Re: Sudbury PD P25

I can confirm that Medford uses the Metro North District Fireground (482.1875 - 141.3) as their Channel 2. It is simplex, so you won't hear anything unless you are in the immediate vicinity (which I was, recently).

Sounds like you are hearing multiple systems. Cap+ is likely from Mt Trashmore [WNFW237] with only One Freq CC:1, TG1, 2, 3, 5 and PVT Calls The Hotel Ops could be the Hyatt in Braintree, they applied for that Freq long ago, altho only MO http://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsApp/UlsSearch/licenseFreqSum.jsp?...

While doing some random searches and finding some expired license info, need a little help with this one. 463.2375 R D172 Definately a repeater, short transmissions, not much said to ID, sounds like unit making exterior patrols First thought is Hanover Mall [expired], signal is about the same as the...

Re: MBTA PD UHF signal issues?

Different Repeater sites ?, just a thought I'm in the office in Boston today and noticing a weird issue where some comms are very strong, but some are just barely above the noise floor. This seems kind of weird since it's a repeater so it doesn't really make any sense... Has anyone noticed something...
