I've been monitoring VHF and UHF frequencies for quite some time and I've like to submit several updates to the database. I'm a bit of a n00b, so I have no idea how to go about it, but I'd like to start a thread devoted to updating the Berrien County database page. The following frequencies/repeaters are what I've heard and, when possible, I've described what kind of chatter I've heard on each frequency/repeater. Format is [Output]/[Input] [Output Tone].

Government:

460.275/465.275 CTCSS 118.8 Hz - Berrien County Sheriff's Dept. - Infrequent activity, usually car-to-car or car-to-base law chatter. No dispatch or tactical transmissions.

453.900/458.900 DCS 205 - Listed as Berrien County EOC - Infrequent activity, usually non-EOC-related chatter. Not sure if the listed purpose is the actual use.

155.175 Simplex CTCSS 136.5 Hz - EMS non-dispatch chatter.

460.200/465.200 CTCSS 82.5 Hz - Benton Township Police - Infrequent activity, usually car-to-car law chatter. Rare tactical transmissions.

151.205 Simplex CTCSS 136.5 Hz - County Fireground 2

151.295/153.800 CTCSS 100.0 Hz - County-Wide Dispatch - All departments are dispatched on this frequency, not just South County anymore.

156.105/153.9275 CTCSS 123.0 Hz - Berrien County Fire Response Frequency - After a department is dispatched, this repeater is used to respond to dispatch. After the department is on-scene, the Fireground frequency is usually announced on this frequency.

151.370 Simplex CTCSS 103.5 - Berrien County Parks Dept? - Silver Beach County Park seems to be using VHF handheld functioning on this frequency and tone for operations, and perhaps security as well.

155.070 Simplex or Repeater DCS 053 - Saint Joseph Charter Township Police - Infrequent activity, usually car-tocar law chatter. No tactical transmissions.

153.530 Simplex CSQ - City of Benton Harbor - Public Works

Businesses/etc.:

152.960/160.065 DCS 145 - Hasse's Towing Service

152.285/157.545 CTCSS 141.3 Hz - Lakeland Regional Health System

155.340 Simplex CTCSS 97.4 Hz - Lakeland Regional Health System - Ambulance Interop Frequency

451.3125 Simplex DCS 226 - The Whitcomb

451.450/456.450 CTCSS 210.7 Hz - Harbor Shores Golf Club - Grounds Maintenance

Good info, kenj1986. I wish I would've had those golf frequencies a couple of weeks ago!

On another note, something I'm trying to uncover is an MPSCS Talk Group 3805. I overheard what might've been fire units blocking the intersection of Pokagon Rd. and Pucker St. after all the rain today (Monday). There may have been flooding or maybe an electric line down. I couldn't find the TG number anywhere.

Thought I'd submitted this a while ago. I didn't see it in DB, so I submitted the following:
3805, alpha tag 11F368, Description Pipestone-Berrien Townships - Eau Claire Fire: Proprietary, Group Berrien County (11) Fire
