While searching through the VHF band for possible new STARS CC's, I found a system that I cannot identify. I have run Pro96com and have a little more information, but no call sign was displayed. I am receiving the signal in Rockingham County, but it is a little weak. I searched through the RR db and have not found anything P25 in VA or WVa.

CC is 153.1700.
System ID: 89A
Tower ID: 144 (T012C)
WACN: 01DB6
it displayed a site ID: 142 (T012A) ch 00-1006 Freq: 153.5150

CC 153.170 is also listed as Ch. 00-0868

I only ran Pro96com for a short period of time this morning and. Any ideas what or where this is???

Ah ha, I believe that is the answer. Thanks, guys. It looks like the CC is in Madison County.

I am able to monitor that site from Fredericksburg, and I think I was the one who submitted it to the database. I was kind of surprised when I first saw what I was monitoring!

For future reference, if you find a control channel and can obtain the SysID from the scanner or Unitrunker or whatever, you can look up systems by SysID on this page:

RadioReference.com - Scanner Frequencies and Radio Frequency Reference Database

(See the third section of the page, on the far right.)
