Hello,

I'm from out of town camping at Orchard Beach State Park just northwest of Manistee. I have entered the following tower freqs from the RR database into my 396T w/ the Arc396Pro RR internet import utility & I have het to hear any traffic on them. I've been monitoring these systems for the past 2 hours without a peep.

Onekema
Pleasanton
Mesick West

Am I missing something or are there other towers that are not labeled "Manistee" that I should be programming?

Any help would be awesome!

thanks

The Onekema Tower 868.3875 looks like its coverage is in the area you are .the other 2 look to be East of your area .Also I dont know for sure the MSP for that area may or may not be dispatched on the Manistee County radio freqs .But I been in the the Upper Lower area last week and the MPSCS is quiet fro long period's of time

The thing that's really strange is that there's a msp hq just. North of manistee on route 31witha huge 300 ft. Self supporting tower behind it.

Most MPSCS towers are not located at the MSP Post. so It may not be a MPSCS tower some of the old Post's may still have the old towers up from the 42.000 MHz days .Some of the Scale's do what they use them for I am not sure.It only be a guess it wouls be used for the Post's MPSCS Base Radio .I could be wrong

Well the strange thing is that I should at least see the signal strength indicator when it scans past a control channel. I'm not even getting that...

They have several alpha tags setup for post 51 area both on PD and Fire. Now I do not know if they are on MPSCS or not, that is one thing that would be nice is some maybe wiki update or something in the database section to say when they converted to MPSCS or are they going to and maybe a date as to when. On the old uhf/vhf freqs for PD and fire do you hear anything.

The Manistee state police post is Post 77 and is on the MPSCS. Manistee County Sheriff and city PD are on the MPSCS as well, and it's likely that the Post 77 cars are dispatched by the county on the Sheriff talkgroup.

The Onekema site is probably the best one, although adding Pleasanton, Mesick West, and maybe Fountain might help you out a bit.
