A good test of your antenna would be to throw on 154.31 PL 107.2, Berkshire County Fire. They used to do an evening test around 6pm, and they still do the noon saturday fire siren tone out shoot off thing. With the transmitter was up on Lenox Mountain, the signal is typically heard towards Worcester.

Yes, just an FYI, I own both a 96 and 2096, so I can pretty certain I know how they work. The 96/2096 PL stays in PL mode in any mode except programming. So manual, scan, open or closed, the PL/DPL is always decoded when entered. The 92/2067 PL/DPL only works with the scanner in SCAN mode and the ba...

The usual suspects for me from RI, however I was also getting Stamford, Bridgeport PD and FD both. Stamford is a new catch for me. Also FM Catches WXKS in HD (Starting to be a regular during trop.) WQGN in HD, WWBB in HD. An interesting one, WSNE analog was not there (b/c of sideband noise from WHYN...

The PRO 96 does receive bleed through on 0.0075 channels, I know, I've heard it on mine, so it is still a possibility. We'd need to findout what the PL for that one I listed is at... Also by locked, do you mean the bank is closed? In the 96, that doesnt matter for PL tones. The PL tones work all the...

It could have been being used by Stafford County NH which has a repeater on 154.0025. There is a West Hollis and Rutland in New Hampshire.

P.S. I moved this thread to the DX forum

This was probably not East Longmeadow PD, but rather WMLEC's Channel 1 VHF tie to 460.225 (there is an 800 tie as well). There is a license for it to the Town of Monson under WBC459, located on Hovey Hill in Monson, in addition to mobiles. Palmer is also licensed base/mobile, Holland mobile and Eas...

It's actually 99.7.

There is a little piece of funny trivia about 99.7 WSKO-FM.
The two big FM Sport talkers (competitors) in Providence (WEEI-FM and WSKO) both share the same tower.

So if you were getting WSKO-FM, that means you could hear the Yankees on FM!!!

Nice. I got Hampden Police on 154.800 141.3 also, so it's open to the west as well. Hampden PD had been using 155.6025 PL 91.5 as the primary, and the 154.80 PL 141.3 as just a backup, so that is quite a catch. Reminds me of picking up Ayer's PD F2 from here... For what it is worth , I am getting J...

A funny note: I am getting WEEI-FM 103.7 strong enough that the RDS has kicked in, and during the Sox game, on the RDS, they give the score of the ball game, a game highlight (oritz 2 run triple). Tonight is NUTS DX wise, on my 895 XLT with the antenna on the FLOOR, I am hearing Richmond RI PD.

This has been an interesting afternoon!
I was listening to WFPG-FM in the car today.
Last night, my "home" stereo which is set to 103.7 was getting horrible bleed. Turns out it was 103.9 WRCN.

If only WMAS-FM's transmitter would dump to low power so I could get better DX reports...

The FBI im sure is very interested in him. IIRC, "hacking" US public websites, no matter what country you are in, is a US federal crime, and he will probably be getting a visit sometime soon. He's so bold it doesn't seem like it will take much to nab him. Scott you may feel free to use that comment ...
