Re: Nh fish and game

I'm not up there enough to listen on the scanner, but based on the recent episodes of "North Woods Law" they are mostly using the County SO channels where ever they happen to be. They seem to use Channel 2 for the lost hiker searches. Again, that's just based on snippets on TV, so take it for what i...

Re: Pride Star/Trinity Acquisition

They could also maintain their own radio systems for a while. Fallon, Lifeline, and Stewarts Ambulance of NH were merged under Transformative Healthcare, but as far as I know, still maintain separate radio systems.

When I set that up, everything was encrypted, but now the dispatch side is clear while the mobiles are encrypted. I'm slowly figuring out what is what. For example, 457 is Boston area chair cars. Occasionally, if a dispatcher is covering more than one TG you'll hear an Eascare mobile unit on a Brews...

Re: ICE MotoTRBO TRS Decoding Project - Official Thread

778 sounds like railroad track workers. Reference to Middleboro Ave, Old Colony, and a crew from "Middlesex".

Crews asking foremen permission to move from location to location. Foremen discussing clear areas.

Heard on Site 28 the past couple of days.

My New SDR setup

While cleaning out my Mother in Law's apartment we had to figure out what to do with her computer. At first, I was planning to just wipe the hard drive and toss it out. It's an older Dell All in One and I didn't see much use for it. Then I looked at the specifications and thought that it might make ...

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...

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

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!
