I'm not aware of any exercise here in central Ill. but at noon today a male was doing a radio check on the ITTF Utac ch.1/ 453.4625mhz. 156.7 pl. on a repeater.
I'm guessing this was from Springfield,Ill. judging by the signal which was about s5.

McLean County EMA had their conference yesterday. Might've been them. ITECS trailer was there.

Maybe,but this was not a local signal and Mclean EMA would not have had any business being on it due to it being a federal interop. channel. Radio checks with no unit id or call sign was all I heard.

EMA is one of the intended users of the ITAC, UTAC and VTac channels, they are not "Federal Interop" channels. They are intended for use by any Public Safety discipline, police, fire, EMA etc.

I don't know the details about the instant use mentioned, but it is entirely possible that the ITECS trailer was the source of the repeater.
