The fun of being a DB Admin. Getting to listen to some of the most boring scanner traffic there is.

I believe these guys are D315. I haven't been able to positively ID, though, so I've held back.

Re: Barnstable Schools Unlicensed Operation

The Agent found that Barnstable High School was operating a Motorola XPR-8400 repeater on the Land Mobile Radio Service frequency 463.375 MHz That's not a "We bought these walkie-talkies on Amazon and didn't know we needed a license" mistake.

Re: Falmouth DPW

On the 536, a way to quickly get TG/Slot info is to hit the Quick Search function.

"channel", enter the frequency (but don't hit enter) , "channel" again.

One of the nice things with the SDS series of scanners is it displays this info on all standard conventional entries.

East Providence DPW on ICE

Picked up East Providence DPW on ICE, TG 419 tonight. Site was the Fall River one. Possibly EP DPW, talking about their routes on Willet Ave, hitting Bullocks Point, Metropolitan Parkway, and getting down to the Barrington town line.

Re: TD Garden

What is the LCN order? I believe the order from RR was messed up at one point. I'd also give scanning the frequencies conventionally to see if it's a tracking issue. I fixed that LCN order on RRDB after confirming it myself, and monitoring the system. I think you and I did this pretty close to the ...

Scituate PD P25

Scituate PD have switched to P25 with a NAC of $545.

So if you run the channel with no NAC programmed, you'll either hear New Bedford ($232) or Scituate ($545).

RRDB and Wiki are updated.

Re: Unid dpw - 460.5375

What type of transmissions have you heard on 460.5375 that made you believe this was a DPW ? Honestly, at the time, when I first heard it, I heard the discussions of pumps and pressures, so I assumed based on that, then really just ignored the channel till recently. More recently, it's easy to tell...

And of course, some towns have had enough common sense to leave their Gamewell fire alarm systems in, so those act as a reliable backup as well.
