Monitoring today:Parma Fire 860.9375
Brooklyn Hts Fire New from the FCC Data Base 854.7875
i'm going to try and Monitor them to see if their Digital or Analog
The transmissions on Site 2 that I've heard have all been on TG289 the Fire Dispatch. I can't tell you for sure if they are being simultaneously transmitted on both Site 1 and Site 2. I have one Digital Scanner, where it stops is what I hear.They already have a license for that freq in Warrensville Hts - WPPY843.
Looks like they are testing for the possibilty of adding a northern site for the P25 system.
The fire dept. stuff you are hearing on this - is it simulcast on the regular P25 system TGs?
Ed,So like how are you doing this? Add a seperate site with just that channel? I suspect the Warrensville site is not active since I hear that area very well and can't hear anything on that channel, but I doubt I can hear anything off Tuxedo either.
Ottawa and Parma are two separate Sites that share a P25 Core.Also if Parma and Ottawa are linked together; what is the purpose of the link if you cannot hear Ottawa County over here?
Bud, thanks for the information. Does anybody have a clue as to what is going on with the EDACS SCAT site? Was thsi merged into the P25 TRS? I think that the SCAT site was by I-271.Ottawa and Parma are two separate Sites that share a P25 Core.
Why is Ottawa using Parma's Core? Because it's cost effective. One Core can handle many Sites. Installing a complete P25 system is an expensive under taking. Which is made up of a large number of components. By sharing the Core, Ottawa doesn't have to purchase their own and (in theory) Parma reduces it's overall costs by sharing the Core costs.
