Can anyone confirm if Districts 3,4,5 have switched to new setup. I presume sometime today dist 1 should flip.

So am I to understand correctly that the new input frequencies are also the output frequencies?
When you look it gives you the input frequency, but no output frequency.
Just wondering what it shall be so I can re-program the channels I have for PA Turnpike.
Thanks!

where do you see "input" listed ? I'm looking at the
RRDB and mine shows "output or simplex" in the
frequency collun.

These changes were made a month or more ago where the inputs and outputs were swapped. The most recent database change was me deleting the remaining old listings from the transition and removing the word "new" from the frequency description for the remaining listings since it was not needed any longer to differentiate between new and old.

I am not hearing a thing on these new frequencies. Do I have the correct output frequency for districts statewide and 1 through 5? It's odd that at least they are transmitting a little bit.

Which districts are you trying to hear? I can confirm that 3, 4, and 5 are all good. I can hear all three from home and while mobile.

I can also confirm that Districts 1 & 2 are good. In fact I've noted some improvement on District 1.

I'm about 10 miles from Easton and I plugged in PTC 5 Dispatch today, it sounds HORRIBLE. It sounds like the simulcast is out of sync. The old freq always sounded pretty good.
