Re: How do I monitor this???

See if you can tune to it first, before wasting your time configuring for something out of your range. I was mostly concerned about learning how to set this up just for practice and getting it to work, but yes if I find another system I can just monitor the control channel for activity before typin...

Re: How do I monitor this???

OK this time successful setting system up...I was able to connect but signal dropped a few times. But I can receive this system perfectly on the Johnston RI site. I just wanted to see if I could work the Fall River one just as learning experience. Increasing gain didnt help. But at least I understan...

Re: How do I monitor this???

IGNORE the Radius information from RR, it is only an approximation and all depends on your actual set-up [YMMV] I can hear systems well beyond the RR approximations and then there are others I can not hear at all and I am within that radius Also you have gone too deep right away, back out to [back ...

Re: How do I monitor this???

Didn't DSD+ come with many of the major systems already defaulted ? DSD+ might be already defaulted to RECOGNIZE the systems but manually entering in the data correctly to the SITE LOADER, NETWORKS & FREQUENCIES files is what is confusing. I mean once I know exactly how to lay it out I'm fine. But ...

Re: How do I monitor this???

The easiest thing to do is to simply type the frequency into the FMPx portion of DSDPlus and make notes unless you plan on monitoring them 24/7, identifying users, etc. In DSDPlus, there is a feature called Pseudo Network IDs. It allows you to keep all the conventional channels separate as most use...

Re: How do I monitor this???

OK Thank you. So if I wanted to monitor a single DMR frequency as opposed to a trunked DMR system, how would I enter the text for this in DSDPlus? Would it be: DMR, 1, 1, 300, 461.6750, 0.0,1 I want to make a list of all interesting individual DMR freqs. Then when I get the DMR upgrade for radio I w...

How do I monitor this???

Looking thru the "Hospital" frequencies (and some others) I come across these weird "tone" types that I don't understand....they are not CTCSS or DPL so what are they? Is this a stand alone NXDN or DMR channel? This is from the Roger Williams medical center. Operations 461.6750 R C01 SL:1 TG:300 - O...

help with monitoring (via sdr) NXDN voice freqs

I recently set up a new "dongle (rtl-sdr v3) and using SDR# and DSD Plus. All new to me. I was able to get it all mostly working. So far I have been just searching the 450mhz band and found a few strong NXDN Data channels. It just endlessly streams "SYNC+ NXDN48 TB CCDATA". So control channels dont ...
