I heard traffic on 416.05 on my BC780/Diamond discone, which I thought was Fed traffic. From what I was hearing, though, it turned out to be local police dispatch that originates from 423.5.

What would cause this? These freqs seem too close to be caused by imaging...is that possible?

Eric, a little cross checking with the Ohio scanner folks would be needed, but federal systems don't all work the same way a public service system does. They work what we would refer to as hams as a 'reverse pair' - that is, the input freq is higher than the output (usually it's lower).

Some Fedcom folks might recognize the pairing. Try to dig the PL or DCS up, if available - it will help tie down the agency.
