Folks, showing a new tower that just went online, 173.7625, Neighbor to Norfolk.

Possibly Craig or Jones Creek. Can somebody confirm this?

Tower is too far away, and getting splatter from a FM radio station here in town.

Obviously one of the US Government frequencies. Seems to be used by the Forrest Service and Bureau of Indian Affairs in other localities. That's a good sign that they're finally releasing the
frequencies that are needed to complete the system along the eastern side of the state.

Strange that it is showing site 141. We already have identified 141 as Arthur. I would expect new sites to have these IDs where we have gaps in what has been identified in the DB:

165
167
170
175
177
179

Keep us posted on what you hear in the NorthEast part of the state.

New tower

I have it almost full quiting, very strong signal here in South Sioux City. I am going to say that it has to be the Jones Creek site. I can see that tower from my house.
It is showing digital for sure, but for now, no data, just a quiet carrier.

I'll keep watching it.

I have to agree it's the Jones Creek site, full quieting signal in Wayne!

Forgive me for my geographical ignorance. Where is the Jones Creek tower located? What county? Does anyone have GPS coordinates for the tower site? I will update the DB with this information.

Also, does anyone know the other voice frequencies of this site or have an output from Pro96Com or Unitrunker?

Thanks,

Joe

Jones Creek coordinates

Geocode for Jones Creek: Latitude: 42.3941623 - Longitude: -96.5689231-I don't know if this will get you the exact location of the tower, but it is worth a start!

Jones Creek is almost 20 miles due west of Sergent Bluff, Ia. and a couple miles northeast of Hubbard, Ne. along Nebraska Hwy 35 in Dakota County.

Looks like we *might* have the Criag tower aswell. Site 175 has not been ID'ed in the database. I have not found a control channel for Cedar Bluffs or Omaha. The Craig site would be the only other site that is using federal frequencies that would be neighbors to the Jones Creek Site and in that part of the state.

Just monitoring Radio Tech talking on Jones Creek tower. They are down on Highway 77 near Walthill and Winnebago. Great signal. Showing up as 3564 dec D NWIN TOC NWIN Technical Ops (TOC).
Seems like everything is working great so far!
