We're slowly getting there on the list of sites, adding the new designators - I'm up to 73 on my spreadsheet now. The maintenance emails the last couple of days have all been sites I didn't have.

Got another AWIN alert this morning with site G10 HOPE - didn't have a site number as usual

Not in the RR DB - possible new tower??

851.8250
852.1000
852.6000

WQDC588 - modified in 8/2019 to add the following frequencies @ Hope:

There is not a tower in Hope. That is HQ and the e-mail has "G01 HOPE", not G10. There was discussion to put a trunking site there but they never did. Right now it is the starlet receiver for Troop G.

I may have post this earlier to the wrong tread this may be better tread.
I have come across 3 new talkgroups. All 3 on the Lake City tower.
20210 and 20214 sound fire/ems maybe. Crittenden County ?
16426 sound law. Jonesboro?

So does anyone know if there are some sites missing from the AWIN db page or if some of the sites are just going by different names now than what the db shows? Example: Today there was an alert that site "A11 - NE Cabot" would be down for maintenance. Is that a site that is listed by an old name or a site that we don't have info for at this time? Anyone know?

Look at the db. See anything named Cabot? When we set up the DB we used the system data right from UT, Pro96com etc. As well as fcc information. We also had a map that is now so not valid as zones changed 2 times with site shifts to other zones, and now a whole bunch of new sites etc. We did not get a list of how they name sites after the changes. So if you see a site in troop A named Cabot thats most likely it.

Wasn't sure if NE Cabot was a new site. Guess not.

Also, just saw a notice for all console users to not reboot today as the domain controllers would be down for maintenance.

I do pick up Iron Mountain strongly at my home in central Independence County but I also know it serves Stone County for Troop I so maybe because there is already an Independence County site called Batesville?

I was just going by county / location of tower.

I understand some towers cover neighboring troops. I've heard White Co. SO & ASP Troop B on the Cabot - Troop A, DeValls Bluff & Fair Oaks - Troop D towers before.

The most probable explanation is they needed X amount of towers per Troop to either make Captains happy or for budgeting/maintenance costs.

Yes well if someone drags a talkgroup then you can theoretically hear any talkgroup off any site unless it’s set to not permit it to affiliate.

They have never taken the time to set that up, but I brought it up more than once several years ago. You can drag Texarkana PD to Fayetteville or West Memphis. You shouldn't be able to do that. Home tower + two towers over should be fine. If you're in a chase or fire that far away, you should be under someone else's command.

Yeah. Our local county uses their TG to talk back to dispatch or supervisor when they transport out of county or something. I’m not saying it should be happening but it does.

They’ve put out notices about not doing it but...
