Re: 7/6 DX

Hello, I am getting that IDAS (NXDN48) Type-D trunked system on 160.275. DSD+ is decoding it as Area 0 Channel 1. It is not part of a multi-site system. I also noticed a P25 control signal on 160.350 from Pleasant Mountain, Denmark, ME Site:92751.077-67.67 NAC 43E: NL: 33.33(161.04) 35.35(155.655) 6...

6/21 Night Opening to Maine

Hello,

MSCOMMNET Loggings
I am getting a P25 Control Channel on 160.350. Not very good decode, but I got some Group calls on the 711 talkgroup. Likely Pleasant Mountain, Denmark.

173.425 is a better control channel Site 61.

Hello,

A good day out despite the cold weather and the road condition of Rte. 18. I did not buy anything, but it was great talking to several attendees.

Re: NEAR-Fest is not Optional!!! Oct 11th & 12th 2019

Hello,

Enjoyed NEAR-Fest on Friday and even found something to buy.

Weather conditions were a lot better at NEAR-Fest compared to down south. Ski Areas suffer from the same problem. They can have plenty of snow, but people do not think about skiing unless there is snow down south.

Re: Hamvention

Hello,

Centerville is a pretty good location. I stayed slightly further away in Miamisburg and travel was no problem. I got on I-675 North and got off at US 35 East exit. There are exits off of US 35 to go to the fairgrounds or the satellite parking lots.

Have fun!

Hello,

A ham friend mentioned to me that 10 Meters and 6 Meters are open, so there is possible VHF-Low DX. I am still at work so I can not check.

Hello,

The DVB-T sticks can be used because someone discovered a feature of the chipset that allows raw I/Q samples to be retrieved. It does not appear that the chips used in the Hauppauge support this.
