Re: ICE Trunk

I moved this to Scanning Miscellaneous, since I think it fits better. The RR data is missing one frequency, but that's not likely your problem. Add 939.1500 with LCN 9 to the frequency list. A couple of things to try. Make sure that you have all of the frequencies entered. Check to make sure you don...

Re: Franklin County FRCOG (transition to CoMIRS)

Thanks again. I'll update the 22/223xx groups with notes that they are probably inactive, at least for now. Speaking of capacity testing, will adding those analog TGs for Franklin County stress Zone 8 capacity? The county codeplug(s) included both analog 800 and CoMIRS zones due to how coverage diff...

They picked a good time (for us) to roll out the new system.

Re: Franklin County FRCOG (transition to CoMIRS)

Thanks. One last question while I work on this. Are the 22xx and 23xx patch TGs all out of service? Yes, the Ops channels are agency agnostic. During the transition the plan is to patch together an Ops channel and a regional tower (Toby, Shelburne, Charlemont, etc.) to maintain interop between upgra...

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

I think that there may well be good reasons for not encrypting most of the channels on MV. Based on past trips there some years back, they hire a lot of temporary help during the summer. They also have some call/volunteer fire fighters and summer only police officers. I suspect that a lot of those f...

"Fluid and dynamic" as the saying goes. Still need to puzzle out the actual layout of things. The paging receivers are according to the license not listed on this frequency. I hadn't heard any transmissions on this one until today. 155.7225 was the one that was testing the other day. 156.2175 alread...

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

Interesting article. All things considered it was much better than the the typical media article.

So, 155.4375 will now be fire ops?

Almost makes me want to take a ride down that way.

Re: CoMIRS Eastern Mass. Project 25 Phase 2?

Interesting stuff John, thanks. It seems that Kenwood has bought EF Johnson and now sells their "Viking" brand of radios. Here is a PDF from FRCOG with more detailed pricing and equipment options. It seems as if Marcus is the preferred vendor for Kenwood. https://frcog.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/12...

Today, they mentioned something on I-95 near Route 3, which is in Burlington. Also, they are on the air at all times of the day and night, which tow companies shar...

Re: DMR Conventional Versus Trunking?

One thing to remember about One Frequency Trunking (OFT) is that you have to created a new system for it. You can't mix conventional and trunking in the same system. Which is why I very rarely use it. So using either ARC536 or Sentinel, you'd have to create a new DMR trunk system. You'd select "New ...
