Re: Rockland Police - Gone?

Ah, I think I know the reason for this....OK, my error, but strange people in Rockland reporting this too. Anyway, are they still using 871? That will confirm my error. Sorry for the scare if that's the case.

Rockland Police - Gone?

There are reports that Rockland Police is gone from both their analog and digital channels. I've listened over the last 24 hours and have received nothing. Not sure if it's antenna issue for me but I don't think so as many people are reporting this. A friend from the area said on the Rockland Facebo...

Re: Mass DOT

I had forgotten about those new low band channels for MassDOT. Go low-band! Thanks for that franciedog. I'll program those in. Thanks too Gary for the TG 661. Will look into that.

Re: Help finding certain freqs in greater Boston

I know that used to be them but I hadn't heard that for years. Do you know if that covers the building and the shopping plaza there both?

Anyway, thanks, I'll take a listen.

Mass DOT

Anyone listening during the storm to MassDOT? I'm hearing some scattered traffic on low band (still my favorite band). Anyway, it's very limited. Heard nothing in the last couple of hours. I know it's never been used that much, just expected more today. And I'm hearing nothing on the state DOT trunk...

Re: TD Garden

Yep, originally it was set up LCN 1 was the lowest frequency and it stepped up from there. I asked for it to be fixed to what you guys had here and it works -- for a few transmissions a day. One day when I was in downtown Boston near the Garden about 4 weeks ago I was listening with the correct LCN ...

TD Garden

I'm confused about the TD Garden DMR System. I have a very strong signal and the transmissions are coming in great, but I receive only a few transmissions over any 24 hour period. And strangely none during events. I know it's the Garden, that's clear from what they do say. Are they off repeater norm...

Re: Help finding certain freqs in greater Boston

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 co...

Re: Help finding certain freqs in greater Boston

This is both the fun and the annoyance that comes with trying to identify rented frequencies/talkgroups, it basically comes down to educated guessing or hoping that they say their company name on the air. Give TG 1-10-101 on the Dispatch LTR Boston site a try, it's definitely a school bus company o...

Re: Help finding certain freqs in greater Boston

Thanks for the info. I'll give that a try. A separate question, maybe best to be put in another topic but here goes. I've been listening to the TD Garden system. I listened tonight during a Celtics game and there was absolutely zero activity. After the game I heard a few communications. It's definit...

Re: Help finding certain freqs in greater Boston

That's correct for Eastern Bus, Network 171 Site 69. That talkgroup is one of only a few regularly active on that system on the Boston site. I just left my 436 recording last night into this morning on the Galleria Mall Security TG and can confirm it's still active with traffic that confirms it's s...

Re: D&D Dispatch

A number of years ago I rode in a Veterans Taxi and asked the driver to key up to check the freq. He was really hesitant to do so. He said that he was warned by management to only use the two-way in an emergency, otherwise use the cab data unit that they have. I gathered that they must be charged fo...

Thanks very much OceanNora. Great info, very much appreciated. Here's another channel I'm interested in. The Longwood Medical Area has a network that all the area hospitals are on, is it still run by MASCO?. There's a channel for the hospitals to communicate during emergencies. It's not the city of ...

Re: Help finding certain freqs in greater Boston

Regarding the Eastern Bus Co info, is this the system you're referring to OceanNora? System ID: Network 171/Site 69 - MA - Boston, with freqs 464.825, 472.450 and 472.050? I assume that's a MotoTrbo system? Strange, I used to hear that Galleria channel all the time and haven't in a while. It was suc...

By the way, I'm pretty certain 464.425 D205 is the Copley Place Mall and not the Cambridgeside Galleria security.

Hi All, I'd very much appreciate it if anyone could give me a hand finding the freqs for these agencies/companies. I think this is one of the joys and draws of the hobby -- researching and listening and ferreting out these difficult to find channels. I've tried but have had no luck with these: 1) Re...

Wow, does anyone know how that got posted? It's fine, just surprised. As you may know I was the publisher of that book. Was very proud of it.
