I still can not open your file. Take a look at the listing here http://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?sid=2508

Look for the sectons Phoenix Police A Deck - Patrol Talkgroups, Phoenix Police B Deck - Patrol Talkgroups, Phoenix Police C Deck - Tactical Talkgroups & Phoenix Police H Deck - Event Coordination Talkgroups.

Those will give you the bulk of the talkgroups for Phoenix PD.

Mesa uses their part of the system more fully than Phoenix. I doubt you are in an area where you can receive Mesa's Simulcast D. Gilbert and Mesa are mostly on there with a little on Thompson Peak. (Thompson Peak has separate systems on it, County and Mesa, not to mention CAP so be careful not to get confused as to what you're monitoring.) If you manually tune through the Simulcast D control channels, do you hear the same type of audio as you hear on whatever active control channel Simulcast A is using? If your scanner can't hear and decode Simulcast D's control channel, the voice audio isn't going to happen. Only a very few Mesa talkgroups operate in Phoenix, just as only a few Phoenix talkgroups operate in Mesa.

Oh I thought the whole system simulcasted? and that I would get all the TGs on Sim A! That explains it. Thanks
