Does anyone have the main frequency for the Goosetown passport system towers, specifically the one in Warwick, NY?

I know it can not really be "scanned", you need input the frequency as conventional and listen to everything, but I don't mind that.

sc8, I know that Mobile Life Support Services (200 series units), TransCare (700 series units), Care 1 (800 series units), and NYC Department of Environmental Protection Police (W units) make use of the system. Do you know which ambulances are in the 100 series? Seems to be Westchester based.

I don't know for sure. My two guesses would be either Westchester EMS or Empress EMS as those are the two big commercial services down there

Thanks, e911.

I'm still not 100% certain on who the 100 series units are, neither WEMS or Empress seem to use that numbering system, unless their radio numbers are different

478.375 is also an active LTR frequency at the Warwick site.

For what it's worth, the following frequencies at the Warwick site are now MOTOTRBO:

472.625
472.9125
477.7625

Seems like alot of the LTR sites are going the Motortrbo route lately...Nycomco especially. I know Warwick used to be Passport only with Goosetown awhile back...they must have recently added the others. I guess the interconnect between the sites and 2 channels per repeater is easier.

Goosetown is in the process of building out a TRBO Connect Plus network at all their LTR sites. TRBO is the wave of the future, the TDMA is a big advantage over LTR. Once Connect Plus was available, the decision to migrate away from LTR was basically a no-brainer.

Rockland County Highway will be switching over from LTR to TRBO soon (Cheesecote Mtn site in Pomona). Other Goosetown users will follow that trend as they modify or renew their contracts. Their LTR/Passport system will be around for a while, they still have a fair amount of long term contract customers using it.
