Wonder if anyone is able to pick up the RISCON system in Rhode Island from eastern CT. I live in Jewett City which is only about 10 minutes from the border. I can't pick it up with my 800 mhz antenna with my handheld psr500. Thought maybe if I installed one up in the attic. But don't want to waste the money if it's not going to work.

Really from Niantic? That's impressive. I think I'm gonna get an antenna and install it up in the attic and give it a try.

I found my gre super amplifier and hooked it up. If I hold the scanner up to the ceiling I am able to barely get a signal from the control channels of the north and south zone. I'm hopeful that a better antenna placed high in the attic will do the trick. Also picked up a weak signal from the msp system so it would be nice if I can pick that up too.

You know why you can't hear RISCON up in Jewett City? Because no one goes up to Jewett City, not even radio waves :0)

... can I get a rim shot? Thanks folks, I'm here all week. Remember to tip your waitress early and often.
