Re: Arlington PD P25

Their new channel seems so quiet compared to when it was analog. Has anyone else noticed. It almost seems like you hear one side of the conversation, not sure if perhaps one side is encrypted. Even with that said, the amount of traffic is very light. Makes you think they be using MDTs more, some typ...

Re: Carlisle PD

Great catch on that VHF freq. I've been listening for that for the last few hours and to their UHF channels with no PL and so far nothing

Re: MSP Use of Low Band VHF?

Thanks Bill. That 0375 was a typo, meant to be 9375. Anyway, those are the freqs I was referring to and I appreciate the link. Just haven't heard anything on them for a long time. But I am glad that the low band channels are still used on occasion and that the big long whips are still seen on many M...

Re: MSP Use of Low Band VHF?

Peripherally related to this issue, does anyone know if these 800 conventional MSP channels are being used, 853.0375, 853.9000, 853.9625? I believe they were/are programmed into all the MSP analog TRS radios as conventional tacs but it's been a long time since I've heard anything on them and, in a q...

Re: Lahey Clinic

Thanks Mike. I agree. Just seems odd coincidence that two of the largest hospitals in the state only 20 miles or so apart would end up on the same frequency.

Re: Lahey Clinic

Thanks Bruce. The other day I was in Wilmington and listened for an hour to 464.875 and only received C7 and that was facilities/engineering. Didn't catch the talkgroups but I'll research further when I have a chance. Interesting/odd/coincidental that they would use the same frequency as Brigham & W...

Re: Eversource Boston area??

Thanks everyone. It's very strange. I was up north of Boston today and also heard the channels loud and clear. I know it's a very strong signal. I wonder if I'm having an antenna problem at the house.

Re: Eversource Boston area??

Further to my last, I just checked the FCC database and a new license was issued for Eversource just this past April, call sign WRFG857, with repeater sites in Framingham and Woburn, one of the sites being Zion Hill, on 452.150 and 452.450. The power output is listed as only 10 watts though. Been li...

Eversource Boston area??

Listening for the last few days including during and after Isaiah, I'm hearing nothing on the Eversource 484 MHz channels, not even those weird DMR noise bursts. Are they gone? Anyone know anything about what they're using if anything? I know those channels were not generally used (in my recollectio...

MCI Framingham

Was passing through Framingham the other day and caught a control channel on 853.325. I'm confident this has to be MCI Framingham on their own site that's part of the state's COMIRS system It's P25 with active talkgroups 1249 and 1237. By the time I was into Wellesley the signal was gone, obviously ...

Statewide-Malls and Shopping Centers - Cape Cod Mall Security

In the Wiki the Cape Cod Mall Security channel is listed correctly as 462.450 DMR but with no color code. It's actually 9. I verified this yesterday. Thanks to Tim C for the suggestion on the code to check. Heard discussion of Charley's, Target and the Carousel which are all located in the Mall. Ric...

Re: Delta Air Lines KBOS Capacity Plus

Curious if anyone has had a chance to do any more research on the Delta Airlines Capacity Plus system. Or on the Jet Blue system which I believe is also Capacity Plus. Thanks.

I received a report from one of the local papers that West Bridgewater Police has gone digital. I'm not hearing them anymore on their conventional PL.

Re: Delta Air Lines KBOS Capacity Plus

Hi, curious if you've had a chance to run that LCN finder again on this Delta system. I was at the airport the other day and used your 11/6 band plan and heard traffic on TG 101 and 201 but nothing else. I didn't have long there before my flight though.

Re: SDS200 or BCD536HP...and a 396T question

I am a huge fan of the SDS200. The display is incredible and I've had no out of the ordinary reception issues as others have reported. I will say that the 536 and 996 seem to be a little more sensitive on VHF and UHF. However, I also am not a fan of the 536 (or 436) display. I find them difficult to...

Thanks. Do you have any details that's different than what's posted here or on RadioReference?
