Darn I wish I'd seen this post before today's game....

Where in the ULS pages does it mention MOTOTRBO?

Look in the "Frequencies" tab. Then click the "Emissions" link. You'll see the emission code for MOTOTRBO: 7K60FXE.

By the way, they were using analog today - no TRBO yet. However, I did see at least one employee with a TRBO radio. Maybe they'll make the switch after this season...

I got distracted chasing down the stadium security frequencies (some under that license still UNID in RR), I completely forgot about the Ravens-owned frequencies...but they're in there now....

Hearing them now. Still analog, apparently. Looking at one right now....463.8 MHz with a DCS of 245.

Yes, they are still analog. 463.8000 is used for parking. This frequency is active on non-gamedays.

Here's what I have for the Ravens and Maryland Stadium Authority:

M&T Bank Stadium (Baltimore Ravens)
463.5250 [ d627] Security/Administration (Channel 1)
463.6500 [ d125] Guest Services
463.6750 [ d331] Ticketing/Box Office
463.7250 [ d311] First Aid
463.7500 [ d271] Housekeeping (Channel 13)
463.8000 [ d245] Parking
463.8500 [ d624] Alcohol Compliance?
464.2000 [ d654]
464.3000 [ d165] Special Events?
464.4250 [ d155] Audio/Visual
464.7000 [ d423] Cheerleader/Entertainment Coordination
464.9000 [ d155] Field Security?

460.7125 [ d445]
461.0250 [ d223] Food; Aramark?
461.5375 [ d073] Food
461.5500 [ d712] Gates
462.4500 [ d331] Fireworks Coordination? (9/16/07 game)
463.4625 [ d627] frequency counter hit (9/16/07 game)
463.4625 [ d565] "register" (monitored 9/3/05 during University of Maryland/Navy football game)
464.6125 [ d155] "got an official"; "ready for test"
464.9000 [ d205] Private Security (Channel 3)
466.6750 [ d165]
469.9000 [ d271] Private Security

Maryland Stadium Authority (MSA)
453.1500 [ d532] Audio/Visual Engineering
453.3750 [ d174] Engineering/Maintenance
453.5500 [ d464] Engineering/Maintenance
453.8750 [ d343] Security (Scalper/Vending Enforcement)
453.9500 [ d351] Security (Scalper Enforcement)

These are from my Baltimore page (Baltimore). Guess I'll have to add them to RR sometime.

By the way, it looks like the MSA will be switching to TRBO as well, based on their license (WPMM282).

All right...it's a year later...does anyone know if the Ravens, the Maryland Stadium Authority, and/or SAFE have gone to MOTOTRBO? They all have the TRBO emission designators on their licenses, but they could still be using the frequencies in analog mode. I'd like to know if anything significant has changed before I take a trip up there.

Here are the relevant licenses:

Ravens: ULS License - Industrial/Business Pool, Conventional License - WPMQ692 - BALTIMORE RAVENS
SAFE: ULS Application - Industrial/Business Pool, Conventional - 0005450365 - S.A.F.E. MANAGEMENT INC
Maryland Stadium Authority: ULS License - Public Safety Pool, Conventional License - WPMM282 - MARYLAND, STATE OF - MD Stadium Authority (MSLA)
NFL: ULS License - Industrial/Business Pool, Conventional License - WQPL821 - NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE

If anyone knows for sure, please pass along the information. Thanks!

I found a PDF letter of a request for a narrowbanding waiver of the frequencies used by the Maryland Stadium Authority, the Ravens, the Orioles, and Maryland Sportservice. The MSA claims that the Camden Yards Sports Complex will not be narrowband-compliant by January 1, 2013, so this leads me to believe that they are still using analog and holding off on the TRBO switch until after the new year. They think they can be narrowband by March 1, 2013.

http://apps.fcc.gov/ecfs/document/view;jsessionid=5yLFQ6sZmmLTvbW7xK8R2sVypY6CvMV4x6jNGGbhKnl7MJ3WKWHd!-224088840!-56284754?id=7022008016

Still, if anyone knows for sure whether or not they are using TRBO, I'd appreciate a confirmation.

Had to work today's game, didn't get much idle time in the truck, but from what little I got to hear today (was experimenting with a USB SDR), sounds like M&T/MSA is still analog. I know I heard security and parking, at least...

Thanks for checking this out. I figured they were still analog. We'll have to check again in the spring, when the Orioles season gets underway.

Asking again - does anyone know if M&T Bank Stadium, SAFE, and/or Maryland Stadium Authority have switched to DMR? They all have the emissions codes for DMR on their respective licenses.

I was wondering, since the big Army-Navy game is tomorrow at the stadium.

Thanks,
Dave
