I agree, 453.875 was a bad call in the first place.

Anyone catch a PL?

This will be the paging for FD's east of the William Floyd Pkwy.

I think they were getting too much interference w/Nassau Firecom on 453.875, which is why they switched. I think if they would have put a PL code on the freq, they would have been ok.

A PL only masks the problem, it doesn't solve it.

If anything, it's worse PL'd, because you may be getting interference from Nassau and might not even know it, resulting in degraded coverage. And of course there's the issue of Minitor pagers not being PL capable, so it really wouldn't matter if the transmitters are PL'd, the receivers are not and would pick up everything.

Frequency coordination for Suffolk to license 453.875 should've never happened in the first place. Not nearly enough geographic separation between the two simulcast cells, certainly not on such a flat expanse of land such as Long Island is.

Fix the issue by getting a new frequency...end of story.


Exactly

So far I have not heard any activity with UHF east. We are still being activated on lo band. If anything changes I'll let you know.

hello again all
My understanding is that the towers in Yaphank ,Riverhead ,and Southampton are essentially ready to go. UHF paging from FRES for departments that are between those sites, may be starting soon. I received my UHF pager from my department and 463.1875 is the frequency programmed in. My Pine Barrens feed already has it programmed in just waiting to hear some activity on the frequency. When it comes up and/or if there are any changes I will let you folks know.

Wonder if they are going to have an issue with interference on the new fres east channel from Connecticut. I've been picking up departments being paged out when the conditions are good.

... or for that matter, Ocean County, NJ. I get them (weakly) with PL71.9

I'm in the Islip area (if you couldn't tell by my name) and have not picked up East Paging at all. I pick up most uhf 6 div departments. Is this an issue on my part or is FRES no using the frequency?

463.1875 is not live yet it’s still in testing phase as the county gets more east end sites on the air. You may occasionally hear radio testing but no departments are getting activated on it yet
