New Cap+ system on 461.0250

#1 Post by garys » 25 Aug 2017 15:39

As often happens while looking for one thing, I stumble on another.

Today I found a Cap+ rest channel on 461.025. CC is 11.

There are two possibilities from looking at license data. One is in Georgetown and the other is licensed in Brockton.

Signal strength seems strong for Georgetown and weak for Brockton.

I have to separate systems set up in DSD+ in an attempt to try to see who it is.

RDC Communications (Brockton)
The FCC information shows emissions as NXDN.

Frequency LCN OTA

461.01250, 1, 1/2 Current Rest Channel
462.53125, ?, ???
463.90000, ?, ???


Licensed to Quimby in Georgetown MA

461.0125, 1, 1/2, Current Rest Channel
463.0000, ?, ???
463.8000, ?, ???

TG active are 1, 2 and 3, ARS is used, as well as RAS.

TG 1 is a hotel. It uses text messaging as well as voice. I've seen several messages for service or repairs in specific guest rooms.

I haven't heard enough traffic yet to get a sense of what type of company or companies is using it.

I'm starting to strongly suspect that this is a OFT system for the Marriott hotel in Quincy at Crown Colony. As it happens, I'll be at Crown Colony next week and will be able to confirm that.

Finally got to Quincy to track this down. It's the Boston Marriott Quincy Hotel on Crown Colony Drive. I sat across the street with my portable set up and no antenna and received full signal. I'll do a Wike update as soon as I get some time. Briefly, it's a single frequency, two OTA channel, Cap+ with four talk groups observed.
