Gonset - I found one in the squadron supply and now sits on my desk with a couple other relics.

NH has begun the move to the Narrowband channels and mixed mode Rptrs [Analog and P25]

148.1250 - Derry
148.1500 - Laconia

Other Rptrs still waiting to be migrated.

Best time to listen is 1900-2000 hrs Local during the Wing Nets. [Top of the Hour]

Post what you hear.

I didn't want to add the new P25 channels, until we actually start to hear them in use. Nothing here in New England yet, altho rumors of the Repeaters sitting on pallets to be shipped [likely after the spring snow runs off]

Unfortunately I'm a little too far south to capture the NH NAC.
A Few units have been P25 during the 1900 hrs NET

Anyone in NH, ME or VT ????

Keep an ear on the existing Channels / Tones.
When the changes occur, you will likely see PL Tones change.

Anyone else capture the new Narrowband Rptrs yet?

Default Nj cap

NJ CAP will be holding a drill on the 27th.

Might be a good time to listen up and report back
the new Repeater info. According to some web searches, the
NJ Wing has completed the swap-out of all Rptrs to Narrowband.

I heard some CAP guys here in SE FL on 148.1250 PL 103.5 (Martin County area) talking about getting their radios "updated" in the next week or so. One guy was asked if he wanted to bring his radio in to be done because they were going to bring several to some other place and do them at the same time, and he said he never read that 28 page document, so he was going to wait. Sounded like they were going ahead of schedule.

Changes are a coming!

Those are the CAP channels that were listed in the "Frequency Plan" document that was removed from a Navy web site and cached on Google about 3 years ago.

Based on Monitoring here in New England

the new Primary CAP Rptr is 148.1250 and the Secondary Rptrs are on 148.1500

All inputs [143.7500 and 143.9000, change as well] will be on NEW frequencies

As Wings swap out the old Rptrs, look for the existing CTCSS tone to change.

Much has changed in the years since the Narrowbanding was proposed, and lilkely frequencies were added and deleted

I would spend my time figuring these out, during NET Nights [1800-2100]
When you see new Tones [find the old ones first] and they talk about the NEW Rptr vs the Old Rptr and who can access the new one... kind of helps

I have both of them in as "search", so whatever they do on these freqs I will see the codes. Any word on new simplex or direct channels?

Not at this time, sounds like 1250 & 1500 will be Rptrs ONLY [narrowband]

What I have done is taken the info [rumored] from the MT Air Show guides
as well as the Older Wideband Stuff and left them in One Bank.

What's nice is already knowing the Sites and Tones, then watch during NET nights for the change to PL and now we know it's the new radios in the Region. Then we can watch/listen for FTX, Drills, etc.

Heard "Charter Oak" here in Connecticut with a radio test last night on 148.125 Digital mode using NAC 61F
He also did a radio test on 2 other repeaters using PL 156.7 and PL 123.0

So in some places they use the tone converted to decimal (1567 = $61F) and yet locally I've seen $162 used to represent 162.2. I thought they were supposed to standardize that?

Good Finds, did they ID what Repeaters?? ie: City/Town/site?
What time was this NET???

$61F = 156.7 Hz
$4CE would be for 123.0 Hz

Depends on "WHO" you mean.

71.9 XA $2CF
74.4 WA $2E8
77.0 XB $302
79.7 WB $31D
82.5 YZ $339
85.4 YA $356
88.5 YB $375
91.5 ZZ $393
94.8 ZA $3B4
97.4 ZB $3CE
100.0 1Z $3E8
103.5 1A $40B
107.2 1B $430
110.9 2Z $455
114.8 2A $47C
118.8 2B $4A4
123.0 3Z $4CE
127.3 3A $4F9
131.8 3B $526
136.5 4Z $555
141.3 4A $585
146.2 4B $5B6
151.4 5Z $5EA
156.7 5A $61F
162.2 5B $656
167.9 6Z $68F
173.8 6A $6CA
179.9 6B $707
186.2 7Z $746
192.8 7A $788
203.5 M1 $7F3
206.5 8Z $811
210.7 M2 $83B
218.1 M3 $885
225.7 M4 $8D1
229.1 9Z $8F3
233.6 M5 $920
241.8 M6 $972
250.3 M7 $9C7


Other agencies [Federal 3 Letters] tend to go from
167.9 Hz = $167
156.7 Hz = $156

Others? Throw it against the Wall and see if it Works/Sticks

I know what other agencies use but I was questioning CAP. I recall reading some document (or post?) that said they were going with a specific conversion.

Negative on a Net, Bill. Just a guy saying "Charter Oak radio test 1-2-3....." and then he repeated it with the other 2 PL's. I have the Pro-106 and it decodes the NAC and/or Ctcss/DPL immediately.
Charter Oak is the callsign for the Ct. CAP wing.

I think CT runs a net at 1900 hrs Local [Mon-Fri] You might get some of the other Repeaters. I find it hard to phathom that CT is covered by only 2 Rptrs...

There is a drill going on right now here in FL around Palm Beach County on channels V3 & V4 (simplex) with PL 100.0. "Highbird", "Recon One", and "CAP Foward" are some of the callsigns. I am searching and looking for P25. None heard yet.

I'm also hearing packet bursts on 148.6500. Unknow if this is related.

Philbert, out ~
