Re: Vanishing Ambulance Services

Speaking of southern MA ambulance services, has anyone gotten any hits on either of the Alert Ambulance Talkgroups on ICE? I can't remember the last time I saw them pop up. It might just be that they don't go into Boston as much as it used to, given that I only receive Sites 2, 4, 22, and 23 regular...

Re: Vanishing Ambulance Services

I heard Children's on the Comtronics UHF as of about 3-4 weeks ago, while I was trying to ID other users on that system. Speaking of ambulance companies that legitimately appeared to have vanished, I was monitoring TG272 on the ICE MotoTrbo system which I had almost 100% ID'd as Eastern Ambulance, b...

Re: Couple of North Shore area freq questions

Interesting that you heard 151.9850 loud in clear in Beverly, are you working off of an external antenna? I hear it with a very poor signal not far from Logan but with transmissions (not to mention the fact that the license location is Children's Boston) that seem more to do with the Boston Hospital...

Re: MGH Charlestown Facilities

Thanks guys, I wasn't aware of the BearComm-Comtronics connection. I'm pretty convinced that I've properly ID'd it, but I'd like someone else to listen and confirm what I think I'm hearing before I add it just because the license doesn't match considering that the rest of MGH's frequencies in use se...

MGH Charlestown Facilities

For a while now I've been hearing facilities operations on 859.9125 with a color code of 1, using TG1005 and a timeslot of 2. Upon further listening it's definitely MGH facilities for the Charlestown and Chelsea campuses. I'm getting locations like buildings 114 and 149 (both buildings in Charlestow...

Comtronics UHF MotoTrbo Trunk (Non-Duplicate)

At long last, finally confirmed:

TG 54 - Stanleys Towing 1
TG 56 - Stanleys Towing 2

It finally dawned on me to cross-reference the plates called out over the air with the Boston towing lookup website. I'm surprised the idea just came to me today.

Two more riveting confirmations.

14 - Partners Health Care Hospitals Network - Weekly check ins with all hospitals in Partners network. During run-up to Marathon, would also list available beds. Seems to be MotoTrbo replacement for analog UHF LTR TG 0-09-071.

Re: Help finding certain freqs in greater Boston

They definitely are operating in Newton but there are just these little hints that it's not them. I'm not sure. I also have been listening to that UHF LTR system either the Boston or Waltham site, I believe the talkgroup is the 1-01-101 you mentioned. That could be it as well but still don't have c...

Thanks guys for the confirmations, I figured that's what they were but I had no ability to confirm.

A bit off topic, as I understand it the Worcester Safety & Security guys are now Massport Fire as of this year. Does ORH still have any law enforcement now other than Troop F?

I haven't heard a ton of traffic on 31, but I'm not sure if it's only active when someone from Logan is speaking (like Troop F or Massport Fire Alarm.) TG 507 -...

Interestingly, I heard "Station F to Hanscom" on TG31 as well, requesting "Hanscom" check on a group of suspecte...

Re: Massachusetts > Business Radio Systems

Interestingly, both showed timeslot 1. After a while of listening, those are the only 2 talkgroups that I've found. ARINC also operates a Capacity Plus system at Logan that I could've sworn I added to the Wiki but I guess I only added the American Airlines one.

For whatever reason, I'm not getting any Massachusetts results when I search in the NEFD. I'm getting all of the other New England results as well as NY but even trying on frequencies I know are licensed in MA (460.4500 or 462.9250) I'm getting nothing.

I've been looking for them as well since DMR came to Uniden. All traffic on 855.0875 has been related to facilities issues without any security-related conversation.
