Re: Franklin County 800 MHz

Probably not a worse place in the state to try and get full 8/700 coverage.

Re: MSP P25 Phase II in Western Mass.

In Gardner I occasionally get the Warwick tower. No real rhyme or reason (other than a cruiser needs to be in range).

Re: Unication G5 Dual Band 450-520 & 700-800MHz Voice Pager-Receiver

What was the previous receiver? But their system is definitely better to the south and east than to the north. Pure coincidence that someone who had something to do with the system lived in that direction away from the city.

Re: Portland 800 System P25 Upgrade

The P25 system has much better performance. On 95 south, heard it R9 all the way down below Biddeford. It's pretty good on the hill in OOB and readable down on East and West Grand. The analog system, NFW in those places.

Re: Worcester Red Sox [formerly Pawtucket]

Who says A or AA or Cape Cod League is less competitive? You want to take your family to a game, a higher level game or a pro game? The higher the level the more you're gonna pay. If they had stayed in Pawtucket, chances are ticket and associated prices would have gone up and you'd be complaining ab...

Re: Worcester Red Sox [formerly Pawtucket]

You want to take the family to a cheap game? Go see a AA, A or Cape Cod League team. I shot half a dozen Worcester Bravehearts gas this season. My wife came along to watch and she paid to get in. It didn't break the bank. I haven't read the details but I don't think the state is paying, I think they...

Re: Portland 800 System P25 Upgrade

I'm in Scarborough/OOB. Bayley's to be exact. The P25 system comes in much better than the analog system, same radio, same antenna etc. Haven't ventured out yet with it programmed. These are the TG's I got:

Good for Worcester. Bad for Pawtucket, Rhode Island, Providence? Too bad. Whatever. Yes, I'm biased. Does Rhode Island are about Worcester? No. Worcester is finally emerging (50 years too late) from it's bunker mentality, 'us against the world.' The city is taking off. I just hope it can stabilize a...

Nowhere near that area, but have not heard a peep from State Police. The Air Wing (if not grounded) would be all over that.

Re: Uniden SDS100 Scanner

Keep the great info coming. (I can't wade through all the garbage at RR to bother reading their self inflated threads) I'm debating whether to pull the trigger sooner than later as I have a couple roads trips coming up. My main reason for getting one is because of simulcast. The #36's are (as everyo...

Re: MSP Troop E to be eliminated

I would think even though OTAR 'could' be used, the techs want to hands on every radio. I would suspect that C Troop will add a C-Ptl-4 and that the troops will be broken up geographically a little better. C is busy enough to have 3 distinct patrol channels with an overload channel like C-Ptl-2 is u...

32976 EVENTS-7 "Seabring Command" {calling squad units}. Maybe MA Army National Guard Ops. BTW: I believe they are saying "Seabring" or "Sebring" or something That would be CBRN. See-burn.

Re: MSP Troop E to be eliminated

Which allowed them to drive to and from the Turnpike in cruisers and in uniform. Which meant that many more "off duty" traffic stops and that much more court OT they could get. Stupid Herald. Stupid maybe, but also more troopers on the road for a longer period of time, even if incremental. I've oft...

Re: Uniden SDS100 Scanner

My #36s I've found aren't great on simulcast.

UPMan is a good source of info, but the RR forums are such a cesspool of losers it's tough to struggle through the forums to glean any good info (unlike here).

I heard a WRTA bus on the Emergency channel on the P25 system this a.m. calling in a crash.

As for Van Pool, I'll see what I can find out next time one crashes while I'm on duty. I've had 2 in 3 shifts so you may not have to wait long. <rolleyes>
