Hello, while I know that VHF is an unfortunate fatality in the area, what frequencies are still used on VHF? I know Canyon Fire/EMS dispatch (at least for Caldwell) is still working. Are there others to listen to?

Not much in Ada/Canyon country, depending on your location, antenna and equipment.

Payette and Oyhee counties still use VHF/UHF, also Gem and Valley county,

further west Washington and and Oregon's Malheur county and Ontario
I pick up Ontario and Mahler county on my Whistler WS-1040

Not the hobby it used to be......

Youre in Boise and can get Malheur/OPD? Im in Nampa and never even get Payette county. Are there any good spots for catching those from down here in the Valley? Or potentially Valley County and/or ISP Brundage channel? ISP cascade and Elmore SO seem to the farthest i can get from here. I must be doing something wrong
