ASU has changed their frequencies. From my location, I can only pick up their Tempe site. New, verified information is as follows:

Arizona State University
WACN BEE00
Site 103 - ASU Tempe Campus

855.73750 control
856.43750 alternate control
857.48750 alternate control
857.73750 voice
858.48750 voice
858.73750 voice
859.43750 voice
859.73750 voice
860.73750 voice

Most of the above frequencies, but not all, match what I see in FCC licenses for them.

Since I can't hear the other sites, I would like for others to look for them and report findings. The following information is from FCC License WQTP255 to give you idea of what frequencies to check for.

Glendale Site: 857.4375 and 858.4375

Downtown Site: 856-860 with endings of .7125.

Thanks.

As soon as you work this out please update with a database submission.
Thanks,

I just caught voice channel useage on 857.4375 and 858.4375. 857.8125 is the control channel that I'm receiving.
I'm too far from the downtown or Tempe campuses, let alone the East Valley campus on the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway airport grounds to pick anything up from them directly.
FYI, Glendale's old trunked radio system used 856-860.4375 and 856-860.7125 before they switched to the RWC. It looks like ASU has received a bunch of these.

With their frequency change, I am wondering if they also changed this to a 4 tower simulcast. Looking at it with P96com, I am only seeing site 103 active with no neighbor sites. Changing to simulcast would also justify why they changed frequencies

If we can confirm that monitoring in the West valley, Downtown, and East valley are all seeing site 103 with a good signal, then we can probably confirm this is now one simulcast site.

I don't have a computer to run software, but if it helps any, my PSR-500 shows:
Current CC: 857.8125
Voice channels: 857.4375 & 858.4375 (Seem to alternate)
N280
W:BEE00
SYS:286
R:001
S:004
I'm at 91st & Peoria Aves, so I'm assuming this is ASU West. (And ASU West is in Phoenix on the Glendale border, btw. They're not in Glendale.)

They are physically in Phoenix, but their official address says Glendale. I wonder if the property is one of those "islands" (used to be a lot of County "islands")?

As of 1:30 am, active control channels for system 286 are:
855.7375 NAC 283 R001 S003 BEE00 (moderate signal strength; Downtown?)
856.7125 NAC 281 R001 S001 BEE00 (weak signal strength, have to play with scanner location to receive; Tempe?)
857.8125 NAC 280 R001 S004 BEE00 (strong signal strength; West?)
I'm hearing all these from my home on a GRE PSR-500 with the Radio Shack 800 MHz duck antenna.
(Edit: When I did a search for one of the control channels, it did not come up in the database results. Just fyi.)
