was down in mystic on oral school rd for a couple hours today and the same one day last week... while doing some scanning i came across 935.4625 control channel. its EDACS narrow band confirmed this morning. i tried a few other trunking modes and EDACS narrow was the only one that it hooked onto. here is a list of the frequencies that i got off of the FCC's website.....

935.1625
935.3875
935.4625
935.4875 control
936.3875
936.9250
937.9125
937.9875
938.8875
938.9625.

i picked it up with a 5 out of 6 signal and it is licensed to Northeast Utilities.... just wondering if someone knows the correct LCN for that system... apparently they have those systems set up across the state in addition to their 200mhz mpt1327 systems.

937.9875 should be the other frequency at that site. If you want to put them to try it, use LCN 1 for 935.4625 and LCN 2 for 937.9875.
They are all between 935 and 940 and can be recognized by the steady data noise. There is Nextel in that same range that will be more of a pulsing signal.

Originally it was to be a voice and data system for Western MA and CT (all of Northeast Utilities). They have since gone with the 217 MHz MPT1327 system for voice in Western MA. That will expand down into CT with 220 MHz freqs from what I have monitored and read. I don't know what they will be switching over to it in terms of users, but in Western MA I hear service crews and meter readers and there were construction and garage units.
The 900 MHz system is still being developed but not to the extent it was planned. Massachusetts was cut out of the system. The system users as of now seem to be all data, probably monitoring loads and controlling remote cutouts, etc. There were supposed to be 36 sites up and running by the end of 2009 with another 8 or so in 2010.
