Re: Boston Marathon 2019

Hello,

I am getting bag checks on 600002 and 600003. There is one person who is transmitting with an open mike occasionally on 600002. This is on the OneVoice system site 69.

Re: Boston Marathon 2019

Hello, There is radio traffic for the BAA 5K this morning. It uses a subset of the Marathon channels. I still have to go through my recordings for the last couple of days to see if I can get testing on the OneVoice channels. So far it looks like the same setup as last year.

Re: 462.0625 - New

Hello,

I should check my notes and recomfirm my receiving years ago of two DMR repeaters on the same UHF frequency with the same color code, same timeslot, and same talkgroup. I seem to remember it was CC1, TS1, TG 1. The repeaters had different signal levels.

Hello,

This seemed to be drill day as there was another drill in Andover. I thought maybe there was an additional one at the Airport, but it could have been related to the MCCA one.

If you have an account on the FCC website, you can log in and get an "Official Copy" of any of your licenses. You can print it out on heavier stock.
