Was down on the British Columbia / Washington State border today. I was is Surrey which borders Blaine. I had my scanner on frequency stalker mode and came across a number of "new" channels that are nnot currently listed on the RRDB and after checking the FCC and IC databases, the only evidence I can find is that the frequencies are licensed to ORBCOMM out of East Wenatchee, Douglas County, WA. and furthermore, shows that it is listed under the: International Bureau Filing System Database as CONUS (Continental US).

I supect that I am monitoring the CBP along with the Blaine Police Department who I though were on the new Justice Integrated Wireless Network system but these frequencies don't match up to that and are either "in addition" to the existing JIWN trunk or perhaps something new that nnobody has come across yet until I found them today.

Here is what I found:

163.035 CTCSS 141.3 Definiately local police of some sort dispatching calls in Washington


167.005 NAC711
167.310 NAC712

167.460 NAC712 Dispatcher in plain voice – only some cars encrypted!!
One car pulled someone over on Peace Portal Drive for a check.
Shortly after WCF District 13 was dispatched to same locale
On 154.430 CTCSS 114.3 to meet up with "law enforcement unit"
167.760 NAC712
172.060 NAC712

The channels would change making me think trunking of some sort


Anyone can add to this??

Thank you for the heads up on the "frequency step" thing too. When I am in Signal Stalker mode it just finds the frequency and displays it and the corresponding information.

I would guess that it is safe to assume that these are indeed part of the JIWN Blaine system <NAC712> (167.3125, 167.4625, 167.7625) and based on my location at the time (being up fairly high on 0 Avenue) I was able to hear the Bellingham system <NAC711> also (167.0000).

The only addition I may have then is the 172.0625 <NAC712> which is NOT currently listed as part of the Blaine or Bellingham trunks.

163.0350 is not a valid US Frequency.

163.0375 would be a US Valid and is generally the input to (WA/OR) BLM and BIA Repeaters - depending on your make/model it could be an image from the 153/154 Band
could it have been 154.4300 ? As it is the same PL

The $7xx NACS are generally IWN, many not in the DB Though, when you drill down to the Site info

167.0050 is invalid, likely 167.0125 or 167.0000
167.3100 is invalid, likely 167.3125
167.4600 is invalid, likely 167.4625
167.7600 is invalid, likely 167.7625
172.0600 is invalid, likely 172.0625
