Conventional radio systems Trunked radio systems Trunked system basics How a trunked system works A real life example Conventional radio systems In a conventional radio system, each group of users is assigned one for simplex systems or two frequencies for repeater systems.

For example, the police in your area might operate on A user selects the channel they want to communicate on and presses the PTT button on the side of their radio. This sends a channel request message to the controller that the user wants to start a transmission on the Talk Group ID the channel that they selected.

Their radio is programmed up at the radio shop. In the RadioReference database, you can generally determine the radio system type by looking at the line labeled System Type at the top of the screen inside the red square in the screenshot.

If the System Type line says anything else, then it is not a P25 system even though it might have some P25 channels. Page 50 RadioReference is the ability to tag channels directly on the site and print out a nicely-formatted hardcopy of each system. It makes this task much, much easier. This frees you from having to manually enable and disable systems or channel groups as you change location.

To use the geopolitical approach, find the geographical center of the scanning target's territory whether city, county, district, precinct, or other agency jurisdiction , and set these coordinates as your center point location. Both sites list the latitude, longitude, and height of the antenna, and both sites can map the exact location for you.

Combining for Efficiency Because many trunked systems have both multiple antenna sites and multiple agencies with differing geographic boundaries, you may want to combine the approaches: 1. Use the antenna centric approach at the site level: set the geographic coordinates of the antenna as the central location for each site. It is legal to listen to almost every transmission your scanner can receive.

However, there are some transmissions that you should never intentionally listen to. Page General Precautions This might be particularly true of the type of earphone that is placed in the ear canal.
