05/25/22 DX?

Picking up the Block Island DMR Cap + trunk tonight. Not a normal pick up here. My friend at lunch today heard my little college FM in Newton too.

Could be a sign of things to come this evening... let's hope.

Thanks for the heads-up, I wasn't aware. I have an idea most police have no idea what an "amateur or ham" is nowadays. My apologies, I have sent this off topic, maybe a mod would want to intervene.
Nope this is fine. No issues.

MSP was using SOPS 1, but I wasn't listening to closely to that. I did hear one arrest about 16:00 or so. Alcohol related, of course.
SOPS1 was for the Revere Beach Patrols, SOPS2 was for the Garth Brooks Concert.

Re: Garth Brooks at Gillette

Apparently it was a royal cluster f--k. I have friends in the area who said almost all the side streets were inundated with WAZE lost drivers. Took 2-3 hours to get from the Wrentham 495-Route 1 exit to the stadium at the peak, which is rather unusual. Sounds like lots weren't open early enough and ...

As Kenny mentions once the data makes it to the RRDB, it will take a week for then Uniden to get it into their next preloaded update. In the mean time , you can always manually add them to your Favorite lists (I think that is what the SDS calls them) The Sentinel Update has the F1 P25 on it. F2 and...

It was added to the RRDB on May 3rd. However the Sentinel DB did not update off of RR last week, so it's not been updated yet.

Re: Quincy Police

It's smart, but somewhat unusual in municipal planning to get more sites that you might actually need. Of course if experience shows that the extra sites are needed then they are available. Not if you're doing a simulcast like Quincy is. Especially over a city with such variable terrain and size as...

I seem to remember reading an article that said that they were going to use three sites. Bill might remember or he might have posted the link. It was probably close to two years ago, so anything could have changed. I have the SDS100 locked on to Channel 1 now, so I'll see if it improved since yeste...

Re: Quincy Police

I've been trying to receive it from the South Shore as well as from Cambridge with no luck, it's not encrypted is it? Is the signal putting out much power? Thanks for the help. Very likely they're using a 5 site LSM system. Which means: fantastic coverage in the city, and lousy coverage outside of ...

Re: Call Sign Nostalgia

Out in the beautiful Berkshires, Great Barrington fire still refers to dispatch as "849", a relic of the long expired call sign KCB849. Around here Raynham PD still refers to their dispatch by their call sign.

Based on the scanner feed, most of the operations were on "Conway 2". With Conway 1 (the one that was streamed) being used between the IC and the dispatcher.

I am assuming you heard this on TS1? Would be interesting to find out if TG1003 ever shows up on 151.1900 TS1, which is the only remaining, never IDed group there. I had heard 1003 several years ago when they switched over. Memory is not 100% but perhaps Fire Marshal? I think it was on the 151.1900...

Fire uses the NAC of FD1 and this was using FD1 last report for the Fire, where-as PD uses a NAC of E9X

Did they change the NAC ? or might this be a town-wide Shared Channel - common to all ?
No he's correct. Someone incorrectly IDed it.

Having trouble with this one, as I am not able to get a decent bearing on it with the beam, for a few months now. Only ID to help is Coloure Code of 4 no Talkgroups observered nor any audio loggings. Anyone else ? Two questions. 1) What bearing are you getting it at? 2) What's a Coloure? :confused:...
