    Default Bridgewater PD (Was: Warwick PD P25)

    I was listening to 453.825 and discovered that Boston Water and Sewer has converted to DMR. All of that is AVL and ARS, but I also heard P25 audio. That seems to be Warwick PD with a NAC of 270. No encryption. I don't see that in the Wiki, so I thought I'd mention it here to see if that's correct.

    That is confirmed.
    Warwick's Secondary has gone P25 with that NAC. I will update the WIKI and RR.
    The primary is still analog at 210.7
    Monitoring to see if the other channels have changed.

    Thanks. I really just stumbled on that. It confused me at first, because the signal strength was roughly equal. DSD+ was showing weird results because it was seeing both signals simultaneously.

    Caught some of that P25, maybe someone local can confirm, but the accents did not seem to match the analog - the P25 might be elsewhere

    OK I am able to confirm it is not Warwick. I heard back from a radio vendor, they have not switched to P25, nor any plans to. I heard a records check come back to a party out of Cranston, and assumed it was Warwick.

    They've had .725 and .825 forever. I never understood why they didn't move to the city trunk system. Maybe has something to do with being a Commission and not a city agency. The .3375 frequency is new and I heard nothing on it last week. I'll let DSD+ sit on it next week.

    There are a good number of users converting from analog to digital, so I expect more changes in both RI and MA.

    That's interesting. More listening is in order.

    Potentially Townsend? Town has a P25 emission designator on their license.

    Delta just got a DMR Trunk licensed for Terminal A - two sites

    Edit
    I believe this is Bridgewater or Bridgewater State U (Although not sure why they would dispatch to an accident far off campus). This is not the University
    453.8250 $270
    PD base referred to themselves as "Station J", and the cruiser called the dispatch "J4".
    They responded to an accident at Cumberland Farms on Pleasant St. (There are Cumbies on Pleasant St in Attleboro, and Brockton as well).
    Attleboro and Brockton are on their respective normal channels as dispatching

    Bridgewater's normal frequency is being used as a secondary channel as of this writing, based on the types of comms.

    More evidence about this being Bridgewater. Call for a cruiser to go to a Main St address and he mentioned he was "Central Square" which is in Bridgewater.

    Nice work. That would definitely explain why I was getting it so well. Bridgewater is just a couple of towns. As Bill tells us, sometimes things show up on frequencies without licenses.

    The analog is still technically the primary.

    Due to this, I have moved the thread to the SE Mass Forum.

    On one or both frequencies? That's going to be interesting too. I was able to check the GPS locations using Bing Maps. All of the ones I put in were in Boston, not near the airport. The Delta system could be very low power for use inside the terminal and maybe the cargo building.

    [altho we are hijacking the thread]
    WRAR238
    42 21 47.8 N, 071 01 30.0 W = address of 100 Terminal A and maps right to the FAR Side - near the Fire Boat Dock
    42 22 10.4 N, 071 01 05.4 W = adderess 100 Terminal A but maps right to Terminal E - close enough to say "airport"

    Again, I think you need a new map or some lessons with google-earth/google maps
    I even tried bing maps and they put it right at the same locations.

    If that's how the coordinates should go into Google Maps, then you just taught something. I wasn't putting in N and W and had the decimal in the wrong place. I just put the first set of coordinates in as you listed them and it shows Harborside Drive, which is the back of Terminal A. The other set does go right to Terminal E. So, now I'll play around with that and see if the coordinates in the FCC database map out correctly. Thanks.

    That being said, I was less than clear when I was talking about plugging coordinates into Bing and Google. I was reading coordinates off of the DSD+ screen. DSD+ will diplay that data as vehicles send updates back to the server. Some systems, I think Canton DPW is one, send data on one slot and voice on the other. Anyway, what I was doing was plugging data into the map and seeing where particular vehicles were located. Which told me that it was Water and Sewer.

    There is a constant data signal on 453.8250 that comes in so strong that I have never been able to hear Townsend without being right close to town. My scanner was always hearing the data. It took me quite a while to confirm Townsend PD last summer.

    As of this morning, 453.8250 is simulcasting Bridgewater University Police.

    This is Bridgewater State University's new frequency. The analog went silent on Friday, and all comms have been here only.
    I will update the WIKI shortly.
