This is a good chance for you to use the new proximity feature. Just click on the callsign for each freq to see where the tower is located. There are towers near both Coudersport and Galeton, so look at the frequencies used at each of these towers.With all the Changes in Potter, can someone give me a break down of the location of the repeaters? I go camping there for 2 weeks every year and I would like to be able to monitor the going-ons while I am there. I camp at Cherry Springs State Park which is on Rt 44. on a summit (roughly 2,300' which is great for listening) between Coudersport and Galeton. I have the dispatch frequencies, I would like to know which tactical channels to listen to so i may hear mostly Coundersport and Galeton Fire.
It would help to have a local input, but if you look at the frequencies listed, you will will see some are only Coudersport, and others are only Galeton. Technically speaking, that should be correct, but it is not uncommon for agencies to deviate from that as long as they are licensed for a frequency. To make maters worse, mobiles are generally allowed a large radius from a tower. See the mobile listings of 16-32 mile radius from the towers: http://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsApp/UlsSearch/licenseLocSum.jsp?licKey=1298177I see that certain towers are at certain locations, I am curious which channels are used by coudersport and galeton fire. I guess I would need to talk to someone from that neck of the woods to find out though.
