Feed Notes

This feed covers the City of Roseville, California. They have transitioned from a Motorola SmartNet trunked system to a P25 Phase I system in August 2018. Few details are publicly available as to talkgroups, but I believe I have it set for routine police and fire traffic. Due to learning pains, Roseville Fire appears to be frequently using VHF instead of the newer P25, but their primary dispatch channel is simulcasted with their VHF channel, so still heard on the P25 system here.

One of the challenges I have learned about the Roseville system is that they rotate their control channel from time-to-time, which using my current software is a challenge, as the software I use to monitor the system does not support rolling or rotating control channels. The original software I was using (Unitrunkerdid support this challenge, as I used two SDR tuners, one to listen to each of the control channels and one to listen to the voice channels. With the new software (SDRTrunk), I see much more of the inner workings of the system and it more easily facilitates sharing the audio with all of you, but it currently lacks the ability to automatically change the control channel. Another advantage to SDRTrunk is that it is written in Java, meaning that it will work on Windows, Mac, Linux and possibly FreeBSD. The drawback, as I said is it doesn't currently support a rotating control channel, meaning that I have to manually change the control channel after it has been moved. This will mean that the system will be quiet until I have a chance to change it. So far, as luck would have it, I am not at home when they change the control channel. I apologize if the system goes quiet from time to time, but I try to keep tabs on it multiple times a day.
