    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.

Have you been to Cruces last month and found out anything about WSMR trunking?
Thanks

Nope... I haven't had the time to sit down there to figure it out =(

Good day. I just got back from 6 weeks in the Fort Bliss/WSMR area (mostly at the Dona Ana base camp). I monitored the 6C30 system with a pro 96. I forgot the different control ch freqs but using a base freq of 406.1125, offset 380 and 12.5 KHz spacing I copied the system very well. I'm not sure that's what you were talking about but there's the info in case anybody needs to know.

Thanks, I'll give it a try... but not in the next few days. BTW, are they still using a mix of analog and P25 voice?

ABQSCAN: Cruces - Feb - WSMR?

I heard a 60/40 mix of analog/digital. Logged about 50 TGs.

Would be nice if you could post/revise/update the Dona Ana frequencies database, along with the talkgroups. Thanks

Here are the TGs I logged. I only text tagged the ones I really knew for sure what they were. I had the advantage of being issued an XTS 5000 for the duration of my time there. I'm a Canadian Army Comms Technician and the units I've listed are from Petawawa Ontario.

I wish I'd kept better notes. 409.1125 MHz was the CC in DA (I think). It was probably different while I was on Fort Bliss proper working at the railhead. I'm pretty much a CC only kind of guy (esp with the Pro 96). I know you can get burned sometimes with this (like the El Paso 3802 sys when they rotate CCs) . Of minor note when I was there, it was around 25 Feb when the 6C30 reverted to site trunking for about 30 hrs due to what I learned later was a fiber optics gettting cut.

You know what? Today, I used the two control frequencies ABQSCAN posted a while back for the 6C30 system (409.3625 and 408.5875) and also the base frequency of 406.1125 that you gave in your first post in this thread. I put these numbers in my BCD396T (in control channel only mode) and got both analog and digital voice conversations. Thank you, Rob and Erik. I will use the old set of talkgroups I used in my analog voice PRO97. They are:

Master Control 10128
Fire/EMS 12336
MP Central 12416
WS Range Rider 14768
WS Rough Rider 12768
Range Safety 12992
Range Control1 12688
Range Control2 12288
Range Control 3 12784
Range User1 13328
Range User2 10160
Range User3 13344
Range User4 12864
Range User5 12784
Range User6 09296
Range User7 14784
Range User 8 12768
Range User 9 13776
PM Info 28/29 08656

The above TGs are for the analog transmissions I heard before (before WSMR changed base frequencies and control frequencies) in the PRO97.
The Range Users are projects and post customers like you folks Rob.
I can't see how you got the base frequency correctly from only the control channel and perhaps a few voice channels. How did you ever figure that one out? Great job.

After a base freq of 406 MHz didn't work, I just worked up from there in 12.5 KHz steps until the PRO 96 tracked the system properly. It was trial and error.

I am trying to get this to work from Alamogordo using 396T. I don't really understand the relationship between band plan and frequencies entered, I've tried several combos with no luck.

I hear two equally strong control channels, 407.075 and 408.0875. I put my radio in old fashioned CONVENTIONAL search mode, and quickly discovered a bunch of active freqs, which I assume go with these control channels (406. 1125, . 15, .3625, .5625, .7625, .775, .9625, 407.1625, .5625 (and I quit searching after these, I imagine there are more).

It did not seem to me that any of this matched the database data for sites. I put the cc's and the active freqs in the freguency bank, and put some of the base freq tries (406.0 406.1125) in the band plan set up, but I never got anything. I need to buy a vowel, I think I am just poking in the dark.

Hi,
I have a 396T also. Unlike the Radio Shack pro 95 and 97 (and I assume the 96), you have to specify CC only (control channel only) trunking with the Uniden.

Try that if you have not already...

I cant hear the two control channels from Las Cruces, but that does not mean that they are not there.

Hope that helps.
Peter
