Analog today. Maybe they were testing for a change over.

Correction, I'm receiving Gloucester PD. Which is pretty odd how far away I am from there.

Conditions seem very strong to the north this evening.

I heard about their change from an inside source and then confirmed it by reception.

Tri-College Campus PD

So while in the Happy Valley last night, I noticed something a little unusual, but it may be tied into the joint police operation between Hampshire (Amherst), Mt. Holyoke (S. Hadley) and Smith College (Northampton). On 452.0125R, licensed to Hampshire College, I heard a security check on TG 30 for t...

Been locked on this one for weeks now [evenings] and not a PEEP from Weymouth All morning there has been strange activity on 154.2950 / 203.5 First there were these transmissions that were echoing.

WMLEC Berkshire County

So several years ago, WMLEC was setup to operate through the Berkshire County Police Dispatch frequency (153.965) with a PL of 206.5. This was last confirmed in the early 2010's. However it appears that when the UHF system went live, the VHF link went dark. The last few trips to the Berkshires I cop...

The problem isn't that posts are showing up as unread, just ...

Re: New Post Count, not dropping [unread] ??

Bill,

If this happens again, go to the board index, and on the top right, there is a link. "Marked forums read", will clear it.
I've seen this happen occasionally on the other forum I am on that uses PHPBB. It has to do with cookie handling.

Re: Uniden SDS100 Scanner

I don't think that Uniden will come up with an external charger. They're likely to run up against that CA law about chargers. Which I don't understand. Without seeing what the battery pack looks like, it's not possible to say if some other form of charger will work. It sounds like most other issues...

Re: Help!

Did you enter it as a P25 trunk?
Make sure it is that and not a MOT 800/900 plan.

Also make sure you have TGID's entered in. If not, set it to open or search for IDs.

Re: Adapter vs jumper

You're going to have more loss on that PL259 connector than the jumper. That tiny jumper's loss will be almost unnoticeable for standard scanner band reception. Definitely in a mobile environment, the loss is minimal versus the stress of a big connecting adapter on the scanner. If it were my choice,...
