Listen in on 155.055 if you are in Northern or N.E. ILL!

Not sure which department is active on this system at this time, but I am sure this is the first time in years I have heard IREACH come alive!

Did you catch a tone maybe? Ogle county used to use it on occasions to contact those not on the repeater.
Listening now,but I'm too far south.

No, no tone because the transmissions are too brief. Gotta have at least a full minute or so b4 a tone can be caught.

Don't forget Portage, IN PD who uses 155.0550 with a PL of 88.5. When conditions are right, their signal casts a wide blanket :) (And, at least in the past, lights up the ISTHA IREACH patches on StarCom)
