Re: Westfield Barnes Airport Ops and DPW

I just ran them on DSDPlus
Barnes is using TG 40

Westfield DPW using LRRP for tracking
TG 30 - ? - seems to be shoveling crews, contractors perhaps
TG 31 - Westfield DPW Dispatch - trucks doing main roads

Re: Marcus Communications Tier III

without the use of CPS-P3 setting in DSDPlus, I was seeing talkgroups like 6684773 which made me wonder how someone could pick such a TG. The explanation I got from someone was it involved hex IDs and how the radios are addressed. Since the programmer of the system doesn't see what we look at, what ...

Re: Middletown CT P25 TRS

Testing continues and they have added a patch to, or simply a rebroadcast of, the 155.3700 MPD/PPD channel. That would be TGID 101. TGID 200 & 202 popped up today but I am too far away to get decent voice. TGID 911 & 912 are still in use for testing.

Re: CT new radio system activity

I think those were all added around the time of rebanding, 2012 perhaps? As you show, about half are secure talk groups. the others are clear. When the P25 upgrade is complete, it is looking like many of the interop talkgroups will be realigned to a new template. This is probably why there are some ...

Re: DMR use with public safety.

How about those municipalities that went to P25 while the surrounding towns were still analog? How about those who run encryption full time? How about those who's neighbors are on different bands? Some municipalities can't afford the cost of the P25 radios. Some need more talkpaths than the one per ...

Re: DSDPlus Fast Lane version 2.145 out, P25 P2 voice

As to the hardware: Depending on what you are looking to monitor, you can get by with one SDR for the non trunked digital formats. The computer requirements are not a lot but obviously, it will depend on what else you are doing with the machine. To do trunking, you need 2 dongles, the $25 ones will ...

Not much on the P25 system that is not on the analog right now. 2019 is supposed to be the changeover. May not be a lot to listen to after the change though as most users will have encryption at least available.

For now, they are on the EDACS. I would expect them to go to the Statewide 700/800 P25 system at some point. They are now led by a retired CSP guy so he knows the players.
