Re: Missouri programming

There are 700, 800, and VHF state systems in Greene. I don't see any locals using it, but I'm sure the state does.

FCC Updates Weekending 12/26/2020

Michael Martin
 

The latest FCC Updates have been posted to the web - FCCUpdates.com.

The following are some of the highlights for the week:

California – San Bernardino County has added 2 new sites to it’s existing 800 MHz P25 TRS.
Colorado – Walsh Ambulance Service (Baca County) has a new UHF DMR repeater.
District of Columbia – The DC Office of Unified Communications has a new site to their 700 MHz P25 TRS.
Florida – Collier County has added a new site to their 800 MHz Phase II TRS.
Michigan – Mead & Johnson Company (Ottawa County) has a new UHF DMR TRS.
Pennsylvania – Delaware County has added new UHF DMR frequencies (This is odd since they are MED splinter channels and are traditionally NFM).
South Carolina – Motorola Systems has established 3 new UHF DMR TRS (Chester, Lancaster & Pickens Counties).

Thanks to a new software I added to my Excel program (KuTools), I have been able to streamline my data entry and shave off about 2.5 hours worth of work!

Hoping everyone had a joyous holiday season and I’ll see you next year!

 

Stay Safe Out There!!!

Consolidated Frequency List, rear of Police Call

Keith
 

One thing I miss about Police Call is the Consolidated Frequency List in the back.
I found this online, I can't seem to get it uploaded to the files area for some reason.
I think it is dated around 2007? When they did the splinter channels and ReFarmed.

Lucky you in Michigan and scanning the MPSCS. The fun thing about the MPSCS is that you never know what is going to become active at a given site. That’s one thing I miss about Michigan. Merry Christmas everyone, and happy scanning.

My first scanner - late 1970s era - was an Ultra (made by a group of Ten-Tech guys in Nashville) that had 8 slots (VHF, of course). To get around Uniden's patents it used the FOURTH harmonic of the crystal rather than the third. Made it very interesting to order crystals.

I was listed in the back of Police Call in the major contributor section for a few years. My county had switched from VHF to UHF. I had listened to the scanner (RS Pro 2022 I still have somewhere) with a map and pinpointed each frequency transmission with the sector they were using it in throughout the county. I was sad when the author had passed and book ceased publication.

My first exposure to scanners happened with crystal scanners.  My dad had an 8-ch crystal scanner, and my grandfather had a 4-ch scanner.  Both scanners were desktop and my grandfather’s had the four yellow lights for the channel while my dad’s had red channel indicators.  On my dad’s scanner if you turned off all of the channels you would have a very faint purple glow.  His unit was VHF/UHF with separate antennas for VHF and UHF.

Police Call certainly preceded the internet and since things have so widely been published and available online, like many printed materials, it likely would not have survived regardless.  It’s difficult to argue with nearly daily updates online.  I certainly remembered them well and looked forward to each new issue as did many of you.

Not for crystals that I know of.  Interestingly enough, I was browsing a company page here in New York that has old crystals, and believe it or not I guess there are some crystal scanners that scan 800 MHz?  It doesn’t make any sense, but they are selling 800 MHz crystals.  An 800 MHz crystal scanner must be really unusual.

Re: 12 Days of a Scanner Christmas

well, a lot of fire/ems is still in the clear and around here they are simulcast on both their digital TG as well as their legacy VHF analog.  aviation is in the clear if your scanner can receive the airband.  railroads?  road maintenance?  admittedly there are fewer and fewer choices.  but rather than buy more crystals I'd look for a used vhf/uhf/airband (pref both airbands) scanner on ebay, eham.net, qrz.com, etc. for those services that are still on analog.
