Re: Boston calling Harvard Stadium

Hello, Looking at the Color Code pattern and the license, I suspect they use Color Code 1 for 461.0375, Color Code 2 for 461.0625, etc..., The sequence is likely restarted with Color Code 1 for 462.8875. ICE does a similar Color Code numbering scheme based on the site number for their multi-site DMR...

Re: Wynn / Encore casino, Everett

Hello, Over the past week I have seen very light activity on talkgroup 18 by just a handful of units. The signal has been weak with my log-periodic beam, so I could not get any recordings with my scanner. I tried a 800 MHz beam and it seems better. I will let it run over tomorrow and see the results...

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!

Re: Wynn / Encore casino, Everett

Hello,

I was over at Costco Everett and searched 800 MHz with my SDS100. I got a really strong DMR Tier 3 control channel on 857.8625 Color Code 0. The SysID is 1. I am going to setup a radio tomorrow and see if there is any talkgroup activity.

May 14, 2019 - Possible VHF-Low opening

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.

I still have to go through my recordings for the last couple of days to see if I can get testing on the OneVoice channels. So far it looks like the same setup as last year.

We will not get an answer, but I do wonder what happened. Maybe management pulled the plug because development costs were getting greater than the expected return.

Re: 462.0625 - New

Hello,

I should check my notes and recomfirm my receiving years ago of two DMR repeaters on the same UHF frequency with the same color code, same timeslot, and same talkgroup. I seem to remember it was CC1, TS1, TG 1. The repeaters had different signal levels.

This seemed to be drill day as there was another drill in Andover. I thought maybe there was an additional one at the Airport, but it could have been related to the MCCA one.
