A little while ago this evening, I picked up police activity on talk group 6013. I guess its some kind of surveillance with the assistance of Gwinnett PD.

I just heard last night for the first time. I have set aside about 275 entries on my GRE-500 for talk groups with DeKalb County. I started from 6001 to 6274, granted most of them are not assigned or Identified yet. I set it aside for any future catches. I got it by chance.

You heard a TG which is also sometimes patched to a TG on the Gwinnett system and is used for SIS surveillance. I imagine it was the violent crime task force which does federal gun trafficking cases.

And this has what do to with the original post???? Why not make a separate post here in the GA forum with that inquiry? Oh, by the way, that is up to whom ever is providing the feed.

Quick edit: what to do. Not what do to.

Time for me to run Pro96com to find out:) It would seem that might be, or, GCPD has De Kalb's TG programmed into their radios.

Yes the Dekalb TG would be unencrypted. Officers on a federal task force, such as the violent crime task force which is staffed by ATF agents, Dekalb, Altanta, Gwinnett etc detectives (all sworn as federal agents) all have each others radio freq's programmed. There are a ton of feds on all sorts of task forces which have GCPD TG's programmed in.
In the world of multijurisdictional task forces they have tremendous communications capability becuase there are so many local agencies represented on such a task force.
Nearly all the metro 911 centers have the ability to patch talk groups with neighboring counties. I once heard Fulton Co Fire call for Gwinnett Hazmat to go to a call in North Fulton. Gwinnett 911 patched Fire Tac 8 to a Fulton Fire Tac so everyone could instantly talk to each other.
GEMA has a van that can link several types of comms together. You could have 5 officers using VHF, 5 using UHF, 5 on an 800 p-25 system, and this comms can can link them all together on a repeater network so they can all talk to eachother as if they were all on one system. Ive seen this used and it works great.
