Re: any1 know of any callsigns or call codes

Been listening to PTA train control, and I've noticed extra callsigns other than the usual "Driver xxxx". So far I've heard Sierra 34, November 39, Charlie 58, Charlie 62 and November 36. They all call in like the others, but don't know what the callsigns mean. Anyone got an idea? Thanks.

Re: Health Minister blames amateurs for pagers

They don't mention amateur radio at all in that article, let alone blame anyone. The only mention I've seen was on 9 news when someone explained how the thing worked.

Re: Is WAPOL encrypted statewide?

It's explained better here: As noted above, cryptographic keying of P25 radios may be done manually by a technician with a special keyloading...

Re: Bus and Train Frequencies???

Affiliation shouldn't be an issue if you're using an SDR to receive, which I think is what you implied you're using. Which area are you trying to listen to?

Makes sense, don't know if you'd be able to migrate everything over to a new server either.

Re: Recent outages

Have you considered cloud hosting for the forum? Could be a cheaper alternative and give better speeds. Something like DigitalOcean for $5 a month could be a viable solution.

Has anyone tried scanning the MHS DMR (trunk?) systems? From what I've been told, most staff have access to a handheld, but it's only really used with major incidents. All the frequencies are around the HGS at about 414 MHz, and the emission designator is hinting towards it being TDMA MotoTRBO, and ...
