I created this thread since we were getting a little off topic on the WVIRP thread.
http://www.radioreference.com/forums/showthread.php?t=18334&page=44


I have my 996T set to scan the Berkeley and Jefferson WVIRP sites in search mode as well as common WVSP and WV State freqs for the area. Also scanning common MED Channels and common EMS freqs. All are being logged and recorded. I have TunkTracker set on the Berkeley Co. site since it's fully operational. I'll post what I get tonight if its worth it.

Hearing several conversations between I-68 and Charleston on 9305. DOT2, DOT7, DOT23 are all calling for "Charleston Control" on this talk group. DOT23 is located near Cooper's Rock.

I have heard Kanawha County's mobile command unit set up, but did not hear the location.

That's what I heard yesterday on 9305. I think they were maybe setting up yesterday.

State EOC has been on tg 9771 which they have been calling Metro.

At 1205 the hospital was informed that the "patients" from the dirty bomb are being decontaminated in the field and have not started arriving at the hospital yet.

The traffic regarding the conference call was Cabell County EOC calling the state EOC. Also heard that KC-1 (Kanawha mobile command unit) was taking down at 1230.

Woo-hoo

They did not specify but I did hear they were several in the North East of the state. Our area went till 5pm today so I did get the chance to run UT at home and snag on TG 9303 RID of 99504 and on TG 9305 got DOT 7’s RID 99102 and got RID 99101 on same TG. Said they would be back out 8am. I wish I did not have work, I missed most of the traffic at work answering phones.

Might have had some air assets involved with the drill as I noticed more helo traffic than normal over Martinsburg. Had the air-band system locked out in my 396 to concentrate on the Berkeley County system which was probably a mistake. It won't be locked out tomorrow.
