• 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:

I fired up OP25 and noticed the CC switched and I didn't put it into the TSV. I loaded GQRX to find it and it ended up being a channel not listed as a CC on the RR SID. I read about it a little bit in some old posts and not real clear what OP25 will do if I need to put into the tsv 3 CC's with the same NAC. One thread post said it'll treat it as primary and secondary but never said anything about a third. Another post said it'll scan all them.

I tried to put in all 5 CC's but it's tbsk counter thing stops at 55 then does nothing.

5 should be ok - make sure it is formatted right. It should rotate through them until it "sees" the control channel.

If you have one system but multiple possible cc frequencies, list them in a comma separated list inside the appropriate column of trunk.tsv. op25 will tune them in sequence until it finds an actual control channel, then it will lock on until the signal is lost.

Thanks It's taking me time to learn OP25 and getting there. Sounding good!

I wonder how OP25 will handle a P25 PII TDMA system with 20 repeater output frequencies. 40 time slots wow! that's what it'll be like when the OKC completely cuts over from EDACS Provoice.

It'll be fine, but your ears may not keep up!

OP25 works great here in Houston on TxWARN. There is never a moment without radio traffic from early in the morning to late at night. There are at least 2 sites with 21 output frequencies.
