A member has submitted their extensive work on a project to verify sites and data for the new WA-DOT P25 system. I'll be updating the sites over the course of this week.

I am going to keep the older LTR system listed until such time as active Washington state listeners can verify that the sites have gone quiet. I am not able to deprecate parts of the system. As such when it is confident that the old system is no longer used, I will make it inactive.

Thanks for everyone's efforts.

Randy FYI if the changes are related to the control channels swapping (from primary to secondary and vice versa) then I'd suggest ignoring them for now since the Harris P25 systems rotate control channels frequently.

Thanks for the advice. This is a complete list of actual locations, lat/lon of sites, NACs, neighbor sites, etc. I had some sites listed with just a county name (from area heard) but this contributor actually researched locations and data. It will nicely round out the information and expand the DB listing.

OK from my understanding of it you can now monitor the Washington State Dept of transportation, on 700 megs P2
I have the 996P2 scanner, and live in the Everett Lake Stevens area what would be a good sight to program into the scanner? I was looking at the king sight I did program the Everett sight into the scanner but not have heard anything yet

WSDOT is in the process of migrating over to this system. Activity will be erratic.
For Lake Stevens the closest sites would be Everett and King Lake.

Uh... why not just program in all of the sites and see which sites you can hear... then lockout the sites you can't.

Also, WSDOT (at least so far) is mostly a M-F operation and not much activity overnight.
