Re: Shrewsbury Police New Frequencies?

Shrewsbury Police are currently using 151.250 R Pl 114.8 "F-2" for a Traffic Detail. Haven't heard anything but morse code ID for a year on this frequency (ran with no PL tone to confirm it still existed). My only guess is that maybe at one point there was ongoing interference on 155.700 from Johnst...

Re: Strange Scanner Behavior

I had an issue with 120.500 AM Worcester Airport tower and 160.650 FM Providence and Worcester Railroad Road channel. Since there is no PL option on either of these frequencies, I had to find the source. I took me along time to figure it out, but since the scanners were next to the 220 AC outlet for...

Re: Westborough Police

Through out the past 2 weeks I have been able to hear Westborough Police at home in Grafton. I also have been able to hear them mobile as far as Auburn. Maybe its conditions but I seem to think maybe they have switched the transmitter site to Fay Mountain site the same as Fire.

Re: MSP Troop E to be eliminated

That would make sense since it aligns the patrol area on the mass pike ending at Troop C's last town in the east which is Hopkinton/Southborough area. I think the best thing to do for someone who is commuting on the mass pike from say Sturbridge to Framingham would be to listen to C-PTL-3 then liste...

Re: MSP Troop E to be eliminated

I was traveling the Turnpike between route 128(I-95) and 495 recently and I'm having trouble grasping where the boundary would be between H-PTL-2 and C-PTL-3. Is it in Grafton which is past Route 495? Route 495 from Route 2 in Littleton to I believe Route 140 in Milford is covered by cruisers on C-...

I see the E-1 weston Barracks which is brand new being reassigned to Framingham (H-3 Framingham) since the building is very old and closing the old Framingham Barracks. E-2 Charlton is somewhat older and probably on obsolete inside, I see the charlton building eventually closing as a state police fa...

They go down to 29 or 30 mhz I wonder what model mobile radios they use. All you really need for mobile use only is a good low band set up.

There is central mass auto auction in oxford. However, I think your more likely to hear addessa auto auction in framingham which is in the old GM plant in a very large and tall building.

Ludlow PD

Some what unrelated: I am upgrading my uniden radios to DMR. This reminds me of the mid 90s when Chicopee and Westfield switched to 800mhz for no real reason. Edit: Back than circa 1995 I only had a basic VHf/UHF scanner “800 mhz” was an option and it was pre internet. Worcester just switched to the...

Could this also be the end of the legacy low band system? I can’t recall the last time i have heard BOLO traffic on 42.400 Troop C. I remember the days when that’s all they had was 42.400, than they had the 800 conventional repeaters for C-6 and C-5. Then by the year 2000 both C-PTL-1 and C-PTL-3 ha...

I am willing to accept not being able to hear Westboro Police as I can hear westboro fire. Since most of Westborough major population is in the downtown/route 9 area it makes sense.

Westborough Police

For Some reason I cannot hear Westborough Police on 482.3625 in Grafton at all I live by the Northbridge line. In Westborough and towns close to Westborough I can hear westborough police some what scratchy but clear. It doesn’t matter what radio or antenna I use. Westborough Fire on 482.400 on the o...

It is a Simplex channel. Meaning no radio tower. Harrington Hospital Public Safety uses UHF.
