They are doing a lot of work on the bridge with multiple lane closures. Possibly a RIDOT crew?

Re: Austin Antenna

The Spectra is a great antenna, but most people do not follow the instructions for mounting it and get less than expected results which results in misguided criticism of the antenna. People don't realize there's a three step process. You have to remove the NMO nut and loosen the spring first, then p...

Re: Encrypted 484.8750

The Attleboro location is the water tower where the police/fire repeaters are located. I'll give it a listen to see if it's active on that location as well.

Re: Vanishing Ambulance Services

Just a bit on Eastern. They made the decision to shut down in the Spring of 2018. The last day of operation was July 13, 2018. Costs and reimbursement rates were a big part of the decision. Unlike many other ambulance services that have stopped their operation, it was planned, the regular patients w...

Re: VHF/UHF Unication G3!

(also no connection to antenna connector on amplified base). I believe that if you search the RR forums, Paul at Unication has reported that both antennas do indeed make contact through the amplified base and that the initial belief/reports were wrong. In my case, most local stuff is UHF, but I'm c...

Bill,

When they went live, all of the 700 freqs were good and used in the described manner on the fireground. I will try to reconfirm, but I don't think they've changed anything.

It was a PSR-600 listening on the EDACS system. I tried my WS-1080 on the discone the other day and got nothing. Next time up up on the tower I'll point the Yagi back and see if the new system is better.

Re: Unication G5 Dual Band 450-520 & 700-800MHz Voice Pager-Receiver

Something worth noting. I just plugged the G5 into my discone and am receiving the Worcester System loud and clear. Even with an 800 mhz. yagi 10 feet higher and pointed at Worcester I was never able to receive them. This is definitely a hot little receiver.

Re: Boston Dispatching other cities?

They aren't dispatching other cities, when fire alarm enters the incident in the CAD for tracking and moves units accordingly, the voice allocution on Channel 5 announces the move. Been going on for a few years at least.

Re: OneVoice TG 100600 Unk Ambulance provider

I noticed the unit number range, but not that it was even numbers only. The range concurs with what I've been hearing. The odd thing is that it seems they only do calls in Chicopee. Unless there is another radio system they also use. I've been listening to something else for the past few days, but ...
