No problem...I thought it was ProVoice as well, but I was recently informed otherwise. One morning, we were getting some transmissions from an unknown source that was kicking our consoles into ProVoice mode. The problem is, we (HCSO) don't have ProVoice (as it was explained to me by the radio shop)...but the main controller was set-up to allow ProVoice even though the system doesn't actually have that module installed. This would prevent us from being able to hear the units out on the street. The night shift dispatchers had to use an analog HT and key up the radio to kick the system back into analog. Eventually, it was theorized there was a temperature inversion causing come ducting from the east coast of FL and we were picking up another agency that had the same control channel frequency that we do. The radio shop simply switched our system to an alternate and that cleared up the problem. They also went into the set-up of the controller and disabled the ProVoice option.Bolt21 said:I based my post on the info in the database and assumed that "ProVoice" meant the digital voice on this particular EDACS system. Sorry.
Whoa!!! Don't say that! They're on conventional (non-trunked) encrypted APCO-25 VHF frequencies. A Motorola system may be a better alternative, but TTPD's system is a scanner hobbyist's worst nightmare!n6tgk said:Too bad we can't scrap our MA/COM and just expand TTPD's system.
Sounds like CIS, a user of the Brodie Communications LTR Standard System found in the database. This is a trunked system, so scanning it conventionally won't work. It needs to be set up as an LTR system.kayleesdad said:Speaking of Hillsborough, what group is it that reports each "community contact" to "operations" by referencing area # and building # and time? It seems to be on a conventional system using 452.975, 452.7250 and a few others. can't seem to figure it out. Thanks,
Any word on when that's supposed to happen? Also, could the digital mode on the Hillsborough system possibly be AEGIS, since you advised that it's not ProVoice?n6tgk said:In other news, we're re-banding our radios down 15 MHz to cut down on interference from Nextel's network.
If you haven't done so, make sure your frequencies start on channel x01 and not on channel x00. Scanner will not trunk track properly if the freqs start on x00. If set up properly, you should start on x01 and end on x15.EMD91123 said:Anyone know how to program the Sheriff Dept's system in a PRO-95. I have programmed the sytem properly and set it to EDACS and the control channel on open mode. I still get nothing. But as I manually go through the channels I get transmissions.
