2018 Blarney Blowout 3/3/18

#1 Post by cdgordon » 03 Mar 2018 14:08

This weekend is the 2018 UMASS Amherst Blarney Blowout. Last 3 years have been much quieter than the previous 3 although hearing an arrest as I am typing this.
3200 people in a concert that is out at 1500hrs. Couple remarks about quieter than last year.

Here are a couple frequencies/channels that I have logged so far today:
MSP E-PTL-2 (2093) Calling EOC, unknown function, possibly MSP resources
MSP SOPS 1 patched to VTAC13 (2085)
VTAC13 - 158.7375 156.7 (Patched to MSP SOPS 1)
Amherst PD 460.1500 173.8
Amherst FD 151.3850 186.2
