Re: Help finding certain freqs in greater Boston

John, for some reason I don't think the 139 Mhz is there anymore [Waltham] Thanks Bill, I will investigate. On The Pru (Boston Properties) I was not aware they had made any change. The only change I have seen visually is that some of the security folks carry small Kenwood radios and less Motorola. ...

NFL Headsets

I noticed today that it looks like the NFL has dropped using Motorola portables as part of the coach-quaterback headset communication. It looks like the coaches now wear a kind of ruggedized wireless intercom type transmitter. Looks like a tougher version of the type used in stage and TV shows for w...

Re: Bit Off Topic

They flew right over me while I was waiting for the bus in newton. Look like they were just following the Pike into Boston. Quite a bit of noise and I was hoping they were ours but it was getting dark so I couldn't see them well.

Re: DMR use with public safety.

I have both JFR and there is no way you can tell me that DMR recovered audio sounds better than P25? P25 is way better both in errors and voice recognition. There's also no comparison with a mid tier radio like an XPR vs APX or XTL. And I have never seen a CDM (bottom tier) in PS vehicle but again p...

Re: DMR public safety

I think its a bad idea as well both for interop and if grants come along that you might be able to use as you now have a system that is incompatible with that equipment. I'd think a slower convert to P25 which is what most other communities are doing would be a better long-term solution.

Stow MA PD using DMR

Stow PD 155.595R is reportedly using DMR. Yes Not P25 but DMR?? I'm too far away to monitor myself but this is has been reported to me by folks that can hear it. I don't have any Color Code or Talkgroup info yet but I hope to try and get that soon.

Not sure what the event is but I don't think its Head Of The Charles related? Events 3 has Mike units that did location checks at 8:30am with a Field Comm unit. Transportation units than did checks on Events 4. Not sure what the Event is yet.
