We have a submission stating that Caldwell County went to full P25 at 14:00 on Tuesday (02/23). Can anyone in the area confirm this?

If they went to P25, then they should have also merged into the Austin/Travis system (site 41?). Can this be confirmed, as well?

Man, I knew I should have turned them on yesterday.

I have tentative list of talkgroups I've gathered over the past few days that I'll wait to post until I get home tonight.

3403- Regional I/O 8

5395-
5396-
5402- Caldwell County Roads
5405- Lockhart PD (called "PD" and Luling is still conventional analog; heard a "Unit 14" and dispatch had a RID of 55628)
5409-
5410- Emergency Services North Testing
5426-
5427-
5428-
5431-
5432-

For the frequency lineup:

769.29375 4hits
770.33125 84hits

Add these to the list of groups seen on this Site:

1122- AFD Metro North
1142- AFD Metro South

3496-

5497-

5411- (heard "SO")
5413-
5419-
5420-
5425-

5462-

5471-
5475-

I'm noticing that a lot of these talkgroups numbers are "beyond" what has been issued for the rest of the TRS, so this should be a fun weekend of identifying. Let the game begin.

Tentatively:

5395- Caldwell County SO

5432- Luling PD (they might still have an analog on their old conv freq broadcast also)

To Eric or Lindsay....

Unrelated to P25, but Caldwell County:

I noticed that we have the private Lockhart prison listed twice, once on the Caldwell Co. page and once on the TDCJ page under "Statewide Private Facilities." Should we delete the county entry, or leave it alone?

Is Caldwell Co, etc. using only the 700 MHz site (42)? Is there still a live control channel on the old Mot 800 MHz system or have all the freqs migrated to Site 41?

Russell,

There is still an active CC on the old 800MHz TRS. I have not heard any traffic over it this weekend (but it is the weekend, but I imagine it will be around for awhile for some city services.

Okay, still tentatively (because I haven't heard any addresses over the air):
5395: Caldwell SO Disp 1
5405: LockhartPD Disp 1
5432: LulingPD Disp 1

I'm only firm about the first one right now:
5395: Caldwell SO Disp 1, 82XXs
5396: 164X unit numbers, law enforcement
5405: LockhartPD Disp 1
5432: 711X, 712X and 713X unit numbers...

Still hearing Luling in conventional. All the old Caldwell County conventional seems to have gone quiet. The old Motorola trunking system has been quiet from what I have heard (definitely no Law Enforcement traffic) though I can't say that I listen to it much during business hours of the work week when the city admin talkgroups might still be active.

Firm:
5395: Caldwell SO Disp 1, 82XXs
5396: Caldwell SO Traffic, 85XXs, 164Xs
5405: LockhartPD Disp 1, 88XXs
5432: LulingPD Disp 1, 71XXs

LulingPD has made the switch though I haven't confirmed any fire talkgroups yet. I've logged some, but need to hold off on submitting those.

Has anyone else noticed that Luling PD has switched to talkgroup 5431? I haven't heard 5432 in a few days...

Also, I've noticed that Caldwell SO Primary (154.8150) is still in use with CT 186.2 AND a CT 107.2, I haven't pinned down who is using the latter though.
