The reason I ask is with no system controller, what benefit would the radios get by knowing the current LCN and not the LCN of the new rest channel they're supposed to move to? Or maybe the FLCO=4 steers the idle radios to the new rest channel LCN and the CSBK=62 has the current channel LCN buried in it somewhere?Capacity Plus Operation
- All new voice calls always start on the Rest Channel
- When a call starts, the Rest Channel:
- Selects an idle channel to be the new Rest Channel
- Informs all idle subscribers to move to it
- Converts itself to a traffic channel
- Begins repeating audio to radios
- When a call ends on the channel:
- The repeater informs the radios of the new Rest Channel
- The radios then move to those new channels
Hey there, I believe that 453.0125 is a mototrbo "Connect Plus" control channel. Unlike Capacity Plus, Connect Plus has a dedicated control channel. I have been meaning to investigate the other frequencies on the associated license to see if any voice traffic appears but I haven't had the time yet.I'm monitoring the UCSD system using the freqs you posted earlier. I am able to decode the audio with DSD, and I'm looking at the data streams with that and DMR36.
I have also been monitoring the 453.0125, but have not decoded any audio, is that just a control channel or does audio "seldom" show up?
On the system I'm monitoring each frequency has a different colour code.Does the 'color code' have any bearing on anything with regards to CP? In other words, do all the frequencies in a CP system have to have the same color code (or vice versa, do they have to be different)?
All the frequencies in the system I have been monitoring have the same color code (1), and I have been operating under the assumption that, like the LTR area bit or DCC, it would be the same for every channel. I wonder if it can be set differently in CPS?Does the 'color code' have any bearing on anything with regards to CP? In other words, do all the frequencies in a CP system have to have the same color code (or vice versa, do they have to be different)?
Can you hear which one covers the other? By your description, if you hear the data bursts "on top of" the more distant voice grants, then the color code 8 system is the closer one. You can keep an eye out for other color code 8 frequencies, although if they use different color codes on each frequency like Ian has seen in the UK, you'll have to look for continuity of talkgroups and LCN assignments instead. I got lucky with all the same color code.Jay911 said:I now have "rest" pulses on 463.9375 on color code 8, and voice grants on the same frequency on color code 1. The voice grants are for groups and users that don't match the numbering on the trunk system. I get the feeling I'm hearing both the more distant of the two trunk systems, plus a local single-frequency repeater...?
