Re: Trouble receiving Cape Fire.

True, I'm making an assumption it's Zone 04. That being said 855.5375 was the primary control channel for a LONG time. I'm taking a guess that perhaps it was not programmed as such and that's now why the OP is having a problem receiving the system. But you could be entirely correct. I'm sure we'll f...

I use CC 859.2375. I seem to get all of the Cape PD & FD.

What he said! The CC did rotate to 859.2375 a few weeks ago and has been constant there since. If you're not programmed for that to be a CC you should. Check the wiki and ensure you have all of the CC's for the system programmed.

Re: Search ignores common words - like "Boston" and "fire"

Try it now; it appears to be fixed. This looks like an oversight on my part, back to the days where I ran the website. I had to change a setting and then re-index the database. But, I just did a search on Boston Fire and it worked.

Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

10/21 Evening

Seems like a bit of an opening from my location (Cape Cod) to the north. Nothing spectacular by any means, thus far anyway.

156.2100 94.8 Webster MA Police
154.1000 94.8 Richmond RI Police
155.5800 94.8 Dunstable or Groton MA Police

I'm sure there will be more. I had a nice 94.8 PL run there....

Re: 10/20 DX

Cool, thanks for the info.

This opening is likely to go away with the rain, but that said just heard Bay of Fundy Radio on Marine CH12 (156.600).

9/16 DX

Bands appear open this morning although I have not had a lot of time to further investigate.

Looks like a whopper of an opening just to our west-southwest though! According to the above map when I looked at it at 0833.

Re: 09/08/2020 PM DX into 09/09

Sadly it looks like this will come to an end at some point today. Radar showing rain moving up and eventually into our area. That'll kill it. But as Mike says one of the best in a long time. Still very active right now.

Re: 09/08/2020 PM DX

This is where using SDR technology can become a little overwhelming. Look at all those signals between 151 and 155 MHz. This is using my IC-R8600 with SDR#. This is the best opening I've seen in a long time.

I activated the NYPD system on my 996P2 and they are blasting in at full scale. For those that may have an interest in DX'ing but you think you don't have a good enough antenna system to do so, this is one of those openings where you probably don't need one.
