Digital Decoding is a broad question, if you are asking if your scanner can work with DMR (AKA MotoTRBO) then your answer is no, it can't by itself. You will need a Scanner with a discriminator tap or a discriminator output, and DSD program. Or in some cases it may be possible to monitor with a DMR radio (ensure it is set up monitor only).
They are not using the TACN system they are using Motorola MOTOTRBO this form of digital is not trackable by any scanner on the market today. AOR has a $1000.00 scanner that all the bugs are not out of the last time I read. But you can do SDR SOFTWARE DEFINED RADIO and a Digital encoder and a computer and listen to them. But you BCD436HP will not work.
Paris Henry County is no problem works great on the other hand Carroll County McKenzie Huntington are all moving to a trunking system version of Tipton County. TACN works great in Henry County using Paris Dover Gleason and McEwen sites. With Ripley Trenton Jackson working and Hornbeak and UT Martin coming online soon.
I have the handheld working and a GPS for it now. I also have my USB radio with DVD+ and SDR# working listening to TC Dispatch. I am showing it on 460.3625. Does that sound right or is my receiver off a little?
Anyone know where I can find DSD1.7 Windows binary? I am trying to get SDR# working with a decoder that has good clear audio. DSDPlus works but I can't seem to get it cleaned up. Any help would be appreciated. I want to contribute to the information and have figured SDR# out pretty well.
Also, any SDR Play users out there? It is more expensive than the USB dongles but supposed to be a lot better.
Planning for a trip to Tipton Co to see an old friend.
Trying to assemble my scanner list for the trip but after
reviewing the FCC license, and the list in the RRDB, there
seems to be differences between the two. Perhaps someone can
clear it up for me.
The trunking license, WPXE865 was the only trunking
one I could locate in the files. Some frequencies are
licensed for 7K60FXD, and others are only 11K2F3E
Would appreciate if someone would help me understand
what to program. Are they actually using NFM frequencies for TRBO
or does the database need some work.
Mixed bag system using both modes depending on the
frequency ? Any help would be appreciated....
..11K2F3E 460.2250, 460.3750
I can't speak for others but I listen to police dispatch 460.160 (I don't see that in your list). From the different locations I hear I believe it to be TC Sheriff dispatch. I have not 'Ventured out' too much from there. I am using a discone antenna in the attic so not the best setup for long range scanning. I hope to get an outside pole with several antennas up this fall when the heat is not too bad. Let me know if there is something special you want me to listen for.
Started monitoring single frequency and am hearing traffic on 460.240 NFM in the clear. Haven't figured out who it is yet. It is a LE Dispatch. Getting a better antenna for the SDR Thursday. I will program it into my 996 tomorrow and start monitoring as I can.
Ok.. Sorry for the previous stupidity. I am a novice learning the hard way.
I calibrated the SDR with SDR# and have the freq.'s in the database programmed in. I can decode the TC Digital now.
I would like to set up a trunk system in SDR# to follow the TC TRBO System freq.'s but will need some help. I have several SDR USB sticks and a Quad core Win7 box to run it on. Anyone willing to help with this? I can help with system info for the RR database if I can get some help.
I have set up Easy Scanner to work with SDR# set up with the TC Freqs. It is working very well. Not trunking but does what I need. I know nothing about setting up SDR# with a trunking plugin and MAY look into it next.
I think with the second dongle I will set up a TC Fire dispatch scanner.
Question: Is Easy Scanner the best simple scanner for SDR# or is there a better one that will scan a little faster?
As a tip: I did put the DSD+ Process (in the Task Manager) on 'Real Time' to give it the priority it needed to help with some break ups and garbling. It solved some issues.
