I was getting both NAC's on it this am. Altho many scanners have an issue with latency where it keeps the NAC from prior channels. I believe that's what you had, Bill. 173.7875 is definitely not MSCommNet. For sure CBP w/$300 and possibly $100 & $400 (both unverified!). This was a nice two way prop...

123.100 is actually designated (worldwide, I think) as a search & rescue channel. In the past the Coast Guard used it quite often. However, I have not heard them on it in a number of years. Civil Air Patrol seems lately to be the most frequent user, sometimes when they are serving as simulated targ...

Piscataquis SO is licensed for five repeater sites for the 155.0250 frequency. In addition to definitely using different PLs on this repeater frequency, it appears from the licenses that there may be two different input frequencies. I can confirm both 107.2 & 192.8 PLs are in use; not sure what else...
