A few other notes from up north:
The wiki had Dexter and Newport PDs sharing 154.845 PL 123.0. I heard Penobscot communicating with Newport using a 141.3 tone; this is what the RRDB has listed. I did not hear Dexter at all on 154.845. Dexter has a license for FB2s on both 154.965 and 156.210, clues for my (or anyone else's!) next trip.
Piscataquis Fire on 153.920; I was hearing a few different repeaters, PLs heard were 167.9 and 100.0, and sometimes no tone was shown. Perhaps they drop the PL when transmitting pager tones?
Piscataquis Sheriff heard dispatching Greenville and other towns on 155.025/192.8.
Greenville FD 154.205/167.9
MSCOMMNET: The solar-powered site on Moose/Squaw Mtn in Greenville seems to have 160.140/$80E as a 'primary'; it's usually carrying Zone 3A/TG 731. 160.350/$80E seems to carry traffic on other TGs; I heard some 1700 units talking on this freq. (I don't remember which agency uses the 1700 callsigns and I can't find it in the wiki. Fire Marshalls maybe...?). Nothing heard on 154.680/$80E, I would guess that this is used if the first 2 freqs are busy. I'm at a loss as to how the system can deal with affiliations and direct radios to specific frequencies without a control channel, but it seems to work somehow. The only frequency at the Big Spencer solar-powered site (172.775/$80E) was carrying Zone 3A traffic. Nothing was heard on the Moose/Squaw or Big Spencer Region Nets (155.430 and 161.130 respectively, both 162.2)
Central Maine Power: LTR clicks and CWID was heard on 862.5875 and 862.8375. No voice was heard and I was unable to obtain any LCN data.
160.260 no PL- Canadian Pacific Railway "Iowa" dispatcher/trains/hotbox detectors.
I was monitoring marine VHF channels 9, 13, 16, and 69 and heard nothing. I've heard hunters and truckers bootlegging on channel 69 in the Jackman/Parlin Pond area in the past. The family and I went for a cruise on the SS Katahdin on Moosehead Lake and I observed the crew using Baofeng portables (gasp!), but I was unable to find which frequency they were on.
