Couple of North Shore area freq questions

#1 Post by scannermaster » 05 Aug 2019 22:58

I copied 151.985 DMR CC1, very strong in the Beverly area. Primarily security and they mentioned an ambulance bay so I assume it's one of the hospitals in the area. Did not see anything on it in the Wiki. Possible Children's Hospital in the Peabody area? If someone else could take a listen...

Also, I'm trying to find the freq for the Liberty Tree Mall security. Have not heard anything on what is listed on the Wiki. Have heard some DMR but doesn't sound like the mall.

And I'm trying to find the Lahey Clinic security frequency. I believe they moved off of what's listed on the Wiki, maybe to DMR, but really not sure.

Thanks very much.

Interesting that you heard 151.9850 loud in clear in Beverly, are you working off of an external antenna? I hear it with a very poor signal not far from Logan but with transmissions (not to mention the fact that the license location is Children's Boston) that seem more to do with the Boston Hospital. I've heard things like shuttle operations to the Emmanuel Garage, "11'O'Clock leaving Children's Way to Renaissance," both of which point to the Longwood campus.

Just an FYI, when you search in the wiki, you have to put the 4th digit as zero into the search. 151.985 won't give you search results, but 151.9850 will. It's a known bug in MediaWiki. There supposedly is a fix for it, but it requires a bunch of changes that could easily break it.

Thanks to everyone for your thoughts on this. At first I too thought it was Phillips Exeter Academy but as Ocean Nora wrote all these other place names indicated otherwise. I'm working off a 70' tower with a VHF gain stick so it's not surprising I'm getting great signal and by what Ocean Nora wrote it sounds like it is Children's Boston. I now see it's in the Wiki so that has to be it.

Appreciate your help still with the Liberty Tree Mall and Lahey if anyone knows. Thanks again.

Another North Shore question as well. I've been trying to receive Northeast Ambulance on the County Communications LTR system. I haven't heard anything. Does anyone know if that's still active? I see it in the Wiki and on RadioReference (under Essex County Communications) and the SNE wiki has one additional channel as compared to RadioRef. But I just wonder if Northeast is still really using this old-style system. Thanks.

Northeast Regional Ambulance has switched to a NEXEDGE system. They are on the Georgetown site on this system: https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?sid=10309
They have kept the analog system as a backup.

I've been listening to this system trying to track down who is on TG 600. Someone some time back said it might be Pulse EMS, but there isn't enough traffic to be sure. I'll continue to listen when I'm in range to see who is on TG 600 and if Northeast Regional is on a different TG.
