Correct. PennSTAR #1 and #6 are stationed at Wings Field. PS6, IIRC, is primarily an inter-facility ship used in partnership with Temple University Hospital (this was formerly contracted out to University Medevac; I think it was Medevac 8 based in NE Philly or somewhere like that).Q-ball said:since i have only recently started monitoring medevac freqs....is it just, or is there jst not much action on them at all, sometimes it seems like hours can go by with nothing, but i guess if they are in flight, its a pretty serious situation, or trauma...i believe, pennstar has two birds stationed at wings field correct? according to their webpage.
Sky Flight Care (aka SkyCare) only has one bird that's based at Brandywine Hospital in Caln, Chester County. I'm not sure where in MontCo you are, but I don't think SkyCare goes too far east into MontCo (though they were 3rd due after a recent MVA in Worcester Twp, MontCo).Q-ball said:Thanks, i hardly ever hear any radio traffic from brandywine skyflight...(red choppers right?)....but i heard something the other night about pennstar from nazareth, odds are that bird wasnt answering a call in the philly area or suburbs was it, wouldnt ps6 or ps1 handle that?..oh well....who knows.

Most of their MontCo flights are in the Pottstown area, which is odd, since Medevac 3 is based over at Limerick Airport yet SkyCare usually ends up as first-due in Pottstown.
Their transmitters are at BWH and I think they have one licensed in Philadelphia somewhere, but don't quote me on it. The UHF repeater carrys both base and ship traffic.
That happens from time to time. It is actually a scanner issue, not a county radio issue. The calls are going out over the correct TGs on the county end, the scanner just gets confused, or gets goofy info from the signals it receives and can't interpret them properly.Q-ball said:Hey for the heck of it, did anyone notice last night, on the southeast portion of montgomery county,pa dispatch...it seemed likeafter 10pm, things were disorganized....
