Re: RDC Network 178 observations

I've yet to get any thing on Sandwich either. Funny thing --in the old 900 LTR days, Sandwich was very active with traffic covering Plymouth/Sandwich/Bourne. Don't understand why there's not a peep on it. Nice info on Orleans, may be just out of reach for me. Jeff

Smuggler's Notch and Stowe Mountain Resort

I recently came back from Smuggler's Notch from a little vacation. Finally got a chance to clean up my notes from last week and 2017. I entered my findings into the Vermont Wiki under Recreational Facilities. As I am not a skier, I don't go up there in the winter. It is still a nice get away at the ...

WQWW680 was granted back on 2015 but I don't have anything in my Island notes. 860 is the Dispatch with units Delta, Oscar, Whiskey. Delta. Dukes Cty Oscar. Oak Bluffs ...

Canal Power Plant

It appears that the Cape Cod Canal Power Plant has taken one of its VHF frequencies over to DMR. KZX716 has 158.175 , 158.235, and 158.250. As of late the 158.175 looks looks like DMR. Discussions about valves, switches, pressures etc. Will have to see if they switched over the other 2. Jeff

WQKI755 Centerville/Osterville/Marstons Mills FD

It appears that COMM FD has added another ""tri"-mulcast to their frequencies. WQKI755 was approved on 04/02/2019. The license shows 3 new freqs, 851.7750, 852.5500, and 853.2625. So far the 853.2625 123.0 has been the only one that I have heard. They still simulcast on the 453.7375 192.8 but lately...

This T/G has been around for a bit. It has been referred to as the "Hot Line". As mentioned.... Daily radio checks/ Roll Call with all Cape / Islands / State Agencies . I guess you could almost compare to a BAPERN. Jeff
