Moundsville is using the low band 42.02 MHz frequency. They are also on the Ohio Co Sherrif frequency of 155.550. So far, the Wheeling tower of the state system is mostly dead. Many hours will pass with no traffic whatsoever.
I am about 25 or so mile from Keyser, WV. I have 42.10 programmed into my scanner and pick up traffic occasionally. All the transmissions I hear they always talk to Romney. I know they are in the same Troop but have different offices. Do the Keyser units call into Romney as their Headquarters and Dispatch. I also programmed in 42.26 I guess the input into the repeater but I never hear a thing. Can anyone shed some light on this???
There are only a few State Police "Dispatch" centers in WV. State Police units call the dispatch center that is in control of the area, typically the District Headquarters. The state is in the process of trying to get the new system up and running, but until they do state police units should remain on the low band frequencies.
Romney is the District Headquarters for Hampshire, Hardy, Grant, and Mineral counties; so all state police units in these counties call Romney.
