Talking Sevier County & Pigeon Forge

Yup, another question from a d*mn tourist! Just wondering if the Sheriffs Office and Pigeon Forge are simulcasting on their old UHF freqs or not? Or do I have to take the time to put the trunked system into my 996? Thanks in advance.

Mike

Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg still use their UHF freqs, they don't use the trunk.
The Sheriff's dept, and county fire depts. use the trunk so program away....
Sevierville PD use both conventional and the trunk; depends on how they feel that day.

Default GSMNP digital

Bring a digital scanner as the GSM national park has plenty of radio traffic. It is VHF and is digital. Also listen for 42.42, 42.56, 45.70, 42.36 (THP car-to-car) and 158.730 (THP high-band) for THP.

I have a digital scanner, our statewide system here is digital, State Police, Most County SO's and cities are switching so that's a must here, I have the THP freqs entered, I must have missed the GSM though, I'll have to back and check that.

EDIT: I'm not finding that system in the program or database page, What's it listed as/under?

I'd like to have it!

Thanks!

Does Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg Fire Dept still use conventional as well? Or are they on the LTR system. I'm coming down in July and really don't care to listen to the cops but love listening to the FD.

Thanks

Pigeon Forge dispatch and use their conventional freqs, but they also have a Freq they use Nexedge digital. They have the capability to be on the trunk but do not use it unless it is a multiagency tone out.

Gatlinburg dispatch and use their conventional freqs all the time.

All other fire department in the county use the Sevier County trunk.
You also want to program the Land Air trunk systems as the Fire department Interop freqs are on that system.

By Land Air Frequencies You Mean These Right: Common/Shared Scanner Frequencies and Radio Frequency Reference

How often are they used?
And Are All of those 700/800 MHZ frequencies on that page used?

No, I mean these:
Scanner Frequencies: Land Air Communications (Sevierville) Trunking System, Sevierville, Tennessee
Scanner Frequencies: Land Air Communications (Gatlinburg) Trunking System, Gatlinburg, Tennessee
Scanner Frequencies: Land Air Communications (Newport) Trunking System, Newport, Tennessee
They use them from time to time.

I hear traffic on the Statewide EMS frequencies all the time. Those might be worth programming if you want to hear ambulances.

Sounds messed up. So there is a 450 LTR system, a 800 system of sorts. Pigeon Forge has nexedge, and interops are done on a private commercial LTR system? wow
