I'll be in Boston for a few days next week (my hotel/work is actually in Revere). While I have the conventional stuff pretty much programmed in, will I be wanting the MSP Smartzone system or the Commonwealth Phase-2 system for more comms?

The MSP SmartZone and select Zone/Site 05

If you happen to be interested in Cambridge or Massport (da Airport) you will want the Phase 2 - where 99% is actually Phase I

And keep in mind, Cambridge does patch most of the TRS traffic to UHF T-Band conventional frequencies

How are you getting here, since Alaska Airlines discontinued the Seattle to Boston route?

BTW, the MSP TG you'll want for Revere is 33200 (A Patrol 2).

I only ask because I saw your location in your profile information. I found out, and made a bit of money, that Alask Air cancelled the Seattle - Boston route when a courier had to reroute at the last minute due to the discontinuation. I was just curious about your route.

ANC-PDX-BOS.


Thanks.

If you have any interest in business monitoring, the Industrial Communications and Enginnering, and Comtronics MotoTRBO systems have most of Revere's business traffic such as hotel shuttles and taxis. Site 1 for Comtronics and Sites 4 and 23 for the Industrial Communications and Engineering are your best bets.

Methinks the courier lied a little?

I will have to put those in one of my TRX-1s as well; thanks!

Lots of good listening on the public safety end in the Boston area. Not much encryption yet either which is a breath of fresh air. I believe only some college PD's are encrypted so far. Travel a little south to the Providence area and you'll find plenty of PD encryption. And you'll also find plenty of non encryption with departments that a fully capable to do so.
