Re: 7/29 DX

Onevoice system has faded out. Got TG 304201 encrypted and 500860 which sounded like a tow company. Things seem to be possibly switching around to the north from here. A few to note: 476.5875 136.5, NYPD Manhattan 476.3875 151.4, NYPD Manhattan 476.6625 100.0, NYPD Bronx 470.7625 N263, Malden MA Pol...

7/29 DX

Monitoring OneVoice 171-3 DMR TRS from Selden (Suffolk County Long Island) NY. CC is 477.8875 and strong here. Off hours but we'll see what we can here. Some NYPD at 476 MHz in there as well, and VHF-HI bands are cranking. Just getting settled for an hour or so of DXing. I'm in the chat dungeon if a...

Re: 07/19 DX

I was a bit surprised to see Nassau County NY using 500 MHz. I'm not sure I've copied Philadelphia from here; probably a bit of a stretch as it's "inland" a bit. I surely have heard plenty of VHF-HI from eastern PA under the right conditions so it's possible. DSD+ is such a handy tool for DX'ing the...

Re: 07/19 DX

Via DSD+ I'm watching the Nassau County NY TRS with a CC of 501.0500. Most TG's appear encrypted but there are exceptions. Pretty cool. DSD+ automatically locks out the ENC TG's.

Re: 07/19 DX

Check the 500-503 T band. Lots of P25 signals there, some ENC, most weak, but viewable and occasionally readable. 500.475, 500.525, 500.875, 501.075, 501.350, 501.550, and more. All from trunked systems I'd say given the different sound of the signal. Without looking yet as I recall there are numero...

Those of us that like to DX in the evening hours should be meeting up in this forum's chat room for real-time exchange of info. Just open the chat room in a new window and continue about your business. You should hear a sound when someone enters and/or sends a message. I go back to the Teamspeak day...

Re: 7/6 DX

Trying to stick to just P25 stuff for tonight, so a few more.

154.9050 N370 Litchfield NH Police
155.5200 N117 Hillsboro County NH Police

Nothing spectacular but signals remain good and strong. A lot of ME analog stuff as well given the 192.8 PL on a number of received signals.

Re: NEAR-Fest XXVIII has been cancelled.

Carroll Hazen that runs Angelino's Sausage House trailer at the hamfest told me back in May when I saw him that he had a feeling this would get cancelled. Hopefully, all will be well for the May event. This is the stuff that sucks the most about Covid-19...other than people dying of course. While w...

Good morning,

Canada is making a visit this morning. Both weather broadcasts on 161.650 and 161.775 are being received here. 775 is the stronger of the two, and in French as I type this.

Google Balloon "Loon" on ADS-B

This is a first for me. I had heard some pilot chatter earlier in the evening about a Google balloon being visible. Then about 1/2 hour ago I noticed an aircraft at 52,900 feet on my ADS-B setup. Lo and behold, it was the balloon hovering over the NH/ME border and moving SE at about 45 knots. Pretty...
