Part of the problem is that the entire DPS section here on the DB is overly complicated and not listed correctly. The Duplex channels have an input listed which is incorrect. The input frequency column is supposed to be used only for repeater pairs, not duplex pairs (in accordance with our submission guidelines put out by Lindsay). Where it is listed that way, for example the main DPS dispatch pair (155.4600 / 154.6800) as Tom says, you need to put both of them in your scanner as the dispatch transmits on 155.4600 and the mobiles transmit on 154.6800 and in most places are not repeated on the dispatch frequency. Beaumont has been repeating DPS1 since the storms last year and occasionally (just lately) Houston will do it also.ervin1 said:i am listening to d.p.s. i can hear peirce,victoria, corpus christi dispatch clearly in all locations but no patrol units which seems amazing to me for the simple fact i am 25 miles to the nearest dispatch which is in victoria and am using a 396t with a radio-shack 800mhz rubber duck. I can hear both analog and p-25 dispatches clearly
Well it is not as simple as that, is it?nd5y said:How are they supposed to be listed if "Input" isn't for a mobile transmit frequency?
Ervin, if you haven't already, also enter the output frequencies listed under "RM" for Pierce and Corpuservin1 said:i have entered both frequencies into the 396t and im picking up traffic both base and mobile out of victoria d.p.s. (p-25) . Guess the other mobiles are to far of a distance out of corpus christi and peirce thnks for the help guys
Add 155.5350 to that list. I know of at least two repeaters on that one.hiegtx said:Ervin, if you haven't already, also enter the output frequencies listed under "RM" for Pierce and Corpus
These are duplicated (reused) in various locations, but are grouped around 159.0900 and 159.2100. There's a couple just off those frequencies as well, like 159.2175 and 159.0975, which are narrowband FM (FMN) listings.
