I just want to verify that I need the Fast Lane version. Plus version is older but free. Fast Lane is a paid version.
Yes there is a fee for fastlane well worth the fee and it works great . Just follow directions on website.

Brooke EMS is fully switched to SIRN, other agencies are slowing moving over but this full switch over won’t be for a while yet.

BROOKE COUNTY COMMISSION MEETING
AGENDA
DATE:SEPTEMBER 15, 2020
APPROVAL OF THE MINUTES FROM SEPTEMBER 8, 2020.

Communications Proposal: Partnership Agreement with Ohio County Commission for joint use of P-25 Motorola Digital Master Switch TrunkedRadio System Site for Statewide Interoperable Public Safety Communications.

Joint use: Would that mean that Brooke Co and Ohio Co will be sharing the same tower? Would this be on the existing Brooke Tower?

@n8jsw shared this link with me about Brooke and Ohio county's.


Brooke, Ohio counties work together on radio system
I now have DSD plus working. The above may explain why I'm also getting radio calls from Ohio and Marshall CO.

2020/09/19 23:40:22 Registration; RID=218207 TG=2181 [[ClearviewVFD] Clearview Fire] ACCEPT
2020/09/19 23:40:54 Registration; RID=222198 TG=2207 [[BrookeCo SO] Sheriff Dispatch] ACCEPT
2020/09/19 23:46:10 Group call; TG=2205 [[BrookeCo EMS] EMS Dispatch] RID=222194 Ch=460.2375 5s
2020/09/19 23:46:33 Group call; TG=9003 [[WVSP Trp 1 D3 Dp] Troop 1 District 3 Dispatch Moundsville] RID=98418 Ch=453.1875 3s


I'll need to find out how to block the unwanted calls. I also need to stop a bunch of log files. This software logs everything including a .wav file for each radio call. That's going to quickly fill up the hard drive!

You are always going to see associations with other radios because Brooke is peered to Ohio/Marshall county. I am sure there is a way to lockout unwanted logs and wave files, but I am unsure how to do it.

Are you using the free version or are you using DSDPlus FastLane ($25 for lifetime subscription)? I know with DSDPlus FastLane, you ccan simply left- or right-click on the number under "Pri", in the channel activity window, and can set the priority of the talkgroup. If you click it enough times, you will lock out the talkgroup. I don't remember whether you can do that on the free version.

You can always edit your DSDPlus.groups file with a text editor (notepad for instance), find the talkgroups that you want to lock out, and change their status to locked out and save the file.

If you look at DSDPlus.Groups with a text file, you will see something like the following (which is just an example and is NOT SIRN):

P25, BEE00.348, 53126, 50, Normal, 0, 0000/00/00 0:00, "INDIAN RIVER JCF (SUPT)"
P25, BEE00.348, 53131, 50, Normal, 1, 2018/10/15 12:29, ""
P25, BEE00.348, 53135, 50, L/O, 13257, 2020/02/14 8:10, "INDIAN RIVER JCF"
P25, BEE00.348, 53139, 50, Normal, 107, 2018/10/16 11:28, "INDIAN RIVER JCF - MAINT"
P25, BEE00.348, 53143, 50, Normal, 0, 0000/00/00 0:00, "INDIAN RIVER JCF (MED)"

Notice that in the fifth field, instead of "Normal between the commas you see L/O

So if you need to lock out talk groups in bulk, it's easier to do it via DSDPlus.Groups editing. Otherwise, do it from the Channel Activity window.

Mike,

Thanks for the info!
I'm using the fastlane version. I've locked out some unwanted talkgroups. Seems to be working good. I'm not very happy with the audio quality. It's not as good as my analog scanner. I may need to do some more tweaking. Possibly this is normal for digital channels.

If anyone wants to listen I have a test feed running at http://mesterhome.com:5000 .

This is a low traffic feed. Sometimes several minutes between calls. It's been a little busier this weekend. Several "testting" channels have been active.

For those excited about listening to public transit ( lol ) Bearcom will be installing new radios in our (ovrta) buses in the coming weeks for us to finally be off the old Wheeling system and onto the SIRN system. Im sure you guys are tingling with excitement!! lol
LOL. I'll listen if you'll belt out a tune over the radio :)
Well , Bearcom has installed 6 new radios so far on our new buses. The rest of the fleet should be very very soon. Unfortunately Mike I don't drive anymore ! I have since went into the garage to work on them rather than drive them. But I'll sing a tune for ya if I can! :)

I'm stoked Dan.... Can't wait!.... I have a feeling it will be on TG 2172 cuz I heard them doing a bunch of testing on that channel last week... Yea, I sure hope working on busses pays more than driving them lol!

Great job. They must have the power at very low watts.
What is the status on the Weirton Tower? I'm in North Fayette PA, just about 15 miles away, and other than early testing when I had full bars I'm not getting anything from the CC channel. Are they still working on the system? Don't have any issues picking up the Beaver Falls tower and easily get MARCS Jefferson Co Ohio.
