I will be traveling up the Eastern Shore in about a month.

Is the STARS system active on the E Shore yet?
If it is, is it simulcast as the Richmond area system was when I passed through in October?

Thank you
Dic

Welcome back to Virginia. Eastern Shore is in Div 5 and active on STARS.

You will hear Richmond & Chesapeake traffic on STARS. Conventional ch's 9 & 10 will match with STARS Chesapeake 1 & 2.

Frank,

Thank you.
I am happy to be coming back to Virginia.

So, Division 5 is on STARS and being simulcast on VHF?

I remember when I was in Richmond in October that I was having massive problems programming the STARS system into my BC 250D.
I would have lost my mind if it wasn't for the simulcast.

I don't want to go through that headache again.

Thanks
Dic

In a valley that only a few know where it is
The BC250D isn't capable of doing 9600 systems is it?

STARS is true P-25 9600baud control channel so I don't think you can scan it (in trunked mode) with your 250D.

Best thing to do is just scan VSP conventionally.

Chris is correct, 250 won't track STARS.

Hey Chris, went past your Ohio exit yesterday, in fact, spent last night in Ashland KY. St Louis tonight.

Just thinking...

I have been in Onancock and Onley and know they both have PDs.
I presume that they are on the county system, does anyone know their IDs?

I know the Accomack SO does things by numbers, do we know how the numbers work?

Thanks
Dic
