• 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:

Lots of constant Phase II testing today...my TRX2 and WS1098 are having issues, only reliably decoding ungarbled voice about 50% of the time. Ugh :(

Is the solution at this point to invest in an SDS100 to monitor the Nextgen?

Just started monitoring Nextgen today on SDS-100 and heard a couple of conversations that were strong and clear.

Firing up the TRX-1 to see how it compares on the system.

Well, by "aligned" I meant adjusted antenna patters and individual site timing delays to correct where any simulcast phasing errors take place in the cell's service areas.

LOTS of Phase II testing currently, sounds like one tech driving from Imperial to San Diego testing along the way. Talk of being on site 46 and site 50, east site also supposed to be live, all of Imperial valley sites are hot etc. Lot's of 1 minute + length transmissions to monitor now. My Whistler WS1098 is having no issues with 100% clean and clear Phase II decode on south, but this is only on the single 855.9625 test channel.

Anyone hearing anything on the West Simulcast today? I've been listening all morning and hearing nothing.

Thanks,
Laura

After Labor Day for full production.
Still a lot of testing to be done, including a test group of users this summer.
