Steve/KB8FAR/Gallia County 911 Center
I live on the west side of Columbus and I listen to CPD Zone3 and county west dispatcher.
But what I listen to the most is all city,state and federal tactical channels as well as the police chopper on am aircraft band and on the 800mhz input frequencies. Never a dull moment.
I monitor Madison, Fayette, Union, Champaign, Logan, Delaware, Pickaway, Fairfield & Franklin Counties.
I "originate" the radio traffic you hear @ MedFlight, Madison County and Prairie Twp Fire. I work full time as a Communications Specialist for MedFlight of Ohio. I dispatch part time for Madison County Sheriff's Office & Prairie Township Fire Department.
Pickaway County, near the teeming metropolis of Commercial Point. Like Mark N8ICW, monitoring everything as far out as I can receive.
Day to day? Franklin, Delaware, Union, Madison, Pickaway, Fayette, Clark, Ross, Hocking, Fairfield, Licking, Perry, Muskingum, Knox and Morrow counties; when conditions are right, stuff from much farther afield in Ohio.
Ohio MARCS sites Columbus, London, Orient, Circleville, Bainbridge, Pleasant Valley, Londonderry, Sugar Grove and Lancaster.
Favorite monitoring targets: Railroads, Fire/EMS, Military, trunked systems, civil aviation sometimes... if there was a navigable waterway neaby I'd monitor that, too.
