I did a brief sweep of the Philadelphia P25 municipal system (Zone 1, site 3) this morning and found a number of talkgroups that aren't listed in the database. They seem to be quite active. I have no authoritative information on what they are for, but I have some notes on some of them.

Anyway, for what it's worth:

Dec - Hex Notes
-----------------------------------------------------------------
329 - 149 Street excavation report
421 - 1a5
479 - 1df IT chatter (ref to fire stations)
539 - 21b
629 - 275
815 - 32f
817 - 331
825 - 339
831 - 33f
903 - 387
1535 - 5ff Prison guard chatter
1537 - 601 Prison guard chatter
1539 - 603 Prison guard chatter
1541 - 605 Prison guard chatter
1543 - 607 Prison guard chatter
1549 - 60d
1555 - 613 Reference to shop, maintenance
1711 - 6af Court guard chatter
1713 - 6b1 Court guard chatter
1715 - 6b3
1717 - 6b5 Court guard chatter
1801 - 709 prisons? "move one resident back to the unit"
1807 - 70f

Thanks for the info. I had subscribed to your guide way back when, and had no idea it was still being updated - glad it is!

Anyway, i can confirm that all of these are active.

It's really unfortunate the DB here is so out of date for that system.

It's not that it's out of date. It's that the leadership of this site made certain decisions regarding which info they would publicly post and which info they would use discretion with (none, by the way), so folks like Joe and myself have chosen to no longer submit any information we have to these people. There's plenty of things I've discovered, both on and off the Philly system that I choose to keep to myself...

And another new one. TG 1901 / 76D just appeared the other day, with testing chatter.

Reconciling your guide with my notes, I've so far found four active TGs on the Philly 1 system that aren't listed in your guide:

0479 - 1DF - IT chatter
1707 - 6AB - Unknown, but the TGID is in the range for CJC guards.
1901 - 76D - Radio test
4001 - FA1 - Testing

Believe the 400x talkgroups were the ones they used for initial testing of the P25 system during the build out.

Are any of the conventional channels still in use by the City? Haven't caught activity on anything other than the VHF frequency the water department uses at the treatment plants. Last time I caught anything on streets band was last winter. Can't remember for the other conventional channels. I'm seeing sanitation now has a talkgroup on the system so I'm wondering if that means their conventional repeater is done.
