Hello everyone,

I'm looking for the frequency used by Medical Helicopters in the Northwestern Pennsylvania region.

Emergycare's LifeSTAR use to be dispatched on Med-10 (462.97500) and tac talk on 155.220.

Also on the freqs above we use to hear stat medavac and others. for 2 months now there has been no communications at all. I do hear chatter from helo to airport on 121.000 to Erie int airport.

Emergycare use to Dispatch on med 10 like this. Emergycare Dispatcher:

"Lifestar be on standby for a possible scene response of a motor-vehicle accident with the Albion fire department."

now we don't hear anything.

Anyone know the new frequencies are? Thanks!! :confused:

Some chopper services are not voice dispatching anymore. Down in pittsburgh one just drops the tones to set off minitors/ radios basically to alert crews to check their alpha pagers or call in by phone.

STAT MedEVAC Has taken over the air medical services of Lifestar; MedEvac 17 is operating in Erie and MedEvac 7 in Meadville.(Stat's web site was the source of information). Their primary frequency is 155.265 but to echo Frank, don't hear much in the area of dispatch just the alert tones.

I sometimes hear the crews talking to the dispatcher about their status, enroute info, etc. But as the others have stated, alot less radio traffic anymore. Really rare is a report to the hospital on the enroute patient.

I still hear pt status to the hospital. In pittsburgh usually its on 155.340 or med-2

The reason for the less info on dispatch is so the competitors can not jump calls. etc...
