Re: Vanishing Ambulance Services

I get them all the time on Quincy, Foxboro, Waltham. If I listen to Site 28 (Freetown) I even get the TG they use for western MA. You should get them on all of the sites you list as well, although Site 4 less often a bit. Looking at the DSDPlus.groups file the last hits I have were before the weeke...

Re: Vanishing Ambulance Services

Not as in going out of business, but as in I'm not hearing them on the systems where I used to. Vital Ambualnce. Was on ICE with TGs of 196 (ambulane) and 197 (chair car). There were bought by AMR sometime last year. I haven't got a hit on 196 since early December. I used to hear them on Foxboro an...

I set my 536 up to record and just play everything back and write it all down. If not allowed my apoligies. I like to load my scanner up with everything I find.
Same here!

Re: ICE MotoTRBO TRS Decoding Project

I don't think we post individual IDs as a rule. I know we don't for Law Enforcement, and don't think we do for private companies either. Occasionally, I have put in UIDs for base stations, but I don't know if we can still do that. Not only that, but it takes up a fair amount of space in our format....

Re: ICE MotoTRBO TRS Decoding Project

If you look down thread, you'll see a couple of posts where we discuss the "Pine Hill" tower. I think it's called Pine HIll, although I didn't see it listed as such on Google Maps. If you sit in the parking lot for the Prospect Hill Park and look across the street, you'll see that tower. Which is h...

Re: ICE MotoTRBO TRS Decoding Project

I just found TG 573, which is a towing company in Boston. A better ID is needed. I've only found it on Site 32 so far, but it should also show up on at least the two other Boston sites. Also, I think I finally found site 32 on this system. I haven't confirmed it yet, but it appears to be located on...

Industrial Trbo trunk talkgroup 104

Going over some recordings on my BCD536HP and monitoring from Central Mass I'm getting a medical transport company on talkgroup 104. The wiki shows the base identifies as 825. Listening to the recordings it sounds like they are actually identifying by 258. https://www.primemedtransport.com/ is locat...

Re: ICE MotoTrbo TG 562

I can't confirm that talkgroup in use in Worcester. However I will plug it in for tomorrow. Like I said they are all over the Worcester area now and back up for WEMS. I also do not see any 900 antennas on the trucks as of now. Also as most know private ambulance companies have multiple talkgroups fo...

Re: ICE MotoTrbo TG 562

110% positive! Their base was on Grafton Street, they've since moved to Freemont Street in Worcester. If you look at their facebook page you'll see. Scroll down to April 20th.https://www.facebook.com/accessambulance/?ref=br_rs

Re: ICE MotoTrbo TG 562

Access has also opened bases in Massachusetts also, Worcester and Sturbridge to be specific. I think they are also on the south shore, Brockton I think. It would make perfect sense for the to also be on the ICE trunk. There is no way they could share a talkgroup with Medtech. I see Access trucks all...

I think the quest is ended. They are not analog or digital anywhere in the spectrum I can find and i've been looking for years. As I said before I believe all their comms are via their GPS/AVL I found this .pdf of WRTA advisory board minutes from 2012 There was a complaint about no radios in new van...

That was part of the deal when they stopped paying for police details on the busses. They have conventional 800 radios that are tied into the trunk system on the emergency interop channel to reach police dispatchers. They don't use that channel for day to day operations. I listened to that freq this...

I'm leaning more towards a van type transportation company. I believe first student does Charlton and Dudley. AA Transportation does Rutland and a bunch of surrounding towns. Durham still does worcester and Oxford. They are still using the UHF ltr system.

Boylston PD has always been low band and will be low band for the foreseeable future. They don't have money to upgrade and they needed to move off West Boylston's frequency.

So I've upgraded my 536 with the dmr firmware and key. I was concerned about programming the ice system by hand. It actually wasn't that bad. About 5 hours for sites, talk groups and some radio ids, all with alpha tags. Works as advertised.

Now to work on id'ing users.
