Any one familiar with which LE agency is using 453.1500 (103.5)? Data base shows KRV 232 but not much info. Thanks

Thanks again! Checking out scannerland while on vacation. Does Pigeon Forge
use SO channel? I think I heard them using 460.5750 (127.3) listed as Pittman Center FD. Systems seem complicated, any simplified info for visitor in Sevierville would be appreciated!

460.5750 - 127.3PL is CosbyFD in ****e Co.
Pitman Center is supposed to be 167.9

Looks like you got the surrounding counties covered.

Pigeon Forge Fire and Gatlinburg Fire use Nexedge so you can't monitor them
Seymour Fire use their conventional freq 145.310MHz
Catons Chaple fire use 453.5125MHz
Pitman Center Fire use 453.7375MHz
Sevierville Fire use the Land Air trunk system
ALL Other county fire station use the Land Air Trunk system

Sevierville Police use their conventional freq 460.075MHz 98% of the time and use the Land Air trunk system 2% of the time.
Pigeon Forge Police use the Pigeon Forge Public Safety trunk system on 700MHz P25 digital.

Gatlinburg Police are Nexedge digital so you can't monitor them either.

Thanks! Have not heard any traffic on 460.5750 (167.9) but lots on (127.3) including 700 LE units. That is why I thought maybe Pigeon Forge. Thanks again for the information.

That is ****e County Fire depatment's frequency with 127.3 pl (county to the east of Sevier) and sometimes the ****e County Sheriff department hops over to their frequency when they are having issues with their frequency of 460.100 MHz 127.3 pl.

We're up here in Gatlinburg now, on vacation. I'm just curious--what is the "Land Air trunk system"?

I was unable to get my 996T to track the Pigeon Forge TRS but was able to monitor P25 traffic using them as conventional frequencies....?

I was up there the other day and i didnt get anything to come through on that system Pigeon Forge Public Safety Trunking System, Pigeon Forge, Tennessee - Scanner Frequencies either. This is the first time I have programmed in a P25 digital trunk system too, so I didnt think much of it. I picked up SevierCo fire on the Greentop Mtn LTR site Land Air Systems Trunking System, Multiple, Tennessee - Scanner Frequencies so I know i have that programmed in right.

Maybe i programmed it in wrong or they just never did say anything while I was there, but I was there long enough to have heard something from them. I set mine to P25 auto. Was that the right one? Or should it have been the P25 manual setting. Maybe there is a control channel missing. Maybe they changed their minds again and went to some other type of communication. Ha. Whatever it is you must have the same problem i have with it.

Well i think i may have found something here. N4YEK maybe you can chime in here.

According to the FCC website ULS License - Trunked Public Safety 700 MHz License - WQNM526 - PIGEON FORGE, CITY OF - Frequencies Summary, 770.33125a does not belong to the pigeon forge public safety trunking system. It shows only 3 repeaters

Instead it appears to belong to the Tennessee Valley Regional Telecommunications System ULS License - Trunked Public Safety 700 MHz License - WQLE426 - TENNESSEE, STATE OF (TVRTS) - Frequencies Summary down in Polk Co.

Just putting in the frequencies in digital mode on my 996T I found 769.80625 as the control channel and digital traffic on 770.33125.
I was unable to hear any traffic on the 850 LTR at all.

I didnt think to try it like that when i was there. I didnt program the 850 mhz ones in so i dont know about that one although it is supposed to be the same thing as the Land air systems trunk.

Are you sure 770.33125 was pigeon forge pd or something else. N4YEK would know for sure when he gets on here.

This is how i programmed the system in my Pro-106 with ARC500. Dont know if this is right now.

New Trunk System Object:
System Type: P25 auto
Alpha Tage: PigForgePubSafty
Frequencies: 1: 769.806250, 2: 770.331250, 3: 770.343750, 4: 771.406250
MultiSite: Off (it auto fills that)
TTables: Default (it auto fills that)
Fleetmap: Type 2 (it auto fills that)
CheckAllCC: No (it auo filled that too)

New Talkgroup Object:
Talkgroup ID: 2977
ScanLists: 5
TrunkSystem: PigForgePubSafty
TType: Group (it auto filled that)

Does that sound about the way you have yours programmed in?
If 770.33125 is a control channel on some other system and it picks up 2 control channels on the same system, it may not know what to do with itself, im guessing.
