This is a basic question ....... I live in Berryville, VA and yet I get a lot of VSP Culpeper 1 & 2 traffic off the Apple Orchard site. Apple Orchard is 160 miles from my house. I can understand getting a lot of hits on Mount Weather, which I can see from my house, but I'm confused about Apple Orchard. The WVIRP system seems to have some similar observations such as the Craigsville site which I pick up all the time and is hundreds of miles away. Are we sure these control channels in the RRDB are correctly matched to the sites?

I experienced the same thing, except my scanner would say I was getting traffic from both towers, I would get traffic off the Halifax tower, but I lived near the Hampton tower, I've found that there are numerous towers around the State that use the same CC frequencies but are very distant from each other, if you look through the Site list and find out what towers use the same frequencies you can just lock out the distant tower.
