Hi,

I use DSDPlus with two RTL-SDR receivers. The setup works extremely well.

Our local trunk system includes both police and fire. I want to hear every police broadcast.

If the voice channel is currently on a fire channel and a police talk group becomes active, I want the voice channel to immediately switch to the police channel.

Is there a way to do this with DSDPlus?

Thanks,
John

Yes it can be done. Edit the dsdplus.groups file.
Lower the fire priority TG or raise the PD priority TG. A lower number is higher priority than say 99. (50 is generally the default)
Can be done in the channel window during a call as well.
pretty sure it's in the notes.

Thank you for responding. I appreciate it.

I have it set up this way, but it does not seem to interrupt a fire transmission for a higher priority police transmission. It allows the fire transmission to keep playing and I don't hear the police transmission. Should the lower priority fire transmission be immediately stopped a soon as the police transmission starts?

I was wrong. It's working as you described. It appears to be interrupting lower priority transmissions to play higher priority. It didn't seem to be working that way, but as I watch closer it's working. Thanks for your help and patience with me.
