Looks like the Marshall County AIRS site is online. I am receiving a control channel from Cullman on 769.55625 reporting call sign WRKX345 with alternate control channel of 770.10625, site 3.1 NAC 460. Based on the way the frequencies are licensed, I'm guessing it's simulcast. No voice traffic yet. I'll get it submitted for inclusion in the database.

That should be NAC 461.

While in Chilton County recently, I picked up a new talkgroup, 44057, while monitoring the Chilton County towers. It had traffic on there such as "scene clear" and "i'll be out at the annex." I'm not sure what it was.

Heard testing yesterday on TGID 33625. From location (s) given, they were in the central and southern part of county checking for dead spots. Do not know what agency but was not radio maintenance crew.

I have been able to confirm the five frequencies for the Marshall County Simulcast site, which is now in the database:

1-1208 769.55625 CC
1-1296 770.10625 SCC
1-1364 770.53125
1-1588 771.93125
1-1632 772.20625
1-1716 772.73125


The control channel is not yet broadcasting a neighbors list. All the traffic I've logged over the last week or so has been Phase 1. I've seen encrypted traffic on talkgroup 455 (Radio and Range Testing) and unencrypted calls on talkgroups 33625, 33626 and 33631.

I have observed the control channel sending traffic to one additional frequency that I didn't list: 772.20625. Initially I thought it was an anomaly; that frequency does not appear on WRKX345 with the others and the only license I have found for that frequency in Alabama is WQQA287, which belongs to the city of Oxford. However, DSD+ and Unitrunker agree that this activity continues to appear regularly on the conteol channel, although I have yet to actually log any followed traffic on 772.20625.

The decoding has been good from Cullman so I'll continue to monitor for mew developmemts.

I believe state troopers do a protection unit for the governor, can anyone point me to if they will be on a trunked system? If so which one? I feel like I have seen the units radio info before but cannot find it now, thank you for any help

you cant heat them. they are using a push to talk service. prob still tech southern linc. may have went to first net. or they could be using a cell . the capitol police may use the mongtomery system. they provide the security at the massion in montgomery. the gov was doing a press confrence and she was getting heckled . the trooper beside her pulled out what looked like a cell phone. you could hear him talking . how ever there were no key up beeps or chirps. when the gov travels a lot of agencies are involved . so i guess tech any agency or county she is in has a hand involved. plus its almost a sure bet it will be encrypted .

Capitol Police was taken over by the Troopers in 2000/2001, before ALEA came to pass in 2015. There aren't any of the original Capitol Police Officers left. (They had their own job classification, and Police Chief.) Most retired when the Troopers took them over in 2000/2001. Their dispatchers became "PCOs" and a couple of them are still around dispatching at the Montgomery Headquarters Post.

The Capitol complex, and the state buildings, are now the responsibility of the Troopers. The ones on patrol and the ones at the Governors Mansion are uniformed Troopers. There is one posted in the hallway near the Governors office.

She has a personal security detail that normally wears civilian clothes.

All of them use "PS" call signs. They do have a couple of frequencies listed for them, but you can hear them on 154.920 in Montgomery.

If RadioJon is around he should be able to confirm this information. It was correct when I moved out of Montgomery and into Auburn.

that is right about the personal security cause when the incident happened in my previous post (727). He was in a suit. also from what i seen none of them had the classic undercover ear piece in . just what looked like a cell phone .

Thank you so much, I appreciate it and hopefully I’ll catch something
