Seems there is a new TG on EBRCS. TGID 9006 was being tested today 11/15. I overheard Contra costa regional medical center talking to local hospitals such as Concord, Martinez, Richmond, ect. All were copied loud and clear.
Happened to catch this test (net?) today at 11:30 PDT on East Simulcast (TGID 9006). Net control was 4057708 (CCRMC), and they were calling facilities in various cities. Check-ins were coming from other 4057xxx users. It concluded at 11:40.

They are transitioning to phase II as we speak, they plan on being finished with the hardware part in June, 2019, one year of full testing then flipping the switch July of 2020.
The new radios are on the street. I've heard Fremont officers mention "go to channel A7 on the new radios, the old A9" or something similar. Others aren't sure if the new radio is transmitting (perhaps side tone volume was off or low). My question is does the move to Phase II require any changes to the existing phase I program on the scanner? It doesn't look like it from what I can tell. I'm using a 996P2 and TRX-1. Seems like it would be seem less unless the talk groups change. Thanks for any comments.

I'm getting encrypted traffic tonight on talk group ID 3437 on Site 6 (CoCo East).

Radio ID ranges are

32155xx, 32171xx, 32172xx, 32175xx, 32178xx

Best guess is this is something Oakland PD related based on the TGID and RID ranges.

Might be a Tac channel for Oakland. Oakland does not have any other encrypted TG's. It is a Friday night so maybe this has to do with their plan to crack down on sideshow activity?

Found a new TG today on CoCo Central, 7161. Definitely traffic related to the city of Concord. Whoever they were were in the area of Monument Blvd and Systron Drive. They kept mentioning 'takeaways' and said they were at 'the house.' Radio ID's I caught were 4143178, 4143075, and 4143069. There were probably one or two more I missed. Whatever they were doing was aborted because they "22 back to Concord." One of the persons said "Par, these radios are so good." I'm not sure who these people could be of if it's even Law related.

4143xxx radio IDs are Concord PD (per East Bay Regional Communications System (EBRCS) Radio IDs - The RadioReference Wiki), and they have talkgroup IDs in the 715x/716x/717x range, so it makes sense. I wonder if they're testing Phase-II radios or something........... just a SWAG.

Found two new TG pairs tonight. TG 7709 and 7727. I can confirm 7709 is 'SAR 1' and 7727 is 'OES 1' Both channels had Radio ID's of 4077***. They were running a mock Search and Rescue of a 13 year old lost in the woods. They had 10+ teams looking for him. The search groups were using TG 7709 and the scenario leaders were using TG 7727. TG 7732 also popped up and was utilized for this drill but I don't have a name for it.

The DB list TG 7719 as CCCO OES1 but tonight TG 7727 was clearly OES 1.

I also had TG's 7733 & 7610 pop up but they were ENC.

7610 puts the TG in Walnut Creeks ballpark, Walnut Creek doesn't have any ENC TG's in the DB. The other TG's are in the Sheriffs range.

Had to go to Antioch for a funeral, so road tripped the SDS-100 and SDS-200 to scan EBRCS for ConFire and others on the system. Pretty much stayed on the East Simulcast. Got the P25 NAC programmed at 1F6. They both have been really good on this system, really happy with them.

Does someone have a DTMF decoder they could run those through? Would be interesting to figure out what those are. Maybe a phone patch?
