Scott,

It appears I was completly wrong.. Hell they cancelled it for Covid. I'd say the best we can muster now is that "attendance will be taken" and "you could earn special credit!"

Re: Antenna for picking up Worcester P25.

Try this one https://openmhz.com/system/worcester
Use the filter at the top to customize what you want.

PD and Fire are P1
Shewsbury all P2
Some Worcester City Services are P2 but if any older radios are involved the talkgroup shifts to P1.

Re: News copters and buff networks: the highlights

Around 11am there was a 100MPH + chase on the Mass Pike on C-PTL-3 and they lost the car as they got on 84. The car was found near exit 3 unattended and there was a search on SOPS-7 for most of the day. They called it a while ago.

Re: BPD B2/B3 no longer patched to Ch. 11

I will say as a regular user of P25 on several radios it is amazing how you can use it right through what would be total noise in analog use. Of course right after that you hit a brick wall and break up but any idiot who tells you analog works farther is just liar or someone who has never tried it.

Always a good time. I will be there as well perhaps we should schedule a lunch in the area? Not sure what would be the best talk in frequency in that area.
