I am in Elpaso County, I am receiving a talk group 4902, 4903 and 4914. I can not find a listing of who they are. If anyone knows please let me know.
What a hobby!

Thanks Much.

TG 4902 sounds like it is used by Colorado Springs School District 11's maintenance or engineering departments. Today they responded to an issue about an open hatch on top of a building at Rampart High School. I will continue monitoring TG's 4903 & 4914 to learn who their users are.

Mick, Thank you. For some reason I do not receive any audio on these transmissions. I live out in Falcon, I do have a Diamond Discone antenna outside up about 30 feet feed with RG8U. I get every thing but that. I must not have it programed properly. I will have to look at that.

Thank you!
Al

TG 4903 sounds like it is used by Colorado Springs School District 11's Security Officers, or dispatch, and so far I hear them doing radio checks with dispatch being called "School Safe." This could be a two-way radio connection TG, allowing emergency services personnel and school officials to talk in real-time during any incident. I will continue monitoring and let you know what else is heard.

Hi All!

I might be missing something, but "Monument" in El Paso county is missing from the data base. Am I wrong, are these old eyes just not seeing it? The frequencies that I have on a old listing are 851.125, 851.6375a, 852.800a, 853.4125c, 853.775a. If I am wrong, please set me straight. I look for it under El Paso county in the list of county's. I have been wrong before.

it might be time for new coax.
if it is older than 5 years it should be changed, and if it is outside, definatly.
you also might want to change to a different one and look for less loss on that band.
even RG6 would do better.

Hi All!

Well here I go again. 4604 appears to be Colorado Springs Police, "ENC". Some of the units that I monitored last night were from Falcon Div., but that does not mean much. 4604 is not listed in the data base, or at least I could not find it. I will keep monitoring it and anyone who wants to help is more that welcome. It appears that El Paso county and Colorado springs may have a few new or not previously listed talk groups.

The coax is fine no problem there. I get full bars on the BCD536HP. I am out in Falcon in the county and I get all of the sites in the city even Pueblo and some stuff from Denver. So reception wise I am OK.

Thanks much!

Hi All!

ShyFlyer , There is a Monument in El Paso county and the frequencies that are listed are for the Monument in El Paso county. I receive local transmissions from that tower. In older data bases that Monument was listed as the El Paso County Monument Site. There may be a typo? And again I could be wrong, it has happened in the past. But it does need a look see. We need to keep it as accurate as we possible can. I think all would agree. It has been very good in the past, people have been fastidiously editing it and keeping it that way.
Not trying to be a picky or a pest just trying to help.
