I just started hearing this frequency in the last few weeks. It is a police frequency and has decent activity on it. Anyone know who it belongs to? Im picking it up very clear in Schuylkill Haven.

154.87500 156.03000 WNGB201 RM 167.9 PL 4 Police East - Hackettstown, Independence & Mansfield

What PL are you getting? I believe Lancaster uses this frequency as well,

What unit numbers do they identify with? That might give a clue. Lancaster City units start out with "42" as their agency designator. For instance Forty Two Nine is a supervisor...... CTCSS Tone is 71.9

I have no idea what the PL code is as I am using a basic non trunking BC92XLT, but the unit numbers are 101,112,201,207 county. Lots of activity on this channel.

Those are not Schuylkill PD units, so we can rule that out...

You on a hill in Haven?

Yes i'm up high on the side of a mountain. But then again there are large hills all around. I can pick up Exeter PD, Berks county on 155.0700 crystal clear and they are 40 miles away. But back to the frequency in question 154.8750 I just started picking it up several weeks ago. It's possibly about 60+ miles away and maybe im picking it up through a repeater on a nearby mountain.

The way it sounds it is very possible that it is Lancaster City Police. Their special units such as the task force, detectives, parking enforcement, etc use three digit numbers....
