Re: Laconia bike week freq's ?

Based on past and routine practices....

155.4750 PL136.5 - "LP-2" Primary BW Ops
151.3250 P25 - NHSP Troop-E Ops (and for BW Troop "W" Primary)
159.3150 P25 - NHSP "Talk-1" (Car-to-Car)
155.7900 P25 - Laconia Police Primary

159.9000 DPL331 - Lakes Region M/A Ch-1 Dispatch (all but Weirs Area)
160.1100 DPL331 - Lakes Ch-2 BW Dispatch
160.1550 DPL331 - Lakes Ch-3 Secondary
154.2800 PL136.5- Lakes Ch-4 Statewide Fireground
154.3025 DPL331 - Lakes Ch-5 Fireground
154.9875 DPL331 - Lakes Ch-6 Fireground (also Ch7-9 Repeater Output)
155.3250 PL141.3- DHART helo Ops
155.3475 PL136.5- Med Helo LZ Coord "Med Tac-2"
453.6500 PLvaries Southern Maine Med Helo Ops (Tx 458.6500)

Pretty much everything happens for PD on LP-2 and for SP on NHSP Troop-E (W). Additional traffic happens on Laconia Police including some out of town officers assigned that channel. The Communications/Command Center is set up in the Community Center above the Weirs Firehouse and dispatchers are called "Station-W" (LP-2) and "Troop-W" (Trp-E/W Freq). Troop-W assumes dispatch for W and E for the period. Some SP units are encrypted. Most are not. Additional repeaters and voting equipment has been brought in the past to the weirs to beef up the "E" repeater system.

Lakes Region M/A dedicates a dispatcher to Ch-2 and everything in Metro-Weirs is handled there. I believe Ch-4 is still the primary Tactical but not 100% sure.

Other frequencies may be used for car-to-car, tactical or BS traffic.

Last Year, the Troop-E frequency, 151.325, was the primary frequency for NHSP operations. They set up receivers and apparently some repeaters in the weirs area that tied into the E system and were specifically called "W". Troop-W was in full swing. At one point, W's system was down and all units were told to operate on E. Some local units were also on W, but it wasn't the local PD's channel. Also some SP units were encrypted P25. Talk-1 (159.315) was also in use although I never heard it personally (I was in Concord). If they do what they did last year, you should be able to hear most of the SP operations on Troop-E (151.325).

155.475 still appeared to be the primary area PD channel.

Also Laconia PD on 155.790 saw increased activity last year from neighboring PD's and state/county agencies. But again it didn't become the area PD's primary. LPD still operates in analog mode (PL-114.8), but almost all mobiles/portables are APCO-25 compatible and they do use it from time-to-time (dispatcher doesn't hear them or hears the P25 jibberish). You may see P25 use increased here.
