Sandwich FD

Post by jeffkett »

Not sure if this has been mentioned before , but it seems the Sandwich FD on 484.8250 has been dead for some time.
Have they given up on it or is it O/O/S ?. I've only noticed it last couple of weeks. FCC has no Admin Notes and shows
license until 07/13/2025.

I gave up on monitoring that, as it never sounded good at all, poor reception and audio. 460.425 is still active and sounds fine. I don't know if SFD got rid of that one?

It still exists but as Mark states terrible audio quality and incredibly weak signal.

They moved to 460.425 186.2 some time ago
I think the T-band was causing interference with Pave Paws or vice versa

Not sure how or why.....But I was on Rt 130 today by the Coke Plant and I was hearing 484.8250 186.2
It actually sounded normal. Will have to keep an ear on it to see if the coverage is any better.
