It seems that the bus talkgroups, i.e. 108, 109, etc are encrypted now. My Home Patrol stops on them but there is no audio. It does not show up as encrypted but it does the same thing as the Halton P25 system that I have programmed on it, if there is a transmission on any of what we think are the Halton Police service talkgroups it stops, no audio.Is GO Transit really going encrypted? I heard rumor of this and sure enough today the Maintenance talk group is gone.. check out the attached screenshot.
I have never seen a RID like that on this system, although I only have about 350 or so.I've seen Security, the old Maintenance channel and the techs using encryption. The buses (and a few others) are using Phase II.
I suspect the Maintenance channel might have been reassigned. Not sure which group that RID belongs to.
You wont hear any of the phase 2 talkgroups on the scanner you have.. I can hear the busses fine on my 536 and psr800 but the Maintenance guys are now encrypted.. Eric.. I would love a excel spreadsheet with all your rids.. the last list was fantastic.I have never seen a RID like that on this system, although I only have about 350 or so.
RID's that begin with 11, i.e. 110002 is bus dispatch, a RID like 700101 is also bus dispatch, and Willowbrook activity I see RID's like 223018.
The only activity I continue to hear today are Rail Ops, ones that trip the sensors probably at Burlington West and some regular GO Rail on the Lakeshore East and West lines.
No, as far as everybody knows, you are not going encrypted.I work for GO as a driver, had no idea we were going encrypted, glad though our updates help with traffic updates!
And thank you for providing us with these updates. Out of any transit system GO, has always been the most useful and entertaining. I literally want to throw things when Burlington Transit comes on, zzzzzzz.I work for GO as a driver, had no idea we were going encrypted, glad though our updates help with traffic updates!
