Re: SDS 200

Thanks for the review. For the moment, my lack of funds will force others to be the early adopters. I am completely baffled as to why there is not either a remote head or simply an app to control this unit. My hope is that a third party (b/c Uniden does not seem to be that proficient at app developm...

It appears Framingham 470.6750 has gone to P25 with a NAC of 302 for plowing operations. As soon as I am certain I will send a database update.

Thanks Dan.
Looks like I spoke to soon on the old frequencies.
While not normally in use, today they seemed to be simulcasting plow activity on the old 460.4125. Nothing on the old VHF lo (45.56).

New Natick DPW DMR

With snow on the horizon I thought I would share a new DPW DMR system I have been working to figure out. Over the summer Natick DPW seems to have completely stopped using their former system (simulcast UHF and VHF low). They have installed a new DMR system. The license is confusing to me (probably b...

During the search for the Lowell shooting suspect last night NEMLEC Command Post was operating on 482.6875 PL 146.2 so I think you can consider that a reconfirm.

I've been interested in this unit for the northern NH, ME border state police, fish and game, etc. NH is conventional P25 but is a real challenge to monitor due to weak signals and multipath.

New Gillette Stadium Cap Plus DMR System

Based on listening to traffic from the Taylor Swift concert over the past 2 nights it appears Gillette Stadium in Foxboro is running a Capacity Plus system in place of some of their traditional frequencies.

Thanks.
This system appears to still be in use and the frequencies above are no longer used by the LTR system in the wiki. A few of the original LTR frequencies do still appear to be in use for a smaller LTR system. When I have a moment I will confirm and make a submission to the wiki.

Here is a brief clip.
The first 8 seconds is what I think is the control channel on 484.4625; the next 9 seconds are a voice transmission and end transmission tone from one of the voice channels.

I also have found a move to DMR on many of these old LTR sites, but this one is different. I will try to post an audio file of the CC tomorrow.
