Whenever the impacted comm centers move.Still wondering when Fire CC and Law CC will migrate...
The County Fire talkgroups are countywide - so if there is a radio monitoring those TGs on the South, the South will carry it. And if there is no radio on the West, the TGs will not talk on the West.Calfire talkgroups are weird now, getting 10 and 11 zone north county traffic on South, but nothing on West or the old RCS North site.
Migrate.By move do you mean migrate, or they are physically relocating Comm centers?
There are two State stations in the West footprint. They are dispatched on VHF. If the 800 radios are turned off, no affiliation.The weird thing is the units were in Valley Center, Pauma, those really far up there areas. I could understand if they were only affiliating on the North site 42, but not havng any new 45 or old 2 site and only old site 1 and new 41 was strange for Valley Center area traffic.
As it should be.I cannot receive site 42 or 44 from anywhere south of the 56.
The Comm Centers are on the NextGen system.Question on the Comm Centers I have not been able to find an answer on in the forums.
Have the comm centers moved to the NextGen System?
If yes are they in the simulcast for the West, East, South sites?
I no longer copy them on the legacy RCS system and so far have not heard them on the NextGen West, East, South sites.
The scanner is the Uniden BCD536 so its possible its related to the scanners ability to capture all simulcast (its rock solid on the CHP, Sheriff, CalFire, etc.) but no comm centers or law air?
I don't see where the dispatch centers would be any different than the mobiles / portables. They all use the same backbone to transmit their signals.Thanks K6CDO, I am up in Ramona (West End)l istening with a BCD536 and have not been successful in hearing (at all not even distorted) the comm centers on the NextGen System, strong copy on the other traffic on the west, south and east sites, it may be the simulcast issues, re, the BCD536? Thanks for the feedback, 73 JT KG6ODI
The SDS-200 will improve performance, but not reception. Only an antenna will do that. I had to switch to a Yagi to clean up reception on an SDS-200 and a BCD536HP. Neither did very well with the discone.I have a bcd 436 and I live up in the Temecula area with a discone on my roof however I only am able to receive the Northeast site. Are cities like Oceanside and Carlsbad exclusively on the North or West sites? Thinking about purchasing a sds 200 in hopes of improved performance with the new P25 phase 2 simulcast system however do not want to make the investment if little to no improvement is seen. What Does the asterisk mean next to the individual talkgroups listed for NextGen on the RR site? Thanks for any insights anyone may offer!
Programming snafu...whe I created my master NextGen site lists in Sentinel, I inadvertantly put 853.6625 twice, and left out 853.6875, which is the current control channel. Did not notice it until now, because site 42 has changed CC's several times, so it worked before it switched to 853.6875. #doh!I am currently in north Oceanside off of Douglas and N River Rd. Once I went east of the I-5 on SR76 a few miles, the ONLY SITE I can receive is Site 44 Northeast. I cannot get 42 North, and I can see 43 East a tiny bit. I have all the RRdb listed CC's for Site 42, but nothing, not a single bar anywhere north of the SR76...what gives?
