No Longer receiving any SD Sheriff's TGs

Post by blastdad » Sat Oct 26, 2019 3:36 pm

About a week ago I noticed I'm no longer hearing Sheriff's dispatch or any activity from them, I have a BC396XT, all other TGs are still good, Has anything changed. Is Sheriff's encrypted

All input is appreciated

Thanks

Jim

Sheriff and others are on the new RCS NextGen P25 system.

Yes, the 396XT will receive all Phase I talkgroups. About 97% of the radio traffic on the new system.

(It won’t decode the talkgroups using Phase II like those Poway and Vista school buses talkgroups)
Plus the other talkgroups with less radios on them might use Phase II mode. Such as Patrol Tac, Inquiry, etc...

NextGen stuff is slowly being added to the RCS NextGen RRDB page.
