Hi, I was wondering if anyone knew how far Monterey County's P25 Trunked system reaches? Can it be monitored in the Santa Cruz County or San Benito County areas or is it limited to within Monterey County?
I see. right now I'm in the northern part of San Benito County, closer to Santa Cruz County and I've been trying to pick up Monterey County P25 on my TRX-1 and not getting anything. Although I have only been trying out this scanner for a few days so maybe I didn't program it right. The software is kinda complicated.Depending on where you are located in Santa Cruz County, it should have some coverage, at least for monitoring.
San Benito County would be really iffy, too many mountains, maybe in Hollister and San Juan Bautista, but unlikely in most of the rural parts of the county.
The analog system was a simulcast, in that each channel had the same traffic transmitted from each site.Oh, I see, I was thinking it was similar to their county analog system, where every repeater is linked and broadcast the same audio on different output frequencies. I didn't know they were just standalone repeater sites, not connected to each other.
Carmel is still on VHF due to not being part of the county 911 system. But I still see their TG pop up every once and whileSemi related, are they still simulcasting on VHF? I was near Carmel this week and heard PD units on their traditional primary. Have they not moved over or have they moved over and are linked somehow?
