Default National Grid

Hey folks ~ Does anyone know if the National Grid frequencies are still accurate/updated in the RR database?

I have the ones listed loaded but don't seem to get much out of them. Are they still conventional or have they gone digital?

Thanks in advance.

I'm going to assume they are. I was up along the Saint Lawrence Seaway and my 536 had the full database running and I picked up some National Grid channels. Offhand I forget which ones, though

Ok, thank you.

I'm guessing they aren't analog anymore or my conventional unit would be picking them up. It's the only one I have hooked up to my ST2 since it's too much/not needed for my local P25.

Of course that's assuming they should be talking with all the storm activity/power line situation going on the last couple days...

I still hear Nat Grid in the Cobleskill area on 153.650. I don't hear them regularly, but from time to time at least this freq is used in this area.

I receive National Grid conventional frequencies on 153.425 and 153.665 here in Onondaga County so those two frequencies are accurate in the RR database.

I wasn't sure if I was missing something with their system or not. Thank you.

Thanks plum and chase.

I seem to remember at one time there was a set of 800 frequencies for them. I think it was years ago. Way before I had a scanner that would even go that high.

Does anyone recall that?

Yes, they used 856.3125 & 856.3875 conventional (repeater) channels. I can recall some (not a lot) of transmissions on there. Those channels were discontinued about 5+ years ago.

This is what I can confirm for National Grid in the CNY region:

153.2000 Cortland County
153.5750 Cortland County 162.2 PL
159.3750 Hamilton County
159.5100 Hamilton County
153.5750 Herkimer County 162.2 PL Old Forge Line
153.5150 Jefferson County 162.2 PL Clayton
153.5450 Jefferson County 151.4 PL Watertown
153.5750 Jefferson County 162.2 PL Watertown
153.7250 Jefferson County 162.2 PL West Carthage
451.1000 Jefferson County 151.4 PL "Eastern Ops"
153.7250 Lewis County 162.2 Croghan Line
153.2000 Oneida County
153.3800 Oneida County 151.4 PL Utica Line
153.4550 Oneida County 162.2 PL
153.5150 Oneida County 151.4 PL
153.6050 Oneida County 162.2 PL
153.6800 Oneida County 162.2 PL "Oneida County Storm"
153.6650 Onondaga County 151.4 PL Syracuse Service
153.4550 Onondaga County 162.2 PL Syracuse Dispatch
153.4700 Onondaga County 162.2 PL Meters
153.4250 Onondaga County 162.2 PL Syracuse Line
153.6050 Oswego County 162.2 PL Volney Line
153.6950 Oswego County 162.2 PL Pulaski Line
153.3500 Oswego County

451.0625 162.2 PL crossband w/ 153.4250
451.0875 CSQ crossband w/ 153.6650

451.1500 151.4
451.1250 151.4
451.2000 151.4
451.3750 123.0
451.5750 151.4

854.8375 noted as Herkimer County, but I am not close enough to hear anything on this.

Here in the Capital District they are all conventional, but some channels are analog and some are digital. They also use both VHF and UHF.

There used to be a trunked system on 800 MHz (AA1C), but it was dismantled a few years ago.

Ahh, I thought so.

Very good gentlemen. I guess I'll plug them in and see what happens.

Thank you
