Then there is the mystery 39.3 D632, which keeps popping up, with no traffic. However I did hear one brief transmission with a male's voice on it.

Got a call sign heard for 33.900 KDP455. Read a tone of 203.5, but this radio is sometimes prone to falsing.

33.900 203.5 is the (old?) Plymouth County Control.

KDP455 33.900 is MUSKINGUM, OH, which is where a lot of the DX has been.

I've been sitting on this one, since your post with ZERO luck...
Could it be a local UHF Image ? as I had a few winters ago from a 460 DPW being heard on 39 Mhz and chased my tail for months, till we heard a local address. :D

Nope. Two different receivers, and using IFX. It's real. It sounds like it may be simulcasting a P25 system?

Not strong, it sounds still very fringe. Southern Accent too.

33.86 UnID . Fire dispatch.

Not heard on my Pro-2055 with low band dipole.

However, I forgot I have an ICOM IC-R75 with coverage up to 60 MHZ on a Wellbrook antenna.
It does not have CTCSS reading capability. But 33.86 was coming in. Too bad I missed the beginning of the dispatch.

Correct, it's not. Right now they TX on 33.90 only from their dispatch and that gets received by the mountaintop sites and repeated out on the 159.900.
