Dispatch Communications reconfirmations

Post by n1zyy »

Running a Yagi pointed into Boston and set up the scanner in LCN Analyzer and then some Discovery.

Do we want to add them to https://www.snewiki.com/wiki/index.php/ ... n_Our_Area BTW? I went looking for it there and it was conspicuously absent.

Boston

I am bolding the bit I've changed in the hopes that this is helpful.

I propose removing the "CWID" and "Voice and CWID" comments. Every repeater in an LTR trunk will ID on an x-LCN-253 talkgroup periodically, so they should all have a CWID. There's little to no activity anymore here, but every frequency in an LTR can be a voice channel, so it's not a meaningful distinction.

Interesting to note that LCNs 02 and 12 were active in the past few years but have gone away. Could they have been repurposed?

Waltham and Georgetown
Not due for reconfirmation, but the recent reconfirmations on the wiki match my observations.

Hudson, NH

(Mark recently confirmed the 01 LCN. I was able to confirm the other two.)

Talkgroups - Waltham

0-01-069 had activity, but not enough to ID any of it

0-01-132 had what sounds like a stuck mic but no discernible communications, but suggests there are still radios on the talkgroup

0-01-076 This sounds like a locksmith, possibly based in Woburn.

Talkgroups - Hudson

None due for reconfirmation, but a little pedantry: 1-01-030 for Dee Bus on the Hudson LTR should be 0-01-030. Only the Boston trunk has an area code of 1; the other Dispatch ones are all 0. This may not be significant in programming some scanners, but if you look at something like a discovery run or program it into a commercial radio, they're 0 for the area code.

Dispatch is in the Commercial Trunk list

Wiki updated for the LCN's and TG's - Thanks - some were long overdue
