Re: VT statewide NXDN48 system

Old thread but figured I would add a hit I had in CT while doing some hilltop radio monitoring. 451.0250 Ch 83 L113-19 RAN19 Fleetnet license shows it as being in Shelburne Falls MA. I did not get any traffic or any of the Neighbors as this was not my target today. I also got Site 9 as previously re...

Re: New Eversource radio system

I suspect 6.4 is West Hartland and the other could be either Soapstone Hill in Torrington or Canton substation (Rt 44 & 179). If it operates like other trunking systems, a site would likely need a radio affiliated to a specific talkgroup in order for that group to be broadcast at the site. So if the...

Re: SDRTrunk Software

I have used it in the past for MPT1327. It was a bit clunky for the P25 trunked decoding and haven't tried any of the newer releases

Re: New Eversource radio system

- I would imagine that you read that the system is still being built. This means there is only sporadic testing going on. I have seen days go by with only a half dozen transmissions and those may be done in one or two minutes. I have see patches from what I suspect is low band only twice. - The syst...

Re: Cape cod canal

In case your font makes it look like the letter "S" like mine, a NAC is usually indicated by a dollar sign "$" with tiny bumps on top and bottom instead of a line all the way down.

EMS dispatching still is handled by Granby PD as Granby Ambulance provides EMS coverage however, the EMD is done by TN. FD is still on the old 142.4375 $103 channel EMS dispatch s...

Re: City of Hartford FD now on CLMRN

VHF patch is in service for Fireground traffic only. Dispatch TG is still only on CLMRN. I would imagine it is that a P25 Phase 2 radio is expensive.

Re: Receiving MA Agencies in NH?

I would suggest doing some searches. Some of the Uniden scanners have a service search and running Public Safety might show what you can hear better than folks guessing what you might be able to hear.

Hoskins Rd Site it is called I believe and is one of the sites. I am trying to put together a list but as it is private, there aren't many sources of information. The licensing is not site based If I recall.

Re: Marcus Communications Tier III

there is no converter program that I was able to find. The talkgroups are broken down into three parts, NP means Network Prefix; FGN is Fleet Group Number; and GN is Group Number. Group ID = (NP - 328) × 8000h + (FGN - 20) × 100 + (GN - 900) + 100001h. (h means Hexadecimal) The easiest for me is to ...

Re: Franklin County FRCOG (transition to CoMIRS)

I believe that was the reason for limiting the radios available in the "free radios" program to Motorola and EFJohnson as they can work on the legacy Motorola TRS as well as the newer P25 P1 and the future P25 P2.

Re: Msp

If you are talking about Talkgroup ID rather than a radio ID, it should be Franklin County Simulcast 1. Uniden 59152 is P25 TGID 3697/E71h which is Franklin County Simulcast 1

One is as a conventional channel and the second is as a Single Channel Trunked DMR. I would suggest that the first would be the best unless you want to se...
