You might have the hill on Benham St where Sacred Heart is located along with Sleeping Giant working against you, especially if you are down low near Lane Street.
the new system is only 20 watts and the map shows a radius of 5 miles. So I wouldn't expect too much.

I haven’t monitored much as I used to. I have an analog trunking scanner so when I heard they switched over it didn’t get me excited to turn it back on.
BUT I decided to turn it on today while I had a bunch of errands to run. I only monitor FD’s around the area. Wallingford FD is still broadcasting in the VHF channel. Not sure how long it wall last. They are still a combination department. Will the volunteers switch to the indication G4/5 series pagers? Or will they continue to simulcast on VHF, or text (cell phone) paging?

FD up and running on the new system TG 201
Wallingford FD is not using the new TRS yet. Currently they have a voter that is simulcasting the conventional FD channels with the new FD talkgroups. That is why the transmissions don't have any RIDs.

HMMMM I heard a FD Disp this morning on the new system with TG 201. I have not heard anything on the old system all day
What do you mean a voter simulcasting. A voter is a piece of equipment that listens to multiple receivers, determines the best audio and sends it down to the console and to the transmitter on a repeater system.

For those of you unaware they have been patching Wallingford's P25 system with CLMRN, pushing their Police Ops Talkgroup to random TG's on CLMRN. They are patching through CLMRN Site 29 Troop I Simulcast. You can see Wallingford's System ID and CC in my DSDPlus log...

It isn't something that can be monitored reliably by scanners. I have logged 41 different temporary talkgroups for the one Wallingford PD group.
