Hey Guys,

Just wondering how strong the freq strength is for their dispatch and tactical/medical channels? They are the primiary dispatch agecny for most FD and EMS in southwest NH and southern VT. They have tower locations in Keene, NH; Westmoreland, NH; Gilsum, NH; Lempster, NH; Winchester, NH; Greenfield, NH; Peterborough, NH; Wilmington, VT; Stratton, VT; Temple Mt, NH; Newfane, VT; Alstead, NH; Dublin, NH; Unity, NH; Halifax, VT; Mt Sunapee, NH; Fitzwilliam, NH; Charlestown, NH and Marlboro, VT. So basically, without the terrain, how far can I hear the signal?

I'm posting this in NY forums because this is where I want to hear it. Thanks!

I hear them pretty good on 154.43 - I am just west of downtown Boston.

154.43 has multiple synchronized simulcast base transmitters AFAIK.

154.145 has 1 repeater on a mountain in Vermont IIRC.

159.45 I think has 1 base on Hyland Hill just west of Keene IIRC (and it is used as the Keene FD main channel).

155.265 and 155.715 might have a couple of hilltop bases.

I think the rest of the freqs dont have bases or repeaters - just mobiles and portables.

33.78 reportedly carries all of the 154.43 traffic - it might be from a base station on Hyland Hill.

Since 154.430 went to simulcast, I can hear them loud and clear in Latham. Which means in order to listen to Green Island Fire (also on 154.430) I have had to turn on the CTCSS filter.
