Re: nantucket

It may have changed, but they were using the RDC NXDN trunk for the shuttles and other shore side operations like food services. The last confirmations were a few years ago and on sites I can't copy from my QTH, so they may have moved. Steamship uses Kenwood VHF Portables. They actually have their F...

Re: Boston Calling 2023

Wiki shows 1195 as Harvard PD patched to their 484Mhz frequency. That's listed on the Cambridge trunk patch, so maybe the portables are seeing the 700Mhz sites better than the Cambridge sites.

Re: Metro Ambulance

That's interesting. I may plug it into a scanner since I'm up that way fairly often. They have a very unique radio system. Each truck has a dedicated radio tied to a LTE gateway so essential each truck operates a repeater so they can have portable coverage in the vicinity of their trucks . They oper...

Re: Metro Ambulance

From what I was told, he's a firefighter in one of the communities up there. Active or retired I don't remember which. There was a Metro Ambulance out of Dorchester about 40 years ago. It didn't last long and someone else eventually bought the assets, maybe Reardon Ambulance. Which is also no longer...

Metro Ambulance

There's a new ambulance company operating out of Woburn. Metro Ambulance is a recent start up and I saw one of their ambulances in the Burlington area yesterday.

Not unless there are multiple users with different Talk Groups. Or, if you want to track specific individual radio IDs.

I can imagine that every pilot who flies it might need to be checked out on the new configuration.

Re: New EMS and fire stations in South Boston

A15 was supposed to be a temporary station for the CANA project that was the first phase of the Big Dig. That was in the latter part of the 1980s. There was an unsuccessful plan to move A15 across the street to the firehouse. The current building where A14 and A9 are housed was supposed to be sold s...

Re: New EMS and fire stations in South Boston

I tried to find that out, but no luck so far. There is an outside chance that they will be co located, but that probably makes too much sense. I've been saying this for years about the seaport. It's a far cry from Anthonys pier 4 and Jimmy's harborside being the only reason to go down there. The rea...

They started on April 1, but were testing off and on during March.

I've been told that they will run dual mode for about a year in order to give members time to buy P25 equipment.

I haven't caught the NAC yet, but it appears that the P25 user is encrypted.

Both signals are more or less equal in strength.
