Any Keen to swap TG's for the large Orion Digital Network?
I'm currently trying to figure out how to scan trunking in chch myself. I downloaded everything off radio reference but havent heard a thing all day.
Otherwise fleetlink and actionnet teamtalk is not able to be scanned unless you have PC software to use it properly or you load the traffic channels in on a conventional group.

I have a uniden UBCD325P2 and trying to scan the Orion Network DMR, Kordia KorKor Tetra and TL Parker Apco p25 but have not heard a sound. Not sure what transmits on these networks and not sure if they're even capable of being listed to by a scanner as from what I understand Uniden need DMR and I think Tetra unlocked and installed by paid software through uniden.

I'm trying to get my head around the TG's around Palmerston north without having any info that I can find. I've logged quite a few frequencies but with knowing all the frequencies in one group it's hard to put the data into the scanners. All of my frequencies are around 416MHz and mostly on 6.26kHz channels which supposedly are digital in the US but are all analogue voice here.
My other entries are in a post titled "Setting up trunking with no info!" in the "General Scanning Discussions" forum right at the top!
Sounds like the old MPT1327 network around that frequency.
You'll have to get the traffic channels and load them into your scanner as conventional to use them. I found them all myself by searching the frequency range which is between 406.000 and 420.000. Just lock out and ignore the channels that sound like dial up internet as they are the control channels. They're only needed if you're using PC software to listen to MPT1327 properly. Otherwise no scanner made can debunk it.

Best way to map out MPT1327 is with an SDR and unitrunker.

Also the information on RR for the Chch Orion network is heavily outdated.

You can listen to one side of a trunking system but the hard part is actually finding the frequencies. I searched/scanned the band from 410 to 420MHz for a couple of hours in the mid-morning and noted all the frequencies that the radios stopped on (2x UBCT8s). I tried to enter the frequencies into the Trunktrack system but it couldn't tie the system together. Once the master station transmits it keeps the carrier on so neither radio will scan to find the input. I tried locking out the master on the other radio so that it scanned but of course that just locked on another master. I got some advice that the repeater offset was 5MHz but that didn't seem to find the input - not knowing what system they are using doesn't help so after all that playing around I thought that a nice cold or two one was in order!

I'm very pleased with my UBC126AT - but to solve a lots of early problems it pays to RTFM!

the 325 is not tetra capable , and never will be ,

will do dmr and nxdn after paid upgrade to come soon for Au and nz ,

after a little practice, programming of digital systems is no problem,

How soon? The person who is organising the upgrades cannot give me a ballpark figure....so I went ahead and bought a USDS100....
