Default Anyone have coordinates of KC/SEA Public Safety Sites

Looking to plot a GPS enabled system.

Some are as to find geographically, but sites like EPSCA and Valley Comm don't provide a geographic location.

But these are simulcasts (I think) so does that mean I'm just receiving them from the nearest tower?

Thanks

Since it seems nobody has bothered to store the license info for those "sites", use the license search feature on the known control channels. That should net you the licenses which will include the locations of all towers.
Such as this for the Seattle Simulcast
WPFQ240 (SEATTLE, CITY OF) FCC Callsign Details

That system needs a LOT of location work done across the board....

I will work on it although I'm not from that area so I need some input to correct the database.

Just click on the FCC location link and you'll see where the callsigns map out. Then you can plan accordingly. The FCC license data shows the information you're looking for...

I'll check into that. I could swear that they were entered but I could be wrong.

I have went through and updated the geotags for this system.
Let me know how they work, I can tweak them if needed.
