Found this frequency recently, 159.2025,wqyy939,Odnr,i see 6 locations for it in ohio. Since they are currently on marcs ip, I wonder what the usage for this channel is for? A new mre?
Tar Hollow and Zaleski are the only 2 even in SE near a park, Athen is listed as State st.Some of the state parks in southeast Ohio have spotty or non-existent MARCS and cell phone service. They are in the middle of nowhere. I am guessing that VHF is used in some way to provide reliable comms for park employees including law enforcement.
The Athens site is the ODNR district office on East State Street. The Zaleski MARCS site is on Sheets-McCoy Road and not the State Route 278 address listed on the WQYY-939 license. All of these VHF sites involve a simple base station and a 50' tower somewhere on or near an ODNR facility. If I am able to visit one of these areas, I'll give it a listen and see what I can find out.
