RDC Communications Talk Group

Post by Mark SNE Moderator »

Just heard Talk Group 3204 simulcasting a USCG Ch.16 broadcast. This is in the wiki as a possible US Towboats talk group. Not sure if this is one and the same but from the sounds of it it's definitely USCG Ch.16.

There are several TG's for various different marine channels, or combinations of channels. Gary, these are on the Mashpee and Yarmouth systems. Network 178. I believe they may be for US Towboat purposes. The receive antenna is clearly in a great location, as was/is US Towboats on their UHF frequencies. The audio on these talkgroups is muddy though, or was the last time I listened.

I've heard at least one of these TGs on the Fall River site as well, which is why I asked. I can't get the New Bedford site, but it wouldn't surprise me if they are there as well.

I don't recall how clear the audio was, but of course that can vary from site to site and even among different frequencies on the same site.

As Scott said, it was either Mashpee or South Yarmouth site. I only monitor those sites. Audio was superb.

All set Mark. I am not as concerned about which site, just updated the TG info and reconfirmed.
