Falmouth DPW

Does anyone have any new information?? I was told by a town worker that the new radios are installed and being used. However, I hear nothing on 854.4625 and 854.1125. However, recently I am hearing what sounds like a "trunk system control" sound on 854.7125. Very strong at my location in North Mashpee, S8 on the icom.

These are DMR transmissions. I have heard some voice traffic. It's been a while but I believe it was on 854.7125. As I look at it now I am seeing DMR data that appears to be related to the location of I'm guessing vehicles.

That was my thinking, but I was uncertain. I am going to program my BCD 536, as a conventional DMR and see what I get.

I'm using the Airspy Mini SDR with SDR# and DSD+ in this case, but you should be able to program it in your 536 either as conventional DMR or a single channel trunked system and get results.

On the 536, a way to quickly get TG/Slot info is to hit the Quick Search function.

"channel", enter the frequency (but don't hit enter) , "channel" again.

One of the nice things with the SDS series of scanners is it displays this info on all standard conventional entries.
