Does anybody know if this talkgroup will soon be used full time by Galesburg police?
I've only heard it used once in 13' and once in jan, this year, so I think they stick to their city's repeater most of the time. 73, n9zas

I used to hear the SPD on the Peoria County tower and I have not heard them in a long time on our tower. Does anybody know what tower they are using?

TG 4368

I was monitoring the Mattoon site and around 7:45 PM on a Sunday Evening I noticed some talking on TG 4368 with unit IDs of 654508 and 654501. I searched the database and came up nothing. Anyone have an idea who this may be?

All indications point toward this being Ameren. The Radio ID (RID) list at the Radio Reference STARCOM21 Wiki STARCOM21 Statewide Illinois P25 - The RadioReference Wiki shows that 654xxx RIDs are used by Ameren, and the RR SC21 talkgroup database lists TGs 4176-4360 being used by them as well.

The tower used is based on the location of the transmitting and receiving units. If a system radio is tuned to the Springfield talkgroup(s) in the Peoria area then it will go out over the Peoria sites. No Springfield units in the area then won't hear it there. A system radio actually has to be affiliated with a site for that site to hear the traffic.

Yeah, the PD but Fire is in the clear. It was strange to me, I,m new to this digital stuff. I just have the Fire Dept in one scanlist. When the tones went off for the storm warning I was surprised to see that TG, its not listed in the DB.

Oh I never checked that I'd 1585 you posted above against the database. Maybe if your sure on who it is submitting it wouldn't be a bad idea.
