Re: MSCommNet SDS100 reception question

Since you are using it in the same area I'm in (Wells) how does the SDS100 do on the conventional analog and P25 public safety frequencies in Southern Maine and Rockingham county? Thanks, Gordon It works great on the Portland P25 system. Not so good on analog VHF Cumberland County Sheriff and area ...

I use ARC-XT PRO all of the resulting data files are .rsf files. When I try to attach here it keeps telling me it's an invalid file format.

Re: MSCommNet SDS100 reception question

Hello, I just purchased the SDS100.... so far, ok. At my home, I can pick up most communications from the Gray RCC with the unit on my desk. In my travels along the Turnpike from Gray to Kittery though, I hear almost nothing. I keep it in my car without an external antenna so perhaps that is the is...

Re: Boston Dispatching other cities?

How long has the automated Boston Fire Dispatch channel (The 453.6500 one) been dispatching engines to other cities for mutual aid?

Hearing incident radio traffic on 151.7975R PL 192.8 this morning, first time I've heard it used for incident traffic. Sounds like the changeover to new frequency has occurred?

I'm interested in hearing from owners of either TRX-1 or TRX-2 who also own either a GRE PSR 500 or 600. My question is are the TRX 1 and 2 better on rejecting the intermod/overload issues that the GRE's have?

Thank you in advance for the information.

Hello All, New user and new to scanning. I'm wondering if anyone knows what is being transmitted on Chelsea PD 2 (471.2375)?

I don't have any insight as to why but it has been happening periodically for about a year now. It's not continuous you will hear them for anywhere from a few hours to a couple days and then nothing for quite some time. Usually when you hear the PD you will also hear the FD on 37712, they are much l...

Is Andover Fire still operating on 483.5875 with a tone of 146.2? Used to hear to them not too long ago on this frequency but as of recently, I haven't heard them at all. From my location in Boston area they sounded very weak earlier in the week. Could have been running on their backup site? Gordon

It appears that 11088 DCR Fire 2 is not repeating statewide. When 7-0 and 8-0 transmit I'm only hearing their messages via Zone 8 nothing on Zone 5.

Currently testing on 851.5125 8 TAC 91 sounds like its patched to Marine 17 and Federal LE-10. Currently testing with USCG Sector Boston and one of their cutters. Marine 17 156.85 is for State/local government use.

Unsure if this is related to the UTAC testing posted yesterday.
