Brunswick – As I posted yesterday, Glynn County is transitioning from their legacy analog trunked system to the SEGARRN digital system that is also used by Bryan, Chatham, Effingham, and Liberty counties. Some preliminary listening yesterday indicates that both Glynn County and City of Brunswick public safety agencies have moved over as well as Glynn County public works. From this point, depending upon what you like to listen to, there is good and bad news. If you like to listen to fire/rescue, you’re in good shape; the fire departments are using regular digital voice. If law enforcement listening is your thing, you’re out of luck; it appears that both Glynn County PD and Brunswick PD are using encrypted talkgroups. (If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you already know I don’t blog on Law Enforcement communications anyway)
After listening for just a short time yesterday morning I was able to identify three talkgroups, although I haven’t yet figured out a talkgroup designator or ID for them: 13312 is Glynn County Public Works, 13320 is Glynn County FD Dispatch, and 13334 is Brunswick FD Dispatch. I’ll be leaving a radio and computer running for awhile to do some logging and as I figure out more I’ll post more updates.
