865
EDIT: One Change:
"MutAid 3W" (mutual aid 3 wake) Talkgroup 28080 patched into Raleigh PD Channel 7 (460.025Mhz) for Police around the Football Game
Comms for the Fairgrounds are listed in the 1st post in this thread.
Happy Monitoring!
