Does anyone know what freq the FHP aircraft that looks for speeders use? Years ago it was 154.92, but now I’m told it’s 800 analog conventional patched into their trunking system. I can’t find it in the FHP section on RR. Any info?

Thanks. I saw that. One of my buddy’s is a road ranger with a FHP trunked radio in his work truck, but he swears the planes are on an analog 800 freq patched into the slers aystem.

Simulcast systems don't work well when received at altitude so the possibility of a conventional resource patched into SLERS makes sense. If the state license shows any statewide frequencies, those might be the place to listen.

0004575346 is the FRN that SLERS uses, and GE is the radio service code for conventional 800 licenses. Out of 48 licenses that meet both conditions, only one is not for 8CALL90 and 8TAC91. I'd probably start there.

For those of us distant from the ground stations, I was wondering how often we'd hear something on the input freq.s? Seems like a crude way of telling if there was a/c ops in your neck of the woods, even if the content of the transmissions wasn't available.

i can most certainly speak to middle florida... activity on the "orlando Air" system is incredibly low. I ran DSD+ on the Orlando Air system for 48+ hours... i captured ONE keyup. Lots of affiliations, but one TG request. I would be curious if the activity down south in Miami/FLL were any more active than up here.... which also begs the question on who exactly is really authorized on the system..? aircraft only? who do they talk to - ? ground units? This could be a non-starter for the ground units because every FHP car I've looked at (again, in middle florida) did not have a P25 radio in it - just an SLERS mobile and sometimes a low end VHF rig - and one guy had a CB velcro'd in.

YMMV.

FHP has conventional simplex frequencies that are ProVoice Encrypted, not sure if they are used for air ops.

I haven't run up and down the TPike in a while but at one point I found the eye in the sky calling radar down to the troops on 800 Mutual Aid, don't recall which one of the 4 channels but the Close Call went off around Ft Drum. At first, I heard the plane then as I got closer I started to hear the guys on the ground and eventually drove right through the trap.
