They are on 159.705, (which is a repeater with an input of 153.440). I believe the repeater is located up on
Quirock Mountain.

I hear them up here in PA all the time, and they also share that input frequency with a local school bus company!

Thanks for the info. I'm in Johnstown so it's hard to say if I'll hear them or not. They have been flying into this area on occasions. I've been hearing them in communication with LifeComm on the MedStar frequency. I'll give it a try.

By chance do you have a PL tone for them ??

You may not here them up in Johnstown, but give it a try. You can always listen on the input frequency, you should at least hear the aircraft.

And no, I don't have a PL tone for them...sorry. I never really tracked PL tones for PS communications until recently. I guess I should when I upgrade my scanner to a new one here soon.

PS: Keep us advised if you can here the base on 159.705 up there...I will be curious to see the coverage area of that repeater.

I've heard them with flights to Hershey, York, Baltimore and Johnstown, so I suspect they probably also use local frequencies when they are within range. I think I heard them once or twice on the LifeLION/Hershey frequency of 155.355 as well.

Here are couple of Web pages for reference:

Air Methods - Air Methods | The World's Largest Air Ambulance Operator

Maryland: Region gets new air medical transport service

Air Methods - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

What is the MedStar frequency up there...perhaps you can pass that along?

I've been monitoring for two days now with the Icom 7000. The squelch broke once, which doesn't mean anything. I have a feeling it's going to be a bust on hearing anything.

Conemaugh MedStar is also an Air Methods ship. Their primary frequency is 464.2750 PL 100.0. I'm not sure where the repeater is located but coverage is decent.

Thanks for the information. I probably won't be able to receive it down here, but I'll give it a try anyway.

I have had their frequency (159.705) in the mobile scanner lately and picked up some voice comms last night using 503 DPL, but there was so little traffic that I was unable to confirm it was LifeNet. I'll keep listening, but this may be their tone.

Has anyone found any listing for LIFENET in the FCC database or anywhere ? I have had a couple transmissions in on 153.545 recently.
