We had a band opening this morning, in custom search I came across freqy 770.71875 -0246 on my 996xt which shows it's Tower 246 which is not listed on rr.com list...It is a "alt" for T102 but that was using its normal control channel. The only TGs showing up were 9015-RI and Idot 3750 ... Anyone know where 246 tower is located....TY

Was a good band opening.
I lost all cell reception and TV reception, but heard New York 2 meter repeaters and worked 2 Ohio 2 meter repeaters.
Can be a PIA in one sense and a blessing in an other.
Who says 800 does not duct?

Wondering if there is a chance that T128 might have been renumbered as T246. Site renumbering (especially with North sites) has happened more than a handful of times over the past few years. Did you happen to be using a scanner (SDS100, SDS200, etc.) that actually shows the RFSS and Site information on the display, Ron? Is there anyone in the greater Moline area who could confirm the current site number for the Moline 700 MHz site?

Have some Pro96Com files that are about a year old:
240 Joy
241 East Moline
242 Illinois City
243 Rock Island
244 East Moline IDOC
246 Moline (700)
247 Moline (800)
Wow! Thanks for the information. This would conveniently fill in seven site numbers currently "missing" from the RR SC21 database page. I'm checking with Terry Weatherford to see if these site numbers can be updated in the database based on kramerdoof's information.

All seven of these sites have been renumbered and updated in the database. Thanks to kramerdoof and calebotten15 for the information and legwork!
