100 miles isn't unusual given that you were "slap out" in the middle of nowhere. Put the antenna at 500' and you can probably cover the whole panhandle! (well, maybe not quite).Chaos703 said:I just got back from Black Mesa this weekend. I monitored a strong control channel most of the way from Woodward to Guymond. It seemed to be coming from the Saplout site. I didn't pick up any TGs, just the control. That site must be a real blow torch. Unless there's multiple sites up there that broadcast the same control channel on the same frequency, I was picking it up from nearly 70-100 miles away.
Ok Thanks, Like Talkaroundtiawah466 said:I have heard DPS B1 Troop B's id of 34320 several times today on the Vinita site. To answer PolarBears I-call question It is a way for a conversation between two radios with out all of the other users on that talkgroup hearing it usually you can hear troopers talking about where they want to meet to go eat and stuff like that. OHP uses it alot. My Uniden 780XLT has a ID number that is entered into a channel and it allows you to hear all of the I-calls that are done in the system. I would expect shortly we will start hearing a couple of new talkgroups for Troop L in Rogers County.
