• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

They are in negoiations with Indian Hills to use same frequencies and add the IH repeater to the above, DTRS use is only 6 portables for both depts so it is limited use on FIRE-SW.

Nope and never have been that applies to most of those foothills depts Elk Creek, InterCanyon, Indian Hills, North Fork, etc.

800Mhz digital radios are just too expensive to equipt all the volunteers with.

You certainly could monitor those with your Pro-96 but might be a little far away for the simplex ones.

Foothills Fire Departments

As stated before, the concern of the departments in the foothills has been the tendancy to go "digital" in critical situations on the state system. Bring your chair to Evergeen Lake, take in the view, don't forget your radio, and tell me I'm wrong.

Any chance these maybe added to the database?
I'll get 'em in, but i'm not familiar where a lot of these small volunteer fire agencies are - what county do these need to go in?

is it the same as programing the digital.. were you need control channels to use the frequncy or is it set up differnt? i was going to also ask you what you ment by that it might be a little far away for the simplex ones? is it better to set up another scanner for the non digital so you dont start getting confused with digital and non digital on one. can you mabey give me away how you personally have it set up for easy and non confusing way.
Thanks

OK deep breath. Simplex channels don't utilize a repeater so are often much shorter in coverage distance, there are primarily used for on-scene operations such as fire ground channels.

Assuming you use win96 to program your Pro-96 you will see on the screen that programming a conventional channel versus a trunked one is completely different. No control channel is needed for the conventional ones just the channel itself and possibly the pl as well.

Digital and non digital can be mixed on one radio or seperated on different radios that's mainly personal preference.

I always recommend Phil's convenential and trunked files p96 files available at www.radiohacker.com they are an excellent source of beginning programming information or to provide you with a basic programming template to start with.

That is very true about the radios, but I thought some had put the digital radios only on the trucks, so you would hear the volunteers on VHF and the units on DTRS.

Anyways, for a breakdown on Jeffco, whick of the volunteer agencies are on DTRS?

Foothills, Highland Rescue, Pleasant View, Edgewater I hear on DTRS. What about Golden Gate?

These frequencies have been worked in to Jefferson County.

Out of curiosity, how big of an agency (personnel, district) is this? I'm curious because they have three repeaters and two simplex channels and that seems like a lot for a volunteer agency.

Just a small 200 call per/year volunteer fire dept. But they might share them with another even smaller volunteer 100 call per/year dept.

Deep breath done. There are several rural fire departments serving a given geographic area in the foothills west and both north and south of Denver. Foothills Fire is in Genessee, Inter-Canyon is along South Turkey Creek, and beyond, . These folks have been VHF, and I still hear them as such, but have confirmed transition to digital, at leasst in the case of Inter-Canyon, others likely to follow. They are very active. Worth listening to if the sites reach your area.

Might want to check your sources, why would Inter-Canyon and Indian Hills invest in four new VHF's freqs if they are moving to DTRS? DTRS will remain in the mobiles but the overall operation for both of those depts will remain on VHF, each member will not be issued a $4,000 portable.
