York County Emergency Services Radio Network

Compiled by Greg Halpin (KB3DCG), York, PA

This page best viewed at 800 x 600 resolution



The following is not an all-inclusive list of all frequencies and talkgroups in use by the emergency service agencies in York County, but is the result of years of listening to local communications systems, supplemented by years of service in local emergency services organizations.

NOTE: In 2009, York County has transitioned to a Project 25 digital trunked radio system in the 500 MHz band. Instead of offering information on the radio system's frequencies, talkgroups, etc., I refer you instead to RadioReference.com where you will find all the information you will need to program your scanner for the digital system.

I still maintain my South Central Pennsylvania Scanner Frequencies list as a separate page with a wealth of frequencies from the region.
