That is a state wide MARCS frequency. These frequencies are used in more than one location otherwise there would not be enough frequencies available.

853.9875 is used on the mobile site which gets some regular use in the Columbus area.

It is also used in Brown, Perry, and Portage counties as well. If you look on the MARCS page all the frequency assignments are listed.
