I have a pro651 and on Suffolk trunked system I noticed today there is nothing happening on this TG. Did something change? I haven't listened to it for a while.

They are no longer on the smart zone system. They are on the p25 system. It’s phase 2 which I believe your scanner won’t do but the hospital tg’s are phase one at this time.

That's what I thought! and no, my scanner does not do phase II so once scpd moves over I'll have to get another scanner. Thanks!

They have already moved over. All that’s left on smartzone is pd, some sheriff, very limited state and a fraction of fres.

You can get a new scanner if you want. Hospitals and fres are phase one right now and only phase two is a handful of fd. I believe your scanner will do the phase one so if you try, site 4 is what you want. 700 freqs are phase two and 800 are phase 1

This is 100% correct as I still listen with a phase 1 scanner and receive SCPD ,SHERIFF , FRES and MEDCOM. My understanding of a phase 2 systems is of an affiliated radio is still phase 1 the system will roll back to a phase 1 phase to accommodate those radios till only phase 2 radios are affiliated.

Only if the system has the DDM (Dynamic Dual Mode) option, which not all systems do, otherwise the talkgroups are strapped for either FDMA or TDMA.

Did the 7th switch over ? I havne't heard anything either in the past two days. I did just check the 5th and heard some chatter. And I'm hearing the 1st. I near the 5, 6 and 7th so really only listen to them.
