Was listening to the old 210XLT and I picked up 155.895 and it was Sullivan IN Fire/EMS. I just have the standard antenna on the 210XLT.

How many kilowatts are they running---this came blasting in. LOL. Its the only VHF freq I can receive from Sullivan County.

Im about 20 air miles from the transmitter. Must be VERY powerful.

They might be using 155.895 as a paging frequency.You could check the safe-t talkgroups and see if Sullivan County has a County FireDispatch talkgroup assigned to them.The calls will go out on the paging frequency and all the other traffic will be on safe-t talkgroup assigned to them for the call.

No, this was not a call out there were conversations occurring. There are some tones preceding the conversations, though but man is this a powerful station LOL it came blasting in like it was local.

From the RR DB that shows a repeater on that FREQ at 50 Watts. It is probably on one of the TV towers in FARMERBURG.

That would explain a lot. That puts me about 10-15 air miles from this repeater and if its on one of those TV towers it might be as much as 1000 feet up. Explains why 50 W is providing such a good signal. Thank you for the info!!
