Default 2-008 Boone Co Simulcast

Something about site 2-008 "Boone Co Simulcast" has been bugging me for a long time. Is it really an LSM simulcast setup?
  1. Old documents would suggest 2-008 to be a single site (Madison on Workmans Knob).
  2. FCC license (Boone Co Ambulance Authority / Boone Co ERT) lists three sites -- all three which have the same site frequencies

    Foster (Drawdy Mtn)
    Madison (Workmans Knob)
    Kopperston (at the same location as 2-029 Kopperston)

  3. Kopperston has it's own site / license that is not part of any simulcast, 2-029.

That leads one to ask a few questions.... Would there actually be two sites (Foster and Madison) 2 miles apart but with the same exact frequencies? Would a third site of a Boone Co Simulcast actually exist in tandem as a separate SIRN site in Kopperston? Or was the initial thought simply a pipe dream and SIRN decided that seperate SIRN sites would serve Boone Co?

I'm thinking there is actually just one site in Boone Co (Workmans Knob).

Anybody with more knowledge care to chime in? I'd be interested in hearing some opinions. I figure nobody with absolute knowledge will reply -- if somebody knew differently, they would have already posted about it years ago.

Food for thought.

Mike

ADDENDUM: I received word that site 2-008 is definitely not a simulcast site. It's a single site located on Workman's knob, Madison would be it's name. At this point I'm unclear as to whether we will change this site name from "Boone Co Simulcast" to "Madison". Time will tell

If I do I'll be sure to post.

I take that back. The FCC Antenna Registration does lists the site as having been constructed as of 7-24-2013.

ASR Registration 1286712

Default Northern Panhandle SIRN

Does anyone know what the plans are for SIRN in the Northern Panhandle. Currently there is a tower and a license for Weirton, but it hasn't ever come online. There is a site in southern Brooke Co that I've always thought to be a part of the current Ohio Co Simulcast (3-001).

I also do know that this year there were license updates and additions that suggest multiple additional sites perhaps being added to the Ohio Co Simulcast -- from Moundsville, St Joseph and Cameron in Marshall Co and Weirton in southern Hancock/Northern Brooke. Those licenses all list the same freqs as are in use on the current Ohio Co SImulcast.

That leads me to believe that at least some thought is being given to extending the size of the Ohio Co Simulcast to basically cover much more of the Northern Panhandle, i.e. Hancock / Brooke / Ohio / Marshall.

Yes, I know Marshall already has active separate sites, but various license updates would suggest that possibly that may be changed so that those sites were part of one larger simulcast, essentially turning Ohio Co Simulcast into NPWV Simulcast or something like that.

Just wondering if anyone has a clue ?

Mike

Default Unconfirmed SIRN Sites -- Periodic request for help

You all might want to take a look at the following map:

https://mapsengine.google.com/map/ed...v4vp7_UM&hl=en

Red = Zone 1 active sites
Blue = Zone 2 active sites
Yellow = Zone 3 active sites
Black Circles = suggested up and coming SIRN sites
Black Stars = questionable licensed sites that may or may not become part of 3-001

As I always suggest, scanning for the existence of a new site should include scanning from 450 - 455 mhz and 460-465 mhz. Occasionally SIRN brings sites online (especially in the case of special need / emergency) using 454 mhz spectrum.

Here is a link to the currently licensed (but not confirmed active) sites. Please ignore 9107.

WVIRP Site Info (WV) - The RadioReference Wiki

If you live in/near an area where you see black circles on the map, you might want to consider checking to see if said site is online.

Mike

Sorry about that map . I forgot to share it publicly. Everyone can see it now, should they be inclined to check it out.

Default Band Plan Question

I haven't been back home to Wheeling or West Virginia in a while so I was looking at the RR page and noticed a couple of changes since the last time I was looking at it. Like 2 newer frequencies for Ohio County, and I also see a Band Plan Chart that I don't remember seeing on the page. When I put in the system 2 years ago or so I downloaded it directly into my 396XT and 996XT using FreeScan. I checked out the Band Plan in the scanners and it looks nothing like the simple Band Plan that is being displayed on the main page for the State site. What I have in the scanner is something that looks like this......

0: 851.00625 / 6.25
1: 762.00625 / 6.25
2: 453.02500 / 12.5
3: 450.00000 / 6.25 there is no Offset listed in either scanner for this Band Plan.

Question is... will I still pick up transmissions with this Band Plan or should I delete it out and add the one that is showing on the RR page that looks like this....

1: 452.00000 /12.5 / 380
2: 460.00000/ 12.5 / 570

For any scanner capable of monitoring P25, don't worry about custom bandplans for SIRN. The scanner will figure it all out. On some scanners you have to do nothing. On others you might have to set the system type to P25 Auto. But overall, any recent vintage Uniden or GRE product will automatically obtain the correct bandplan. The only exceptions to that rule, if they are exceptions at all, would be the RS PRO-96 / 2096.

Thanks. It's been a long time since I used a 96/2096, and I wasn't sure if that was the case or not. Was just going off some vague memory

Default Mingo County Airport

I can confirm that the new Tower at the Mingo County Airport is active. I'm hearing W.V. State police (Logan County) Dispatcher and receiving full strength. I can see the new tower from where I live. 453.5625 seems to be the primary channel in the group of frequencies. Will post more as I hear it.

Eddie,

Can you confirm for me that it is identifying itself as RFSS/Zone 2, Site 20 ( 2-020 )?

Thanks,

Mike

Thank you. I appreciate it . I would expect it to be 2-020, but since the time I had obtained the list of IRP sites and their associated RFSS-ID information, things have changed and more sites are planned or have been built. So in the end it may be something other than 2-020.

I added it to the RR DB as 2-020 though.

Mike

Mike, my HomePatrol is only displaying the talk group ID and no Repeater ID. Any Ideals?

MotoTRBO was just a private repeater for MCSO but was never fully functional and abandoned.
Thanks for the reply. Any idea TG's? Only ones in the DB are for EMS. I knew they had switched to P25, when I was working a show there, PD and EMS showed up for an unresponsive male, and they all had XTS2500's on their sides.
