From 1830 (when I turned on the stream) until posting this, I have heard Berks giving security checks on P-1 to a "Unit 8-7-5-3" or "Unit A-7-5-3". Not Eighty-seven - Fifty-three, but Eight-Seven-Five-Three or A-Seven-Five-Three.

Who is this? They were somewhere (not mentioned) awaiting response from PSP.

Any help would be appreciated.

Not in the area any more, but at one time, 875-879 were Pa. Fish Commission. Maybe they still are and have more units within that numbering, like 875-3???

Or Game Commission wardens? With rifle season here, they're pretty active on Lancaster's system - or at least County asks for them quite a bit to call in.

Don't forget, too, that during deer season, PFBC wardens assist PGC wardens. During the start of trout season, PGC wardens will assist PFBC wardens. They both have full authority to enforce each other's laws. This can make it more difficult sometimes to figure out which one you are hearing on a county radio system since they are usually very sparsely active.
