• 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:

Site / Frequency / Market Search Results

In all strangeness, I'm hearing both sides of what sounds like regular Zone 1 traffic on 465.125, PL 69.3. This traffic was coming across this UHF freq, and the Ossipee Regionnet (172.425), but I heard no traffic from the Ossipee trunk site, on any talkgroup. A few moments later, the same SP unit signed on the air with Turnpike HQ on TG 715, this I heard via Ossipee. 465.125 has a strong signal here in Strafford County, NH, on 3 different radios.

Pike was still on their normal TGID and pleasant mountain was relaying RCC traffic as normal. I was seeing the weird TGID on the Ossipee site though

The 35xxx TGs are automatically generated by the system when an analog radio sttemps to access the trunk via on of the Regionnet repeaters. Zone 1 is on TG 35130 this morning, and the Aggie Regionnet (155.4525), so this maybe the culprit.

I know they've been having some problems with the system, I've seen a few cars with temporary mag mount antennas on them, so maybe their countering that by using the nets.

Gray is also coming over 460.125 PL 69.3, this is weaker than the 465 freq, so I'm guessing it might be coming from Ossipee? I'm fairly sure 465.125 is coming from Agamenticus.

I just find it strange that today and yesterday I have not seen TGs 711 or 712, but 31530 is all over Zone 1

Ok so I am not the only one experiencing alot of TG 31530? New at scanning MSCOMMNET with this particular rig so I apologize for the redundant questions today and in the future. ;)

Can someone answer a question for me? In the four MSCOMMNET zones there are 15 Conventional P25 sites (with 80E NAC). Some of them seem to simulcast the trunking conversations throughout the system. What is the purpose of these 15 sites/frequencies? If in fact they are used for simulcasting the trunking system is everything in the system simulcast through these frequency sites? Just wondering. Thanks!

Interoperability. :D
Allowing the NON MSCommNet users the ability to Monitor and Communicate when appropriate

Misread the post, the Analog are for Interop (Opps)

As the system is still new, there is still much to learn

Also, with all the Grant money dept's got over the years, any of those radios bought with grant money HAD to be P25 compatible
correct but you forget nor everyone has p25 radioes

Sounds right, but not everyone has P25 capability so there must be another purpose. Do these 15 sites simulcast the whole MSCOMMNET system?

Looking over all the Documents (worth the read) and matching those conventional sites, it seems those are SOLAR sites, so they could not handle the load of a 24/7 trunk, so why not just go conventional. :cool:

See the map at
http://www.maine.gov/oit/services/radio/mscommnet/MsCommNetSitesMap11012014.pdf

Also SNE has linked many of the documents available at
MSCOMMNET Maine State Communications Network - Scan New England Wiki

Interop is 162.2 Hz Analog
MSCommnet specific is $80E

Thanks Bill. The sites I am referring to is from the following. They are in bold lettering:
MSCOMMNET Maine State Communications Network - Scan New England Wiki
I am not talking about the sites from the interoperability brochure. I mean the 15 sites on the above SNE page. Zone 1 has none, but 2, 3, and 4 do have those conventional sites with $80E and are in bold. Listening to Mt. Blue Mt Blue Avon Franklin Conventional 155.4450 80E NAC it seems that all Zone 2 traffic was simulcast on this frequency. Any way, no biggie. I am just a curious soul, that's all. Thanks so much for answering my questions!

If you match those names to the MSCommnet Docs you will see the "SOLAR" icon :cool:
on the MAP - previously provided in a link
