Guys, it looks like they followed the same setup that most analog to P25 cutovers have: divide the old talkgroup from the Moto system by 16 and voila: new talkgroup. That should help identify the radio traffic quickly, but before submitting to database, always verify what you are hearing.
Thanks rattlerbb01. This info is quite the timesaver. Math...who knew?

So since I can't hear anything in Webster parish, would it help to add all the frequencies instead of just the control channels? Are there completely tied to caddo or can I ad the bossier tower?

Jerry I just added Shreveport as a site and then all of the old Simulcast frequencies and am getting plenty of traffic.

Same with nopd back when you could hear them for those few short years. Heck Vidalia PD was actually busy for a small town. Used to amaze me.

You’ll probably need to do a new database update in sentinel, it should be up there by now
