Boston City Services

Boston City Services are on Massachusetts State Trunk Zone 1 and CoMIRS 700 Mhz Overlay

Please note that the Boston City Trunk System has been shut down and that all Boston City Services which operated on the trunk have been moved to the Massachusetts State Trunk Zone 1 and 700 Mhz overlay. All Boston City Services have been given new talk groups and some have been confirmed while others will need identification. This is a work in progress. There are obvious "holes" of missing talk groups here, which could be little used talk groups which can be filled in later. And known active talk groups attributable to the City of Boston, which need to be identified by department and use. Nearly all talk groups only associate exclusively to Zone 1, some may associate with a neighboring zone, such as the Sheriff's Department or Fire and Police. All input is welcome.

There are two tables on this page. One lists the 700 CoMIRS overlay talkgroups, the other the MSP Zone I talkgroups. Many talkgroups are duplicated, but not all.
