Nxdn 464.3875

#1 Post by disp617 » 03 Jan 2018 15:38

Receiving a NXDN system on 464.3875 in the Worcester area. Only logical license I could find is this http://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsApp/UlsSear ... ey=3164859

I do not know enough about NXDN systems to decipher it. DSD shows Ran 5 and only getting radio ids so i'm not sure if this is a conventional system. I only seem to hear school buses on it.

That is more than likely to be part of this system, although I'm not sure what you are seeing Ran5. The control channel I'm monitoring right now is 463.9875, but I haven't seen much activity. It's possible that there is another site, but information is sketchy on some of these newer systems. Are you seeing a Channel number in the DSD+ information?

I'm a bit on the fringe for Framingham. Brimstone lane is Nobscott Hill on the Sudbury/Framingham line, site of a big tower.

You might want to try that 463.9875 frequency and see what activity you find.

I did a search on the FCC site and found some frequencies licensed to Quimby for Parker Hill Ave in Boston. I'm getting activity on 462.06875, RAN 5. DSD+ shows it as a conventional NXDN traffic and it appears to be a special needs school van service in Lynn and vacinity. Mention of the Washington School and Western Ave, both of which are in Lynn.

464.3875 is a conventional NXDN repeater on Nobscott Hill in Sudbury used by NRT Transportation buses for Hudson & Marlboro Public Schools. The RAN (Radio Access Number which is similar to a PL tone in an analog system) is 5.

NRT Transportation uses 463.5875 for the Northboro & Southboro Public Schools with a RAN of 5.
