No the repeater is still down. talked to the moto guy that put it up and the county has no intention on paying for the license. Trust me i want it back up cause it is a pain to have to carry my radio and a low band pager to hear all fire calls.
Schoharie County VHF Hi-band simulcast of 46.18 has been moved to 151.0775 PL 179.9.
153.7625 is no longer used and was never licensed for use by Schoharie County...
151.0775 is licensed to Jefferson Fire District WQEJ928. I monitored the Saturday Noon Siren and Pager test today and it appears to work very well. Probably on Petersburg Mountain. Very strong signal here at my location.
I submitted the information to RR.... so there should be an update coming soon.
If you look at there license there running 2 repeaters one on 151.0775 and one one 155.415 as well as 151.160 for a base station looks like to me its on someones farm off Mt Jefferson rd...i looked and there the only ones licensed in this spot....so cant be a very popular spot...
Well just because the license says it's locate at XYZ does not mean they are transmitting from the licensed location. Believe me it goes on more than you know. Also there are agencies operating on expired licenses. Additionally, some frequencies listed on licenses are no longer used but the keep getting renewed.
So you can't always go by what is says on the license.... just saying!
