    I saw on Facebook that they were in Concord yesterday. They are also quite active in Framingham other days and in Boston as well.

    Thanks for this, John. I was wondering what the activity & temporary traffic signs were all about in Concord Center during my commute. Will try to ferret out some freqs.

    I'm sitting in my car right now in Concord -- two close call hits so far. Most interesting: 216.42 mhz (unless it's an image). No tone -- constant broadcast carrying director, actor dialog, and background conversations. Somebody was complaining about Hanscom's traffic messing up their sound.

    Also 452.3 dcs 032 with unknown coordinators discussing who is going for lunch and for how long.

    The second high-band VHF region for wireless microphones, 174-216MHz, is designated for broadcast and commercial film/video production.
    Primary users of this band are television channels 7-13.
    High quality audio is possible, transmission losses are minimal, and acceptable antenna sizes are possible.
    Interference from other users and general RFI exists, but it is much less likely than for low-band frequencies.
    In addition, there are ample frequencies available (mainly locally unused television channels) in almost any part of the US.

    Thanks Bill.

    I'm having troube getting the correct mode on that freq...I've tried nfm, fm, wfm and none sound quite right. I didn'T try am.

    Two additional freqs:
    452.2 dcs 031 on-set coord
    457.85 not enough traffic to get tone or usage

    Back to work.

    IF I recall and others who use them please jump in, but it is WFM, more like FM Radio and I don't think the newer scanners due true WFM anymore

    Probably a wireless intercom system (Industry calls them wireless PL's) Often made by Clear Comm, Telex or RTS. As Bill said these usually share the wireless mic bands but movie folks look for ones way out of the way of all thier other wireless mics. So VHF is a great place for them leaving the UHF band open for all their other wireless.
