This system has been lurking about central Austin for a while.

Unidentified Federal (Austin) Trunking System, Austin, Texas - Scanner Frequencies

It is currently active as Site 13 on control channel 2 (407.075 Mhz).

What's new (to me) is it is advertising two neighboring sites.

Site 11 and site 12 - both with active control channel on LCN 1.

Frequencies unknown. I did not find anything in the 400 Mhz Federal range - but they're out there somewhere ...

Since the VA over in Temple uses EDACS, has anyone thought it might be them? With additional coverage to some Austin VA facilities? Like the Outpatient Center ? :confused:

It's north of the river, west of the airport, south and/or east of the Capitol. Signal covers central Austin quite well. Most federal offices fit inside that box. Could be be VA, IRS, USGS, GSA, or who knows what.

I never hear any traffic but I don't monitor the system during business hours. Getting some voice would help ID the system.

There are several VA related offices in central Austin.
