Re: Jeep Wrangler RFI

It's an interesting thought. I bought a kit to convert the tail lights in my 2019 Tacoma to LED. Occasionally when I'm in a weak signal area I'll get some signal degradation when I'm listening to FM and brake. When I did the radio and other electrical installation work on the Tacoma I put in a separ...

Re: Jeep Wrangler RFI

That's odd. When I was setting up my 2019 Tacoma I was worried about mounting an antenna to the hood. I was pleasantly surprised at how quiet it turned out. Chrysler used to publish a guide for the radio installation, but they probably don't do that any more. Maybe talk to someone in the service dep...

Re: Jeep Wrangler RFI

Modern vehicles are supposed to have better RFI suppression because of the multiple computers they have. Could it be a grounding problem? If it's not a new vehicle, I'd check all of the grounding points and look at the body to frame ground straps.From my memories of the old days body on frame vehicl...

Re: 8/4 All Day

It seems that way. I wasn't surprised to receive it in the hills of Sudbury, but out in Needham was unexpected. OTOH, I used to pick up the EDACS system as far as Rte 24 in Randolph fairly often. It seems the additional Shrewsbury sites really improved it's foot print east. Not sure why but it did.

Re: 8/4 All Day

I was receiving the Worcester P25 system on I-95 at the Needham Flats. Not bad considering how much RF is floating around out there.

Re: 1 Congress St. Boston

A friend told me about that yesterday when we were talking about this. He does a lot of work in Boston and knows a lot of people in the trades. They weren't trespassers as they were stealing tools and equipment from the site. Lots of fail there and my friend thinks that OSHA will shut the site down ...

Re: MBTA Provice

There isn't. However one of the bidders may only be able to provide 1,199 trunked Talk Groups and so won't be able to meet the specification. If they are operating under MGL Chapter 30B (Uniform Procurement Law), the contract must go to the "lowest responsive bidder." A bidder can be non r...

Re: MBTA Provice

You're right, DSDPlus doesn't follow EDACS. For some reason, my brain never retains that. :( I keep meaning to try Unitrunker again, but never seem to find the time. Thats the thing. The dongles worked fine before but now instead of edacs it shows the system as sitepro and spews random data and not ...

Re: MBTA Provice

It wouldn't be the dongles per se, it would be Unitrunker. I haven't used Unitrunker in some time so I don't recall if it follows EDACS trunking. Pro Voice is just digital voice, it doesn't involve the trunking part of the system. DSDPlus follows the trunking and processes Pro Voice audio. I use two...

It was on ADSB Exchange, but disappeared before I was able to get the registration or any other information. It was right off of Sandy Neck for those interested.
