Recently moved up to Aroostook County*, and just getting started on building my local frequency database. Figured I would start passing along what I am finding that might not have been published in this forum so far.

KCD699 - EASTERN MAINE ELECTRIC COOP
Repeater output…47.820 / Repeater input…48.540 (haven’t caught the tone yet)
451.20000 & 456.20000…repeater control links?
Repeater is down in Washington County, but can hear it here very good.

WPKH701 - DEAD RIVER COMPANY (propane company)
43.36000 (haven’t caught the tone yet)
47.64000 (haven’t caught the tone yet)
Heard some trucks chatting simplex nearby.

AROOSTOOK REGIONAL TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM (bus service in Presque Isle)
WNHE426…..463.850/468.850… repeater on Houlton Road in Presque Isle
WNHR775…..463.725/468.725… repeater on Charette Hill in Fort Kent
WPBX559…..463.475/468.475… repeater on Perham Hill in Perham
All are narrowband FM


*[Came up to Houlton for my oldest Niece’s wedding in 2004, and fell in love with the area. Retired, I purchased a large parcel of land in August, and only now finally getting my tower and antennas up before winter.]

Welcome to the area. I'm up in Caswell, near Van Buren and the border.

Go look for the Fort Fairfield Journal online - get in touch with the publisher - see if he has any copies of his scanner guide for the area left for sale.

It's a very different world up here. Of course, down in Tropical Houlton it may not be quite so much so...
