1/11/17 DX Report

#1 Post by Scott » 11 Jan 2017 19:31

Well it's been a while....the bands appear to be open from my location, at least to the north thus far. NH P25 very strong here as I type this, and a boatload of signals appearing in the FFT of my Airspy SDR. Off to do some mid January chasing.

Primarily favoring north still but some NY stuff as well. Both Environment Canada weather frequencies are exceptionally strong right now.

158.8950 167.9 Ayer MA Police
159.2175 $470 Hudson NH Police
159.8550 NXDN Nexedge 9600 baud voice channel, RAN 13, encrypted. Radios ID'ing as "SHOP HT" and "HOME HT". TG 5150
159.2100 114.8 Holyoke MA Police
159.1725 $57E We have it listed as a CC for Maine's MSCOMMNET system. It's voice, but trunked as some traffic cleary missing.
Seeing talkgroups 711 (MSP Zone 1A) and 715 (MSP TROOP G TALK) being used so likely that system.
160.3500 $43E MSCOMMNET Control Channel? Seeing TG 711 again. Interesting to see 9600 baud P25 CC's in DSD+
160.9500 $3DE MSCOMMNET Control Channel. Stronger than the above one.
158.7750 141.3 I'd been sitting on this for a while with the R7100, just heard "Bear Mountain" NY State Parks Police.
161.6500 CSQ Environment Canada Weather
161.7750 CSQ Environment Canada Weather

Wrapping it up for the night but it looks like it'll be cranking for a while. A few to close it for me.

160.3350 141.3 PSNH Hooksett NH Work Ctr according to the website's Logbook
MBTA ProVoice System, various frequencies in 851-854 MHz range. First time I've ever heard ProVoice, and using DSD+ to decode it.
