10-4 good buddy. So, heres the line up
453.400--162.2--Oxford county?
453.400--141.3--York county?
47.120 PL 100.0
47.100 PL 100.0
Was either of those repeaters?
We got D-O-T truck's hanging, watching the tree cutting by another company. I'll try lo-vhf signal stalking

Were they actual state employees doing the flagging? Around here they use a small company that uses the same freq. But different pl.

YES my reports where men and women wearing MAINE DOT Safety vests. Those other companies use MURS or whatever they are for radios

I bet the DOT's UHF portables have that 453.400 freq programmed as a few different channels, with each channel having a different tone.
I highly doubt they have any lowband HTs.

Route 95 Maintenence flagger's

Today while in Kittery,
I came across the 95 maintenence crew with flagger's.
They were on route 101, working on the bridge that goes over 95..
( the bridge behind the Trading Post )
They were putting tar patches on it..
So, I hit my signal stalker and caught them..
Before I say what they were using,
I won't argue the point.
I was there, and heard them on----
151.625-PL--192.8

Now, why the 95 crew was on that assignment is beyond me.
The trucks all said --95 maintenence--, all with your standard 16 inch vhf antenna's..
I guess only the D-O-T flaggers use 453.400

I just got back from the same location.
This time, I got NAILED with freqs..
All I can say is-1 of these freqs was talking about the project..
OH, the D-O-T was there this time too..
As well as 95 crew...
So, here is what I caught.
151.880--dc-143,
467.900--dc--624,
152.0075, --229.1,
151.1075---Kittery dpw
, and Hisson cement, 464.500--dc--654. ( car to car ) VERIFIED..
All of these hit me when I was between flaggers. ( fast fingers +good equipment )
So, I cannot say who is who.
But-1 of them was was talking about the BRIDGE JOB..
Thanks for the input Mr, charger...
I --DO-- value your opinion, thanks...
