Hello:

I was wondering if someone could tell me what do I need to monitor the Portland area and adjoining counties. Has everyone switched to 800 trunked or is there still some deps that use VHF and UHF
I was looking to listen to as I travel.
Clackamas
Washington
Portland City / Multnomah County
Columbia / Clark
Yamhill

If someone could help me I would appreciate it

Chris

The 4 contiguous counties in the Portland area all use Motorola analog systems and all the police and fire departments have interoperability on each other's systems.

Although the RR database lists many sites, you need only the simulcast sites for each system. The control channels are listed below.
