I don't think anything will be on the air until early next year at the soonest. First testing is supposed to be in NW PA to test interference with Canada above Line A.

What is the NAC to these. I hear a 151.025 (I don't have scanner splintered for VHF right now).

Hear a P25 CC on that frequency with bad signal in Pittsburgh. NAC is 89A.

Interesting. Maybe testing will begin in fiscal year 2016 rather than calendar year 2016. Do these transmitters seem to identify regularly?

Good catch. Will add that one to the list. Looking at the license, looks like
it will become part of the system I had listed

Thanks

There are similar licenses for every county (often multiple licenses in the same county).

I haven't timed them, but they seem to Id about every thirty minutes or so.

It's been a while since anyone has posted on here. Are these just the VHF overlay for the state and there's a separate list for UHF?

These will be sites for the P25 Phase 2 upgrade that is being rolled out over the next few years. As has been mentioned before, testing is supposed to start in NW PA in 2016.

Looking through FCC today trying to find PSP trunked near me in Northampton County I found this info.

WQVC257
LEHI05, Flint Hill Road
Center Valley, Lehigh County

170.1500 8K10F1D, 8K10F1E & 9K80D7W

Plugged it in this morning. Nothing heard. I imagine it's for the same system?

More than likely yes. Don't expect to hear anything until at least next year when testing begins - and even that will start out in the northwest part of the state so it might be longer than that.
