I went to Primm about 1/2 mile from the power plant where the FCC lists the antenna and found that I was wrong when I affirmed KF7RAY's frequencies.

Primm and Angel Peak share multiple frequencies and I was hearing Angel Peak and not Primm from my house.

Primm
SID 24
01 851.82500
02 851.42500c
03 852.42500
04 851.07500

I listened for about an hour starting around 6:30 and saw Unitrunker go through the 3 voice channels about 10 times each. It's a low traffic site, apparently not carrying the LV Metro stuff like LV1, LV2, etc. The only traffic I heard was LV3.

This leaves 4 frequencies unaccounted for:
852.20000
853.10000
853.36250
853.62500


3 of the 4 active on Primm are shared with Angel Peak but not in use on that site, with 852.4250 being the only one shared and active on both. The 4 inactive at Primm are active on Angel Peak. The two sites are far enough away that it shouldn't matter if they shared frequencies.
The control channel is the same control channel as the LV Simulcast (SID 28).

Also, the Potosi mountain site comes in very clear around Primm.

Apex:
There doesn't appear to be an NSRS site at Apex Peak.
The frequencies listed on the license are in use by the Clark County SNACC system for their Apex site.
These frequencies are separately licensed to the State, North Las Vegas, and Clark County SNACC.
856.73750
857.73750
858.73750
859.73750
860.73750

Three of the 4 frequencies listed for Apex [[122 (7A) Las Vegas, I-15 and US-93]] in the DB are actually for Crystal which is farther away. 3 of them are shared and in use by the Potosi site and were intermittently heard where I was listening (Love's gas station I15/US93)

There are two active sites in the Apex area, but in an hour and half of listening, I barely got enough to fill in the LCN chart and none of it was NV DPS traffic:
1st site Apex - Lenzie Power Plant
WQLY897
36.385667 -114.920444
SID 22
01 851.21250c
02 851.67500
03 852.27500
04 853.38750
---
2nd site:
WQLY898
SILVERHAWK 15555 Apex Power Parkway 36.417194 -114.958333
SID 31
851.28750 open
02 851.87500c
852.33750
852.81250

I didn't get enough to figure out anything but a control channel (which is also the control channel for Sloan (SID 25)). 851.28750 was open, but silent the whole time, basically broadcasting silence.

I'll submit the confirmed updates shortly.

When I have passed through the area I have wondered about the site listed as "Jean". Is that its own site or is it the same as Primm?

It doesn't seem to exist anymore. It was in the DB, but never rebanded and I can't find a current license for it.


For scanning, the Jean area seems to be covered pretty well by the Sloan and Potosi sites.
