Welcome to NCTX-Scanner
Alright Scanner Friends, fans and Followers, We are launching something new at NCTX-Scanner. We have not had a Wiki in a Very long time so last night I added a wiki to the site. I added MediaWiki which is a really user friendly Wiki with a very nice look. In fact it looks as good as wikipedia but functions with ease and simplicity. The purpose of the Wiki of course will be to build a radio frequency and scanner resource database to share with our fans and followers. Our target is the counties in and around Texoma in North Texas and Southern Oklahoma but we plan to include aviation, amateur, marine, business and federal data as well.
So here is the Link to our new Wiki
Black Friday was a good one for us at NCTX-Scanner. We picked up a mobile radio console for the mini-van which will give us the flexibility to better mount the mobile gear and IT equipment so we can make twitter and facebook reports from the field. NCTX-Scanner Mobile-1 uses a LTR radio system in Whitewright Texas for radio dispatch but we have never really ventured into mobile use of computers. Well we’re working to change that. This will also allow us to shoot weather video in the van and upload it in the field or even stream it live. The plan is to be able to make an incident scene and stream live radio data from the scene. Our hope is that the new UNIDEN BCD536HP and the Siren software will allow us to stream from the field much more efficiently than we can now using current technology.
Heads up Eastern Grayson County! The new Savoy Police Link repeater is almost on the air. This repeater is located on the Savoy Water tower on Water St. behind the Savoy Fire Station. All that’s lacking is the duplexer to be installed then the system will be up and running. This site will repeat 154.7250 the Fannin Co. Law Enforcement channel well into Grayson Co. The receive frequency is 152.4575 PL: 173.8
UNIDEN LAUNCHES NEW LINE OF POLICE SCANNERS
I have been scanning Dallas some lately and yes, I love scanning the Fed channels. and I have found two highly active New VHF channels. The first I believe is the new Dallas ICE repeater. 163.6250 NAC 032. This has mixed Clear and Encrypted traffic and seems to be used as a rolling Surveillance channel more than anything. The other is a DEA assignment 173.8625 156 NAC and 100% Encrypted. But man is this repeater active. A close reliable but anonymous source tells us that Dallas DEA, FBI, ICE and Marshalls are all sharing a repeater while the new Dallas Federal radio infrastructure is rebuilt. Well if both FBI and US Marshal service are on a repeater, shared or not, its likely going to have full time encryption. This new frequency might just be the temp repeater they are using.
I also recently discovered the City of Southmayd in Grayson County has a digital carrier on their local frequency. 155.1825 and I believe the NAC to be 065. A Police officer for Southmayd also verified that Southmayd Police and fire were P25 compliant and do use a unified channel.
Keep your ear’s on Fannin County, seems they are relying on P25 digital communications more and more as the repeater becoming narrowband and moving to a higher tower has opened the Analog bleed over door to the point that no one can hear each other in analog. 154.7250/155.9100 NAC 293 is the configuration for FCSO.
