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: Hartford Fire 800 Dispatch Simulcast?

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.

Nxdn 464.3875

Only logical license I could find is this http://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsApp/UlsSearch/license.jsp?licKey=3164859 I do not know enough about NXDN systems to decipher it. DSD shows Ran 5 and only getting radio ids so i'm not sure if this is a co...

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.

The AAA contracted companies use it for interoperability purposes. They have their own company channel and they also have an AAA contractor channel. That way they can contact AAA via radio for information instead of calling on the phone and possibly being placed on hold. It also comes in handy if th...

Technically it would be the east side. However southbridge street is the divider between east and west. With many students living on Compton Chelsea and Woodard behind Romans I would leave the west side on too for the weekend party calls.
