Re: Network 178 Site 16 NXDN System

I neglected to note in the first email that the neighbor list shows as 1, 2, and 3, which would be South Yarmouth, Mashpee, and Plymouth, so it's down my way somewhere most likely.

Network 178 Site 16 NXDN System

Well it has to be a Bearcom system but we only go up to Site 14 in the world famous Wiki. I have a CC of 471.2875, not very strong here in Marstons Mills, and yes it's a Sunday so not much talkgroup activity. The only one I'm seeing so far is 50350, which should be the town of Yarmouth Transfer Stat...

Re: Call Sign Nostalgia

Numerous police departments on Cape Cod still do it, to include Barnstable (374), Sandwich (755), Bourne (407), and Yarmouth (241). Those are normally conventional 800 MHz departments, but 2 of them are using the MSP Zone 04 system due to system issues. As I recall there are also some departments th...

Re: 4/25 DX

Still cranking from my "auxiliary location" but I'm guessing it'll end soon, rain coming across on the radar which will kill it, but it looked like a real good one. Primarily to the north from here but did hear some NY activity on 154.845 156.7 as well.

Re: 4/25 DX

All NOAA frequencies are showing strong signals right now as well. Also one of the strongest signals I've seen from MSCOMMNET to date on 160.950, which appears to be Site 61 in York County.

4/25 DX

Nice band opening to the north, arriving a little too late to get into it, but lots of P25 from NH and signals out of Maine as well.

Does it sound automated or someone saying "Triage" ?

Re: 153.1925 CC8

The "triage" transmissions are underway again. Gary you're right; just seems like an under-use of a system that had to cost some $$ to upgrade to, so there must be more to it than meets the eye. Investigating further but it is likely Nantucket Cottage Hospital. I'd still say unconfirmed as of yet bu...

Re: 153.1925 CC8

Very little traffic on here today, but twice at 1514 I heard someone say "triage". Kinda lends towards an ID but I'll wait until I hear more. The oddity is that everything seems to be TG1 radio 2002 so maybe it's a patch of sorts. I'm also monitoring the other frequency we have listed (155.100) but ...

Found some DMR activity on this frequency yesterday. Closest thing to me is Nantucket Cottage Hospital. We have minimal info in the world famous Wiki so I'm monitoring to try to see if they have switched to DMR. The license ( https://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsApp/UlsSearch/licenseFreqDetail.jsp?pageNumTo...

Re: SDRTrunk Version 0.5.0 Beta 2

I've never used this program for analog signals but its audio recovery on P25 and DMR systems is unparalleled for software based decoding. DSD+ does well; this does better. I would like to see NXDN systems added at some point. Brilliant stuff.

Bourne Police were just heard on 857.4125 D445, so apparently their radio issue was resolved.
