Low Band Frequencies

  • Originally used for Dispatching operations until the MA State Police 800 MHz TRS was put online.
  • The MSP Low-Band Frequencies have gotten second life in car to car use and secondary barracks use for when the Patrol Talk group is crowded
  • It is unknown if the former MDC Police stations in Boston have low-band capability. We have never heard any of the Boston area (former MDC Police) Barracks ID on the low-band system only car to car systems
  • Detectives are mostly use the Cellular Phone or the TRS
  • Low-Band is restricted to mobile and base radios only.

Massachusetts State Police Low-Band Freqs

  • All Low Band PL's are 141.3, except F-8 & F-9 where sometimes NO PL was used
