Ah yes, I've definitely seen the 4/536 displaying the incorrect slot.

Re: IKEA Stoughton

If the TGs jump from slot to slot, it's probably a CAP+ system, or possibly another manufacturer like Hytera's XPT trunking.

I've been monitoring for a couple hours tonight, and everything has been on the usualy analog PL 203.5. Maybe you caught some testing this morning.

Re: Hanson PD System Changes

They're going to the regional dispatch center in Duxbury next year, but that is not a radio system, it's just where they dispatch from.

I'd listen for them with a NAC of 270, as Industrial does their radio system work, and that seems to be the NAC they always use.

It's probably worth noting in the forums here that Cohasset, Hingham, and Norwell have all switched to P25 in recent weeks as well.

Re: Braintree Radios _ Sluething Opportunity?

I concur as well. Dedicated copper phone lines are becoming less and less reliable every day. Every department that is still using them should be aware by now that they should be switching to a fiber and/or microwave solution.

Re: Fenway Park

Here's all I can confirm:

Tours - 452.625 D051
Fan Services - 464.200 - D031

We already have the fan services one in the wiki as customer service, so I suppose that doesn't need to be changed.

I'm a bit confused by your use of the "overload" as it sounds more like poor reception.
If you watched/listened to my video, you probably see what I mean by overload. Especially on 162.400, you can hear the audio from 162.475 bleeding all over it.

Re: SDS200 Observations

I too picked up the SDS200. Audio is great... But, the overload it experiences on VHF is AWFUL! On my 536 and every other scanner in the past, I've been able to receive the WX stations on 162.400 (RI), 162.425 (Cape Ann), and 162.525 (NH) just fine. On the SDS200, they're hardly there at all, or jus...

Re: One Voice Network S.E. MASS

Compared to the Industrial system, there is very little activity on the One Voice sites around here. That could be the only issue, you just haven't caught anything at the right time.

That's currently one of the frequencies of the town LTR system. A good indication of when the new system may go online is when the LTR "blips" stop being transmitted on that frequency.

Looking at Stow PD's website, I see that the police station is located at 305 Great Road. That must be where they came up with that TG number.

Re: Stow MA PD using DMR

It's quite viable, just not for interoperability. Kenwood makes radios that can operate on multi modes. FM analog, P25, DMR, pick two. In the Stow area, I'd expect that DMR and FM analog would suffice. There are other dual mode radios out there as well, so using DMR on a conventional radio system i...
