I get a very weak signal on 938.175 which appears to be a Motorola control channel
When i sit on the control channel i get "ID 144" however i am not sure if that is the actual system ID because usually it will read "SID: " when decoding a system ID
I have been receiving the control channel for a while but just recently i got voice on TG 240 which was weak but i could hear that it was a radio check

This freq is licensed to National Grid at a site in Brooklyn and also appears to be part of the upcoming PSEG P25 system
The TG 240 i received would correspond with the National Grid system which is system 2A11 in the Radioreference DB but again i did not decode that system ID

The freqs i have for this system as follows -
900.925
936.000
936.900
938.175
939.175

I am not sure where this signal is coming from but all i know is i can only seem to receive it at higher elevations and or very open spaces and even then its still a weak signal

Are you sure it's not a P25 control channel? Those frequencies are all licensed to LIPA/PSEG in Suffolk County with P25 emissions under trunking licenses. What are you using to decode this, a Uniden scanner?

Also, 900.925 is not a valid frequency.

Its apparently a Motorola control channel and i have the listed frequencies programmed in as a Mot system
On the TG 240 it was analog voice
Yes this is on a 996xt

I suppose i could be picking up the Grid system but im not sure why NG would have a system in Brooklyn anyway because the gas/electric utility in NYC is Con Edison...

That must be what you're hearing, then. And not all of NYC is Con-Ed, National Grid/Keyspan provides gas service in Brooklyn, Queens, and SI.

Queens i knew but Brooklyn/SI i wasnt sure
I suppose they absorbed the old "Brooklyn Gas" customers
And looking at the former ConEd trunk systems i did not see any talkgroups in regards to Brooklyn or SI gas ops

Also it looks like the freqs for this system were originally licensed to Keyspan(NatGrid) on the island as well - [link]

If anyone else is able to receive this - i would be curious to know the signal strength/location you received it and whatnot

936.900 may be a control channel for this system as well
