Technically, yes. Maybe an antenna registration already exists for that site/tower in the FCC records. Maybe they are using somebody else's tower structure. Or maybe they are just slow submitting.doesn't the state oif ohio have to fill out a fcc application for the tower? and don't that have to be approved before they can construct the tower?
Early on I had seen MARCS fire up sites without a specific license assigned for those sites. But to my knowledge they have not done that for some time. I'd bet you won't see the site active with MARCS traffic until a license has been applied for and granted.The tower is completely built. they built it in 2 days but not completed the tower itself is built but no antennas on it yet. is there any other way to find the frequencies for the tower?
IF the site is active, use Search mode on your scanner to find the new control channel. That's the only way to tell what the frequencies are in the absence of an FCC license or somebody else submitting data. It likely just isn't online yet. But the only way to know for sure is to do a scan of 800 mhz and search for the control channel of a new site that isn't listed anywhere else.The Mount Orab( Brown County) ohio Ohio MARCS tower is completly built with everything looks to be done. but still no known frequencies for this tower. Is there any other way to find the frequencies for this tower? Can the tower be built and done without a FCC license? And can a tower be built nad not be operational yet? Any input would be very helpful. Thank You
As long as it takes to install the shelter and generator, receive the equipment, install it, connect the T1 lines, test everything, etc etc. Could be months, and in uncertain winter weather it could be delayed. When it's up and running, it's up and running. If you live in the area, just keep searching; sooner or later it will be there, so it's best not to get too worked up about it.Do you Know how much time it takes to get the tower activated after it is built?
