New this year is 461.3R 156.7pl for some unknown fair operations, possibly gates or some sort of maintenance, not exactly sure.

If you look at the license, it appears they added the following as repeaters, but I haven't been able to confirm yet.
463.375
464.325 (possible 156DPL)

Also appear to have added 2-watt simplex:
466.1125
461.1125
461.3625
466.3625

461.1125 141.3 was Ticketing
461.3625 D274 was Maintenance
466.3625 never heard

You are right, not sure how I didn't catch that. IIRC, Ticketing/gates and maintenance was the most active during the fair, such as if a printer at a booth was down, etc. Electricians only was active during the fair if they had a issue, but much more active during the initial setup and move-in when vendors need to be hooked up.

Well this was heard this year. 466.3625 156.7 Only ever heard folks calling one another.

What I heard
V TAC 13, U TAC 43, 8 TAC 93 for Security
V TAC 12, U TAC 42, 8 TAC 92 for Fire/EMS
469.0500 D351 Parking Control
464.9000 156.7 Shuttles and Gates
466.3625 156.7 Unknown - People talking, calling each other by name.
460.1375 218.1 - This one was odd. It wasn't strong from my vantage point near the Big E. I heard someone ask about laundry and uniforms. Then someone was escorted to open a door. I am thinking this was some sort of internal security channel
464.7375 141.3 Administration and Management were up.

461.3000 156.7 - Maintenance. I never heard it. I'll take your word on this.
