well unless i'm missing something,both of those don't work.470.7375 is what Lake Zurick police is on,and i can hear them plain as day in Island lake,and the EDACS system is what they use here in town and i havn't heard anything that sounds like wauconda. But thanks for the help. Anything is better that nothing.

I used to hear them on 159.285 (PL 127.3) more than on the 470.7375 network. You might check 476.7375 (PL 97.4) or 154.980 (PL 127.3) also. Another possibility might be 158.730 (PL 136.5) which is Island Lake, Tower Lakes, etc. I'm not up in that area much these days, so that's about all the help I can give.

just wanted to let everybody know that wauconda is temp.using their in car repeaters. 155.2350 is what it is. Dispatch is getting a all new 911 system that can call everbody in town if there is something happing,i guess that means new radios too. I read in the paper that they are going to test the system this saturday at 10:00 am. so thanks for tring to help

Reverse 911 has nothing to do with the radio system (unless they just happen to be funded together).

The elusive Wauconda PD dispatch freq has been found! Finally heard
them tonight.

They disappeared from the old 470.7375 some time ago, and have now
popped up on 155.2275 (D412). According to the license the input
should probably be 153.9575. The license (WPVZ983) also includes base
and mobile operations on 154.1375 and portables on 154.0175, so these
freqs might bear watching as well.
