I'm finally getting around to working on my scanner and related records. I wanted to get some clarification around D-4 which used to be 159.075 (156.225) 136.5 which is how most FCC licenses had both listed with 156.225 as a MO. And since the current database listing is different I did a search and found a few references to 155.130 as a new freq replacing 159.075 however it is currently the input but people called it a simulcast so is 155.130 the actual district freq or some kind of a repeater? Also the only changes I could find in my records was a saved file I believe an old email from the turnpike saying that 156.225 is the receive freq and was merely changing the p/l tone from 136.5 to 71.9. with narrowbanding. Like I said I've been out of the game for awhile and things could have changed 10 times for all I know. Just wanting to confirm that 155.130 (159.075) 77.0 is what I should be sticking with. Thanks in advance for any help or clarification.

What is posted is correct for the whole state. Apparently from memory i believe the switch out that way was due to interference of a neighboring state user hence the frequency change to 155.130

They were all working fine when I went across the Turnpike from Ohio to the Philly area at the end of February.
