If any DB admins are reading this, please put "(rarely used)" (without the quotes) after all channels except for 2 and 7.

... I think, they have a tower in Southhampton, I don't know of any other 800 towers further out east then that. But frankly, that tower should provide the whole east end area 800 access. ... Most of the towers seem to put out ~ 75 watts ERP (according to some of the FCC entries I'm reading anyway).funkenjack said:SCPD's 155.850MHz (the old Ch. 3, 3rd Pct.) and 156.030MHz (the old Ch. 8 B car-to-car) are still used in Suffolk County -- 850 is the main dispatch channel (repeater out) for the Southold Town PD on the far east end, and 030 is Southold's "Channel B" point-to-point. BTW, the SCPD's 800 TRS is clearly readable as far east as the village of Orient. Nice to be able to hear traffic from far-west Suffolk that far east.
