Re: Trip Out West

Great. Thanks. Do you have any idea who the other ambulance company on that system might be?

Re: Trip Out West

We have that on the Wiki here, including 463.250 and the TG. The question I had is if they are still using the system or if MedStar had absorbed them. Which is what it appears has happened as clicking on a link to Pioneer brought me to the MedStar website.

Trip Out West

My wife wanted to go to Northampton today, so we took a road trip. I had the SDS200 on in the truck and listened while we were driving around. I didn't have time to sit and listen for a prolonged period of time. It's sort of quite without Springfield PD, but that's how it goes. Anyway, the only thin...

Re: NAC programming

The "h" indicates that the NAC is in hex format. It's not removable because the scanner adds it into the display.

If he's using DSDPlus, which is what it looks like, that appears to be a pseudo network ID. I generally use a four digit number for that, but there is no requirement other than that there be one for DSDPlus to track Cap+ systems. The system requirements for trunking in DSDPlus are, Protocol, Network...

Re: BCD996XT vs. BCD996p2

Current repair price is $89.95, including shipping for the 996XT. I paid that to repair a loss of reception issue with my 536HP. Along with the latest firmware upgrade, I was so pleased with the results that I decided to keep that scanner and retire my WS1065 instead.

Re: Weymouth Police Digital

Thanks for the information. I think I've heard their Channel 2 once since they've had it. I think "force voting" is making that particular site be the one that the console hears. That would be a way of testing each receiver site under controlled circumstances to make sure that they are all on line. ...

Something like that is possible. I think Vital Ambulance has gone to a similar service.

Re: Winthrop PD P25

There will be more, including at least one more on the North Shore within a month or so. That's a tease! :) I expect as systems upgrade hardware, they will be moving to digital. It's also interesting that towns are upgrading T band equipment since they are all supposed to be moving off of 470.000 an...

Re: Vanishing Ambulance Services

On the same topic, has anyone heard anything on any of the Action Ambulance channels? I've picked up traffic on their UHF channel for western MA on a few trips out that way, but nothing for the frequencies listed here in the Wiki.

I wonder if they've moved to one of those Nextel like PTT services?

That's interesting. I'll have to put it in and take a listen. Fallon is part of "Transformative Health Care" along with Lifeline Ambulance. Lifeline is encrypted, but Fallon never has been.

Re: Television Repack Thread

So, another rescan may increase the number of channels received? I know that this is a ten phase process, but I couldn't see a schedule for when each phase occurs. It also looks like different regions are part of the phases, but I couldn't place dates with regions or phases. So 7 and 56 are combined...

Re: Television Repack Thread

I did a rescan Saturday afternoon and received all three of those channels with no issue. Since I'm using inside antennas as a back up system, I don't expect to get every channel, but the number of stations I can get surprised me. The TV upstairs is better than the one downstairs, but I still get mo...
