You said 33.90 for West Manchester Township. There was a fire this morning over in York County, West Manchester Township...maybe thats what you heard? Which is odd because I live in the county over and didnt hear it haha.

It's a possibility, considering I was hearing PA ham repeater on 29.640, The signal on 33.90 was pretty weak though, all I managed to copy was "Manchester Township" and something about a shopping mall.

If you google West Manchester Township there is only one which is in York County in PA. I would say most likely that would be it.
