Can't hear Escondido police or Fire anymore

Post by n6dcr » Tue Oct 01, 2019 8:07 am

I've been reading all the post for a couple days, still can't hear Escondido police or Fire anymore, I've switched over to the new site according to the calendar showing they have been cut over, anything maybe I'm missing? Thanks, Alan

Make sure you are using the P25 talkgroups IDs for the RCS NextGen system.

P25 TG: 2301 - ESCPDISP1 - Police Dispatch 1 - Escondido

P25 TG: 1367 - ESC 5A DISP - Dispatch 5A - Fire Escondido Zone

Motorola Type II SmartZone Talkgroup to P25 Talkgroup
To convert the talk groups from the old system to the new system, Divide the old SmartZone talkgroup decimal number by 16 to get the P25 talk group number.
(In reverse, to get the SmartZone talk group from the P25 talk group, multiple the P25 talk group number by 16.)

Converted talkgroup list on the bottom of the first post on this other page)

Make sure you changed it to "P25 Auto" type in the Win500 software.
and update the talkgroups to the new talkgroup numbers for the P25 RCS NextGen System.

I have been scanning since 72. I have programmed many scanners including my pro-106 many times. I cant figure out what i'm doing wrong. I have tried the win app. I have tried to manually reprogram it but I cant get San Diego RCS to work, I would pay someone to program or walk me through it. I am getting nothing but south zone. I have entered the north zone freqs but I keep getting south. Anybody in SD county HELP!

It would be the same way if you setup Camp Pendleton P25 system or the SD Navy P25 system or any other 98% P25 systems.

Feel free to send me your Win500 programming file for RCS NextGen and I can take a look at it.
