Re: Garth Brooks at Gillette

Ahhh. Well, it's likely that alcohol related arrests were made at both, so my confusion is understandable.

Re: Garth Brooks at Gillette

MSP was using SOPS 1, but I wasn't listening to closely to that. I did hear one arrest about 16:00 or so. Alcohol related, of course. Apparently it was a royal cluster f--k. I have friends in the area who said almost all the side streets were inundated with WAZE lost drivers. Took 2-3 hours to get f...

Garth Brooks at Gillette

I think he was there last night, but there is definitely a concert tonight. Gillette trunk is active, mostly TG 4 (Ushers and Gates). TG 13 (East Parking Lots) is active on the Parking Trunk system.

Finestkind filming

Cruller signs are up at the old Goddard Hospital on Sumner St in Stoughton. No activity, but signs are. Also, trucks parked on Technology Drive in Stoughton. There is construction equipment at the former Bassett Furniture building also on Tech Drive. No activity or signs there, but it looks like the...

Re: Quincy Police

I heard them yesterday on I-95 near Needham. I was surprised that I was hearing it so well. I've been out of town, so hadn't heard any local systems in over a week and the audio for QPD seemed more clear than when they first went P25. I've been trying to receive it from the South Shore as well as fr...

Re: Quincy Police

Bill and I both confirmed F3 last year when Quincy dedicated the "Presidents Bridge." It's rarely used, but that might change now that the system has been upgraded. The Sentinel Update has the F1 P25 on it. F2 and F3 haven't been submitted and I haven't verified them yet, so they aren't changed yet.

Re: Quincy Police

It's smart, but somewhat unusual in municipal planning to get more sites that you might actually need. Of course if experience shows that the extra sites are needed then they are available.

Re: MBTA Looking for Design Build APCO P25 Phase 2 proposal

Makes sense, I guess. They might prefer Harris because of the relationship they have from the EDACS system. I wonder if they'll move the Transit Police over and use CoMIRS outside of the MBTA coverage area?

Re: Quincy Police

I seem to remember reading an article that said that they were going to use three sites. Bill might remember or he might have posted the link. It was probably close to two years ago, so anything could have changed. I have the SDS100 locked on to Channel 1 now, so I'll see if it improved since yester...

Re: Quincy Police

Brewster probably had to buy their own radios and they might have used a different shop and brand of radio. I don't know if QPD is using Motorola, although I'd guess so. Brewster might have gone with a different brand. I imagine that the dispatch audio will be sorted out and maybe the Brewster audio...

Bill and i confirmed that last summer being used for the dedication of the Generals Bridge. ETA: I just got back home after a weekend trip. Maybe it's me, but Dispatch sounds a bit muddy on Channel 1, but mobiles sound okay. I wonder is signal strength will be better down here in Stoughton? Thanks f...

Re: Network 178 Site 16 NXDN System

Is it likely that Site 14 is for a specific school bus company or companies? I notice that the license at the link Bill posted also has a smaller, lower power trunk in Marshfield. I can usually get the current UHF site at home, but don't know if the T band signal will travel as far. I won't be able ...

I'll go with TCC. 14 is likely a reference to the 14th Hole.

Re: 153.1925 CC8

If it's anything like Martha's Vineyard hospital it will get very busy once tourist season starts around Memorial Day. I used to do a lot of teaching down there. We'd go down every year in early May to start training the seasonal nursing staff ahead of the rush. That was in the last 1990s and back t...

Re: 153.1925 CC8

Would be consistent with a hospital. If it's slow enough they might not have staff in the ED, so when someone comes in the call goes out for a nurse to come down and see a patient. Well between yesterday and today I've managed to capture audio recordings of numerous transmissions. The thing is, all ...

Re: Big Chase on Pike C-PTL-3 and State

Maybe, but when that started I think the news helos were already in the air. The MSP ship came out of Plymouth, so had a long way to travel. I think they launched about 30 minutes into the chase. The NYSP ship came out o the Albany area so was there well before the MSP one. Probably an issue of trav...

Re: Big Chase on Pike C-PTL-3 and State

Not a big enough story for any of the TV stations to send a helo out to cover. They relied on grainy stills from traffic cameras on the Pike.

NYSP helo also on the way to the scene.

Re: Big Chase on Pike C-PTL-3 and State

Well into Troop B now, about 30 miles from the NY state line. I've been listening since the beginning. Multiple tires gone on the vehicle being pursued. Multiple warrants on the driver.

Helicopter just launched out of Plymouth.

The trooper leading the chase is incredibly calm on the radio.
