Default Hudson Valley UHF to low-band Fire Control links...

I thought I'd put together a list of all the UHF to low-band Fire Control links for the Hudson Valley area. Here is what I compiled so far: PLEASE POST CORRECTIONS/ADDITIONS/ETC.

Orange County links to 36 Control (46.160 PL 123.0)
460.6000R PL 123.0 located on Cronomer Hill/hosted by Cronomer Valley FD
(also repeats 46.220 PL 123.0, Orange County F2/Truck-Truck)

458.5875 PL 114.8
I have this listed as the Water tank behind the Circleville Firehouse, but have also heard it is Middletown FD's link. Can someone confirm?

453.8250R PL 167.9 located in Winding Hills Park/hosted by Montgomery FD
(also repeats 46.220 PL 123.0, Orange County F2/Truck-Truck)

453.5500 DPL 315 *NEW* located on the Clinton Drive Water Tank/hosted by Washingtonville FD

460.525 FUTURE LINK will be located on the Eagle's Nest/hosted by Bullville FD

476.4625R DPL 506 FUTURE LINK will be located in the Troutbrook area/hosted by Chester FD

Rockland County links to 44 Control (46.180 PL 131.8)
453.2625 PL 131.8 located on the Congers Firehouse
471.1000 PL 167.9 located on the Nanuet Firehouse
460.6250 DPL 606 located on the New City Firehouse
460.2875 PL 131.8 located on Nyack College/hosted by Nyack FD
460.6000 PL 203.5 located on the Water Tank by Good Sam Hospital/hosted by Suffern FD
458.5750 hosted by Tallman Fire (unable to confirm)
470.5000 PL 131.8 located on Tilcon Mountain/hosted by Theills FD
470.6750 PL 131.8 located on Helen Hayes Hospital/hosted by West Haverstraw FD

Putnam County links to 40 Control (46.440 PL 127.3)
None known. However, I show Putnam Valley FD has a link to 46.380 Pl 123.0 (Fire Paging) on 453.7875 DPL 503. I also have an old frequency for the same link as 453.9375 PL 123.0 but I don't think it's used anymore.

Dutchess County links to 14 Control/Dutchess 911
All comms are no longer on low-band. All call outs are now on Response 2 - 453.925 PL 114.8. However, dispatching (Dispatch 1)on 453.9000 PL 114.8 is still repeated on 46.360 CSQ.

Westcheser County links to 60 Control

Ulster County links to 56 Control (46.460 PL 114.8)
None known at this time.

Westchester UHF links:

Briarcliff Manor at the old Kings College 460.1125 dpl 243

Katonah 460.2375 dpl 063

Lake Mohegan 453.275 dpl 226

Peekskill 453.875 dpl 411

Yorktown 453.5625 306 French Hill?
Yorktown 453.5625 606 IBM?

Pound Ridge ?
Croton on Hudson?

Corrections additions welcome
Also note that these are regular repeaters with a low band link radio. Meaning that these FDs can now use UHF portables to reach 60 control.

e,

This is Circleville's.

Also, Putnam Valley's 453.9375 link is off the air.

-Peekskill's repeater is down right now. Unknown when it will be up again.
-Pound Ridge operates two crossbands, one repeating 46.26 and the other repeating 33.96. Both of these repeaters are generally poor in coverage unless you're in the Pound Ridge area, but they used to be much better (esp. the 33.96 one). Not sure what's up here.
Pound Ridge 33.96 C/B - 453.350 DPL 664
Pound Ridge 46.26 C/B - 453.975 DPL 413

-Yorktown only operates one repeater at French Hill with the DPL of 606 not 306. Freq. is 453.5625 and coverage is awesome for the Northern parts.
-Mohegan's repeater is also great for the Northern half of the county.
-Putnam Valley's 453.7875 DPL 503 is pretty good too, but you need to be in the Mohegan/Somers/Mahopac area to receive anything.
-Putnam Valley also has a EMS crossband on 155.205 with a frequency of 463.1375 and a PL of 123.0. Coverage is generally poor into Westchester County.
-Katonah Rptr 460.2375 DPL 065 - Fair coverage
-Croton Rptr 453.025 DPL 503 - Good Coverage
-Briarcliff Rptr 460.1125 RX DPL 243, TX DPL PRIVATE - Excellent Coverage for North-central WC
-Harrison Rptr 472.250 DPL 243 - Good coverage for southern WC
-Banksville Rptr 453.2625 DPL 261 - Fair coverage
-Montrose Rptr 453.4125 DPL 244 - Fair
-Mohegan Rptr 453.275 DPL 226 - Excellent
-Peekskill Rptr 453.875 DPL 411 - Offline, but otherwise Fair

On a side note: North Salem VAC has recently put up a UHF repeater crossing to 151.535. The frequency is 452.575 with no PL. I haven't really had time to test it, but I have heard some activity from NSVAC and LVAC units as well as 45-Medics. Reportedly Lewisboro VAC also has a crossband up on 463.675 unknown PL. I haven't had a chance to verify this yet.

If anyone wants any more info on frequencies or info on the trunking system which has currently showing increased use among the WC FD's and VAC's, PM me or reply to this thread.

correction to Pound Ridge FD's repeater, it retransmits 46.06MHz, not 46.26MHz. You can hear the three Westchester FD's that operate on 46.06 thru this repeater (Pound Ridge, Greenville(Scarsdale) & Pelham.

I don't know if it is Putnam Valley FD, but I am hearing Putnam County Fire on 453.1875MHz. PVFD is licensed for this freq., as is Hastings on Hudson FD.

Corrections to Orange County...

460.975 will be the new Bullville link to 36 Control. The other frequency posted will be their new operations repeater.

Cronomer now longer rebroadcasts 46.200 (Truck-Truck). Since most surrounding departments are on UHF, they just switch to that departments UHF Ops channel/vice-versa.

Are any of the Orange County UHF links strong enough to be heard in northern Rockland?

No. Unfortunately, the majority of the links are in the North and Western parts of the county. The Cronomer link gets down the Thruway to about Sloatsburg, but then drops out around the bend. On the other side, you lose it on the lower portion of the Palisades. I wish Fort Montgomery would put one up on Perkins tower where NYS Park Police and Town of Highlands PD have their repeater. I can hear those two all over the place.

Program all the 46.26MHz repeaters listed above. I would guess there is a 95% chance you will receive at least one of them. Just because they are not local to you does not mean you will not receive them. It depends on the output power and how high the antenna is that determines the distance the signal will reach.

That project was put on hold several times and is still on hold. They almost lost their frequencies due to not building out the the system within the time specified to the FCC.

Default NSVAC cross band in operation...

We just finalized the new cross band link for NSVAC. It's a UHF repeater on 452.875 pl 110.9 if memory serves thats linked to our simplex 151.535 channel, and the coverage is amazing with a portable. ESS had to come back in to tweak it, as we were not receiving tones from 60, but the issue is resolved. I'd appreciate any reception reports from listeners/users.

Default Q S L

92,

While 452.875 doesn't sound as good as 151.535 (156.7), your new signals are making it into eastern Orange County...heard a few dispatches during my travels...which leads me to...

All I'm getting over 151.535 (156.7) / 452.875 are the dispatches. What does 45M# use as their operations channel once toned out? For example, I heard them sent to an assignment in Mount Kisco. While I heard the BLS driver on the police channel (154.650R, 173.8), asking for a resound for an EMT, unless I missed it (probably because I was then looking for Mt Kisco's BLS dispatch channel), I didn't hear the ALS unit come up on the air.

Also, what are the plans for the old 452.575 (csq) cross band (or was it a mobile extender) link to 151.535 (156.7)?

After initial dispatch on 151.535, the 45 Medics move over to the county trunked system and switch to the appropriate EMS talkgroup for the service they are responding with. The UHF cross band to VHF we put up is actually a retread of our existing UHF downlink setup that came out of 60 Control to our VHF simplex channel. We just reworked it as an in-place UHF repeater with a cross band link to 151.535. Eventually, we'll migrate our portables to UHF to give them some range, and it doesn't require other users to have to add equipment to still talk to us.
