6/18

Post by Scott »

Good morning,

Canada is making a visit this morning. Both weather broadcasts on 161.650 and 161.775 are being received here. 775 is the stronger of the two, and in French as I type this.

Seems to have ended for me at least. almost 65 hours straight of getting mass.

Hello,

This looks interesting since it is basically a IDAS Trunked System. Horizon Communications runs a IDAS trunked system up in NH and Maine, but that frequency did not pop up.

One thing that did pop up was WQTI913 - Providence & Worcester Railroad. 160.275 and 160.365 are licensed for repeaters in Gardner, MA. They are licensed for Analog and 4800 NXDN. The repeaters are located at the P&W interlocking with the Pan Am Railways. I do not see any listing of the frequencies in the Wiki for MA.

73 Eric
