About the System

The Ohio County WV Public Safety trunked system is three-site simulcast Motorola P25 system. The system is predominantly used by the Ohio Co Sheriffs Department and Fire/EMS within the county. Also on the system are the EMA, Animal Control and County Government.

Monitoring the System

You will need a digital scanner to monitor this system. Recommended scanners are the GRE PSR-500 and PSR-600, the Radio Shack Pro-96, Pro-2096, Pro-197 and Pro-106, and the Uniden BCD396T, BCD996T, BCD396XT and BCD996XT.

Being that this is a simulcast P25 digital system, you may have problems monitoring the system due to simulcast digital distortion. If you do encounter this problem, you should attempt to get a directional antenna and aim it at the closest tower site or, better yet, aim your directional antenna in such a way that it nulls out the weaker two sites.

An approximation of the three site locations can be found here.
