When listening to the CSP, what does the expression, "Contact XXX 3 way", mean?
Actually, no.When programming csp p25 one freq trunk do you use Dec or hex or just let it search on 996xt
you are right, csp was on low band I have a frequency directory from scanner master from 2005 and they have the old low band system listed as In example troop l and would share 42.520. and basically 2 troops would share a particular 42. freqYou have no idea what your talking about "doc." CSP was conventional low band simplex. Try again.
oh yeah It is much easier now each troop has its own talkgroup so you know who it talking--as far as the skip correct me if im wrong but I believe the California highway patrol was heard on a sip and they are still on that band.That's right Rick. I started scanning years before the digital TRS went into place. It's much easier to monitor their comms now but I miss the skip that would come in. If I have some spare time I search the low band range and very seldom hear much. Most agencies have moved to high bands with more local coverage.
True Manny,CHP is still on 42.XXX megahertz. I had a few good friends on the CSP. I remember those little gray colored GE brand low band radios, and the Larsen brand nearly 6 foot antenna in the trunk. That was the sure sign that the car belonged to the CSP when you saw them on the highway off duty. LOL......
