This feed is captured from the Hempstead, TX tower site of the TXWARN Motorola Type II Smartzone Trunking System (800Mhz Rebanded) by a Uniden BCT8 Scanner in my Amateur Radio Station in Monaville, TX.  Callsign KF5JMD

*note: PVAMU Campus PD and Brookshire PD, which are also in Waller County, are not included in this feed, reason is too much radio traffic from those two agencies, they have their own active separate Dispatch's and will need separate feeds setup. Also note Waller County TxDOT was on this system, but as of 2012 moved to a Apco P25 Digital System out of Houston Area. No scanner support here for P25, may look into it for Future for sure.

**note: To monitor this tower site with your own scanner you will need a newer scanner that supports the 800Mhz Rebanding.  Although this is an old Motorola Trunking System originally tracked with Trunktracker I scanners, the older TrunkTracker I and II scanners will not track the trunk because of the new frequency spacings used after the Rebanding.  This Tower was Rebanded in Fall 2011.  A Trunktracker III might work (some, like Uniden BCT8, check for Rebanding support for your model scanner) a Trunktracker IV will certainly work fine to track this trunking system.

***note:  Per Terms of Agreement, this feed does not include, TAC, NARC, Investigator, or other semi-private, mission critical, or sensitive information talkgroups/backchannels on this system.  This Feed is for the Primary Dispatch of the above listed units and more units that are not listed. If sensitive type information is ever heard on this feed, the dispatch and/or the unit are not using TAC, they are on the Primary Dispatch. If the dispatch/units go to "TAC" and you cannot hear them, that is because TAC is not provided on this feed, you will hear them resume normal radio traffic when they return to Primary.

Feed Location/Equipment:

This feed is received about 13 miles from the Tower Site (Hempstead, TX) in Monaville, TX area using an Omni-directional scanner antenna at around 25 feet in air and a Uniden BCT8 Scanner. Reception is much improved now at the current location as of 12/14/2013.

Old Scanner Malfunctioned, replaced on 01/06/2014.  The old one had malfunctioned (distorted audio) from time to time over the last couple years, it finally got real bad so I replaced it with a 100% tested never had a problem ever scanner, works great now!
