Re: Unidentified taxis (I presume)

D'oh -- I missed that there was a separate NH taxis page! kelton.dray is definitely correct about Five Five Taxi. I somehow missed that 152.33 was a known Somerville one. Most of the others are either different PLs or just unlisted (or invalid frequencies). Will have to explore more, though I'm hamp...

Unidentified bus frequencies

Last of the stuff I noticed on a VHF discovery run. These all sound like school buses but I can't match them up to anything known. It's possible some of these aren't in NH. 151.9850 - D074 - Sounds like school buses, discussing seating. Repeater. Referenced going to Mountainview (likely a school nam...

Unidentified taxis (I presume)

Spent a bit on Discovery. I believe the following are taxis; some are known taxi frequencies, and some I'm just assuming are taxis. Posting in Eastern MA because that's where I'm hearing these, but they could be in NH. 151.7300 - 156.7 - Spanish, hearing multiple signals of mixed strength. Could be ...

151.6850 - Haunted?!

I came across something really odd on 151.6850, PL 151.4. At first it sounded like someone with an echo mic way over-driving the audio, but there were also tones that sounded somewhere between a paging transmitter and some sort of siren/alarm. My initial note on coming across it was "Horrible audio,...

Idea - wiki page with common frequency errors

I'm working through another Discovery run on VHF, and am again being thrown through the loop with the scanner guessing step size wrong. As an example, I found Cataldo EMS at 152.3650, but they're actually 152.3675. Same issue with Haverhill Fire, 154.3600 (actually 154.3625). When I don't find it th...

Rivier College DMR

I heard DMR on 153.635, Color Code 4, with a reference to the Dion Center, confirming it's Rivier. The matching license is WQSU848, though it looks to be only narrowband voice and NXDN. It's only 25W ERP, at 10m HAAT, so it doesn't get out super far. My monitoring only got the color code; more monit...

Is it helpful for me to posting all of this? On one hand, there is a fair bit of stuff that hasn't been reconfirmed in years, and it seems valuable to help validate what's still live.

Handling of unknown frequencies that could be inputs

Obviously, we should not be publishing repeater input frequencies. And it's often fairly obvious what's what. But what about cases where it's not?

Except for a noted PL correction, this is otherwise just reconfirming data that's a year old or more. Police...

Brookline PD PL change?

During a bit sweeping the spectrum, I found Brookline (NH) PD active on 153.785, but using a PL of 82.5 instead of the listed 136.5. The traffic I heard was definitely Brookline based on addresses and landmarks. The PL change seems a little improbable, though, to the point that I'm reluctant to subm...

At least with the G5 the issue is not just swapping the antenna. The UHF or VHF receiver has no connection to the external antenna (also no connection to antenna connector on amplified base).
