Does anyone know of a TAC frequency for District 43 (Seymour, IN) State police? RR lists an 800mhz TAC frequency for Dist 42 and Dist 52 so was wondering if anyone knows of or what the State Police would use for a TAC frequency?

The Tac frequncies you see listed are the NPSPAC conventional channels designators. The SAFE-T system uses the respective ISP district operations channels and the district mutual aid channels for "Tac".
The NPSPAC channels are not part of the SAFE-T system but a conventional backup and interoperability channels that are used along with the trunked channels.

Thanks KC9AOM for the backup and letting the poster who asked the question know about this.Might not be a bad idea to keep the NPSPAC channels in your scanner.

Are you referring to these frequencies:
855.2375 800 mhz talkaround
866.5125 TAC 1
867.0125 TAC 2
867.5125 TAC 3
868.0125 TAC 4
This is what RR currently lists as Conventional State Police frequencies Are these P25 or FM....just would like to know if these are used and how and what for? Curiosity killed the scanner hobbyist you might say....lol
What does NPSPAC acronym stand for?
I found it:
Frequency (Mobile/Base Station in MHz)
CALL 601 821.0125/866.0125
TAC1 639 821.5125/866.5125
TAC2 677 822.0125/867.0125
TAC3 715 822.5125/867.5125
TAC4 753 823.0125/868.0125
National Public Safety Planning Advisor Committee
NPSPAC mutual aid channels are available statewide to increase interoperability. These consist of one call in channel and four tactical channels between 820-824 MHz. The NPSPAC channels allow first responders from 800MHz systems to deploy to an area where there is an 800MHz system and switch their radio to the NPSPAC mutual aid channel. These channels exist nationwide and have national procedures governing use.

del1964 these are the same ones you have listed. These will actually change when the SAFE-T and 800 mhz channels will be rebanded. They will be 15 mhz lower to comply with the national standards.

After rebanding here is the plan.

8CALL90 851.0125 R 806.0125 M PL 156.7
8TAC91 851.5125 R 806.5125 M PL 156.7
8TAC92 852.0125 R 807.0125 M PL 156.7
8TAC83 852.5125 R 807.5125 M PL 156.7
8TAC94 853.0125 R 808.0125 M PL 156.7

These are all conventional FM frequencies.

Thank you guys very much. This is a learning experience for sure. So back to my original question.....The ISP uses OPS channels and MA channels on SAFET for "TAC" talk. And I have noticed that. Just was checking to see if anyone with more experience scanning Indiana knew of any other possible communication means in use.

I've heard it used a few times when isp was doing a superload escort. They would use it between units to coordinate intersection/road blocks. Also heard a local fd use it for inside a building when they had a dead spot with safet. (they actually said go to nps direct).

I think I heard it used with air care as well, not sure though.

Also this is fm analog, not p25.

I'm sorry, which frequency(ies) are you referring to here? Those TAC frequencies 1-4? or the 855.2375? Or do you recall which one(s) specifically?

the TAC freqs were the ones being used by the superload escort. I wasn't able to catch which one was used by the fd when they "went direct".

Ok...thanks. Those superloads go up and down I65 quite a bit. I travel I65 every day between exit 50 and exit 76 so I'll let you know if I ever hear anything on those freq's and what freq's they use.

In my area (District 24) ISP uses Ops channels all the time to set up speed traps, and to talk to each other rather than relaying through dispatch. There has only been a few times I've heard them use the NPSPAC Freqs.

Can someone help me with programming these NPSPAC freqs into the bcd 396t? can I program these on the seymour site? Thanks (optimistic rookie)

No, they need to go into a conventional group, not in with trunked system frequencies.

Seymour doesn't have one, don't know why...
map link here to all of them
http://www.in.gov/ipsc/images/NPSPAC.png

And looking at it they've made some change to go along with dispatching changes among ISP districts,
and included Ohio in the Southeast..
