Re: SDS100 QUESTION

Not without software, no, until you're fast using the favorites editing. If you can plow your way through that process, it can be semi quick.

Question, how is yours on Image rejection? Mine seems to have issues in UHF only with images.

Re: Antenna

It's listed as omni-directional, but any pole mounted (what we in the broadcast industry refer to as "side mount"). Will have some directionality to it. How much is to be seen, but this model I know for a fact has a little pattern to it.

Not much on the P25 system that is not on the analog right now. 2019 is supposed to be the changeover. May not be a lot to listen to after the change though as most users will have encryption at least available.

And CT tends to be a pro-encryption state. Especially in Fairfield County.

Re: Tolland Fire Ops (154.740 Rptr PL CSQ)

Is anyone else can listen and confirm PL CSQ, or whether there is a CTCSS/DCS tone? Is it possible it's crosspatched to some other radio system? This has been on for years. Surprised it's not in the WIKI. It's also never had a PL before either. Always been CSQ. It's a strong repeater that gets out ...

The frequency is dead and even sitting in their yard up there! There has to be someone in the Augusta area on here that knows something?
They may not be using radios. It's a very common thing now a days to see DPW people using push to talk cell phones for comms.

How long has the automated Boston Fire Dispatch channel (The 453.6500 one) been dispatching engines to other cities for mutual aid?

An update to an update.

Bridgewater State University PD are operating on their old frequency (472.6125) in P25 digital now. NAC is $270h like the 453.8250 was.

453.8250 has been silent the whole time monitoring.
