Drexel-Heights, Rural Metro, Pascua Pueblo, and Tucson FD's are all on PCWIN now.

Northwest and its associates are still on VHF and for the foreseeable future won't be joining PCWIN :(

I've already updated the PCWIN TRS.

Have fun,

From what I have read the fire dept is now on PCWIN which is a 700mhz P25 Phase 2 system requiring either a compatible Motorola radio or a Phase 2 Trunking scanner such as the GRE 800, Uniden 436 and Uniden 536.

If a scanner you must program the system into the scanner or select the system depending on which scanner you get and then select/put in the appropriate talkgroups to receive the departments you wish to hear.

Please see the following link for the PCWIN Trunk system.

Pima County Wireless Integrated Network (PCWIN) Trunking System, Tucson, Arizona - Scanner Frequencies

Some talkgroups on this system are using Project 25 Phase II TDMA modulation which can ONLY be monitored using a P25 Phase II compatible scanner.

Please visit the RR Wiki Project 25 page at APCO Project 25 - The RadioReference Wiki for additional information.

As a reminder, 19 April we have our monthly SEARM meeting which we will discuss the PCWIN system and demonstrate the radios for you that can hear the system.

Please see the thread in the Arizona forum about the SEARM meeting.

Thanks
