Rptr sites have been mentioned in the past as:
Groton, Bolton, Sterling and Hartford.

Input is 163.9375. I would say 9375 is a common CT input with
multiple outputs. Where 171.8000 actually is, is still something to track down

Other outputs on the same input are:
167.5125 Hartford Area
169.9500 Sterling, New London, North Stonnington, Bozrah

The one common input, does cause confussion in trying to ID where the sites are :twisted:


been picking up 171.800 in connecticut every day. with a pl of 167.9.. its very loud
but enc.

Expand your Federal UHF to be 406-420 and if it CAN [some scanners won't] try 400-420 Mhz :D

Have you ever received any voice traffic between 400 and 406 mHz?

Yup. The inputs to this system are in the 401-403 band
P25 Trunk with a NAC of $185 :twisted:

Caught them in Boston last May, and there was a Great article on the "WHITE WHALE" by Chris Parris in Oct MT

Have you ever received any voice traffic between 400 and 406 mHz?

171.8000 is a repeated FBI/US Customs Shared channel in new haven. the only reason i know this is because about 4 years ago i heard customs and fbi doing a raid with no encryption P25 on that channel, and it blew my mind, there was no encryption, opps...

they mentioned team, unit numbers, locations, what type of vehicle they were following,
how many individuals at different locations. they would talk about every 5 min. it was
all in the clear. i dont want to mention locations of vehicles they were watching or where
they were. the signal was strong and in the clear. i been searching 163.600 to 174 for
about a hour when i heard this. it sounded like more than one agency was involved.

George, I noticed you were searching 163.600 to 174.000 you might want to expand down to 162.6000 [just above the NWS] and the little forgotten [because it's just below the NWS] 162.000-162.3750

Twas it CT or RI units?, conflicting reports of Unit ID's

they mentioned team, unit numbers, locations, what type of vehicle they were following,

Could you see if you are also getting 171.4375 $167 at the same time as 171.9875. I've heard the .4375 channel referred to as the Providence 1 repeater, wondering if these two could be related.
I heard it from here in Milford and it was too weak to be in Ct. so RI is probably the location. I heard both sides fine. It had to be a repeater. I am talking about the .9875 freq.

they named two places about 20min to 30 min from where i live.
im about 7 miles from mohegan sun casino. it was so loud it sounded
like they were next to me. one location was a park they would meet at.
it could of well been a joint task force. it sounded like the t.v show
u.s marshalls talking. the freq and the 167 showed up every time.
i do have an outside antenna about 8 ft above my roof.
