New Federal VHF TRS

Some recent postings on Radio Reference are providing some details of a new VHF P-25 trunked system somewhere in northern Virginia. Here are the system details that are known;

System ID - 00A
WACN - 0000A

System NAC - 01F
Tower - 101

Main CC - 170.46250
Alt CC - 171.17500
Alt CC - 172.35000
Alt CC - 173.51250

All traffic has been encrypted so far, and no other towers appear to be a part of this system. Some have indicated the information gleaned from running the PRO96COM software package on this system show that it has APCO P25 Phase II TDMA capabilities.

I have noted that the System ID of 00A has shown up on several new trunked systems around the country and I had heard that this System ID is the "default" ID for Harris P25 systems.

I will post more information when it comes in!
