Default DuComm UHF IFERN patch

...heard it today.

Maybe I missed it, but I haven't heard any traffic on that frequency since it was turned down a year or two or so ago. Nor have I read anything about it coming back - but I could have missed that too.

Now that the Dupage starcom sites are up . Ducomm can give the old UHF IFERN repeater some attention. It was rumored that it needed repair and the techs were busy with the Starcom sites.

Ironically, I had one scanner on VHF IFERN earlier and one on the UHF patch, and I wasn't able to copy DuComm talking to NWCD on VHF (I was getting a signal from DuComm, but not enough to get the tone and break the squelch), but they were both loud and clear on the UHF patch. Good to see it's back up and running.

If it's in range, I'll probably be running UniTrunker on it.

I haven't been listening to DuComm/Starcom a whole lot yet - is there a TG with IFERN on it, repeated the same way it's repeated on UHF?

No IFERN specific talkgroup listed for DuPage.

And I doubt that'll change, since they're keeping VHF active for fire operations. No real need to patch it.
