Re: Nantucket

Hearing Huntress on 260.9 also. Trying to monitor the Nantucket TRS which has for some reason always been on the fringe from here, but what I've seen so far using SDRTrunk is not out of the norm.

Re: Mass DOT

The MA Pike info is correct and there is an entry in our ancient "SNE Logbook" with a PL of 123.0. So that's perhaps the confusion. The OP is on Cape Cod so I'm guessing he likely heard Wellfleet DPW.

Re: Mass DOT

159.120 is listed in our Wiki as Wellfleet DPW. I don't see any listing here or at Radio Reference pertinent to Mass DOT. Can you elaborate on what you were hearing and where you were located when you heard it.

Re: 11/3 DX

Yeah, I'll be damned if I pay that network a penny. Nuff said...

That was another great tropo opening. I've been trying to catch more late afternoon low band DX but nothing since Mike's discovery the other day.

Re: 11/3 DX

One last note, I am seeing some signals in the 500 MHz area as well but they are too weak to decode at this point. Definitely there though.

Re: 11/3 DX

And finally, some UHF traffic. That's it for my reports for the night, but it is kinda fun to drop a Manhattan zip code into the SDS200 and let it do the work at this point.

Re: 11/3 DX

Another great band opening. Both Environment Canada WX frequencies, 161.650 and 161.775 are in there now but the opening seems to continue to the south from here more prominently. Tried UHF a little bit ago but nothing yet. 154.430 continues to have a lot of traffic from NJ area.

Stop by anytime, just give me a heads up if you're in the area. I do have every intention of getting back to NearFest next spring. It figures that this event got scheduled for Saturday; wanted to go but just no way possible.

Re: Long Range E-Skip - CHiPs!

Wicked cool! Spring and fall are the seasons, and with the sunspot cycle on the rise, hope this is more common while low band transmissions still remain. 39.26 here now at varying levels of strength.

UHF at 460 good as well. Good amount of BPD traffic.

Now back to VHF; found a DMR TIII CC on 157.545, shows as Site:L7-20, CC 0. Still looking for an ID at this point.

In addition to tuning around, one fun thing that I'm starting to do with band openings...I have gone back to my BCD536HP for main scanning of my area as I feel it does a better overall job on analog signals than the SDS200 does. So, watching my Airspy's spectrum display I see that MSCOMMNET CC on 16...
