In Virginia, the HEAR frequency (155.3400).....Does it use a PL or is it CSQ? I'm thinking different hospitals use different PL's. Also, the statewide channel 155.205, does it use a PL or is it CSQ? Thanks
In the Roanoke area, you are going to find MOST ambulances cut to the chase by having a trunked radio for the Roanoke TRS or they use the UHF med channels. Either way, you are right, HEAR is basically not used there. Go a little south to the Montgomery Co. and southern areas and you will see HEAR used more often than not.FYI...as far as Southwest Virginia (Roanoke area), I don't know of any squads that use HEAR or statewide. There are some outlying squads transporting to Roanoke Memorial that will use HEAR or med channels. Almost all squads use cell phones for contacting all area hospitals. Very few even have VHF radios in their units.
----------------------Wondering if anyone has a listing of the med channel repeater locations with accompanying PL. NC has a nice map in their PDF with PL tones, but I can't find anything for Virginia. I'm in Reidsville, NC and I'm hearing a Med 10 repeater (462.975) with an open transmitter, PL 136.5. NC doesn't use that PL on their med system and I'm thinking it's a VA Med 10 repeater, maybe on a mountain in the Roanoke area. I'd like to identify which repeater it is so I can make the responsible party aware.

Note: Shore Memorial Hospital is no longer in Nassawadox. Last year the hospital moved to Onley in Accomack County.
