  • Worcester County uses a General CMED setup with ambulances transmitting on 468 and hospitals transmitting on 463. Patch Channels are assigned in the following order: 2, 5, 1, 7, 3. This allows both Worcester and Boston CMED to have three patch channels available at any given time without interference. Med 2, 3, and 5 are "incomplete repeaters".
  • 03 March 2007 - Worcester CMED channel assignment order is as follows: 2, 5, 7, 1, 8. Med 3 is a direct, repeated channel for Athol Memorial Hospital. Med 6 is a direct, repeated channel for Henry Heywood Hospital in Gardner. Ambulances do not need to contact Worcester CMED, they simply get on Med 3 or Med 6. Most towers have repeaters that can be activated for communications during intercepts. Not all towers have all channels available. As a rule, operators try not to leave the repeaters on, due to patient privacy concerns. -jknox7230
