ONSET FIRE DEPARTMENT
Onset voters were not completely happy with the $14
Million proposal for a new fire station at the May
15, 2017 District Meeting. Much discussion
about the location of the proposed station and the
bottom line cost ultimately resulted in an amendment
to cap the cost at $8 Million... well under what was
sought. More to follow....
May 28, 2017
NANTUCKET FIRE DEPT
The proposed Nantucket Fire Headquarters Fire
Station project has apparently been put off for
another year. The town approved $15 Million
for the station in 2015, but the station was not
built. Another $2 Million was added in 2016. Bids
for the work came in above that amount and the town
has decided rather than hold a special meeting, they
will come back prior to the Spring 2018 meeting, no
doubt for additional funds.

SCANNERS AND RE-BANDING ISSUES
Many of you who monitor
Cape Cod Fire and Police Departments on various "trunk tracker"
style scanners may have noticed problems recently with the
implementation of the re-banding of the Massachusetts State Police (MSP)
Trunked Radio system.
Re-banding is a
national reallocation of radio frequencies that has been underway
for several years across the country. The local switchover took
place in March 2013.
The changes were
expected to make many older scanners obsolete,
It is possible
that many, if not all of the newer and older scanners
WILL WORK if reprogrammed with the updated frequencies. Older
scanners including the BC780, BC785, BC895, Radio Shack units, and
others will work if re-programmed!
I recommend you
break out the Owners Manual if you haven't already, or download an
online version, brush up on the basics of programming your scanners
and give it a try. YOU WILL BE HAPPY!
Here is a list of
the frequencies used by the system. If you enter them correctly
(make sure you enter them as M (Motorola) TRUNK channels, they

with what you want to listen to.
For those who are
not already aware, you can also listen to the action online as well.
The LIVE SCANNER FEEDS that were previously on
RadioReference.com have been moved over to a system called
BROADCASTIFY.com. You can listen to
many different feeds, but should check out the local Cape Cod Fire
Departments on the feed provided which covers all the Cape Fire
Departments, including OPS channels, and as a bonus also gets much
