Re: Eversource DMR on SDS100

The DMR frequencies used in the Boston area are DMR conventional, however there is a split with data traffic on Slot 1 and very very occasional voice on Slot 2. So while you download as conventional, you'll want to set it up as a trunk with the few TGs. I am on the road but can send you a Sentinel f...

Jeep Wrangler RFI

So a few months back, I switched to a Jeep Wrangler. Using a pair of Larsen 2/440 antennas on side mounts. NMO bases with RG 58 runs into the scanner. The antennas are closer to the front of the vehicle. Well let me tell you, all up and down the band from VHF to UHF, I have all these noisy spikes. S...

Beverly PD is full strength right now. I live 1/2 mile from another UHF transmitter on 483 MHz, and with them transmitting, caused 0 degradation to Beverly. Or Lynn.

I recently heard TG 4907 with references to streets in Shrewsbury. Very short transmissions. I wonder if this is the TG for the Shrewsbury DPW, Water, Electric Light Co (SELCO) and/or the Town Cable TV operations. No radio traffic heard on 155.88 after the switch to the trunk.

Re: Dial Tone Busy Signals on DMR/NXDN

I believe the "Fleetwave" Commercial Trunk (similar to our ICE one down here), which is NXDN is 100% Encrypted.

Re: WESTCOMM - Chicopee & Longmeadow Dispatch Center

They have 7 licensed frequencies. If they were to run it in TDMA (Phase II), they'd get at least 12 voice channels. With 12, they'd be able to separate East Longmeadow from Longmeadow, give Monson a TG, and even put in "cross patch" TGs to WMLEC PD/FD for interoperability. But it's just FD...

The coverage of this thing is insane. Unless it's multiple repeaters. I wonder if this is Rhode Island SP's old transmitters being repurposed for something else with a new DPL?
