===Scanning Ambulance Communications In Lyon County===
 +
In Lyon County, the Lyon County Ambulance is paged on 155.400 / 82.5 PL (called Regional EMS or EMS 400). 
 +
 +
However, the ambulances talk to dispatch and the only hospital in the county -- Merrill Pioneer Hospital Avera (in Rock Rapids -- called "Avera Rock Rapids" on the radio) -- on 155.340 (called Statewide EMS or EMS 340) The Lyon County Ambulance, Lyon County Dispatch, and Sanford use 82.5 PL, some others use 210.7 PL -- but all on 155.340. As far as I can tell, no one uses CSQ.  The callsign WRA644 is correct for Lyon Co. dispatch on both 155.400 and 155.340.
 +
 +
(In the counties to the south and east, 155.400 / 82.5 PL is used for ambulance to hospital communication and communication with their dispatch is either on that frequency or on fire frequencies. If these ambulances come through Lyon county they may contact Lyon County Dispatch on this frequency. Since it's not used much for two-way communication in the county it usually takes dispatch a moment or two to find the right channel.)
 +
 +
The names are a little confusing too as "Regional EMS" is used in the surrounding Iowa counties, but "Statewide EMS" is used also in MN and SD!

Scanning Ambulance Communications In Lyon County

In Lyon County, the Lyon County Ambulance is paged on 155.400 / 82.5 PL (called Regional EMS or EMS 400).

However, the ambulances talk to dispatch and the only hospital in the county -- Merrill Pioneer Hospital Avera (in Rock Rapids -- called "Avera Rock Rapids" on the radio) -- on 155.340 (called Statewide EMS or EMS 340) The Lyon County Ambulance, Lyon County Dispatch, and Sanford use 82.5 PL, some others use 210.7 PL -- but all on 155.340. As far as I can tell, no one uses CSQ. The callsign WRA644 is correct for Lyon Co. dispatch on both 155.400 and 155.340.

(In the counties to the south and east, 155.400 / 82.5 PL is used for ambulance to hospital communication and communication with their dispatch is either on that frequency or on fire frequencies. If these ambulances come through Lyon county they may contact Lyon County Dispatch on this frequency. Since it's not used much for two-way communication in the county it usually takes dispatch a moment or two to find the right channel.)

The names are a little confusing too as "Regional EMS" is used in the surrounding Iowa counties, but "Statewide EMS" is used also in MN and SD!
