You are receiving the Anne Arundel Site not Knoxville, they both have the same frequency (773.83125). I have had that happen to me on the Shore before thinking it is a far away site but actually a local site because frequencies are "reused" throughout the State with different sites.

NAC should pin it down to which site you're receiving.

While monitoring the new Ocean City P25 system on Coastal Highway just south of Rt 90 this morning, I was getting 3 bars for the FiRST Wicomico County site on my G5... Yesterday, I was seeing 3 bars on the Worcester County P25 system on the G5 from Vienna (Dorchester/Wicomico county line on Rt 50).

Needless to say my scanners didn't come close (at all).

There was a patch last night to 7506 to a NRP Area 5 Conventional Frequency. I wounder if they will migrate soon over. Most of Area 5 counties already have FiRST Towers (Baltimore County, Baltimore City, Carroll, & Howard) but not Montgomery.

Has anyone been out to Western MD to see if the Allegany or Garrett County sites are up? I would think they would be up or be up soon. Any time table of when Allegany or Garrett counties will move over to FiRST?

If anyone is in Washington County and runs Unitrunker, are there any "Peers" listed that could be these new sites?

I'm here....not a peep out of any FIRST towers yet, 2 to 3 towers are constructed

From reading the minutes of the comm managers allegany county is about 1 to 2 years behind in the build out, Our county comm has floated a 10M $$$$ bond for radios

Enjoy

Default Far wm first

If anyone can run unitrunker on the hancock/sidling hill ASR site for any neighbors, an Allegany county tower would/may be spotted...also no FCC license's issued to the MD DOIT folks except for Helo 5 and the air and med channels for Dans Mt...so far no activity on these 2 freqs either....Troymail discovered them in the fall of 2017 off the FCC database.and they were posted here.

Most of the freqs for Allegany County are under the state's master license, so you may not have separate call signs / entries in the FCC database for sites in Allegany County.

These were the planned frequencies for Allegany & Garrett according to a filing with the FCC from years ago. Not sure if this helps...

8292 Appears to be another Statewide Aviation Tac. Earlier there was a flyout in Cecil and it was patch in for Trooper 1.

8291 is another. It was used for a Flyout in Kent.


8288, 8289, 8291, & 8292 are Aviation Tac Channels. Anyone know more about these talkgroups?

8292 Cecil

Hancock was not showing any neighbors for Allegany County as of last week. Also do you know if Paw Paw and/or other mainline companies in Morgan/Hampshire will have access to the system since they do head over the river to back up 13 Fire/EMS?

Forgive me for being uninformed on this system as I am new to it. My fire department is looking to outfit our units with radios that are capable of working on the FIRST system. Rather than spending the several thousand on the APX radios will the XTL radios work on the system if they have the 700 Mz P25 set up?

Or will the Kenwood NX-5900 Series work on it? Just trying to find the most economical way to outfit our units.
