That frequency certainly sounds familiar to me, I believe that was the South Road Channel when I was running.Wasn't the SEPTA South Conductor channel (AAR 16/160.350 mHz) the original Reading road channel?
So now I'm familiar with that where you literally need to scan two frequencies to get both sides of the conversation and it is simplex, when we put in the North Road frequency for example which is 160.59 we hear both sides of the conversation. That has been the North Road frequency as long as I can remember. Wouldn't we need to be scanning two different frequencies and it would just be line-of-sight simplex?It is not a repeater but a split duplex. Talk on one frequency and listen on the other.
They sure sound like repeaters, complete with squelch tail. 'North' for sure, as I listen to it quite often. I'm hearing both mobiles and base on the same (output) frequency. if it were duplex, you would hear base on one freq, mobiles on another, would you not?It is not a repeater but a split duplex. Talk on one frequency and listen on the other.
