Canal Power Plant

#1 Post by jeffkett » 13 May 2019 10:56

It appears that the Cape Cod Canal Power Plant has taken one of its VHF frequencies over to DMR. KZX716 has 158.175 , 158.235, and 158.250. As of late the 158.175 looks looks like DMR. Discussions about valves, switches, pressures etc. Will have to see if they switched over the other 2. Jeff

FYI, I heard traffic on 158.175 this a.m. Loud and clear in North Mashpee, about 4.5 miles from the power plant. Nothing heard on the other frequencies to date.

Is it the same comms on the TG 101 on both slots? If so, it's indicative that this is a trunked system of some flavor.

Question, is the analog on the other frequency still there or is it gone? (158.2500 D754)

I heard TG 101 and 105. Running tests and checking system functions. No slot info.
