Default Looking for frequencies for trip

Hello Everyone,
I make trips back and forth from Indy to Pleasant Hill, TN (near Crossville). My route takes me through Louisville down 65 to Cave City, to Glasgow & Thompkinsville and then across the state line. I'd like to set up both my scanners and my 2m & 70cm rig for the trip. In one scanner I'll have fire and police, standard VHF & UHF systems and the other scanner will have trunked systems, analog and or digital as needed. Any sytems that you could supply for these would be great.
As for the amature radio side of things I want to set up the repeaters and so on as well for both 2m and 70cm systems for this route as well. I have a Yaesu FT7800R so I have plenty of memories to set that up with. I already have the Indiana & TN repeaters set up.

Thanks in advance for any help on this!

Usually I'd just say just use the RR Database but since I'm having a great day so far I'd figure I'd help ya out.

Lets See:

Bullitt County Fire: 154.325
Hardin County:
Radcliff PD: 155.685
Elizabethtown PD: 155.250
Hardin County Sheriff: 156.210
KSP Post 4: 460.1375 ( Elizabethtown Transmitter Frequency Only )
Hart County Fire: 155.400
Hart County Sheriff: 155.520
Barren County Sheriff: 453.625
Barren County Fire: 154.415
Warren County: http://www.radioreference.com/module...ame=RR&sid=958
( Didn't feel like typing all that out )

Ham Radio:
Louisville: Using .600 +/- Offset:
146.940 - 67.0 PL
147.180 - 88.5 PL
146.700 - 79.7 PL

Radcliff: 146.925 -
Elizabethtown: 146.980
Cave City: 146.940

Hi Viper,

KSPD uses mostly UHF conventional APCO-25 so will need to be programmed in the digital scanner. They are very active from Ashland to Louisville as I travel through on I-64 and reports form others indicate statewide use.

A view of this page http://www.radioreference.com/module...ame=RR&aid=720 indicates you will need to program the frequencies for Post 4 and 3 plus the three statewide APCO-25 freqs at bottom of page.

Note the channel A and B reference at top of page and due to annoyance the non-active freq may need to be locked out as you travel. However, it may change on return trip. I handle this with V-Scanner in the GRE scanner by reloading the KT folder on return trip with all unlocked and then re-lock any annoyance as it occurs.

Both strong repeaters locally

Radcliff: 146.925 -
Elizabethtown: 146.980

One 440 repeater strong in the Louisville Area but not worth entering.

Be careful and enjoy
