What is "the DB"?
RR Database I believe. It's how I got started here.
Origionally I helped establish that system in the DB.
Thanks for establishing this part of the database. How did you ever determine the purpose of those talkgroup ids? I've discovered a few (conventional freqs) myself, but it's hard to determine the purpose of a frequency to name it and submit. It would seem impossible to determine something is NE Patrol or NE Dispatch. You'd have to log street names dispatched for a month to determine it was in the NE.
I've submitted a few conventional municipality frequencies I've discovered (North Hills Hospital, NRH Animal Control). Hopefully they get approved and added.
I know there are some contracted security on there. but for such a large system it seems lightly used. Sort of like the Texas Instruments 800 system, not heavily trafficed.
Noticed this myself. Wonder if they're utilizing something conventional as well or something. Perhaps I should take my camera on top of a garage in Sundance (as they really crack down on photographers on private property there.) and see if any activity shows up on the radio to shoo me off. On second thought probably not, if they found out I was scanning they may lock down their trunk from outsiders/scanners in retrospect.
Nice to chat with a couple of fellow scanners. Hopefully I can identify more freq's in my area!
