147.420 is generally regard in the 2 meter band plan as a Simplex (not repeater) frequency.

Simplex frequencies are usually not documented in "repeater directories", as I no longer live in Indiana it is difficult to say, only the user would know for certain,

123.05 is an Helo freq, and I believe is in the standard programming templates of IN National Guard UH-60's. (Blackhawks)

Close. 123.025 is the rotary-wing advisory frequency, used mostly in the vicinity of cities or areas with significant helicopter traffic. 123.050 is a UNICOM frequency for airports without a control tower; I can't say specifically which one this would belong to, but pilots will begin and end all UNICOM transmissions with "[airport name] traffic," which should make it easy identify.

The low band frequency 47.420 is the national Red Cross frequency. You may have confused this with 147.420.

Yes 47.420 is low band Red Cross. A lot of Red Cross units are no longer using this frequency. A lot of units have gone to using a cell phone or they have a talkgroup assigned to them on a statewide radio system. 147.420 is for ham radio for ARES communications. Ham radio does work with Red Cross for emergencies.

123.050 is assigned to a handful of heliports in the city: 81II, 23IN, IN06 that I can find. It's not uncommon around cities to have a dedicated frequency for helicopter traffic, while 123.025 is mostly used for advisory or A/A.
