It's supposed to be only P25. I went to their kickoff for this thing, and Broken Sky was never mentioned, even though Harris's comm bus had Broken Sky stuff installed therein. They're only gonna run encryption on "special ops" talkgroups, which makes sense. After all, what's so secret about the dog catcher, or the meter reader ?Is this P25 or something like Open Sky?
RN-T.com - New emergency communications tower rising on Mount Alto
One will be right next to the race track on Hillindale Rd off Chulio Rd. and one at Leonard Rd.Pictures are from the Leonard Rd. site.
Leonard Rd, eh ? I thought they were gonna put that one over towards Wax/Wax Rd, or will they actually have two close together ? I'd be wondering about coverage down in that wooded zone off Chulio, if they don't have a tower over there. That's a tricky area for me on even VHF, so I'd wonder how 800 would be.
Thanks RomeRon, I kinda wondered about that. Were it not for the Hillindale site, you can forget doing a foot chase thru the woods on Chulio toward the county line, not to mention good coverage at Wal-Mart and the track. So, by this new development, I guess Wax is out ???One will be right next to the race track on Hillindale Rd off Chulio Rd. and one at Leonard Rd.
Could it have been CAD, as in computer aided dispatch? CAD systems assign a number to every call that is entered but the radio operator has the option to also assign a run or case # to each CAD call for the agency that responded. Not all CAD entries require a run or case # so maybe the officer just needed the CAD # for reference in his miscellaneous report.Does anyone know what a cat number is? The polioce ask the dispatcher for their cat number.
According to the wiki, it's supposed to be P25 Phase II TDMA.Frequency Emission is: 9K80D7W, on both the Trunked & Conventional Freq.'s
I am not sure how this emission will affect scanner users on Monitoring this system.
My understanding is that they are supposed to be running P-25 Digital Voice and Data (Mobile Data).
I am not sure if this emission covers both Digital Voice & Data or not. Any ideas?
I have never seen this type emission before.
