PP&L - Pennsylvania Power and Light

PP&L Web Site

Outage Map

PPL generates and transmits electrical power to parts of over 20 counties in Pennsylvania. PPL also transmits power purchased from other sources. The outage map helps show areas of coverage. They include northeastern PA, parts of the Lehigh Valley, and parts of central southern and central PA. From what I have observed, PPL’s primary radio system for most of its overage area is a 37 MHz VHF low band system. Some areas seem to use a VHF high band system in the 173 MHz range (173.225-173.375) instead. The headquarters building in Allentown, PA is known to use a UHF repeater system, and by all appearances PPL generation stations use low-power UHF radios for internal communications. Some of the information on this page has been collected by other authors and is displayed on the respective county pages. Remote-controlled video systems are licensed under WQLX530 and operate between 3650-3700 MHz from multiple locations.
