Looking for Children’s Hospital Security in Boston

#1 Post by Motorola P25 » 31 Mar 2019 15:50

Hello
I’m looking for the frequencies and info for The Children’s Hospital in Boston. I think they’re running DMR because that’s what I’ve seen them carry, but not sure.

2 frequencies listed here in the Wiki Page.

http://www.scan-ne.net/wiki/index.php?t ... Operations

1. 855.0875 Pl 141.3
2. 151.985 DMR. Try the DMR one since you think they have DMR Radios. It would be great if you can update us if you can confirm what they use. Post other frequencies for the hospital for other departments like maintainance and Parking and such.

Try 855.0875 for DMR as well. The analog confirmation for that frequency is several years old, so Security could be on the Slot 2.
I'm not getting audio (due to distance), but there is DMR activity on 151.985 with a Color Code of 3.

Some of the Longwood area hospitals contract out security, so who is actually doing it and what radios they are using can change from time to time. I don't know if Children's does or not.
We're peace loving people, we're not hunting trouble, but if trouble should find us, we'll stand up and fight.

I've been looking for them as well since DMR came to Uniden. All traffic on 855.0875 has been related to facilities issues without any security-related conversation. I've only been able to receive voice traffic for 151.9850 Color Code 1 once, my notes mention "Bus 34" and "the Emmanuel Garage" which would make sense for Children's parking and/or security since Children's says that they do security escorts to the Emmanuel lot. Children's has the only license for that frequency in an area I would have realistically picked up with my setup at the time, and they're only licensed for 10 watts so it doesn't surprise me that we're having a hard time with it. They're one of the last hospital security departments I'm struggling with, along with Mass Eye and Ear and the Carney.

Hi Everyone,
Thanks for the replies, I might not be back there for awhile but they do contract security to Securitas. They are using MOTOTRBO radios because I have seen them and I have heard them key up with the usual TPT tone, but knowing those radios, the TPT tone doesn't always mean it's DMR. Again, I am not sure the next time I am up there, but I will try and sneak in my SDR and see what I can find.


Thanks again

Sorry everyone,
It looks like I was mistaken on 855.0875, I am hearing security operations on the frequency, and I just heard a user mention "covering at 7455," which I presume is 617-355-7455 (Children's Security office number). Further monitoring is needed to confirm 100% but it appears that security and facilities are on the same frequency and talkgroup (TG1). If someone else was able to have a listen too and confirm that would be great.

Now I'm no longer hearing security ops on 855.0875 on the Timeslot 2 so I have no idea what's going on. I only heard them for several days on that frequency.
