That frequency information is correct. I checked with a buddy of mine who works out there. There's a rumor they're getting a completely new radio system sometime next year for both PD and Fire since the FCC is starting to push out Lowband stuff.

I know that coverage out there is spotty at best. I've been on scenes and havent been able to hit a tower with ANY of the Med Channels that are used off the Springfield OR Ware/Monson/Palmer areas.. its a logistical nightmare!

As of right now though, they're still on 155.6025 with a PL of 91.5

Enjoy!

?? The FCC and Low-Band ?? Hardly.

The FCC is pushing Re-Banding [800 Mhz] and Narrow-Banding [VHF High and into UHF, not sure on 800]

The low-band push is due to limited manuf's that are still producing equipment [you need to look, but it's not like the good ole days]

Good Evening,

I'm refurbishing an old Regency scanner (just like this one: http://cgi.ebay.com/250778276308[url] ) for someone who lives in Hampden MA, but before I buy the crystals, I want to make sure I get the right ones so I'm hoping someone can confirm Hampden PD and FD from any recent intercepts? I know they're interested in E.Longmeadow PD on 155.5500 and to Ludlow on 453.2500 PD, Wilbraham FD on 453.1250 (cant pick up their PD on 854.5375 with a crystal scanner), but I wanted to know if Hampden PD primary was still 155.6025, and is fire on 33.52 or do they have VHF, or do they dispatch via Police channel? Also, where is there a reliable place for crystals, I see some on ebay, but I also see some here: http://www.kenselectronics.com/lists/scanxtal.htm Thanks for your help, Squelchtone PS. The scanner works, it has Springfield Fire 154.1750 and Springfield PD ch 1 "901" 460.1000 installed and confirmed by me as working. The squelch adjust pot is a little scratchy, may need to use some contact cleaner on it or get a new one.

Time for a new scanner
Thanks for contributing to the thread, I appreciate it. The scanner belonged to the guys deceased father, he's trying to retain some sort of connection with his memories of the scanner sitting on the side table at his fathers house while he was younger. And if I can help by making it work again on the freqs of the town he now lives in, then that's what my plan is.

Best Regards,
Squelchtone

Scanner crystals

Squelchtone, your frequencies are correct except for Hampden Fire, which operates on 33.46... however they are looking into switching to VHF high band in the near future.
