The AFG grant was only for subscriber radios, the county system will be Harris.I seen this article earlier in the year that Huron Co Fire and EMS would be upgrading to Marcs.
Huron County safety services will upgrade radio equipment
How is that possible, unless you have specific information on the trunked site? And if you have information on the trunked site, can you share it?Heard some traffic this morning from this system after hearing some tech talk a week ago
must still be in the process of bringing it online full time
Hmm, Ok. You might want to add it to your scanner as a P25 trunked system with those frequencies.After reading your post of the freqs i put them in the scanner as tune channels with enable auto store it filled in the nac and decoded p25
one of the towers is 5 miles from the house
In TUNE mode on your PRO-197, if you check each of those four frequencies, one of them will be the control channel (if the trunked system is actually online). And if you TUNE to the control channel, it will give all the information that we need in order to add it to the DB.In the process of taking the SDR plunge here with a new pc arriving tommorow and RTL SDR dongles using SDRTrunk
I'll be monitoring the tune freqs on my pro 197 in the meantime and will let you know when things get going here
Ok, thanks. I would not get too excited then. 771.00625 is also used on multiple MARCS sites, and a 34C NAC would be indicative of a MARCS site. So the activity you are currently hearing on 771.00625 is likely nothing to do with the Huron stuff.Have not heard any control transmission yet just stand alone P25 Transmissions scanning the above mentioned freqs
NAC showed 34C everything has been on 771.00625
Thank you. I guess they just haven't progressed that far then. I appreciate the sleuthing!I was in Bellevue for work today and took the scanner with me to see if I could dig up any information on this system. I did not detect any activity on the listed frequencies. I also did not detect a control channel on any of the frequencies.
FYI - Presumably that is going to be a simulcast (up to 5 sites I think I saw in commissioner notes) -- although I don't know how many actual sites within the simulcast are online yet. If you are using the C4FM decoder in SDRTrunk, at some point as more sites in the simulcast come online you may end up having to switch to the CQPSK decoder. But it looks like you have a great signal and decode right now. Very nice.
