Seems that there is a new TG active on the state wide for the LSP. I'm getting activity on TG ID 19. Most of it is them calling Troop A to run tags etc. Maybe a new Troop A dispatch ID? Anyone else picking up activity on TG ID 19?
Possibly. I'll see if it comes back this evening around the same time I heard it. Maybe a patch from 5PM till ?? but it wasn't that much radio traffic just every now and then a car calling Troop A but wasn't like the TG for Troop L dispatch which has a good amount of traffic on it. This was just sporadic and only certain units.milf said:Sounds like a NIGHT patch possibly??
Yep you're correct. It does look to be a patch. I forgot about the S-bit on my scanner. Still good to know about the patches thoughfireman1417 said:The talkgroups you're talking about are patches. An ID# + 3 (status bit) indicates a patch. Troop A F1 Dispatch ID is 16, the new one you see is 19. The State HQ channel is 5776, the new one you see is 5779. I know awile back I was hearing Troop A on the HQ channel on a regular basis, I just assumed that for whatever reason Trp A had switched their dispatch to a different channel, however it may be possible that they are patching their dispatch channel over to the HQ channel. My Pr0-95 it ignores status bits and just appears as one of the talkgroups that is patched, some scanners however can be set to show the status bits and so you're probably seeing the patch.
