I know that they switch radios. I'm sure dispatch doesn't though so you could just specify Dispatch or Unit on the scanner.I no longer travel regularly to CT as I once did. However, in the area I now live, the UID is not as useful as it might be because the "cars" are not assigned a single user and the on-the-air call sign is the badge # or ID of the driver on a particular shift. Therefore the UID while unique to the radio is not unigue to the officer's radio ID in most cases. Where I live we have only a few Agencies where the car is permanently assigned to an officer who 'parks' the mobile in his driveway when he if off duty.
From what I have looked at for what troops I get the 6xxxx id's seem to be the dispatchers.
Here are the 6xxxx id's I have in id tracker.
You were right about the 6xxxx UID's the cars are going to be more complicated as they can be any number.
I don't know about the 4xxxx and the 5xxxx as I am listening and also get 1xxxx, 4xxxx, 3xxxx, and 5xxxx. The 6xxxx does apply though.Most Fleet/Network managers would issue a standard #
4xxxx for Portables
5xxxx for Cruisers
6xxxx for Base Stations/Consoles
this might help [again based on another states formats]
Definitely agree with you on the knowing when a dispatcher is talking. Just wanted to expand on the system. I guess it really doesn't matter...I skipped down a bit....but....
Yes, there is no match between car radios and portables for the troopers. Each console has a different ID for each talkgroup they transmit on, so you can't always rely on that.
Izzy...the actual radio id is NOT what you saw on the screen. They are aliased by the console. For example 32166 would be in the radio, but the database see's 32166 and translates that to 345P that you saw on the screen. ID's not assigned or updated would just show the raw ID (ie 32166) on the display.
For CT, other than the consoles, 90% of the ID's are a crap shoot. Not worth trying to match up the IDs to people other than the consoles...and if you can't tell its the troop talking there are bigger issues at hand...
I am going to print this list out as a reference. I know some of it may not be right but will still use it to a degree. How did you come up with a big list like this? Even if you did monitor, that is a lot of UID's to get and find what they go with.I did a little monitoring with unitrunker when they were doing the mass rebanding a while back. Here's a general summary of the radio ID's. There are a lot of breaks where there are either unused ID's or ID's that I can't get because they are used on sites I can't monitor from here:
