I am having a severe mental block about the new STARS dispatch TGs and the corresponding old VHF dispatch frequencies.

I've been driving to Florida though Virginia since 1993 and have the old frequencies (that I got from my Monitor America Guide) memorized. However, when I was trying to clarify which talk group equals what old dispatch frequency, looking at the Monitor America and the database gave me different channel numbers and PL tones. (The second Richmond frequency is missing, BTW).
I know I can figure this out, but I'd like to have someone confirm it.

Could someone familiar with the old AND new systems possibly correlate the new dispatch TGs with the old frequencies?

Suggestion: Maybe list (in the database): Richmond 1 (Old 159.000) etc.

I know that would be helpful to me and perhaps to others.

Travel via 95

I assume you travel from the MD, DE, NJ direction like the rest of the world.... Inner and outer beltway via 95 or 495 use Fairfax 1 and Fairfax 2 (depends on your route of travel in and around DC). Culpeper 1 for Stafford Cnty south to about Kings Dominion( Culpeper 2 for 81 Winchester area). From that point on Richmond 1 and 2 depending on your route.

Towers
Arlington-152.5325
Fairfax----152.2025
Independent Hill--152.5475
EdgeHill--152.5175
Thornburg--152.0975
Richmond--151.0375
Louisa--152.0225
Rumford--152.5025
Petersburg--152.5325
Emporia--151.1825

I would advise to double check the frequencies and add alternates.

Hope this helps.
