Re: RDC Network 178 NXDN

I've been able to hear activity on the RDC NXDN system on my 536, just with the RR database, nothing that I've entered manually.

Tomorrow is the day! I think John changed the Breakfast plans to a different restaurant called the Cowbell on South Ave, but I know that is a much smaller place than Nellie Rose, with no parking, so not sure why the decision was made to go there. I shouldn't talk though, since I won't be able to go ...

For those not familiar with it, it's 145.390, CC9. Right now, MA Statewide 3125 is the only one that's set up as a static talkgroup, on TS2. Others you may want to put in on TS2 are local 9, RI 3144, NH 3133. TS1 is usually more for the national stuff, Bridge 3100, TAC 310, 311, 312 (those 3 TACs cr...

Another great NEARFest is in the books! Weather was probably the best we've ever seen. Not a drop of rain for the entire duration of the event. There was barely even a cloud in the sky. The only complaints I've heard have been about sunburn and the annoying bees everywhere. The crowd should have bee...

I think the flea market vendors have been scared away by bad weather on Sunday in the past, so the flea was very small on Sunday. I still enjoyed mys...

I don't believe any Walmart stores stock scanners. Looks like you can just pick them up at the store if ordered from the website.

8/3 dx

It's been a while since we've posted about DX on here. I haven't been monitoring the public safety bands, but the FM broadcast band is open as far down the coast as NC tonight. 94.5 WCMS and 97.1 WYND, among others have been very strong tonight. Go get 'em!

Quincy was on the list of stores that were supposedly staying open. Does this mean all of those stores have closed as well, and they're really completely gone now?

Attendance was down, but honestly, not as much as I feared it might be with how bad the forecast was. I was there for the duration of the event, and had a great time as always. Sure, I got a little wet, but nothing we haven't seen before. NEARFest was not optional!

Pembroke DPW

Pembroke DPW is just DMR on 462.325. In additon to the TG1 on TS1, the Color Code is 5. Analog D411 should be removed.

I also have not heard anything on 460.1375 at all during the storms, I'd say that is safe to remove

I was finally able to catch Pembroke DPW talking again to confirm the color color code, it's 5. Might the editors of the wiki consider calling it DMR instead of the Motorola band name "Mototrbo."

I'm not sure if anyone is planning on gathering for breakfast before hand locally. I'm going to be there early helping out, so I won't be able to.

A Couple DPW Updates

A couple towns need changes in the wiki here on SNE:

East Bridgewater DPW is now on the old FD freq 483.6875 PL 192.8. The FD is now just on 453.5375, so the listing for 483.6875 on the Fire page can be removed.

Pembroke DPW on 462.325 is DMR, TS1 TG1. Not sure about the other 460.1375 frequency
