Starcom21 is the Statewide Motorola Project 25 TRS in Illinois for public safety radio communications. The purpose of this page is to provide supplemental information to the Radioreference.com Starcom21 page.

A former essential source for Starcom21 information is the CARMA Starcom21 profile.

This is no longer being updated, though.

Radio ID's (RIDs) / User IDs (UIDs)

  • RIDs are given on the scanner displays of Pro-106/197, PSR500/600, BCD-396XT, BDC-996XT scanners and the pro96com PC program.

Feel free to add any RIDs to the lists below, using the current format.

Site/Tower Google Map

This may prove I have too much time on my hands, but I have taken all of the information from the CARMA profile and plotted all the transmit sites for StarCom using the "my maps" feature of Google Maps. Anyone wanting to check it out can go here: Link

A few things about the map:

  • After plugging in the coordinates for each site on the map I tried to locate the exact tower or structure used by a combination of satellite view, street view, and in some cases switching to Microsoft's Bing Maps for their Birds Eye view. If it still wasn't exactly clear I made a guess usually just putting the mark where the lat/lon coordinates landed me.
  • Pushpins are used for single site locations, blue for the north zone, green for central, and purple for south.
  • The "balloon" type pins are used on all simulcast sites, with different colors for each site.
  • At this time I included the county owned sites that use the same technology as StarCom including McHenry County (all of these being co-located with StarCom sites), Champaign's MDICE, and the St. Clair County system. My only regret doing this is that with all these sites included Google shows two separate pages for the sites, so not all of them are visible at one time on the map. I'm debating whether to take these sites out and make the map strictly StarCom so all the sites show up at once.

Google allows anyone with a Google account to make changes to the map, however I have it set up to only allow those that I invite to make the changes. If anyone is interested in helping to maintain the map or make corrections or additions to it, send me your e-mail address and I will add your name to the list. If you notice any errors either in locations of towers or the control channels listed and don't have a Google account or don't want to mess with the map, e-mail me and I will be glad to make the corrections.

Comments, praise, and even criticisms are welcome. -Mike McGowan - K9JPM
