Does anyone know if Powhatan County Fire/Ems D1 is the same as Tac 1 or is Tac 1 simplex(no repeater) to D1. I want to program then in my scanner and doesn't know if I should program al four or just the 2. I am not trying to sound dumb just confused.



Thanks

Powhatan Co. VFD TAC 1

I am too far away to confirm actual simplex usage but my database lists 154.4300 mhz., pl 118.8 simplex as VFD TAC 1. Programing only 154.4300 mhz. should get you both operations. The upside is the user can hear both the repeater and simplex comms. The downside is when the repeater is activated it will temporarily "wipe out" any simplex comm. Powhatan is one of the few cities/counties which use a different a pl tone for some but not all conventional repeater comms. New Kent Co. is another one.
