I have the need to identify which of 100 radios is transmitting on a repeater based system.
At one of our large customer sites they have a problem with individuals transmitting jokes who cannot be identified. They have asked us for a solution which will be able to tell who is transmitting at a given time. The customer put it simply... could we log the serial numbers of who is transmitting at any given time?
Since they have a TAIT 7100 repeater with 100 channels I had the idea of programming all of the radios with a different TX
frequency, while all of them use the same RX
frequency. The repeater would then be programmed to RX
on all of the different channels and TX
on the same channel. Then my idea would be to use something like the Kaltman Creations IW1800 PC Based Spectrum Analyzer, but I do not know if this will record/log timestamped transmissions on an ongoing basis.
Could anyone tell me if this is the right way to go about this or if there is some easier way. The only other thing that I can think of would be to programme the radios with different use DCS/CTCSS tones that could be logged using some special device that I am
unaware of.... this would be much easier to setup as programming a repeater when each individual handset is added to the system (which is often) could be a can of worms... especially as they need a license for their bands
