Default Baltimore City 800 MHZ

Does anyone know if the Baltimore City 800 MHZ is down? Was listening to the fire side and radio went dead. Also checked the 'live feed' and I'm not receiving anything on their either.

When did you last hear/receive it? I was in the city last night and it was fine -- but I cannot really receive it from my house.

Apparently they just rebanded!!!! Currently using a control channel of 853.737. All the Talkgroups appear to be the same so far.

Yep. 853.737 is now being used as the control channel. Saw this post and turned on Baltimore City. Dead silent while the conventional simulcast had traffic. Added 853.737 to the 800 frequencies on the trunked bank and voila! Working again.

Control channel changed in database. Please advise if the other frequencies have been rebanded, and I'll get them updated. Thanks.

Just saying thanks for the quick posts of the Baltimore members. I am in Baltimore for a meeting this week and had the city trunked system programed and enjoyed monitoring it when I could. On returning from dinner I noticed PD and EMS activity in front of the hotel and when I turned on the scanner I found it wasn't tracking the system. Entered the new CC's posted in the forum and back in business.

Thanks baloo!

Was wondering why I was not receiving AGAIN. Control channel had again changed. Have programmed all of the frequencies you provided and working again. Passing this on to the guys that run the dispatch and fireground feed on here. They will get to it sometime today.

I have a PSR 800 and it pulls data from the RR DB. If I do a library update will that get me on my feet again?

Thx in advance- newb

Cruz, yes. The newly discovered freqs are in the database and should get you working. That being said, there is no guarantee that all of the changes have been discovered.

The main thing is that the CC frequencies are posted on RR -- as long as they are there before the 800 library rebuild tomorrow, you should be fine.

Interestingly enough, the didn't have to "touch" our subscriber equipment at all. I assume that the radio had both sets of frequencies (pre- and post-reband) and when the radios lost the pre-, it automatically searched for and locked onto the post-reband frequencies.
