Their license shows one base unit located on the end of North Street (100w) and 35 mobile units (50w). Hope that helps.

The frequency is dead and even sitting in their yard up there! There has to be someone in the Augusta area on here that knows something?

They may not be using radios. It's a very common thing now a days to see DPW people using push to talk cell phones for comms.

Try 154.310 an extra frequency on their current VHF police and fire system
460.450 shows a repeater for the Police but they appear to be on VHF now with simulcast P25 system.
155.055 fixed base for School Busses

Try checking some private digital trunking systems (Maine Radio, Horizon, RCM, etc.) - it's possible they're using a private system and don't have their own frequencies/systems licensed. I know a few school departments around the state do this. You'll likely have to sort through a lot of oil companies, taxis, and garbage truck companies, but it's worth a shot.

I can only occasionally receive this trunked system in Augusta, but pretty sure I picked up Augusta DPW on TG 01-0003 today.

I also can tell you I dont hear full conversations sometimes, its alot of 1 sided.

The CC are 152.9075
152.3075

The system works great from truck to truck but listening on a the scanner sucks really bad. Im not sure if Im missing something or not. I no we only use the Augusta freqs and those 2 CC so it should be as clear as a bell but when you listen on the scanner the system is a mess and seams broking
