• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Im sorry no one has responded. I have no info on the Waterbury system either and would. I suggest you program in the frequencies, leave to Trunk open and listen in with a note pad and jot down the IDs that appear and make a note of what they are talking about. And then become the sole contributor of the Waterbury Trunk system to RR and challenge anyone to make corrections.

This is were the fun comes in.

Best of Luck

Chris

Waterbury does have IDs according to the Scanmaster book (2005) but it uses a Mulrinet Trunking system and it is pointed out that it is NOT TRACKABLE BY ANY CURRENT SCANNER. This was also pointed out to my by a sales rep at Lentini's in Newington who sold my buddy what appears to be an awsome Austin Spectra mobile antenna that was pricey but performed surprisingly excellent and I may get one myself soon.

The LTR Multinet has IDs to track but CANNOT be trunktracked by any scanner available today. You can listed to all the system traffic in conventional mode but cannot trunktrack it. The only way to follow a single talkgroup without having a programmed EFJ radio is to use the LTRTrunker and 2 scanner method.

The talkgroup info that appears in the Scannermaster is correct and was current at the time of publishing. There are many more talkgroups (DPW, city services, etc) but there was a space issue for the book.
