Re: 451.6875 IDAS - Needham Area

For once, having Big Blue between me and Boston is an advantage. I get nothing on that frequency at all. Plus, 451.49375 IDAS signal comes in very well here.

Maybe I'll get some traffic tomorrow.

Re: 451.6875 IDAS - Needham Area

If anything, it would seem to be a market license. I rand 451.6875, but didn't see anything that would both match school bus type traffic and show IDAS or NXDN as the emissions. It seems to be a fairly common school emergency/operations frequency, but nothing matched. It seems that every school syst...

Re: 451.6875 IDAS - Needham Area

Could this be related to 451.49375? The FCC database isn't particularly helpful, but that's nothing new.

Re: RED SOX ACLS GAMES

It's Area D for the detail officers. In a play off game, the Staties might have something set up on Park Drive as that's their jurisdiction. They do some traffic details on the surrounding roads. Boston EMS used to have some bikes and other units stationed outside the park, but I don't know if they ...

Re: Medflight

Their Talk Groups appear on multiple sites, but it might depend on where the actual units are whether or not you hear them on Fall River. They have three helicopters, one fixed wing, and six ground ambulances and are pretty busy. If you use adsbexchange.com you can track the helos easily. The regist...

I use mostly DSDPLus, but wouldn't be against trying other software.

Re: 452.0750 CC 01 and CC 07

Since I gave up my Red Sox season tickets this spring, I generally only go into Boston for doctors appointments or to pick people up at Logan. It's funny how I spent so much time there when I was working, but since then I'm rarely there. Come back in Gary! You sure took care of it for long enough!

451.9000 Cap+

I'm receiving a fairly strong signal on 451.9000. DSDPlus identifies it as Cap+, Site 1, and CO7. The closest likely site is WRJM821, licensed for 30 watts and 7K60FXD, 7K60FXE emissions types. That's licensed to Silver Lakes Regional High School in Kingston. License was issued last September. We do...

Re: Gillette stadium DMR system update.

Yes, a Site number can be decoded, at least using DSDPlus. If you look at the Dell EMC trunk, it's a networked Cap+. I tracked that and figured out the site locations using DSDPlus. I haven't looked that closely at the Gillette trunks, but don't recall that they are networked. Notice that there is a...

Re: Gillette stadium DMR system update.

Your information on the police responsibilities is correct. MSP controls traffic flow on Route 1. Foxboro PD is the lead agency inside the stadium. As I'm sure most people know there are multiple police and fire agencies providing assistance to Foxboro PD and FD for large events. My guess at TG4 wou...

Re: Gillette stadium DMR system update.

TG25 is showing up today on the Operations trunk system.

Might be maintenance or maybe IT support.

I won't be able to listen much today, but maybe someone else can flesh that out.

Re: Trip Out West

I was driving at the time so I could only quickly glance at the scanner. As I recall, there was an 854.xxxx frequency carrying some of the Franklin County traffic on Zone 8. 854.7375 listed in the Wiki as a P25 channel, so that was likely it. That might have replaced 860.4625 during the great Nextel...

Gillette stadium DMR system update.

I sorted out some cable issues on my SDR set up and listened to the Gillette Operations trunk today. I've updated the TG listing to show TG5 as "private" channel. That's how it was referred to on the air. The traffic sounds like a supervisor/management talk around channel. TG4 is listed in the Wiki ...
