I found all of that information before I put up my last post, Bill. Which is where I found the license modification information. What I didn't have was the LCN and OTA orders for the frequencies in question. Which I was able to get via actual listening to the frequencies. Wiki has been updated. Unkles has a number of different licenses, so it will take a while to sort out which sites are using which frequencies as the actual usage seems to be a bit loosey goosey from what the FCC shows. At least in some cases.

Been picking up what seems to be a new site (to us) for OneVoice from the Heights in Concord, NH. Frequency is 452.5750 with Color Code 5 and Site number of 67. Network ID is 171.

It's not super strong, so I'm guessing maybe in Goffstown. It's been a control channel for a week or so now and I couldn't find any FCC licenses for the area.

Barely getting it down here. Not nearly strong enough to get any data.

WQYH418, Central VT Communications, one of the OneVoice Partners, has that frequency for NHhttp://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsApp/UlsSear ... ey=3851756

A note about searching the FCC database. if you use the page here:
http://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsApp/UlsSear ... vanced.jsp
don't put a state into the first page as it only returns those licensees with the business in that state. Instead, leave the State line as it is, "ALL", enter the frequency in the appropriate location then scroll down to the bottom and choose "GEOSEARCH".
On the next page, in State/County, choose the State and then choose "SEARCH".

That's a cool tip, Chris. I've noticed with some of the newer commercial trunk systems, the licensee can be in one state, but that there are transmitter locations in other states This will make it a lot easier to find frequencies.

Also, you can use the CTRL key to select multiple States and/or Counties. You can play with the other Geosearch choices to limit the results even more. It can slow a search down but can give more precise results.

I do choose Part 90 in the first page to keep out the microwave, etc results.

I've just found a control channel on 461.7875 that is showing as Site 56. Very strong signal here on the Cape. I'll keep an eye on this one. CC=8. Neighbors are showing as 9 (Sag Harbor NY), 26 (Farmington CT), 52 (Glastonbury CT), and 61 (Abington MA), quite a "diverse" group of neighbors...

It does not appear to me that the bands are open, so I wonder if this is a new site that's local to my area. Only time will tell I guess. Discovered this using my Airspy R2 and DSD+.

Nothing up here, so it must be down your way. 900 was "open" earlier although that's probably not the right term. Signal strength on ICE Site 32 is dropping quickly.

Looks like a new license for Barnstable. Repeater Network LLC is the big license holder for the OneVoice Network

Thanks, Chris. Back when my tower first went up I could climb to the top of it and see part of the Oak St. antenna farm, so that explains the strong signal. I've got DSD+ running in the background today so I'll report on any TG activity, although as I recall other sites in this area have been relatively inactive.

I'll also update the Wiki when I get a moment.

Can these 2 frequencies be programmed in a 996P2 capable of DMR? Conventional or trunk system?

Mark, they're part of a Connect Plus DMR trunked system. I'm still trying to puzzle it out. I'm hoping the control channel will rotate through all of the frequencies over the next several days and that I can get the LCN order as a result.

So it's not yet known how to program it? Is it receivable via scanner?

It gets programmed in as a DMR Trunked system. It is a Motorola MotoTrbo Connect Plus. Some basic privacy in use but the majority of the TGs are clear.

Must running some serious LOW power. Seeing maybe a little trace in the noise here.

Scott, Five Star Transportation of Southwick has the regular school bus transportation contract for Barnstable Public Schools starting this school year. They are on the One Voice system in the Springfield area, so it's a good bet they might pop up on this site.

Good info; that's almost certainly who it is. The comms on the one and only active TG are definitely bus related. I'll continue to monitor.

Only two of the frequencies on the license are active, as mentioned above. The CC appears to rotate on its appropriate slot on each at about noontime daily.

From a recent read of a One Voice radio. It's a large text file that shows all of the frequencies by site, including Control Channels. Some sites are not identified as to location.
There are actually two lists. One is the read from the radio, the other is formatted for use with DSD+.

I've zipped it up since there doesn't appear to be a way to upload a .txt file.

Note that this is not my work, but I'm not sure if the contributor wants to be identified. If so, I'm sure he'll PM me and let me know.
My apologies to him for sitting on this for so long.

ETA: Hmmm, apparently I can't add a file at this time. I'll have to work on that. In the meantime if anyone wants a a copy, PM me.

I know that someone sent me a PM about the list, but for some reason it shows as "on hold" and I can't access it. Scott is busy with family stuff right now, so it will have to wait until he has the time to do whatever needs to be done to release it.

If you send it out, remember to mention that the Site names may not be accurate as that is taken from my own file automatically. Also, the information that is programmed into the radios does not represent active sites, they may not yet be live. And last, having frequencies listed, doesn't mean every frequency is active at every site. I suspect that sites that have frequencies other than the 454.xxxxx ones, have those in case of issues with the other channels. The 454 channels are licensed by region and not by specific site.
