I'm putting together a favorite list for MA and I'm having a problem determining MSP troop coverage on RT-495.
I start in Trumbull,CT travel up Rt-84 in CT to Rt-90 (Troop"E") then I take RT-495 north to RT-95 to Houlton,ME.
From the map I'm thinking I'll be travelling through Troop C's area and then Troop A. Is that correct or am I actually in Troop H's territory ....
OR is there a dedicated troop for RT-495 like Troop E for the Mass Tpke.
I know I could use my GPS puck on my 536HP but I'm trying to really narrow it down.
Thanks for any help.

Rte-84 -- Rte-90 - Rte-495 would be Zone 8 for best coverage
Rte-495 around Rte-3/Rte-93 move to Zone 5
Rte-495 around Haverhill into NH use Zone 20

You will be traveling thru A, C, E and H Troops
495 for your trip will be H and then A

The only dedicated Troops are
E - Mass Pike [Rte-90 and Boston Highway System] and F - Logan Airport

Becarefull with the GPS use, it might put you on a Zone that no-one is affiliated to [C Troop] at that time and you will hear nothing.
The Zones listed above at the Wide-Area Simulcast sites, vs the Intellirepeaters

I have two FLs for MA that will give you a lot of agencies for both halves of the state. The eastern half is more detailed because that's where I am 90% of the time. If you want them, PM me with your email address.

I developed them using ARC536, but I think I can export them via Sentinel.

I also have a FL for ME, including the new, not quite yet in service MSCommnet statewide system.

C-PTL-3 for I-84, E-PTL-1 for the Pike, C-PTL-1 for I-495, A-PTL-1 once you cross Rt 2. You will not be in H-Troop.

Zone 8 should cover the state line until about Westford, then zone 5.

If I did this right, there should be three files uploaded from Sentinel. If not, I have no idea what I uploaded. :lol:

Got it on the second try. Three files in one zip. Eastern MA, Western and Central MA, ME.
