I had a question from a friend about this agency.
Analog freqs and digital talkgroups are listed but he does not (apparently) hear anything on either.
Are they using digital or analog?
This is an older man who understands nothing about radio.
Will it work if he gets a properly updated HP-1?
A gre something.
Identical to rs-197.
I just need to know if anybody is getting the pd.
I thought they may be on mototrbo or something we can't get.
I have not been in Morgantown in 10 years or I would check myself.
As with other counties in WV they cannot do fire ems pager tones over UHF P25 trunking, hence they usually keep one VHF high freq for this. Ever since the wind storm some counties have complained about the IRP. A few are still paying license fees on old freqs as a backup to the IRP. But I would not count on it.
Many counties are not even installing VHF low or high band radio equipment in their vehicles due to switching over to the IRP and lack of narrowbanding capability and parts availability for repair. If your friend has a GRE PSR600 then he should be able to hear everything in Mon county. He just needs to program the IRP correctly into it.
