Re: Hampshire Cnty Police (transition to 800MHz P25 digital)

The MSP P25 system in Western MA system was designed for mobile coverage only as portable coverage would require too many sites. It's a Motorola Solutions system so my guess is they would be all Motorola radios.

Medflight frequency change for slow folks like me

During a chase on the Pike and Rt290 in Auburn/Worcester this morning I noticed that C-PTL-3 33840 is being carried on the 700MHz Overlay as 2115. I noticed it's not on the Wiki list.

Re: Maynard PD now on UHF

Nope seems to be a complete switch over yet the signal strength seems weak. I think their emergency management folks may get 155.010R. Waiting for reports from locals to see if cruisers still have VHF radios or if they have dual band radios now? There are a couple of boarding towns still on VHF. The...

Re: Environmental Police

Hi Mark, Just noticed your original post in this thread. Their main headquarters is right near the TD Garden on 251 Causeway St Suite 101, Boston, MA 02114 (800) 632-8075 and you'll see their vehicles up and down the side streets. They are spread across a few buildings in that area. I'm not sure the...

Re: BEMS BAMA Data

No my scanner was showing the D165 was being transmitted and this was almost musical data tones. Just a few minutes of them and then they stopped. Not any formats I'm used too.

Re: My Radio setup after 60 years in the hobby

I'd be curious what you listen too with so many radios? I find myself that after four or five of them are going that I hit my limit of peripheral hearing which is how I describe multiple scanner listening. Almost a subconscious listening where it's changes in the voice or inflection you tune in on.
