    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

Hi all,

I am trying to identifying a Capacity Plus system I discovered during a recent scanning trip, the signal comes in fairly strong in downtown Manhattan area by the Hudson River.

472.9875 MHz
Color Code 7
Neighboring Sites 3 and 8.

No voices were heard but there is some MOTOTRBO data bursts

I suspect this is KEB656, which has three sites at Edison, Kenilworth and Union. If someone in the area can help listen and see if there is a strong signal on 472.9875 in the abovementioned areas it would be helpful to positvely identify it.


Thanks

I only have an analog scanner, but I will check when I have a chance. Elizabethtown Gas has had a license for DMR for a long time, however last time I monitored them, they were still operating in analog FM. I am curious to see if that has changed.

I was told by my contact that works for E-Gas that they no longer use two way radios; rather they use Cellular PTT networks to talk to dispatch. However I will monitor when I get the chance to, to confirm this.

Well, I saw an E-town Gas smaller car in Kenilworth, NJ and as I was walking by, I did hear a radio going off inside the car while it was parked. Just not sure if it was analog, but sounded like it. Perhaps they still use radio sporadically, but use phones more often. I haven't had a chance to monitor yet. Been very busy with work.
