At the risk of asking a dumb question could somebody please help me to understand, why it is that when listening to RFS PMR channels (Wollondilly brigades in this example) they show up as coming from the Simpson Hill repeater (420.250) and not Mt Gibraltar on (466.9000 or 462.4875) or somewhere closer? Is this correct or am i missing something?

Hi, when you say "show up as coming from" please explain? Where does it say this? How are you listening? Thanks

Thanks for the reply, I have a Uniden SDS100, i programmed it using the radio reference database specifically in this case (New South Wales - NSW Rural Fire Services Scanner Frequencies and Radio Frequency Reference) and for the frequency 420.250 it matches a few areas but also E070 RFS PMR HORNSBY - Simpson Hill. When i programmed the scanner i only entered "Simpson hill" so i understand that's why the words simpson hill appear on the screen however I cant understand why Wollondilly brigades are coming through on this channel/repeater?
Thanks again.
