Re: MSCommNet Thread II

I received transmissions on an 800 MHz mobile repeater from a State Police cruiser today in South Berwick. 851.6875 was transmitting a P25 control channel showing a system ID on my BCD396XT of 0077h. It didn't show a site ID. I actually swapped that freq into my scanner as a CC and received Zone 1A ...

Re: Maine Game Wardens

I hadn't thought of adding 155.970 into my radio after the switch to MSCOMMNET. Most IFW TGs are encrypted. Forest service is dispatched on the Zone primary channels, I have very rarely heard any of the Forresty TGs active.

In the clear or encrypted? A post on RR (with no sources cited) stated they would be encrypted on the new system.

Re: Massive Gas Leak - large scale incident - Lawrence-N Andover-Andover

I know a fire LT from NH. He reports that departments as far north a Concord have responded. Running cards go up to 10 alarms, and at last count they were 20 alarms above that. Dover, Rochester, and Durham from Strafford County and several Seacoast departments (Portsmouth, Rye, North Hampton) also ...

South Berwick Dispatch closing 8/29

Sanford will take over dispatching Berwick and South Berwick, effective August 29th.
South Berwick and Berwick frequencies are now patched together, and SBPD units are using 200-series IDs (Berwick remains 100s).

Re: USS Manchester

I'm not hearing an unidentified CC in the 380-420 band or 457 MHz band; I ran a limit search from the USS Albacore park, about 1/4 mile from where the ship is docked. Could be 457 MHz conventional rptr?

What's strange is that none of those freqs have an FB2 or FB8 station class, only FX1 and MO.

Re: NEW HAMPSHIRE SP Trunked System

I don't know what the plan is for those freqs (if any), I would program them in as conventional freq so you would be able to monitor any activity.

Re: Does Anyone Ever Use VHF FM Simplex Any More?

When the bands were open last week I heard quite a few folks on 146.520. I worked a station on .52 in Standish, ME from Rollinsford, NH with a HT running 5w and a full-wave loop antenna in my backyard.

Interesting that North Reading Fire uses a DPL of 664.
Even more interesting when you consider that the telephone exchange for North Reading PD is 664!

Re: USS Manchester

It would be a P25 system, correct? Unless they borrow a Moto or EDACS system off a decommissioned vessel? I'll give tracking it down a shot when she's in town.

I had a chance for some brief monitoring in Auburn today. I heard county dispatch on 155.670/192.8 simplex, calling Sheriff units as well as as a Sabattus unit and another town I didn't quite make out. I heard nothing on 153.9725, and I didn't have a chance to monitor 154.8225.
