Lots of progress made the past few days finding the remaining sites, good stuff. (y)

The following sites still need to be fully confirmed before they can be added to the database. The usual info is requested: verify Site #, find NAC, find alternate control channels and traffic (voice/data) channels, find site neighbors/peers.

Site #​
Site Name​
Control Channel​
67Mercer (CRAW33)151.2125
140Penfield (CLEA03)154.1975
141Johnsonburg (ELK09)152.545
142Martinsburg 700 AG (BLAI02)769.15625
143Blain 700 AG (PERR01)769.41875
145Rocky Grove 700 AG (VENA08)769.65625
147Hermitage (MERC33)161.8125
148Gulph Mills 800 (MONY81)853.6375
149New Castle (LAWR31)855.7125
I have tried to monitor Elk09 but no luck yet. When I try to cross reference to any FCC database I cannot seem to locate. Can someone post the license so I can cross reference a location and check while traveling?

Thanks. Curious as the frequency was listed as 152.545 however I do not see that on the list. Would that be something different or a typo?
152.545 is licensed under WPVH379, which is a Part 22 paging license. The frequencies are licensed in a geographic market, not site-based.

Control channel and alternates are unchanged.

I wonder what the deal is with UID 420154 repeatedly keying up on TG40086? This has been going on for quite sometime.

Very strange?

I've been getting a lot of 3-5 second key-ups on that TG with no voice. I haven't looked at the radio ID's yet.

Couple of recent observations: A Parole agent's car (assigned in Bucks County) had the antenna changed out from the OpenScam whip for the monstrous all band antenna. Same story for a Neshaminy State Park ranger truck.

Is there an updated TG list somewhere to download? I've tried searching for the excel spreadsheet but cannot seem to find. While in Warren county I noticed that I seemed to be missing a lot of radio traffic with TG's 2002-2008 programmed in that I could hear on a FD portable during recent forest fires. I was monitoring the Kinzua Dam WARR34 site which is the area they were definitely operating in. Are there additional TG's or perhaps these TG's are only assigned to certain tower sites? I would think for county wide operations the TG's would be active on all towers or am I mistaken?

Forestry was on their TGs. 12674 was the one I heard the most on the Seneca site.

Turnpike console 15000031 was testing today. Came up clear on Global Tac 10 and encrypted on 10246, 10247, 10248, 10249, 10250, 10069, and 10070, in that order, before repeating transmissions on some of the talkgroups.

I believe these longer RIDs for consoles are for non-Motorola consoles. If I had to guess, those are the five new PSP dispatch channels and some tac channels for Troop T.

Checking logs, there was also a 10071 in the list yesterday. So, 10069 is probably "Troop T", 10070 is probably "T Tac 1", and 10071 is probably "T Tac 2".

I have a couple friends up that way including the sheriff but I haven't been successful yet in goading them into a DSD+ install. I'l keep trying.

The Williamsport site is on the air. I have line of site from my house, no activity heard on it yet though since most comms are PSP and encrypted.

Added COLU01 - Catawissa's NAC (941) to the wiki.

Unrelated, hearing TG 11647 today, not in DB, but clearly a PennDOT traffic crew.
