@phipac: This is what I see in the Now Playing Details tab in SDRTrunk 0.5.0-alpha6 under java 1.8.0_281 on Win10 sees when I added just the control channel (770.44375) and hit the Play button (i.e. normal offsets), both for the site's channels and in the bandplan. Try removing and re-adding the playlist. Looks like the bandplan got corrupted.
You are correct - thank you.

0x05 and 0x09 are Motorola opcodes (MFID = 0x90).

Possibly Big Rock, Mt. Tam or Sonoma Mountain? I'm not able to pick up anything that far South with ease.
Where's Big Rock? It could be Sonoma Mountain or maybe Mt Tam. It's a big stronger than I'd expect for either of those (stronger than Mt Vaca, which is closer), but there aren't any obvious alternatives on the maps I've seen....

Big Rock is the repeater site at the top of Lucas Valley Road. Big Rock Ridge is the 'technical' location name. Semi-direct line of sight to Diablo so from Brentwood it might make sense...

OK, found it. I'm on the east side of Diablo, so anything in that area is liable to be shadowed, but maybe if it's up high enough....

The CRIS plans that I've seen show a Mt Tam site.

My money would be on Sonoma Mountain first for this one, though...

Possible as Big Rock is only 1887' but hosts both Marin County, Sonoma and CHP/State stuff for local use between Terra Linda and the SonoMarin County line. Unless someone beats me to it, I'll be back into SoCo next Thursday so I can check it out on SDR as I pass through as I have to travel right "under" the shadow of Sonoma Mountain...

The older CRIS maps for the bay area had Cobb Mountain, St. Helena, English Hill, Sonoma Mountain, Mt. Vaca, Mt. Tamalpais, Diablo, Sunol Ridge and Loma Prieta on them.

The new map shows Seigler, St. Helena, Mt. Vaca, Diablo and Loma Prieta and mentioned 4 additional sites planned for the area.


Is it possible that site 18 could be Diablo? That would line up with the numbering scheme they seem to be following, lower numbers to the north and higher numbers to the south.

I haven't seen Seigler online yet, but at the same time, it would SUPER "loud" for me, pegging my S-meter at 80 over S9. Mount Saint Helena is confirmed though as Site 13.

I'll have to see what I hear when I head back into SoCo next week.

My guess is Seigler will be site 12, it may or may not be online yet.

I also "confirmed" 13 as St. Helena while I was in the area last month so you are definitely on the money with that.

To make it easier for people to find new sites I created a HPE file of all the California state 700 MHz frequencies that you can import into the Sentinel software and load into any scanner that can be programmed with that software. This will allow you to scan the frequencies along with any other favorites list you already have and if any of the frequencies become active the scanner should stop on the frequency.

I suspect they have sites online in the I-80 East and Central Coast regions that have not been discovered yet as well as some in the North Coast region.

We also have reports of a site 21 heard in Sacramento County (I-80 East?), site 36 heard in Monterey County (Central Coast?) and site 50 heard in Butte County (North Coast?) that have not been pinned down yet.
