Roland, the system is Motorola Capacity Plus running 5 TX/RX freq pairs. As the system is Mototrbo you will need to use equipment that can receive DMR.

FYI, The repeater "booms" out and can be heard quite a distance from the stadium.

Portable RID's start with 61XXX and base/fixed units are 56XX

Talkgroup range is 20-32(12 known in use)

Thanks mate.

A DMR and P25 scanner is on my purchase list.

This information will be brilliant for the future.

FYI, there is no DMR conventional scanner on the market, you can use a cheap dongle or save for a good commercial interface. they all do just as good as each other for most monitoring. There are other methods but a dongle will be the cheapest.

I just turned on my receiver and they are on air now using 2 talkgroups so far

I'm going to get a lot of surplus gear that can support it.

Yes, it's not all that legal, but meh, I break the law responsibly.

Warsug is always open for generous donations! hehe.

I haven't played much with decoding P25 and DMR with dongles... Are any folks who have done this interested in writing a how-to?

I'd be happy to help provide a linux guide.

Linux is the preferable platform for this kind of experimentation.

I'll find a link to an article/how to. There is plenty of DMR and P25 around that is in the clear.

Best method is to first use a SDR dongle to find what you want to listen to and then set a radio up with RX only to listen in.

How do you set up the Perth Arena frequency? Im using the Uniden 436hp with dmr upgrade.Ive tried puting the previously posted frequencies into a Mototurbo system but nothing comes up.

hi i don't know anything about the uniden 436hp but with the TRX-2 & TRX-1 you can set it up so that when they talk it will display the frequency,color code,time slot,talkgroup that is being used on that frequency. as i live down south the next time im up i will have a listen on the arena frequency's and post anything i find out.
