Seems I spotted a new license a while back issued to Reach Air Medical Services for 152.3075 with a repeater on Peterson Butte way down south in Linn County. Has anyone monitored any activity yet? PL? Don't know if this will be used to coordinate their ground activities or also be used to communicate with their chopper Reach 8 which I hear occasionally calling OHSU's ER on HEARS with a transport from somewhere down south. I think the license was issued along with other new ones or modified ones for their California operations. Looking at their website, I found a map showing their coverage area:

Well since Reach 8 is based at the Corvallis Airport and does a lot in the Linn/Benton county area I would say Peterson is right in the middle of their service area.

Guess the SAT Phones they said that they use for dispatch were getting too expensive.
