Cape Cod Mall Security now DMR

Good morning,

It appears that Cape Cod Mall has moved their operations to DMR. Confirmed this AM. They are still on their frequency of 462.450. Color Code 9. Only active talkgroup I have seen thus far is 100, numerous different radio ID's.

Re: SDS200 Observations

I was talking about per-channel filters in one of the threads too and it was brought up that at some point enough may be enough in that regard, in other words, the amount of capacity that takes up in system memory might bring the thing to a crawl. So I think it's a great idea but I also think maybe ...

Re: SDS200 Observations

It usually trickles down to SNE too....but as Mike says RR is the place for that, and the subsequent discussion is sometimes productive and at times hilarious. They are (over)due for a new one....I truly hope they will add a fast way to get to filters. That's a biggie from where I sit. But I'm adjus...

Registrations

Suggestion to legitimate hobbyists that are far outside of the New England area but want to register, and you are surely encouraged to do so. This site gets crapped on by registrations from places that, well to be nice "quite clearly have no interest in the radio hobby in New England". When we revie...

Re: NE Frequency Database Updated!!!

Not sure what happened there. That data is from the same file. One of the steps along the way after import into Excel is to change the column to numbers and run it out to 5 to the right of the decimal point. So I'm not sure what zigged when it should have zagged there. I'll scroll through next time ...

Re: NXDN Network 178 Site 13

After periodically monitoring this system via Airspy/SDR#/DSD+ for several days, it appears that it has yet to have any activity on it. No channels populate the channel activity window of DSD+....so it could be a work in progress. The signal is strong enough at my house that I would surely be seeing...

Re: WQKI755 Centerville/Osterville/Marstons Mills FD

I confirmed the activity on 853.2625 123.0 and watching the spectrum at the same time I don't see activity on the other frequencies. Interesting they have 3.

Yep, and Gary not hearing it up his way either. Sadly it's too weak from here and as we know a good part of the traffic on these systems goes dark after business hours. I'll run one of my Airspys on it tonight while watching the :Bruins: hopefully take care of business....

Re: NXDN Network 178 Site 13

Now that I hit send on the last post I now see that it has indeed again decoded as "Current Site: L178-13 with a RAN of 13. So I'm seeing it from 2 different locations on the Cape. Not sure which signal was stronger. Maybe it is from downcape? Next time I get out that way I'll investigate.

Re: NXDN Network 178 Site 13

The signal, a NXDN 4800 baud control channel, is present as I type this. It is too weak to be decoded by DSD+ but my ear tells me what it is. The other day, and I'll try again from home tonight, it showed as stated, 178-13, with neighboring sites of 1 (Yarmouth), 3 (Plymouth), 6 and 7 (yet to be det...

Re: NE Frequency Database Updated!!!

Only the Private Land Mobile area of the database is used, so MC is not in it. I'll consider adding it during the next update as it's probably easier than the Wiki page which should likely be retired. On another note.... I have now added all of Long Island NY, all Boroughs of New York City, and West...

NXDN Network 178 Site 13

Hi, Anyone hearing a NXDN control channel on 460.025? It's moderately strong here and showing up as L178-13 with neighbors of L178-1, 3, 6, and 7. FCC licensing has always been wonky on these systems but using the updated NEFD I see City of New Bedford and Town of Orleans as area possibilities but t...

Thanks for the filter info. It's going to be interesting to see what else can be done with this scanner. Will there be I/Q output to a third party program for possible point and click spectrum display type operations. Will there be a way to remote control it from outside of one's own LAN without hav...

Re: SDS200 Observations

I think it is down to the individual for how this thing is performing, and that's obviously where filters come in. I started to get better reception as mentioned of Falmouth PD by switching on IFX. I went through the filters and with the IFX on and the filter set to Invert Falmouth PD came to life. ...

Post #6 in the below linked thread at RR is somewhat depressing with regards to this scanner ever performing as well as one of the older models where analog signals are confirmed.

Re: SDS200 Observations

I'm a bit confused by your use of the "overload" as it sounds more like poor reception. If you watched/listened to my video, you probably see what I mean by overload. Especially on 162.400, you can hear the audio from 162.475 bleeding all over it. This makes perfect sense to me. I am now truly wond...

Okay it should work now. The board had reached its limits for attachments; it was only set for 50 MB of data. I bumped it to 500. Should be fine going foward.
