• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I get Troops H,I,G,A,L on old system and CSERN. I also get Chester Ambulance. I am using a 996P2 with a mobile antenna outside the house. I listen to a lot of other stuff as well I know I can hear Hartford from where I am so what I can do is sometime this weekend turn off everything else but CSERN and see exactly what I can hear. Really weird is I heard Troop E for the first time in a long time the other day
Chester Ambulance? Do tell !?!

I had been told that there MIGHT BE a crosspatch for Middlesex County’s 46.18. That might be true if you heard Chester Ambulance.

There is a lot of potential for this new system.

I Hope It Works.
So it seems like I am not the only one experiencing poor reception on CSERN. hopefully it means they'll improve it when it switches over fully ... ?

To clarify, I live in southwest connecticut and I'm picking up Troop E Simulcast.... Getting Stamford Fire dept on TG 19, and the TG for Troop C was Stamford Operations (the city ambassadors). There was encrypted traffic on TG 64 so I don't know what it was - I'd guess local police. I think they're doing testing before the cutover on 6/11 (as someone posted above). It seems like the TG's are just out of date on RR. Once there's reliable traffic I'll run discovery on the system --- the above just doesn't seem right at all (because I'm ~80 miles away from Troop E ....)
I wonder if they are using the Troop E frequencies on the Stamford site as I have never heard anything from Stamford monitoring the Troop G site frequencies. I’ll have to try to hear the E frequencies tomorrow when I’m in Stamford.

Is there a Troop H site for CSERN? Is it the Avon site? And does the Avon site have two locations (One at BDL and Talcott) like the Troop H 800 site?

The site listed in the database as "Avon" is actually the new P25 Troop H Simulcast. It transmitts from Talcott Mtn (Avon), Windsor Locks (Bradley Airport), Rocky Hill, and Bristol.

Then in the DB, shouldn't it be named "Troop H" instead of "Avon". Maybe somebody can change it?

This weekend while reviewing my pro06com logs, I see the Middlesex County simulcast cell is reporting Site 37 as part of adjacent site, the control channel is 859.9375 which is also used by Litchfield County. Something to keep an eye on.

So Connecticut transit is on phase 1 that means they’re going to phase 2
Everyone currently on the OLD 4.1 System will be going over the the 7.X P25 system, The P25 system is currently running Phase1 & Phase2 and always will, All of the uses will move to Phase 2 eventualy but some like UASI and some of the first users of the P25 system will take a little time to get there. They also have to combine the 800 channels with the 700 channels at sites so channels at sites will be changing, all invisible to the field untis as the radios do what the control channel tells them to, so sites on the P25 system will eventualy have a mix of 700 & 800 channels

I live in Enfield near exit 49 and last I tired to listen to the 700p25 system could only get one or two bars at best with a exterior antenna from the Avon/troop H site and no signal at all from the Tolland County site. Meanwhile, the 800 Moto system worked just fine with 2-3 bars inside on the OEM antenna on my 436HP.

I'm still confused. What exactly is being switched over tomorrow? The 800mhz Motorolla SmartZone II will still be active, no? (As Troop B, L, and others have yet to get P25 CSERN sites and Talkgroups).
