Hi, I'm new to this forum. My inlaws live in Onslow county. I visit there 2 times a year. I bring my scanner along to listen in. My questions are; on 155.880 (Dispatch) When there is a call i can receive the far away departments like they are on a repeater. However, it doesn't have that classic repeater carrier delay. The close departments (i'm in the bear creek area) don't seen to to receive like that. it sounds like a normal 2 way radio. Is there some type of repeater system? My second question is this; where is the transmitter located? My scanner has a signal strength meter and it gets burried. I even get almost a full signal with the antenna off. thanks for your time. Matt, Rochester, NY

Two things. Onslow County fire is on a repeater. However some department never swithed over and used it so they are on simplex. The transmitter is located in Jacksonville at the EOC. Hope this helps.
