Yup. There were two PD's coming over it. One with southern accents and another one with "New Englandy" accents. The one with southern accents used MDC-1200 and the other one used DTMF. I think the southern one was coming from Maryland, but I'm not sure.
1STR465: By "offtone", do you mean you were getting another PL? I was getting 186.2 Hz here. I even heard the FDNY Citywide dispatcher make several "open mic." announcements because of it.
There is a dept down in North Carolina that has the same repeater pair. I forget which, but when I was down there, I was getting them on the citywide freq. As you go up I85? towards Richmond, they would battle each other. FDNY has been heard (espeically Manhattan before 2001) down south. In fact, you can/were able to hear them I95 for quite some distance.
