All OSP operations are on the Ohio MARCS Statewide trunked system. This is a digital system and requires a digital scanner to monitor.Can anyone tell me how i can get the osp frequencys for dist-1 -2 and what type of system are they on
Make sure you have the system set to Motorola Type II, not P25. Ohio MARCS only uses P25 for voice; otherwise it's a fairly typical Type II system.I have the psr-500 and put in the p-25 tsys and the id numbers to districts 1-2 can't get anything what am I doing wrong ,I'm fairly new to this
That's beside the point; it's Type II now. And near future? I wouldn't hold my breath; it's going to cost millions the state doesn't have. Haven't even heard any proposed timelines at work.For now. They are planning on updating it to a P25 system in the near future.
9600 baud is in the plans for the future when funding is available. It would be irresponsible to buy radios without that option, otherwise when the switch is made it would be costly for your county to upgrade all your radios and there might not be grant money available as there was when those radios were purchased.Well, all the radios our county just bought have 9600 baud trunking.
No big deal, so do all the ones I have in the office; it just makes sense to buy them that way. 9600 baud capability is not a particularly reliable indicator, especially since there are a few interoperable P25 systems in Ohio now. The thread at hand has to do with MARCS today, not MARCS a few years from now.Well, all the radios our county just bought have 9600 baud trunking.
