thanks for the heads up on 1032. have to work on reception on the hills p25 site from over here in pinellas. the pinellas p25 site 12 is running without coms this evening, looks like site 12 was deleted from the pinellas p25 rr data base.

TTFD is on there as well, using the same talkgroup ID as on the EDACS system (in decimal).

Site 12 was removed when it was no longer in service. No Voice TG were on site 12, which was a 700mhz zone. The 700mhz is only for HPD for Pinellas (as per a Moto installer working on the system) . BTW this should have its on Forum now in Hillsborough LOL

TTPD sounded great but TTFD & Radio Techs sounded garbled when the technicians were working on the radios and system also the signal from my local tower for them was all over the place.

Also, TTPD is still using the HC EDAC's system as well for the time being while I guess the radio technicians getting the P25 up and running.

Anybody know the time frame for all of Hillsborough Co to go P-25. If they are going to set up more towers so Temple Terrace PD has a wider coverage area. Any info would be helpful. I live in Brandon I can't receive the P-25 system at my location but can receive the east and west EDACS system here in Brandon. Is the P-25 system planned to go encrypted or not? Thanks

I live in Valrico and I use a Comet DS-150 discone antenna in the attic and can pick up Temple Terrace with no problems what's so ever I recommend if not already check in to a discone antenna for your scanner so you can be able to pick up TT police/ems/fire and etc.

Keep in mind Analog FM you will always will be able to pick up the Analog FM/NFM signal coming from a repeater system. When it comes to digital it always searches for a digital signal. You'll have to be close or have a great antenna that is high enough to have a chance to pick up a digital system.

I am not able to pick up a CC for the P25 system. Has something changed? I am using a 996XT and i am located in central Tampa.

I don't get the CC either from near TIA.

When Temple Terrace was using it the reception was great. Perhaps after Temple Terrace went back to EDACS they shut the P25 system down.

It appears that the P25 system is still ways off. I see plenty of subscriber portables in use that don't support P25 voice or 700mhz.

It's still on and active, if you want to call it that. TTFD is the only user that I've heard in quite some time.
