If you look down thread, you'll see a couple of posts where we discuss the "Pine Hill" tower. I think it's called Pine HIll, although I didn't see it listed as such on Google Maps. If you sit in the parking lot for the Prospect Hill Park and look across the street, you'll see that tower. Which is how I stumbled across is back in June.

For those who might care, the tower is sited on Sachem Street in Waltham. I wasn't able to find any tower information, but I'm sure someone else will be able to.

It's up at the top of the hill, right in a residential neighborhood.

Good work on Perfection by you and disp617. The locations I heard mentioned fit in perfectly with where they generally go.

There is no Industrial site on Prospect Hill in Waltham. As you know the Antico tower was removed after the battle with the city so only the city's site remains there now. You have the American Tower sites across the highway on Bear Hill and another tower that you can see to the east a little north that I think is called Pine Hill. Perfection Towing in Watertown moved from the Dispatch Communication system to Industrial after the Antico tower left so that is still a pretty active towing company in the area that hasn't been identified. They work on the Pike for the MSP a lot.

I don't think we post individual IDs as a rule. I know we don't for Law Enforcement, and don't think we do for private companies either. Occasionally, I have put in UIDs for base stations, but I don't know if we can still do that.

Not only that, but it takes up a fair amount of space in our format.

Still, nothing will stop me from adding that to my DSD file! :)

I'll try to find out if "Pro Tech" in Waltham also left Dispatch Communications Trunk like Perfection did after the Alinco Tower came down. Pro Tech does most the Triple A in the Waltham, Watertown, Newton area. https://protechtowing.com/

I set my 536 up to record and just play everything back and write it all down. If not allowed my apoligies. I like to load my scanner up with everything I find.

Don't apologize. I'd much rather have more information and activity here than less.

TG 225 is another two company on Site 32. I'm going to try the Boston and Cambridge Tow look ups to see if I can figure it out.
