NEW DIGITAL RADIO SYSTEM
here area the counties using the digital radios
How does the digital/trunking
repeater system work ?
The first misunderstanding is the word
"digital". There are many scanners that have a
digital display, but will not receive digital
formatted signal. In fact, there are only a very
few scanners that will receive the new digital
trunking formated signal and they are quite a
bit more expensive.
Here's how the digital/trunking works.
Digital means, When someone transmits on a
2-way radio using a " digital" radio, it
converts their regular analog voice to a
digital format. Just like a computer when it
converts your information data. In fact, it is a
computerized 2-way radio system. That is why
you need a digital receiver that will convert
the digital signal back to analog voice.
The "trunking" part of the system uses
up to 15 different channels which are shared
by multiple users or agencies. Each time they
transmit, the system randomly selects an open
available channel for them to use..
"Repeater" systems electronically repeats the
radio's transmission providing longer range.
This also usually allows you to receive both
sides of the communications
Since the new system has been activated,
users and agencies have been very happy
with the results. The performance, clarity, and
coverage have met most
everyone's needs and expectations.
To hear most of the police , fire and ambulance
conversations and the 911 center, you need a
new digital trunking scanner with P-25 format
The problem is, digital scanners are more
expensive than analog scanners and are very
complicated to program.
