To be fair, their analog repeater isn't the best, it suffers from a lot of interference from UIC. I'm sure they don't notice it on campus on the portables but it's definitely noticeable with a decent antenna.Speaking of active* transmissions. It was reported the other day by Awesomeman92 that Harper College Security here in Palatine IL was (testing) Starcom21 talkgroups/radios. I am right by there and usually have trouble hearing their analog stuff on the horrible Whistler WS1080. The volume is always too low for Harper. They're doing some (regular) traffic tonight... usual stuff, checking to make sure folks on site are supposed to be there. Loud and clear. 34806-34808
Radio IDs were 82014, 82016 and 409866 showing on my Unication G5 pager.
RID 189319 is a portable being used by Southwest Central.Hearing Countryside PD on TGID 34499 (Phase-2/Countryside-Local), being dispatched by Southwest Central (RID 189319). They have been having issues on both Net-7 and Net-9 with Southwest Central, so my thinking this is a temporary solution to a problem as LTACC is supposed to take over dispatching in the near future.
Just to add, most Countryside units are in the 1893xx series, but did see a supervisor come up with 189201. 4900 series units.
Hey guys, Law enforcement does monitor these forums also.... seems you guys let them understand they had a security breach with ENC traffic patched to the non secure VHF side! I'm sure they appreciated the heads up to correct this oversight...
As I've learned over the years, those radio folks know exactly what was going on and it doesn't take us to enlighten them.Hey guys, Law enforcement does monitor these forums also.... seems you guys let them understand they had a security breach with ENC traffic patched to the non secure VHF side!

(sometimes certain things are best in a private message or just not revealed)
What site number is that showing up as? Could you share the active frequencies for that site? Are you hearing any local talkgroups that aren't listed in the Fulton County subcategory of the Radio Refererence SC21 database page?The Canton site in Fulton County is up and running. Canton PD is using it. Fulton County Sheriff is using STARCOM even though all of the new sites are not on the air yet.
