Last I tried to listen in the Hartford and Tolland Couty areas, they were unsing/heard on lo-band. It's been a few years, so i'm not sure what they are are up to now.

That was gonna be my guess, but wasn't sure. More use of MDTs and less use of radios.
The only time I hear anything is when a unit is experiencing a MDT issue...then its back to the old fashioned way

EverSource is building out a 200 MHz system for atleast CT and maybe the other states.

IT has only recently been slowly turned on, so the only information is going to come from folks who put their time into Search n Listen then share the info

Years ago when it was first known Eversource was building a 220 system I was told in Ct it was to be used for data, little or no voice at all. That may have changed. I am also led to believe the system is already being used in Ma. I haven’t done a search for Ma but it might be where you can get more info.

Western Mass - nothing found for RI or Eastern MA

And much in need of some confirmations since the page was built long ago

Western MA MPT1327 217 & 220 still active but it is a pain to confirm as it needs to be done with SDRTrunk.
CT is the new DMR system but the newer Tait radios can do both DMR & MPT1327.

Im gonna do a search on my scanner in the 200 and see if I get a dmr control channel signal. If I do then I’ll throw it into DSD.

If you are using DSDPlus Fast lane, simply use FMP24 and go to 217.00000. You then set the bandwidth to 7.6 and the step to 6.25. The frequency range for the CT sites is 217.00000 - 217.50000
If you are using the scanner, be sure your steps are 6.25KHz.

Many of the UHF frequencies in the database are in use with the 311 DPL. The only problem is I think they must have some of them patched through out the state, so you can't expect to always hear operations in the vicinity of the town the repeater is located in. I was hearing Danbury area repairs from the Bloomfield/Hartford repeater on 451.200 for example.
