Does anybody know if East Polk County Fire is using a different frequency ? 154.385 is listed but i never hear the East side, I get all of West Polk Fire loud and clear.

Thanks for the info

No it is the same frequency, you just may not be able to hear it on the west side because of the mountains blocking line of sight. This is why East and the west have 2 separate repeaters :)

Is the east side as busy as the west ? I wonder if its worth trying to pick it up.......

Thats because the East repeater isnt up high enough, and the west is about 3,500 ft + ASL
