In the Bakersfield/Kern County area CalTrans is 800 conventional, not
trunked.
Try that and see what happens. Good luck ...

Trunking Group Codes for CALTRANS in the San Jose/San Francisco bay area?

Post by Emoney2 » Sat, 25 Apr 1998 04:00:00

how about group ID numbers like  400-2,  500-3, etc.  These are much easier for
the trunk tracker to stay locked on a specific channel (not frequency) to
follow conversations.  With the other type (4534,  421,  etc), you must
continuously scan becasue a specific channel can consist of more than one of
these type ID numbers.       Get with it people!!

The talkgroups that I supplied were for the Trunked sytems in the San
Francisco Bay Area. These systems are Type II. The talkgroups you
mention are Type I. If you have the Type I talkgroups for these systems
why not share them with us.

Ed

All I can say Ed is that in my area, th elocal police can be programmed as
either Type 1 or 2 in my Pro-90 scanner.  It's all in how I program my scanner.
 Maybe you're not so lucky in your area to use both types, I don't know.  I
simply set my scanner up to use a preset fleet map (Type 1) and wella!!  Again,
at first I was searching with the Type 2 mode and it also worked.  Good luck!!

What part of California are you located in?

Can you share the CALTRAN Talk Groups that came across with
the rest of us?

Sorry, it just seemed to fit. The Caltrans system ID's are not 400-2 or
500-3 as you suggested because they are not on a type I system. They are on
a type II. If you are monitoring a type I system in type II mode then you
get the results you mentioned above. Check the manual under fleet maps, it
goes into great detail about it.
