When time permits, I have been posting new licenses for VHF-H. Looks
like things have trickled to a slow craw. Only three new ones since September
2015....

Well, they're moving towards a new VHF/UHF system nonetheless. The OpenSky system, at least for PSP, is going away.

Funny there has been no licensing in NW PA, since that is where the testing is supposed to begin this year. I live in Erie, so I'm real interested in the latest developments. We also have a DCNR state park here (Presque Isle) that is on Opensky too.

Understand. Will keep checking for new info. The state moves in mysterious ways
and you never know what will turn up....

Thanks - great info! So do you think the state police and the DCNR state park will both use these freqs? And it will be a trunked P25 Phase 2 system?

The general thinking is this will be part of the new system but it's anyone's
guess. I would assume the state police will utilize this system and others ?

Would think P-25 Phase 2 but will have to wait and see...

The emission designation indicates P25 Phase II.

I'm hearing some voice traffic on 155.97 in Erie County on my BC996BCD. I haven't identified it yet. I assume it can't be from the new system yet?

The contract has not actually been awarded yet because one of the bidders filed a complaint over the process. This was mentioned during the recent legislative budget hearings for PSP. Apparently, the complaint is under legal review currently. The company that filed the complaint and the exact nature of the complaint were not discussed. With that in mind, I am going to go ahead and say nothing new is in the air just yet.

I believe I found 2 more sites that look to be part of this system, both are in Fulton county, first one is on the west side near the Bedford/Fulton border and the second is on the east side near the Franklin/Fulton border.

Thanks. Looks like good ones. Will wait a week or so to see if any others
surface and then update the list and map.
Good catch....

These two are pretty close together and the west site shares 3 of the 4 frequencies as the east site.

Thanks for great input. I must have dozed off the last round and missed a
couple pages.

The list is getting large and the basic text list I'm using is going to
be hard to navigate. Think I will try to stuff everything in a database soon
so I can sort by various categories. I would welcome input regarding
what sort would be the most helpful. By frequency, county etc ?

Minor correction: WQUZ230 Driftwood (Cambria) 151.0100 151.3100, is actually Camron County not Cambria

Hate when some old geezer is working the list and can half see !

Thanks and will correct on the next update.

Planning on entering this list into a database format where I can
sort it by any which way. Got any ideas which would be best for
general use.

By county
location
freq
all the above ??
