Default 153.02 MHz Carrier

I am constantly receiving a carrier on 153.02 DCS 115 with no voice. What is this channel for? I can hold on that frequency any time of the day and it is always on.

I searched the RR database and found nothing matching 153.02 with 115DPL in CT, MA, or RI. Sorry!

Is it like a open mic? If not maybe it is just interference?

It is not an open mic; just constant carrier with that DPL. No idea what it is, but it is always on no matter what time of the day.

I believe it is something to do with ATT/Cingular. They transmit 120 wattsout of Agawam. Unsure what it is though. Call sign WPXM268

I was gonna say it was a birdie on the scanner but with the PL showing who knows where it's coming from. Depending where you are, have you checked the surrounding states for that frequency in use?

It's not a birdie. There are occasional beeps on the frequency. I'm just gonna go with what Chris found.

The answer is....

Quote:
WPXM268 New Cingular Wireless, Rptr, 591 N West St, Agawam, 60/120-ERP.
It is this antenna (the only antenna of this type) on the AT&T (Cingular) tower on Provin Mountain in Feeding Hills (Agawam), MA.
Close call hits on the way close to the tower, and at the top of the mountain, the frequency is receiveable without any antenna or RF adaptor on the receiver.
So the answer is its coming from there....

I still have access to the mountain. It's where WWLP & WAQY (Rock 102) transmit from. I stopped by today to confirm.

Should be off now. The techs resolved the issue with the repeater, which is no longer used.
They found the link-transmitter had shut off, and for some reason, it caused the repeater to key up.

WOnder if them thar radio people ever heard of a Time Out timer? 60 seconds would have worked...unless some other gizmo was bypassing it....And if there not using it wouldn't it be nice to release the frequencies....by cancelling the repeater or whole license

It had been on for quite some time. Every time I went though 150-155 I would get caught on that frequency, and also a POCSAG paging frequency on 152.600.
