WQKW310 has 5 locations under its license and all have the same set of frequencies

-NV Power Office (not active) 7155 LINDELL RD LAS VEGAS, NV 36-03-32.0 N, 115-13-05.0 W
-NV Power Substation 8551 W CHARLESTON BLVD LAS VEGAS,NV 36-09-27.9 N, 115-16-39.5 W
-NV Power Substation 8650 W FLAMINGO RD LAS VEGAS, NV 36-06-56.5 N, 115-16-35.9 W
-NV DOT Office 123 E WASHINGTON AVE LAS VEGAS, NV 36-10-58.0 N, 115-08-13.0 W
-8396 W CHEYENNE LAS VEGAS, NV 36-13-10.1 N, 115-16-37.6 W
The last place actually appears at/near the 8550 block of W Cheyenne at Durango with several antenna towers on a self storage facility and some city property behind (north of) it.


I verified each of the sites and found 4 of the 5 active and broadcasting. Not all talkgroups were carried all the time. I could hear things on Rio or Sloan and would flip to this one and not hear anything. No indication that I missed channels. When it's active, it's very active. I was able to watch it cycle through all 10 LCNs a dozen or so times in about 30 minutes.

All 4 active sites appear to be simulcasting. It would fade and then start picking back up as I passed through the mid point between two locations.

I had my R20's gain turned all the way down and the attenuator on. I would lose the control channel not too far from the facility I was at, and as I got real close, the R20 would open up and I would hear the control channel again, so I know each site is broadcasting and I'm not just hearing one site.

SID came up as 28

01 851.42500
02 852.05000
03 852.72500
04 853.16250
05 853.76250
06 851.17500
07 851.76250
08 852.35000
09 852.70000
10 853.47500

These 10 LCNs cover all 10 frequencies found in these sites' license.

I'll submit it to the DB shortly.

It appears the control channel has been changed from 852.725 to 851.425 for these sites.

Yep.

I was trying to figure out the coverage for Primm, but kept getting this site. Sometimes I would lose 28(LV Simul) and pick up 24(Primm) when it became "visible" to me on the freeway (I-15 S from St. Rose to Primm)

Same problem WAS sort of happening with Primm and Angel Peak. In town, my scanner would stop on the Primm site because the control for Angel Peak (852.2000) was also assigned to the Primm site, but get flaky because the LCNs were different.
