It was weird to read about the codes not being shared between agencies, I'm not familiar enough with interagency comms to know if that's a common occurrence or not. The next county meeting should be interesting.And here I was, under the impression the Govt. worked for US.
Sounds like "Partain" has gotten too big for his britches.
Probably why the sheriff won't share his key with anyone and I couldn't blame him. With endless 7tacs, vtacs, local versions thereof interoperability shouldn't be a issue or secondary keys for such kept to that off main frequency for other entities.It was weird to read about the codes not being shared between agencies, I'm not familiar enough with interagency comms to know if that's a common occurrence or not.

One of the county commissioners was arrested a few weeks ago for multiple RICO statute violations. They arrested nine along with several members of his family, it was like something out of the godfather. Running EBT card scams, drugs, all sorts of stuff. He had the food contract at the county jail. He did not look happy in his orange jumpsuit.
I knew him pretty well, he was voted the best commissioner in the county recently. He had his hand in most everything in the country. I'm waiting for some more arrests.
Found in the FCC database what I strongly suspect is their MotoTRBO frequencies. WRCC754, WRCD221, WRCD222, and WRCD223 are their callsigns. These are licensed under Part 22 (former VHF radiotelephone/paging frequencies), not Part 90, so they don't show up in RadioReference's FCC database which has elected to exclude Part 22 (CP Radio Service Code) licenses. This sort of licensing is similar to White County and Habersham County MotoTRBO licenses.I can confirm it is MotoTRBO. Can anyone find the frequencies for this system? I do know it is fully operational. All talkgroups are simulcasted onto the old analog frequencies.
You could find Elbert's frequencies the same way I described above for Hart County. Appears they are on Part 22 licenses too - WQYH596, WQYH597, WQYH598, WQYH599, WQYH600, and WQYH601.Does anyone have the actual frequencies (or CC, TG's) for Elbert county yet?
Take it however you want to take it. I just told you where you'll find their frequencies and even gave you the callsigns for their FCC licenses. Personally I'd take that as closer to a 'yes' if we're being binary about it. But if that information isn't precise and detailed enough for you, or if you're just a dour person, then you should probably take it as a 'no'. Did that help guide how you should take it?So, I take that as a no?
I do know for a fact from speaking to a system user that it is a trunking system that is fully encrypted. I was told that the frequencies were purchased from the U.S. Coast Guard. I don't know how exactly that would work since frequencies are licensed through the FCC. Here is a local news article that also says frequencies were purchased. HC administrator Partain updates commissioners on digital radio system – 92.1 WLHR In monitoring the TRS rebroadcast on the old analog frequencies, the MotoTRBO encrypted TPT can be heard in the background sometimes which confirms encryption. The tone I am referring to is listed at the bottom of this webpage W2SJW - Radio Sounds I am still unsure which trunking protocol they use. What's a good way to find that?Found in the FCC database what I strongly suspect is their MotoTRBO frequencies. WRCC754, WRCD221, WRCD222, and WRCD223 are their callsigns.

Now the challenge: Part 22 licenses are licensed by "frequency range" in a "market," rather than an "exact frequency" at a "specific location" the way Part 90 licenses are done.
So what you need to do is search the licensed ranges (152.105-152.135; 152.615-152.645; 152.765-152.795; and 152.795-152.825) and then find the exact frequencies that their repeaters are programmed for, and listen to figure out which agency is using them and what for (IF they are not encrypted). This is precisely the process I used in order to figure out the entire White County and Habersham County MotoTRBO systems "the old fashioned way".
If it was me, I'd set up a search from 152.105 to 152.825 and let 'er run. If you have a Uniden scanner that has "Discovery Mode," you can run a conventional Discovery from 152.105 to 152.825 and let it run for a while and see what you find in the recordings.
It will be interesting to see whether Hart County is using these frequencies as conventional non-trunked MotoTRBO repeaters (as White County does) or a Con+ trunking system (as Habersham County does).
Have fun! Let us know what you find!
