The State Fair of Virginia, which takes place at The Meadow in Caroline County, concludes this weekend. Organizers are licensed for UHF simplex under two callsigns: WQSL847 and WQKD686.
Virginia State Police use talkgroups (6124 and 6125 in 2010) on STARS for traffic control/parking. Interior VSP units use talkgroups (6162 and 6163) on the STARS mobile site. VSP is also licensed for conventional 800 MHz frequencies in analog and digital mode. 856.0375 [ $293] was used earlier this year at The Meadow. 857.5875 [ $293] was used earlier this year at Kings Dominion.
In 2009 and 2010, not much was found for Caroline County units at the Fair. 155.2200 [ d546] may have been used by Caroline Fire/Rescue. The county currently uses VHF frequencies for public safety, but the county will transition to a 700 MHz trunked system; it's unknown if this will see use at the Fair.
