A friend of mine in the area said they had’t heard the PD on the old 800 conventional in a few weeks.Also keep in mind I believe the fire department is there a simulcast in and or analog channels and I believe the PD is though simulcasting and their original 800 Single frequency but I’m not too sure I don’t live in the area
Hooked my HP 436 up to my outside antenna and heard nothing but dead silence for one hour. Drove over to the top of Benham Hill and picked up a couple of police transmissions. By the time I drove down to the Home Depot on Dixwell the transmissions disappeared.I did some rudimentary measurements on a few roads in that area near Benham St, including Paradise Ave, Lane Street, Circular Ave, Pine Rock Ave, and Dixwell down to the New Haven Line near Arch St.., then around Putnam Ave and Whitney Ave into Spring Glen....no issues whatsoever. Signal levels range from -75dBm to around -95 dBm. At the five corners (Circular, Helen, Putnam, and Dixwell), there was some minor signal issues eminating from the cell equipment located on top of that old bank at that corner, but other than that, a clean bill of health.
