Re: Van Pool

I'm also hearing what appears to be identical traffic to 452.3875 on 463.9625 CC9 using talkgroup 1126901 TS1/2. It's also licensed to Applied Communications Services in Boston and I'm getting much better reception here than 452.3875.

Re: County Communications NXDN

I haven't heard them recently on it, but my reception of the LTR is more sporadic than my reception of the NXDN system so I can't 100% confirm that. I'll try the LTR in the next few days to see if I get anything. I'm getting about the same results from my area with regard to quality. There are times...

Re: Copley Place Mall

Unfortunately I have no info, but can confirm that I'm no longer hearing it as well. I parked my scanner on the frequency for several hours a few days ago to see if it had changed modes but didn't catch anything, not even DMR data from a weak signal.

Re: County Comms NXDN (System 90)

It appears that Northeast Regional Ambulance has now moved from the LTR system to this one as TG 300. I've been hearing Paramedic 31 along with Ambulance 20 responding to locations in Beverly. At first they all seemed to be IFTs so I wasn't confident that it was them for sure but I just heard them g...

Re: Vanishing Ambulance Services

Speaking of southern MA ambulance services, has anyone gotten any hits on either of the Alert Ambulance Talkgroups on ICE? I can't remember the last time I saw them pop up. It might just be that they don't go into Boston as much as it used to, given that I only receive Sites 2, 4, 22, and 23 regular...

Re: Couple of North Shore area freq questions

Interesting that you heard 151.9850 loud in clear in Beverly, are you working off of an external antenna? I hear it with a very poor signal not far from Logan but with transmissions (not to mention the fact that the license location is Children's Boston) that seem more to do with the Boston Hospital...

Thanks guys, I wasn't aware of the BearComm-Comtronics connection. I'm pretty convinced that I've properly ID'd it, but I'd like someone else to listen and confirm what I think I'm hearing before I add it just because the license doesn't match considering that the rest of MGH's frequencies in use se...

For a while now I've been hearing facilities operations on 859.9125 with a color code of 1, using TG1005 and a timeslot of 2. Upon further listening it's definitely MGH facilities for the Charlestown and Chelsea campuses. I'm getting locations like buildings 114 and 149 (both buildings in Charlestow...

Comtronics UHF MotoTrbo Trunk (Non-Duplicate)

At long last, finally confirmed:

TG 54 - Stanleys Towing 1
TG 56 - Stanleys Towing 2

It finally dawned on me to cross-reference the plates called out over the air with the Boston towing lookup website. I'm surprised the idea just came to me today.

Two more riveting confirmations.

They definitely are operating in Newton but there are just these little hints that it's not them. I'm not sure. I also have been listening to that UHF LTR system either the Boston or Waltham site, I believe the talkgroup is the 1-01-101 you mentioned. That could be it as well but still don't have c...

On my 436, on the conventional NXDN channels do not show TG information. If they do, it either shows "-" or "0".

Re: Logan/MassPort TGs

Thanks guys for the confirmations, I figured that's what they were but I had no ability to confirm.

A bit off topic, as I understand it the Worcester Safety & Security guys are now Massport Fire as of this year. Does ORH still have any law enforcement now other than Troop F?

Re: Massachusetts > Business Radio Systems

Interestingly, both showed timeslot 1. After a while of listening, those are the only 2 talkgroups that I've found. ARINC also operates a Capacity Plus system at Logan that I could've sworn I added to the Wiki but I guess I only added the American Airlines one.
