I got tons of stuff on 154.755 and 155.79. From Allen, I was picking up Port Aransas PD on 154.86 - about 500 miles like it was next door and Matagorda County (Bay City) at 340 miles. I even heard several counties along the Mexican border. Crystal clear - what a great night!

No kidding - South West Texas was Killing Local repeaters here in Fannin Co. I think the only tropo thats was this good was Last year during the Summer storms and Looking at the tropo map tonight SW and S. Texas were in Extreme conditions Specifically for VHF. I wish I could figure out who that one UHF station was I heard. It sounded like some Airport Police agency.

Yeah Firetxmi, sure had it going on tonight, I ended up going back to 800MHz. as it got to the point that VHF was nothing but noise.

I want to say: 154.815- 151.4 (PD) is out of Hopkins Co. but I am not sure. 155.6400 - 146.2 is Kaufman Co., 155.7300 - 100.0 I believe is McLennan Co. 159.0975 - Digital is DPS Narcotics/CLE., 155.5950 - 100.0 is Freestone Co. Ch-2.

159.21- Digital
Could have been any number of DPS repeaters. The closest ones to you are Glen Rose and Denton

159.0975- Digital
Probably DPS repeater in Decatur.

159.21- 141.3 Mineral Wells DPS
"Aledo Repeater" which is just NE of Willow Park in Parker Co.

155.58- 174 DC (PD)"Passing the 414 (pronounced four-one-four)" *NOTE: if someone can identify this I would be extremely happy, I think it might be out of state*
Willow Park PD in Parker County. 414 is a mile marker on I-20.

Awesome! Thanks very much!!

I was excited about "The 414" because it looked like it was coming out of far west Louisiana. Oh well. I still got some pretty crazy distances.

I see everyone heard Corsicana last night, man, they were loud up here. mbstone99, 154.7850 is Grayson Co. Primary, but used by Trenton (Fannin Co.) as a back-up when Fannin Co. gets un-professional and ignores City Police running Traffic. Trenton will go to Grayson to run traffic. just FYI.

The 154.7400 DCS 565 is something out of Van Alstyne. I used to believe it was a in-put to Grayson SO. but am begining to believe its used locally by Van Alstyne PD.

154.74 -- I agree with that. Much of the time it is linked to Grayson through Van Alstyne, but they seem to be operating it more on their own lately.

154.7400

Russell - Thats is actually licensed to Van Alstyne, City of; I wonder if before Van Alstyne got their own 911 service if that was the relay to Grayson SO? Origionally when I discovered it it was patched to Grayson SO. but anymore it seems its used locally by Van Alstyne, Anna, Tom Bean & Howe as a Tactical Channel. with Primary Van Alstyne operations on 154.2500 PL: 192.8 Just kinda wondering if that should be re-identified as a Van Alstyne Channel and have it editted in the Database?

I wonder why I did not receive anything from down near the border when it appears quite a few people did.

What are y'all using (Antenna and scanner wise)?

Pro-433, Pro-2052, Pro-97 (the 433 & 97 on a Duplexer to a Shack Discone antenna 40 feet above the Earth with little Obstruction.)

The 433 was actually pulling stuff in better, but it dosn't display a CTCSS or DCS tone. Might be time to buy WinTone so I can see the CTCSS activity.
