Its not about fastest its about tracking talkgroups and not missing traffic by just scanning voice channels.
The fastest way is to buy a Premium Subscription buy the software and program the scanner direct from RR Database.

The speed comes from cc only and only program the sites you need. The more freqs the slower the scan.

Seeing that Middle TN build outs for added channel capacity and additional sites for City of LaVergne and MTEMC (Middle Tennessee Electric Membership Cooperative) is progressing.

Added 700 MHz channels to Antioch site under the LaVergne license (WREB540 (LAVERGNE, CITY OF) FCC Callsign Details) are now live as if Friday. Added 800 MHz channels to Smyrna site (WRDT998 (LAVERGNE, CITY OF) FCC Callsign Details) not yet seen active. If you have a vested interest in LaVergne, keep on eye on both Antioch and Smyrna sites. Have not seen new radio IDs or groups yet. Interesting to see as Antioch hosts TDMA traffic like most TACN sites, however never seen TDMA on Smyrna, maybe that will change soon. Will be curious to see LaVergne goes TDMA and/or encrypted.

Multiple new 800 MHz sites showing P25 test pattern traffic as of Friday. These are the added sites for MTEMC loading and coverage. A number of licenses for new sites from both TACN and MTEMC providing frequencies, plus some added frequencies to existing sites.

Expecting the following new TACN sites, once sites go live, will be able to confirm and submit site numbers and related details...

WRDC941 (Middle Tennessee Electric Membership Cooperative) FCC Callsign Details (MTEMC)
WRDI964 (TENNESSEE, STATE OF (TACN)) FCC Callsign Details (TACN)
WRDT588 (MIDDLE TENNESSEE ELECTRIC MEMBERSHIP CORPORATION) FCC Callsign Details (MTEMC)
WRDT590 (MIDDLE TENNESSEE ELECTRIC MEMBERSHIP CORPORATION) FCC Callsign Details (MTEMC)

NEW - Rutherford, Readyville
851.90000 852.40000 855.41250 856.28750 857.81250 860.33750

NEW - Williamson, Thompson Station
851.48750 851.98750 854.91250 856.86250 858.33750

NEW - Williamson, Franklin (Cool Springs)
851.77500 853.17500 855.16250 855.93750 858.28750

NEW - Wilson, Watertown (still not enough licensed to be a real P25 trunking site)
851.63750 855.687500 859.38750

NEW - Cannon, Woodbury (Short Mountain) - adding 800 MHz
851.53750 854.81250 857.81250 858.31250 860.86250

Expecting the following TACN sites adding channels (two new 800 MHz channels to each site)...

WRDS672 (MIDDLE TENNESSEE ELECTRIC MEMBERSHIP CORPORATION) FCC Callsign Details (MTEMC)

ADD - Davidson, Antioch
ADD - Williamson, Fairview
ADD - Maury, Columbia
ADD - Rutherford, Murfreesboro
ADD - Wilson, Gladeville

MTEMC also has a new conventional 800 MHz license for P25 capable repeaters in Rutherford, Williamson, Cannon and Wilson counties...


Keep on eye on Radio IDs 4111xxx and Group IDs 48150-48157, currently with limited FDMA activity for MTEMC.

I picked up TG 10053 the other day when there was a large brush fire near the airport and national guard base in Alcoa. Two guys talking about coordinating with fire and police. My guess is EMA but not sure.

That talkgroup is in the Blount County range.
My guess would be maybe Blount County EMA? But I didn't hear the traffic so I am just guessing.

Just had an encounter with TG 1501 on the North Bradley Tower, The DB has it labeled as I-PSAP 1 (Chattanooga Area), Under the Interop category. Around 5:45 PM a tone went out on the channel and a station keyed up and started calling the following Tennessee and Georgia Counties 911 Centers, In Tennessee: Megis, Rhea, Polk, Bradley, Hamilton. In Georgia: Whitfield, Dade, Catoosa, Walker. Does anyone know what this calling is and why.

PSAP's like any other TG can be patched. What your hearing is where they patched several of the PSAP TG's and ran the NET check in on a Super Group made of the combined patched TG's. You will hear this commonly now unless an individual PSAP TG is in use and busy on an event. NET checks are usually weekly, or monthly, or at the beginning of an event.
