Okay, the TRX-1 made about 400 recordings of 46 different talkgroups. Way to big to report in a given post, so I'll share them in this thread in installments, one home channel at a time. Home channels in this system included 2, 4, 7, 9, 13 & 15. By posting the home channels separately, I can generally report on control & voice freqs found.

I had meant for the PSR800 to make this one of the things it recorded constantly, but this didn't happen, and I'll have to go through the programming and figure out why. So what I found was all on Friday 4/28 starting near 1pm and ending around midnight. Didn't find anything that I wanted to target, but did establish (and will share here) what TG's hog a lot of scan time and may contribute to concealing other interesting things.

This first installment is the talkgroups of home channel 2. I neglected to count the number of transmissions for this group, but I did for all the others. Here goes:

0-02-013 - nothing notable, not much traffic, cc consistently 855.8125
0-02-024 - possibly dispatching and/or supervising repairmen. voice once on 854.7875
0-02-030 - not much heard, cc855.8125
0-02-031 - ................do...........................
0-02-032 - -------------do-----------------------
0-02-045 - locking pin stuck, replace bolts on..., etc. one of the busier of this group
0-02-046 - one hit, no audio
0-02-047 - put in a 5-pack....next busiest channel to 0-02-045
0-02-048 - one hit, no audio
0-02-056 - one hit

Most consistent voice/control channel for this group 855.8125. Other freqs 854.7875, 860.8625, 856.8375, 855.0125 and 855.2875 carried voice. In some cases with 855.8125 as cc, and in some cases with the voice channel also being the CC.

Will try for another installment before I leave for work.

NIT LTR System #2 - Home Channel 4 TG's

Beginning with this group of channels, I began noting how many transmissions were recorded. This provides some guide as to which TG's are the biggest time-hogs.

0-04-001 (6) - cut something @ 6:00p
0-04-002 (22) - cargo outbound to sea
0-04-003 (6)
0-04-004 (6)
0-04-005 (4) - issue with wheelbox
0-04-006 (7) - loading cars? handbrake
0-04-008 (1) -
0-04-015 (1)

Most consistent CC was 857.8375 for these TG's. Other voice freqs incl. 858.9125, 856.8375, 860,7875, 854.7875, 855.8125, 858.8375, 855.0125 (voice only), 860.8625. More often than with the 02 TG's these alternate voice freqs were also the control freq as well. When VC and CC were different, 857.8375 was generally the CC.

NIT LTR #3 - Home Channel 7 TG's

Fewer TG's in this group, but lots of airtime. I already alerted you to the x-rated action on 0-07-032

0-07-015 - (unk)
0-07-016 (8) - someone to berth #
0-07-017 (2) -
0-07-018 (11)
0-07-027 (10)
0-07-032 (39) Day-long yakfest of lengthy transmissions were participants referred surprising often to their penises. The only business-related transmission captured was when Crane 7 announced he snapped a cable.

Primary VC/CC 856.8625. It was also the CC the clear majority of the time. Other VC's included 859.8375, 859.9125, 858.9125, & 860.7875. Sometimes these were also the CC, but more often were used as VC with 856.8625 as CC.
