I happened to be looking through the FCC database and came across this license WQLC746 which is licensed to Westchester County and it happened to make me curious since I didn't see it listed in the database. It has a transmitter located ontop of the HPN Terminal. Any idea of whether or not this is part of the Westchester County Trunked radio system or is part of a new county pd radio system or county fire system??

Also has an associated callsign of WQJG838

Frequencies are:

470.9000 FB2 Output Power of 248.000
473.9000 MO

Thanks

I would think it is something for the airport, but 248 watts is a lot of power.

Even better the ERP is 402 watts...mobiles are 106.9 ERP OUCH.....
license also says ATTN: to DoIT radio and the assoc callsign repeaters are all well over 200 watts ERP....

I also originally thought that it may have been for the airport maybe like airport ARFF fireground or dispatch channel but then realized that 248 watts is a lot of power for covering a small area such as the airport.

They also have additional sites:

1 - Fixed FOX LANE HS, RT 172
BEDFORD, NY WESTCHESTER County 41-11-09.1 N, 073-40-39.4 W
P 2 - Fixed KEELER LANE
NORTH SALEM, NY WESTCHESTER County 41-19-10.4 N, 073-33-49.3 W
P 3 - Fixed 10 PINESBRIDGE ROAD
OSSINING, NY WESTCHESTER County 41-10-59.1 N, 073-49-48.5 W
P 4 - Fixed 181 BENEFIELD BLVD.
PEEKSKILL, NY WESTCHESTER County 41-18-05.1 N, 073-53-43.7 W
P 5 - Fixed ADAMS LANE
POUND RIDGE, NY WESTCHESTER County 41-13-19.0 N, 073-34-20.0 W
P 6 - Fixed 1500 BALDWIN ROAD, MOHANSIC GC
YORKTOWN, NY WESTCHESTER County 41-16-16.7 N, 073-48-38.9 W

ERP is (basically) calculated by taking the transmitter output power - feedline loss - connector loss - duplex or other filter losses + antenna gain. So depending on those gains and losses, a starting round number for transmitter power out like 100 can become an odd number.

Have you tried mapping those sites on Google Earth to see if their distribution indicates a possible use?

No need to do this. These sites are used by various Westchester Systems including the UHF Trunked System and the County PD.

I've been listening to this freq, and have not heard anything yet.


Also, in The Request for Waiver at http://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsApp/ApplicationSearch/applAdmin.jsp?applID=4610320#attachments, there is reference to this freq, and three other freq's, to be used for the North Zone of the UHF Trunked System.
