Re: HamXposition August 26th,27th and 28th at the Crowne Plaza in Marlborough MA

I understand there will be a lot of Tetra at this event this year since the Westborough P25 repeater is down. The analog 900MHz repeater will be ther as usual and I will have 5 loaner radios as usual for that.

We all take Friday off for these things. Friday is always the biggest day. What we need is both sellers and buyers to show up on Sunday that is the day that is always a ghost town.

Re: 8/4 All Day

The EDACs system had a transmitter on Mt. Asnebumskit in Paxton so that got out well. The newer P25 simulcast does not.

August 5th is the last date for this low rate:

Special HamXposition convention room rate $109 per night, includes breakfast! You must call the hotel direct at (508) 460-0700 to book your room. I'd like to mention there is a lovely lounge in the hotel where SNE members could discuss scanning.

Re: Dial Tone Busy Signals on DMR/NXDN

On P25 it indicates encryption I would guess it is the same for those. It just a goofy noise the scanner makes when encryption is in progress.

Re: DCR

Everyone needs to have APX's for it to work. If an XTS or XTL joins them the talkgroup reverts back to Phase 1. The DCR has a lot of new radios and the 700 works real well for them.
