New P25 User

Post by 26TM944 » 25 Apr 2019, 06:12

Over the last few days, I have been monitoring a user on 409.750 Mhz using P25P1 - NAC 293 - a lot of radio checks and a lot of users checking the radio details with each other. All users with broad American accents. I'm very near the border of Oxfordshire and Bucks and it's not RAF Croughton as they are still on 419 Mhz

Anyone else noticed a new user in the MIL band?

I did wonder if they maybe SS or DoD but the radio procedures were very poor - lots having to be told where to find the radio number etc and what callsign format to use...

I have it on record for most of the day and will review later when back to the house.

-- but interesting to see a P25P1 system pop up!

There is a weak analogue user on the same freq with CTCSS of 192.8. Chequers is pretty strong from here when they had radio ops from there but these guys are on par with a semi-local user so investigations will continue.
