Re: RDC Nextedge Import issue

The Sentinel software had not updated the latest Database changes, so I was not seeing the newer version of that system. It updated for me yesterday, so all is well. I forgot that Sentinel only updates once a week.

RDC Nextedge Import issue

Trying to import this system into my BCD Sentinel software but I'm not getting the latest version. It's only importing an older version of the system. I have updated the software to the latest version as well as updating the firmware in the scanner but I still am not getting the latest version. http...

Direct Communications on a Trunked System

I was monitoring something today that took place in Falmouth, MA. One of the communications was from command asking the interior to "Go Direct", as in go to simplex mode. Now, Falmouth FD operates on the MA State Police trunk system, so how then is it possible to go direct? How would that work on a ...

It would be nice. I can barely hear Bourne from my house in the Mills on conventional.
I'm off Rt.130 near Mashpee and its hit or miss for me hearing Bourne PD on 857.4125.

Brief transmission just heard on this frequency and it was in the clear. Could not catch much, as it was only a short transmission.

Re: Dukes County (MV) New Radio System (Was 156.2175 Part II)

I am hearing both sides on that frequency. Is the scanner delay time cutting off any replies? I programmed the new frequencies into my 536HP as part of an update to all of my scanners. I'll be down in Falmouth on Friday afternoon/evening and might be able to do some listening. Anyway, 153.2175 is co...

Re: MSP Zone 4 Digital T/G E430 - 58416

Does the system type need to be changed to digital in order to hear this, or can the talk group just be entered? I put this into one of my scanners but as of now have not caught anything.

I loaded in all "known" analog frequencies for Dukes County into 2 of my digital scanners. Will check for any analog reception.

Possible ID for ICE System

I have been monitoring the ICE trunk system here on Cape Cod, and I'm fairly certain I have identified an unknown user on this system. Talk group is 255, and I keep hearing drivers say "Lighthouse XXX", or references to Lighthouse. It's listed in the wiki as a bus company on Cape Cod, and I believe ...

Sandwich PD has gone back to their talk group on the MSP system again. I wonder if the conventional 800MHz system they have is aging?

Re: Trouble receiving Cape Fire.

If you have the Mass State Police Trunk System programmed properly to receive Zone 4 then you just program in the talk group of the specific department you want to monitor. All the information for talk group numbers are in the wiki section of the website here.

Re: Trouble receiving Cape Fire.

I'll take it a step further. Program in all known control channels as well as all other frequencies within that system/zone. You can't go wrong doing it this way. Modern scanners can do control channel only trunking, in which the scanner will figure out the rest but if you have them all programmed a...

Re: Interoperability channel?

I think Bourne FD has UHF radios in the trucks and can switch directly to Plymouth FD if they go on a mutual aid call. I think the same can be said regarding Wareham.

Re: Interoperability channel?

When this happens they patch a Plymouth County Mutual Aid Channel to the Cape department in question. In this case it was patching Plymouth Fire to Bourne Fire and OPS-1. If you monitor both the Plymouth County M/A channel and the OPS channel there is a one second delay on the Plymouth M/A channel. ...

RDC Communications Talk Group

Just heard Talk Group 3204 simulcasting a USCG Ch.16 broadcast. This is in the wiki as a possible US Towboats talk group. Not sure if this is one and the same but from the sounds of it it's definitely USCG Ch.16.

Is this software still out there? I have it on my computer to program a couple of my scanners, but has it been updated in the past few years? I'm not seeing anything new, even with a Google search.

Re: Sandwich FD

I gave up on monitoring that, as it never sounded good at all, poor reception and audio. 460.425 is still active and sounds fine. I don't know if SFD got rid of that one?
