The online home of frequency information for a huge geographical area stretching from the Hocking Hills to the Ohio River, from Portsmouth to Athens, from Gallipolis and Ironton and to Waverly, Jackson, Marietta, Pomeroy and Chillicothe.

Information is arranged by county on the navigation bars and links. Once you access the individual county page, all information is listed by purpose. Since state listings are almost always duplicated in a wide area arrangement (at least in Southeast Ohio), a separate list of state frequencies and users is available and is linked to each county page.

This website covers:

  • Athens County ... Athens, Nelsonville, Glouster, Coolville, Albany
  • Gallia County ... Gallipolis, Rio Grande, Cheshire, Crown City, Thurman
  • Hocking County ... Logan, Laurelville, Murray City, Rockbridge
  • Jackson County ... Jackson, Wellston, Oak Hill, Coalton
  • Lawrence County ... Ironton, South Point, Chesapeake, Coal Grove, Proctorville
  • Meigs County ... Pomeroy, Middleport, Rutland, Tuppers Plains, Carpenter
  • Morgan County ... McConnelsville, Malta, Chesterhill, Stockport, Reinersville
  • Perry County ... New Lexington, Somerset, Thornville, New Straitsville, Bartlett
  • Pike County ... Waverly, Piketon, Latham, Beaver
  • Ross County ... Chillicothe, Bainbridge, Frankfort, Adelphia, Richmond Dale
  • Scioto County ... Portsmouth, Wheelersburg, Lucasville, Minford, New Boston
  • Vinton County ... McArthur, Hamden, Wilkesville, Zaleski, New Plymouth
  • Washington County ... Marietta, Belpre, Little Hocking, New Matamoras, Beverly

By the way, if it's not listed here ... I don't have it. Please don't ask.

Standard radio codes are contained on a separate page. Most law enforcement agencies in Southeast Ohio use the well-known Buckeye State Sheriff's Association (BSSA) radio codes, as do a handful of EMS operators and Fire Departments. The SEOEMS District signals were the de-facto regional standard for the other EMS services who actually use codes on the air. The State Highway Patrol has their own radio codes.

In Southeast Ohio, you'll find a fairly informal radio procedure at most local agencies, with a lot of plain English communication in use. Base stations tend to be identified by callsign (usually law enforcement) or a generic name like Fire Control, City Dispatch, Wellston Fire Base, or a specific County 9-1-1 center. Police agencies tend to occasionally talk in numbers, using unit identifiers, base station callsigns, radio codes and license plate numbers in a stream of spoken, analog data, like 4021-784-33-25-24-21. You'll get used to it.

Effective, February 18, 2008, we added Business, Industrial, Manufacturing, and Utility licensees to our listings in every county! This was the most requested add-on feature from readers everywhere. Base and Repeater frequencies are listed.

We do not list low power channels, data channels, digital paging frequencies, 'mobile only' channels, or microwave hops, since they have little or no relevance to scanner listeners. For now, we don't list Community Repeaters (FB4, FB6, or FB7 rental systems) since these repeaters are shared among several businesses in a particular area, rental customers come and go, and it's difficult to track individual businesses when transmitting on the air. This policy may change in the future.

Unlike Public Safety licensees, Business and Industrial radio users may use a different name on their license. Some businesses are licensed in the name of a parent company, others are licensed in the name of the business owner as an individual. Occasionally, you'll find the old company name still on the license despite a sale, merger, or corporate identity change. With a little detective work, you should be able to determine who you're hearing. Once in a while, you'll find a business or public safety user that operates on an expired license - often for years - because they didn't realize the license expired. If we can verify the user, we'll list those frequencies in our database too.

Additions, deletions and corrections are always welcome and appreciated. If you have any of that stuff to send me, just shoot an e-mail to me at info@seocomm.com. My snail mail address is PO Box 110, Wellston OH 45692.

Thanks, and happy scanning !
