Mike maybe you can explain more about what this failure caused. I know they are climbing again today did this mean folks had to switch back to their old assignments to go back to Cedar St so they could take apart Cabot Street??

Re: National Emergency Broadcast test set for Wednesday

That's because this test was delivered over the FEMA PEP system so they have their own special ENDEC that takes over at the WBZ transmitter site. However the regular WBZ Endec in Medford doesn't know enough that when it gets it from a receiver just like any other LP2 station to try and relay it. So ...

Re: Worcester P25 800MHz Trunked (unknown talk groups need identifying)

I just saw TG 691 (which I had as DCR Field Ops but I guess that's wrong) come up on the 700MHz overlay in Boston with the same audio that was going out on MEMA UHF 471.6875 NAC606 in Boston with a Severe Thunderstorm Warning so once again they seemed to be simulcasting across the console. But 691 o...

Re: ICE MotoTRBO TRS Decoding Project

There is no Industrial site on Prospect Hill in Waltham. As you know the Antico tower was removed after the battle with the city so only the city's site remains there now. You have the American Tower sites across the highway on Bear Hill and another tower that you can see to the east a little north ...

Re: MSP - Lower Basin moving to Upper Basin [Brighton]

They got rid of the reasonably new upper on Soldiers Field Road after Harvard offered them big money for the land. They moved the upper to an office building on Leo Birmingham Parkway which they are probably paying rent for? So in the long run this probably makes sense. Land in Brighton is getting r...

These systems are all tied into the core in Framingham and that is where MEMA dispatches from. See Bill's post above it was probably a console mistake.
