COVINGTON, COUNTY OF
COLLINS, MS 39428
They have a license on 39.18

However, I still consider this as an UnID.

The 107.2 PL occasionally wanders over to 110.9.

A separate transmission heard with no PL logged gave a EDT time zone.

39.1800 107.2 was (is?) the Low Band VHF simulcast from Oakham Fire in Worcester County.

Isn't the log time the local computer's time?

The time was not a computer log. The time was the verbal time given by dispatch.

I did hear an page / initial dispatch on 39.18 PL 107.2 for a brush fire this evening. Dispatcher seemed to have a New England accent, and the signal did not seem like E-skip. Only the initial call dispatch was heard.

Confirming heard both Rutland and Oakham toned out on separate incidents from 'Fire Alarm' on 39.19 PL 107.2

2 tone tone outs and initial dispatch. I also thought I heard some followup traffic.

39.18 PL 107.2, add Barre to the list of towns being dispatched / patched from 460.2375 PL 91.5.
Both signals coming in about the same (fair).
