Re: Westfield State Maintenance

I went mobile with DSDPlus and monitored several conversations. I only logged the 16777215 TG. If that is how the system is programmed, you could put any talkgroup into a 2 way radio and it would hear the conversation. The individual mobiles/portables have individual IDs so I can't figure out why th...

Re: Westfield State Maintenance

<t>OK, sorry, my error, I stand corrected. I thought the DMR addressing was the same as the P25 addressing where there is a limit for TGs that is 65535 (FFFF) talkgroups. I went into the ETSI DMR Standard document and they allow the same number of talkgroups as radios, >16 million. TGID 16777215 is ...

Re: Westfield State Maintenance

No, nowhere did I say that was the talkgroup. All I said was that 16777215 is not a valid DMR talkgroup.

Re: Westfield State Maintenance

That is most likely the radio ID and not the TGID. I believe that the limit for talkgroups on a DMR system is the same as a P25 system. 65536 (FFFF) talkgroups and 16777215 (FFFFFF) users. It is actually a few less because the standards have a few TGs and RIDs reserved for special functions. One of ...

Re: Marcus Communications Tier III

Pretty sure it is a Uniden firmware bug related to it being a Hytera system. It seems like it is pretty much a back burner issue until Paul gets back to work at Uniden.

If you have a box of non scanner cables around, you may find you already have one. My Garmin GPS units all use them, I have a small MP3 player that uses it. I think there are others around my house too.

Hartford FD Dispatch appeared today on the Connecticut Land Mobile Radio Network (CLMRN)(aka CT SW P25 system). They are using a P25 Talkgroup in Phase 2 mode and are only on the Hartford site. Since this talkgroup doesn't follow the cities and town Talkgroup convention, I would suspect it is a patc...
