Full Time RVer traveling the US of A
Another cruise.
NCL Epic
I boarded in Port Canaveral on 4/7/24 to Rome.
The first part of the trip had these DMR transmissions. I am in an interior cabin so no other transmissions received but these were solid.

457.525 CC3 SL1 TG 231 Pressures/PH/Chlorine
457.550 CC11 SL1 TG 232 Bridge/Lines
457.600 CC5 SL1 TG 233
457.575 CC6 SL1 TG 234 Engineering?
457.525 CC3 SL2 TG 235
457.550 CC11 SL2 TG 236 Fuel Load?
457.600 CC5 SL2 TG 237 Security checks
457.575 CC6 SL2 TG 238

Somewhere about half way across the Atlantic tings changed to the following:

457.5375 CC9 SL1 TG 241 Water Maint
457.5250 CC10 SL1 TG 242 Bridge (one trans ENCRY)
457.5500 CC11 SL1 TG 243 Emergency Drill radio checks
457.5750 CC12 SL1 TG 244
457.5375 CC9 SL2 TG 245 Excursions in port
457.5250 CC10 SL2 TG 246 Washing something
457.5500 CC11 SL2 TG 247 Security/door checks
457.5750 CC12 SL2 TG 248 (in Spanish)

I wonder if it might be a location licensing thing where they had to change everything up?
Also, I am using a SDS100 and I display UID. I am wondering what this is as across all it is 390. I was looking for maybe a radio id.
Another item of note. During the drill in Spain in port these was one transmission that changed the Digital Status from DMR to ENCRY. I am thinking this means it was encrypted. But I thought all encrypted traffic would be blocked.

how interesting that during mid passage things would change on the CC front as would the TG's
i would love to see the rational in that
its as if they know in transit that their ship board comm's might interfere with a sister ship or ?
next time I go on a cruise I will endeavour to ask the officer in charge of electronics / systems etc to see if they could shed some light

Was thinking they have Multiple Zones to preclude any potential port interference and maybe they switched Zones....but that is just speculation
but nice to note the change from 23x TG's to 24x TG's once outside of Port Canaveral.
