Re: FRFD EMS

(3 converted mills, about 100 suites). If any office has any medical emergency, they call the Paramedic and he ra...

Re: Air Show to resume in Quonset Point after 2019 hiatus

Since there is no headliner team scheduled, (Blue Angels, Thunderbirds, Canadian Snowbirds) I would guess the crowds will be smaller this year. Also, considering the state of affairs in the Middle East at present, the show could very well be cancelled again this year because of troop deployments.

Re: RISCON quite

IIRC another cell site was added to CMH last summer. That should make at least 3 or 4 sites there. The city is also adding a microwave site there, but that is a point to point fixed system and shouldn't be a problem.

Re: ICE MotoTRBO TRS Decoding Project

I believe TG 237 is Motiva in Providence. Began hearing comms this afternoon relating to "hooking up the manifold on the dock, starting the pumps and opening valves.

Re: Help to ID

462.1250 R 77.0/91.5 - sounded almost like a taxi/livery service using the two Tones [Disp/Cars] This is the one I've been chasing for close to two months in Fall River. I believe this is Towne Taxi. Unlicensed as far as I can tell. Seems to be alot of that lately in this neck of the woods ! :eek:

Re: East Providence DPW on ICE

Listened to this TG tonight. This is NOT East Providence DPW. It's clearly some contractor or other private company that contracts plowing to E. Prov. I heard what must have been a foreman or supervisor assigning jobs to the plows. Many of them were in Warren, Barrington and Bristol as well as E.Prov.

Access has also opened bases in Massachusetts also, Worcester and Sturbridge to be specific. I think they are also on the south shore, Brockton I think.

Not simulcasting and no hits on their UHF channel (460.0375 203.5) in the last 6 hours. All comms back on the 800 TG (36752). The UHF appears dead. That's all I know for now.

That is Rehoboth PD back on their 800 talkgroup. Started last week. Not sure if they're having an issue with the UHF channel. I'll try and listen to both and see if they're simulcasting, or just back on the 800.

Just heard a radio check with H8 on H-PTL-2. I'm guessing this is Weston. I'm also guessing that the tunnels baracks (old E4) is now H9 which is using H-PTL-3 for comms.
