Hey, isn't it about that time of the year to start asking almost daily when the Southern Nevada Scanner Book will be available at AES?

O.K. then I'll start it off for this year:

Anybody know when the Southern Nevada Scanner Book will be available at AES?

I picked one up in December at AES or do you mean the 2010 edition ?

I'm speaking of the 2010 edition... I've had the 2009 book since last February.

Presumably they should be able to sell it for a little bit less this year. After all, the LVMPD section should only take up a short paragraph this year instead of several pages.

It should go something like this...
HOW TO MONITOR THE LVMPD:
YOU DON'T!

First I appreciate the effortt Cat Com has put in to this publication. Believe me, I know how long it takes to create then maintain a database of frequencies, talk groups…..

The price they charge for the publication is fair, probably just covers the cost of printing and handling.

Here is my wish list for the 2010 edition:

• Clean up the database, some of the entries are stale; some of the tags are confusing. I thought each fire Zone Talk Group assignments follow a set pattern? Zone 1 Tac 101, 110, 111 Zone 2 Tac 201, 210, 211…..

• Clarify if a Talk Group listed as Mutual Channel is an actual Mutual channel or a Patch Channel

• List or map which Fire Zone covers which part of the city / county similar to the LVMPD maps.

• System Frequencies for Trunk Systems. Could it mention which site covers which area of the city / county example: Page 18 lists SNACC system frequencies for 10 plus sites. Some of the site names are obvious. St. George, Oatman, but. Upper Black Mountain, what area of the county does this site cover, is it in Henderson?

Once my scanner monitor station including Trunker and Etrunker is fully operational. I would be more than happy to help contributing to the publication.

Spoke to AES today and they don't know when the new issue will be out. Probably not soon as they just put out a revised edition when the rebanding happened to the snacc. I might be alone with this idea but I'm happy to wait until the book is made up of many new changes and freqs, I have the last three editions and they don't change all that much. Southern Nevada scanners should be submitting freqs and info to them to warrant a revision. Right now the only big changes in the county are the Metro Opensky stuff (useless to us) and the new casino/hotels like City Center.
While we're on the subject for new freqs, does anyone have the freq or system to ASIG aircraft fuelers? Particularly the west side operations (Signature/EG&G/Executive/Helicopters)???

City Center

What is City center using?
Not sure what they use probably similar to MGM, sorry If my comment was misunderstood. I was trying to say the book would only have new hotels and City Center is the newest in town. Frankly hotel monitoring to me is boring, slot techs and room service and security patrols.
I think the book folks should have more time than one year to comprise a new edition. Maybe back in the boom days of development freqs were popping up all over but construction in town is snail speed now not many new companies with radios. I guess it all lies on what people want to hear. The book already covers the favorites ( Police, Fire, State Police, Aircraft, Military, Federal, Hotels, local businesses etc.) Expanding from there? Digital? NNSA/TSA/Hoover Dam that's it for Clark County that any digital scanner will find. There are Edacs Provoice systems like Groom Lake but they can't be scanned. What did I miss? Del Taco? Sorry, I didn't buy a $500.00 scanner to hear taco orders. Maybe the movie productions Hangover 2 or TV shows like Pawn Pro's during taping would be cool? I can only wish for Hangover 2 that was such a funny movie!! Maybe the girls should have a go at it for Hangover 2?
Anyway back to scanning, the rest is Ham radio stuff, weather radio, maybe sat comms but that is something I haven't even looked at yet.
Somebody will discover City Center's system soon they always do.

I cannot locate the thread now, but I recall City Center reportedly using Mototurbo. When I stayed in town for a week in December that's what I heard on 463.700 MHz.

Their license has emissions of 7K60FXE, 7K60FXD in use:
