I've setup Broadcastify Calls Nodes for the GATTRS system in the Austin Metro Area. It is capturing Simulcast 1 and 2 and the Williamson County Simulcast Site.


It's working super well to identify talkgroups that have not been ID'd yet


Can anyone maybe think about deploying nodes for Bastrop, Caldwell etc?

The audio so far sounds way better than before! I would be more than interested in helping out but you have the 3 nodes that I would be best suited for contributing already covered (GATRRS Sites 1, 2, 20).

I do have a technical question; the few times that I have setup playlists to monitor very specific feeds, I still will hear traffic on my radio that does not come across the nodes platform. This is pretty common still even from listening to it this morning; the application notes state that this platform is able to ingest "every" call that comes across...its that really true or is it just the first call that the scanner is able to lock on and any other simultaneous conversations get dropped?

Just one example from Lakeway PD, there is a conversation at 10:55:56-10:56:13 between a Bee Cave officer and Lakeway PD dispatch that I heard on my scanner but did not come across the Calls platform. The red line on the Calls platform is where the gap is.

I might need to increase the amount of recorders we have on the system. Right now it's set at 15 which might be a problem... I'll probably need to filter out a few more talkgroups like public works and busses etc. But yes, it does capture every call up to a max of 15 simultaneous as of now. We might be bumping up against that max..

Stay tuned...

OK - I'm filtering more public works and ISD busses... and increased the recorders to 25.

That should help much more in capturing every call on the system

Are you able to do that all with just one radio/scanner?

Ill listen to it again tonight and see if I hear any misses.

While we already have a thread open, does anyone know if there is a way to see what site is being used with a talkgroup on Broadcastify Calls? I am specifically curious what sites are being used to hear the TGs for the SAUA system.

Click on the call details icon for any call and you'll get details on the individual call - which includes which site the call was captured fromScreen Shot 2020-10-14 at 6.43.14 AM.pngScreen Shot 2020-10-14 at 6.43.47 AM.png
