Hi folks,

I've been enjoying some reception from Virginia today on 39 mhz. Wonder can anyone help answer some questions.

First one is about Allegheny County 39.5mhz - I heard two dispatches on this frequency - one identifying as "Warm Springs" the other as (what I think was) "Horse Mountain" (?) - can anyone confirm for sure that these are Allegheny County? The first had a PL of 141.3 while the second was 110.9.

Heres a recording of that one: 39.5 Alleghany County VA EMS 2011-11-14 1640.wav - File Shared from Box - Free Online File Storage

Second question is about Police heard on 39.54 a dispatch called "1880 on SIRS" and asked them to contact Fort Pickett PD - anyone have any idea where this was coming from? I could hear the mobile weak and the dispatch very well.

Any help or information would be very interesting.

Best wishes from Ireland -

Awesome! SIRS stands for State Interoperability Radio System (I'm pretty sure) and is simple CSQ analog communications on 39.54. All state Troopers have a low band radio in their cars on that frequency as do many local law enforcement agencies around the state so they can talk to each other easily.
