Correction For Worcester County Sheriff Page

Looking at the first line 'Frequency' MSP TRS I believe 'Tone' should read TG: 37168.
I have never heard Worcester County Sheriff on any other talkgroup but the one mentioned above.
I believe that 39168 is a typo.

Update To The 1360 Talkgroup Discussion

Hello, Using my Uniden BC895 scanner today on Zone 8, I am hearing what is identified as F-PTL-3 on 1331 (which would actually be 1328 (83 digital on COMIRS) (one channel below where they originally were) I am not sure why it was changed but that is what I am hearing. Also, the units are calling int...

Re: New Talkgroup 1360 (Zone 8)

I can confirm today that talkgroup 85 appeared on the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Interoperability Radio System. So do we identify 1360 analog and 85 digital as F-PTL-3?

Re: New Talkgroup 1360 (Zone 8)

0715 hours this morning: Worcester Security Patrol to Station F, code 4.

I haven't had the opportunity yet to investigate if this is also on the digital system too. The talkgroup would be 85, I believe.

If it helps, I heard the transmissions between 7 and 7:30 in the morning. Of course now that I have mentioned this discovery, there was nothing heard Thursday morning.

Re: Fire District 8 Simulcast

I could be wrong, but I think the simulcast is just a Worcester P25 thing. I have never heard the simulcast anywhere else.

Worcester TRS Talkgroup 2507

Hello all.

Got a hit today on the Worcester TRS TG 2507. It was repeating what I was hearing on Fire District 7 Orange (159.4575).
It is in the wiki as 2508 but I think that is a typo. There are no Worcester Talkgroups using even numbers.

New talkgroup to report for Worcester P25 TRS - 4513

A new talkgroup popped up on the Worcester P25 TRS tonight - 4513. It sounds like the DPW and snow-related. Perhaps this is the long lost DPW Snow Plows (12-056) from the retired EDACS system. Can anyone else confirm this. I saw this talkgroup on my scanner last month after the other big storm but d...

I grabbed 627 listening this afternoon. Worcester was sending mutual aid fire personnel to Southbridge for the large structure fire there. The dispatcher told them that they had to switch to 'Area-Wide' and 627 came up on my scanner.

On the Airport side it appears that ORH Security/ARFF is operating on talkgroup 179. I have heard activity three times this evening.
