Re: Westfield area PVTA frequencies?

There is more to the PVTA communications than the Pelham Trunked UMASS system but that is all that has been confirmed. Many of the frequencies on this license (including the one you had found) https://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsApp/UlsSearch/license.jsp?licKey=1920250 are unmonitorable data from what I as...

Re: Hartford Fire 800 Dispatch Simulcast?

Hartford FD Dispatch appeared today on the Connecticut Land Mobile Radio Network (CLMRN)(aka CT SW P25 system). They are using a P25 Talkgroup in Phase 2 mode and are only on the Hartford site. Since this talkgroup doesn't follow the cities and town Talkgroup convention, I would suspect it is a patc...

carefully listen to see if it is a NOAA weather station or FM music. During a pause when the transmitter is still open, you can sometimes tell what the interfering signal is.

Re: Middletown CT P25 TRS

Testing continues and they have added a patch to, or simply a rebroadcast of, the 155.3700 MPD/PPD channel. That would be TGID 101. TGID 200 & 202 popped up today but I am too far away to get decent voice. TGID 911 & 912 are still in use for testing.

I think those were all added around the time of rebanding, 2012 perhaps? As you show, about half are secure talk groups. the others are clear. When the P25 upgrade is complete, it is looking like many of the interop talkgroups will be realigned to a new template. This is probably why there are some ...

As to the hardware: Depending on what you are looking to monitor, you can get by with one SDR for the non trunked digital formats. The computer requirements are not a lot but obviously, it will depend on what else you are doing with the machine. To do trunking, you need 2 dongles, the $25 ones will ...
