While at Steele Indian School Park today, I did some scanning in the 162-174 band, specifically looking for VA hospital comms. I found the following:
166.0125 (DCS 114) VA hospital housekeeping (primarily) and police.
166.2125 Unknown, not enough comms to identify
170.5875 (DCS 156?) possibly VA Hospital Police.
At one point, there was an announcement that the director was leaving, on one of the second two channels, (I was driving by that point and couldn't catch which one) and it sounded like s/he had an escort. Then I see a news headline that the director and some other top people have been placed on administrative leave, pending the current investigation(s) into the alleged wrong-doing at the hospital.
Anyway, would anyone like to confirm the information, and/or identify the unknown frequency, and submit it to the DB?

I thought I had also heard some 406-420 MHz activity from the hospital at some point in the past, but I didn't hear anything today.

170.5875 156 DPL is in the DB and was confirmed a while back as VA Hospital security. Hospitals Scanner Frequencies and Radio Frequency Reference

I have documented several hits of 166.0125 114 DPL with traffic that sounded like a janitor, asking someone to come up to "5D", and "Laundry 2 calling Laundry 1". I have never monitored enough traffic to confirm the user, but I think we can confirm this now. I will submit to the DB on your behalf.

I have never documented a hit on 166.2125, so I can't help you there.

166.2125 may or may not be VA hospital related. It was just a frequency that I caught while in the park. It may be some other federal agency, I just wasn't able to catch enough to identify any possible user.
