I've been monitoring/analyzing the Greene County EDACS system, particularly the "Primary (Rebanded)" site for the last couple of weeks. Have been using several different scanners and been doing quite a bit of analysis with HomePatrol-1E. Here's what I can say about the "Primary" site to date (though there are still some unknowns):
The majority of the time the Primary site only uses LCNs 1-5, during periods of high activity, LCNs above 5 are assigned. I've seen the Control Channel on LCN 1 and LCN 3 (not sure how often they rotate, and which other LCNs may be used). I have high confidence that the frequencies for LCNs 1-5 in the RRDB (as of the 5-7-2012 change) are correct.
During the periods of high activity the Control Channel activity logs have shown assignments to LCNs 6, 8, & 9 (plus a one-time assignment of LCN 12?). Have not observed any assignments to LCN 7 or 10. (Note: have only monitored for short periods of time, 2-3 hrs, several different times - not practical to monitor continuously). I'm pretty sure the frequencies for LCNs 6, 8, & 9 are correct; don't really know about LCNs 7 & 10.
My research has revealed 4 different FCC Call Signs which I believe are related to the overall Greene County EDACS system: WPYE457, WNZB282, WNPO350, and WPUG600
It's not readily apparent from the license data which frequencies are allocated to which logical EDACS "Site" (i.e., Control Channel) - there are multiple physical locations with fixed antennas simulcasting on the same frequencies. The system is further complicated by mixed government/business use.
Should anyone have additional data/information about the system they can share with me it might help my analysis. Any inputs on this thread or through private message would be appreciated.
I'll post my analysis results to this thread as I have time, and share my findings with the RR administrators.

Isn't there ANYBODY in Greene Co. who monitors this system and has the CORRECT information?
