Bristol RI PD

So it was changed in the wiki, but apparently never mentioned here.

Bristol RI PD went to DMR 155.1300 CC 12 TG268.

Dispatch is in the clear, Cruisers are encrypted.

It appears that since you posted yesterday (September 11) Bristol, Rhode Island Police has gone fully encrypted on both the dispatch and mobile/portable ends. I've been monitoring and logging system DMR traffic on 155.1300 here in Fall River, MA with Whistler Scanner Control Software mated with my TRX-2 scanner and I haven't heard anything in the clear today. As you posted, Talkgroup 268 is active with Slot 1 Color 12. Dispatch appears to have Radio ID "1" and the mobiles/portables appear to have a 7-digit Radio ID formatted as 268xxxx.

FWIW I also picked up DMR Talkgroup 271 (? what that is) earlier today on 155.1300 but it was before I had my Whistler Scanner Control Software turned on so I can't confirm the Slot, Color or Radio IDs for that Talkgroup. The traffic that I heard on that Talkgroup 271 was also fully encrypted on both ends.

As an addendum to my post above, DMR Talkgroup 271 on 155.1300 is using Slot 2 Color 12 with the same Radio ID format as the main Talkgroup 268.

Talkgroup 271 appears to be a secondary Talkgroup/Channel with infrequent use compared to Talkgroup 268. There was fully encrypted radio traffic that I logged last evening between Radio ID 1 (assumed to be Dispatch) and Radio ID 2683032 (assumed to be a Mobile/Portable) that started on Talkgroup 268 and then the same two Radio IDs immediately switched over to Talkgroup 271.
