Goodbye Homer's Nuclear Plant - Somerset Tower Implosion

Might be worth watching although the weather is going to be lousy. Unfortunately I won't be able to attend, but likely good scanner traffic too.

W40BO-D moves to ch26 after Repack not Ch28. As far as I know Ch28 remains empty at least in Boston.
Geez! Who did that??

Television Repack Thread

So for those of you who are unfamiliar, or vaguely familiar, we are about to enter a second time where a lot of changes are going to happen to the broadcast television landscape. As the results of a congressional order, a reverse (or "incentive") auction was performed a few years ago, and 94 MHz of ...

I am hearing EPFD on their UHF channel 1 and RISCON at this time.
Wasn't hearing them the night I posted that. But they returned on the UHF, but appears as if RISCON is their primary now.

Gotta enable those banks :) Mike, Most of the RI/MA border city and towns still use it. Yeah I am aware of that. I made a mistake on my end, which is why I was not receiving anything. Carry on, I'll be fine... haha. Orr monitor the wrong intercity frequency to the wrong talkgroup... :rolleyes:

Are either the 158.9700 or 154.2800 used anymore?

I entered the new MSP Talkgroup 1360 into my scanner and received a transmission via F-PTL-3.

So it appears to be operational.
Tom, I merged this in with the existing topic that was started on this TG.

Thanks.

I can confirm today that talkgroup 85 appeared on the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Interoperability Radio System. So do we identify 1360 analog and 85 digital as F-PTL-3?

85 x 16 = 1360. So if 1360 is F-PTL-3, then 85 should be too...

We sure do. However information isn't put into the WIKI until it's monitored and confirmed as being used by a separate receiver/decoder.

Re: Help to ID

463.700 DMR Color Code 9. I get intermittent decode of the signal, so I'm not 100% sure who is using it. The TG is 6600, although others display, but I think that's data error. Sounds like a maintenance operation. I'm guessing south of Boston, but that's about as specific as I can be. Did you check...

I too picked up the SDS200. Audio is great... But, the overload it experiences on VHF is AWFUL! On my 536 and every other scanner in the past, I've been able to receive the WX stations on 162.400 (RI), 162.425 (Cape Ann), and 162.525 (NH) just fine. On the SDS200, they're hardly there at all, or ju...
