Default ARCH Air Medical

Is the dispatch frequency for ARCH Air Comm STL base 461.52500? What other frequencies does ARCH use and how do they work? Does the dispatch frequency dispatch ARCH like dispatchers do for public safety, or is it just helicopter operations? Thanks!

Default ARCH air

Also try 462.075 for the Litchfield tower. They use it a lot for comms near Springfield. The basic method is to call the base for the specific copter by phone and as they go airborne the call information is given to them. Also for IL, ARCH sometimes uses IREACH 155.055 for ground contact.

Default ARCH info / Wiki page

Don't forget to look at the information contained in the RR Wiki. Some of it is old and needs some updating.


Also, if you are on the fringe area of St Louis or Litchfield actual repeaters, you can also listen to the input frequency to hear the helo often much farther out transmitting, than the repeater output ( opposed to


If you are interested in such things, also look at AirEvac on the statewide EMS pages (IL/MO) and on the wiki page links from each page.
