Sometimes I hear OHP aircraft , both OHP1 & Cessnas tell ground units to switch over
to "OHP direct" on 800 & lowband .I have tried to monitor this with no joy with OHP1
& ground units not more than 3 miles from my 10-19. Is it some sort of 800 talkaround?

That's what I have heard them use during aircraft operations here in Troop B Tulsa.

855.98750 KNJA691 M 77.0 PL 800 Simplex Talkaround -- Used Car to Car and by OHP Aircraft FM

Enjoy...

45.22 mhz is used statewide for car to car and numerous troop bases use it for base freq Enid,Clinton etc.

they are talking line of sight, , it is labeled ohp direct in their radios. its not going thru any repeater...like a cb. so if your not within a mile or so from them you cant pick it up.

Kind of like when Roscoe wants to talk to Cletus about those "Duke boys"? :)

It certainly does help with better equipment, including a tower and/or some professional radios. I would say 10 miles isn't out of the question on any regular day with a tuned vertial on one's vehicle with a "real" radio. Being on low-band VHF, the signals should "skip" a little better, so one might hear much further than 10 miles.
